Lilian doesn’t remember anything about her life before the day Maggie Muir found her on her front porch—a toddler, abandoned and alone. And maybe that’s okay. She has a beautiful life at Muir Farm, including an adopted family she adores and a successful career as a lawyer. But she also has a secret . . . one that raises just as many questions about her future as it does her unknown past.
And, of course, it would be private investigator Wilder Monroe, her brother’s best friend and the bane of her existence, who sniffs out her secret before anyone else.
Wilder has spent the past three years trying to close the one case his father couldn’t—the mystery of Maggie Muir’s long-lost granddaughter. But the decades-long search has become more tangled than ever. It’s become more personal, too. Not only are the Muirs the closest thing to family he has left, but if he can solve this mystery, maybe he'll keep himself from drowning in the one he can’t . . . the truth about his father’s death.
In the midst of secrets and swirling questions, Maggie asks a favor of both Lilian and put aside their bickering and work together to plan her summer wedding. It’s a big ask, made all the more difficult when danger comes calling at Muir Farm. But if the two enemies can stand each other long enough to pull off the event of the year, they just might solve a mystery in the process.
And the biggest discovery of all? That sometimes the one your heart longs for is the last person you ever would've expected.
I've been waiting for this story since I read the first book. I just knew it was going to be good because, well, Lilian and Wilder. Okay, okay. Wilder. Please don't tell the others, but he is my favorite. Don't get me wrong, I've loved all the books and characters in this series so far but there is just something about Wilder. Sigh. Wilder.
One of the things I love about this series is the ongoing mystery/investigation going on. It threads through all three books and it involves everyone. This author knows how to write characters that draw you in and make you love them. This Muir family is honestly so easy to love. And can we just talk about the setting for a moment? Seaside. That's all I really need to say. I love seaside settings.
Best news today? The author said in her newsletter that she will be writing another book in this series!! That makes me VERY happy. If you haven't read this series yet, what are you waiting for? It's on KU if you have that. :)
