About the book:
When widower Rich Redman returns to Pennsylvania with his young daughter to sell his deceased grandmother’s house, he discovers Grandmother Gertie’s final request was for him to find a missing relative and a stash of WWI jewels.
Torrie Larson, single mom, is trying to make her landscape center and flower arranging business succeed while attempting to save the lineage of a rare white rose brought from Austria in the 1900s.
Together, the rich Texas lawyer and poor landscape owner team up to rescue the last rose and fulfill a dead woman’s wishes. But in their search to discover answers to the mysteries plaguing them, will Rich and Torrie also discover love in each other’s arms? Or will a meddling ghost, a pompous banker, and an elusive stray cat get in their way?
EXCLUSIVE EXCERPTHe leaned against the counter watching Torrie Larson. “I have a problem.”She studied his downcast face. “Can I help?”“I was trying to decide which necktie to wear and couldn’t.” He held up the three ties his assistant had purchased for him.She dried her hands on a dish towel. “I’m assuming the sport coat is navy blue.”“Yes, it’s in the car. “How’d you know?”“You seem like a classic kind of guy who likes navy.” Brows wrinkled in concentration, she fingered each one, then selected the dark blue tie that looked like someone had scribbled on it in colors of lighter blues and gold.He set the other two ties on the counter, flipped up the collar of his shirt, and wound the tie around his neck. “Do you have a mirror?” he asked, fumbling with the ends.“Here, I can do this.” Torrie stepped up to him and took the two ends of the tie lying on his chest. “With three brothers, I’m a pro.”She was standing so near his lips brushed the hair at her forehead, and she was wearing a heady perfume all over her luscious body. It smelled like a mixture of citrus and flowers and could drive a man absolutely insane. If they didn’t get out of this small apartment, he was going to grab her right on the spot and kiss her senseless.Within seconds, she had the tie in place. She lightly patted his chest. “There. You look perfect.” When their eyes met, Rich swore she could read his mind. She nervously stepped back, spun, and dashed to the living room where she grabbed her purse and a lacy wrap from the back of a recliner and hurried to the front door.
