[In A Castle It Can Happen]

To ease the heartbreak of a disappointing love affair, Rachel Coulter agrees to help locate a suitable English castle for her mother's spa chain. When her tour bus breaks down, she finds the formidable fortress she is stranded in front of houses more than ghosts. It holds a different horror—the man she's forbidden to love.

Trace Cardiff inherited the falling down Farnsworth Hall. Despite the childhood memories he holds close, he must sell the monstrosity before it bankrupts him. When his son’s former nanny, Rachel, shows up, claiming she's in the market to buy, he doesn’t believe her. But Rachel's persistence not only stirs all the feelings buried in his heart, it awakens family ghosts who would rather see her disappear...forever.

Caught in a passionate web of lies and deceit, Trace and Rachel must battle their way to the truth. Will the skeletons sleep at last, or will family secrets succeed in driving them apart?


From the start, this book grabbed my attention.  In a rush of events, Rachel was lead to Trace, and it all went uphill from there.  Rachel is dealing with some things, and she throws herself into this project, not expecting all the ups and downs that come with it.

Trace is a little weary of her, but things happen that throw the pair together.  This contemporary title is full of emotion, mystery, and touching moments.  The characterization in the book is strong, with the type of people that stay in your mind when not reading the story.  The plot has twists and turns, it kept me turning the pages, eager to know what's coming next.

Farnsworth Hall is well written, with witty dialogue, and strong leading characters that bring life to this story.  Why not get a copy of your very own?
