This is a laugh out loud action packed fast paced story that will keep readers engaged and on the edge of your seat as you keep turning the pages.

Lizzie has just purchased a house, it is old and run down and yes needs a lot of work but she is determined to get it done. She has decided to work from home and needs the attic fixed up first as that is going to be her office when she starts. Lizzie realizes that she is going to need help so she hires handyman Riley who happens to be gorgeous but Lizzie already has a boyfriend but she can look or drool.

Riley jumps in and starts work straight away and he finds Lizzie fun and cute and easy to talk to. He is single, works hard and comes from a great family. He is ever the gentleman and cannot do enough for Lizzie and finds that there is a pull towards this fun loving woman.

Things start to happen when pulling up floor boards as an engagement ring and very old letters are found that had belonged to the previous owner of the house, Avis, who has passed away and Lizzie and Riley are determined to get to the bottom of the mystery but they did not count on stalkers and break-ins and danger around a lot of corners, this ring holds a lot of secrets and there are people who will go to any lengths to stop them from being revealed.

This is the first book by MS Prentice that I have read but it won’t be the last. She has bought to life a cast of endearing characters that had me laughing and there are those nasty ones that are out to cause trouble and of course the journey for Lizzie and Riley has so many ups and downs in it. I loved Lizzie the girl who comes first in class with foot in mouth disease that will have you cracking up with laughter and Grandma Mabel is just the best. Lizzie’s family will keep the laughs and love coming as well. I do highly recommend this story.

4/5 stars for a great story
