Rated 4 out of 5 by from Keeps improving with every book Caprice De Luca is going to stage Alana’s huge home for sale so Alana can marry Ace Richland. However many things happen in the meantime. Alana has a really nice cat Mirabelle. The doctor in training and Grant the attorney are both interested in Caprice. Which one will she choose? Her Grandmother ends up being taken to the hospital overnight. Many things happening in Caprice’s life and all those around her. I really enjoyed this book and do not want to give anything away. If you want to know more this is a great book to enjoy.
