In this book the main character is a man named Lance Michelli who is sent on a mission by his grandmother. Little does he know that in taking on this task he will meet the fiery and independent Rese Barrett. Rese who loves doing renovations has just purchased an old villa and has chosen to make it her final project. As the book progresses you see how each character has secrets that they discover and how each secret threatens to destroy the budding relationship that is taking place. Through the first part of the book there is only a general reference to God but as each secret is revealed and the emotions intensify there is more of a tie into religion. There was not as much reference to God in this book as I would have liked but it was a great story to read. It shows that it is always best to be up front in any situation because you never know when it may come back to bite you. It also shows how easy it is to say that you are doing God's will but in reality you can be doing your own will. What I did like about this book was the connection to family and also how well this story was written. We also see that it is always best to be yourself and not to try and be like someone else. The only person that we should all try to be like is Jesus and he is the only person to place on a pedestal and expect the best out of. As man we are all prone to failure of some kind so its not wise to put man on a pedestal and expect only the best.
