Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When Austin King plays host to his distant Southern kinfolk, he unwittingly sets in motion events that will threaten his marriage, his law practice, and his standing in the community. For Austin's eagerness to please his idealistic foster cousin, Nora, is all too easily mistaken for other motives--especially since Nora is all too obviously besotted with him. This book is further evidence that Maxwell is one of our national treasures.
