Book Blurb

Gemma Ranford wants the job cataloging the documents of the Frazier family so much that she is ready to do battle to get it. Fascinated with history, and desperately trying to finish her dissertation, she's hoping against all hope that the papers will yield new information to invigorate her research.

What she didn't expect to find is references to the Heartwishes Stone - believed by most to be pure legend - and said to grant wishes to anyone named Frazier.

As Gemma learns more about the family - and even begins falling in love with the eldest son, Colin - it becomes increasingly clear that their wishes are actually coming true. Together, Gemma and Colin must work together to find the stone that's been missing for over 100 years - and with an international thief also on the hunt, the clock is ticking. Because in the wrong hands, no one named Frazier will ever be safe.

My Thoughts

Gemma Ranford is a history student working on her dissertation. She is told about a job offered out of this little town Edilean in Virginia. Mrs. Frazier has just acquired a bunch of books that hold paper history of her husband's family from England. She goes to interview for the job and meets Colin Frazier, the oldest son. She is told she got the job and starts going through boxes only to read about a family story about a Heartwishes Stone.. She is of course intrigued by this and most find out more. Through out her learning more about the Frazier family history she starts spending a lot of time with Colin. Strange things start happening around town and they are thrown into the middle....

This is about as typical as a Romance Novel can get, but the characters are well developed and I found myself liking them all. You get to see how the characters from previous books are, which I always enjoy. I love the small town feel, you never have any secrets in a small town. It was a well developed story and I enjoyed it. I would probably read it again if the opportunity came about, but it didn't strike me as a favorite.
