Fat-free cheese is okay—unless you’ve tasted real cheese. The same holds true with love, as Julia discovers when she meets Owen Denny, the strikingly handsome CEO of The Bradley Corporation where Julia now works. As Julia is forced to decide whether or not to follow her heart, she’s dragged into the mystery of the disappearance of her sister’s fiancé and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones without sacrificing her own heart?
I'm super excited to share this book with you all today! This is a new author to me and I can tell she is going to be a new favorite! I do believe this is her debut novel.
The one thing confusing me right now is the blurb. The main character's name is Juliet. Not Julia. ?? She doesn't even go by Julia in the book. At all. ??
Other than that, I really loved this book! It was so easy to settle in with. I was hooked from the very beginning and couldn't put it down. There is a bit of suspense and intrigue to the story which slowly unfolds in mostly flashback form at first. Then, when we are caught up, the past and present collide. The suspense never felt too heart pounding or overwhelming. It definitely had a lighter feel to it.
The characters were believable and I really liked them. Juliet is a smart and witty girl. I loved how her family was her center. They rallied and took care of each other. Juliet's brother, Everett is one of my favorites. I sure hope he gets a book of his very own. :)
I'm looking forward to more by this author!
