Bridget (Bridey) Calloway has lived with her aunt ever since her parents were killed when she was sixteen. Now, at the age of twenty-nine, Bridey is once again alone when her aunt passes away. Her adventures are only beginning, however, when her wealthy aunt leaves her, not the family home, but a hotel in a small town in Arizona, plus a charm bracelet that her aunt always wore. With the bracelet came the instructions to never let it out of her sight. Aunt Moira was determined to give Bridey a fresh start away from the strict Boston society. Taggart Sloan was a wealthy business man, trying to bring life back to the small mining town of Potluck. He was not as wealthy as people believed, unfortunately, because his wife had been spending his money faster than he could make it. She had left him shortly after their marriage, and had been living in San Francisco until her recent death. His wife's treatment of him left him wary of women. Bidey too, was disillusioned about love. Having lost her virginity to a young sailor when she was sixteen, Bridey is convinced that all her heartache has been repayment for her sin. Regardless of their pasts, Taggart and Bridey become friends when Bridey arrives in Potluck. But when a local man, Nick Mallory, learns the secret of the charm bracelet Bridey wears, he tries every possible means to obtain it. Taggart and Bridey realize Nick's interest and soon learn the secret themselves. The danger escalates as the race is on, and Bridey eventually understands her aunt's wishes. Bridey not only discovers her family's secrets, but she discovers love along the way as she and Taggart finally give in to their feelings for one another.Ms. Fitzjames spins an engaging tale of love, adventure and mystery. She keeps up the pace while only including those elements crucial to the story development and the characters motivations. Wonderfully adventurous and romantic! A delightful read you won't want to put down! Characters that peak your interest just before they run away with your heart!Claire Haynes -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.
