It's a beautiful day in Louisiana, just outside New Orleans, for some old fashioned sleuthing set in a fairytale.
Ms. Hoagland nails the description of Indigo Pointe so well it feels as if the reader is actually walking and talking with Emma and Theo, seeing the grounds full of possibilities through their eyes. It's an enchanting setting for this beauty meets beast tale. Naturally, there are misunderstandings on both sides, but all comes right at the end. Plus, there's a mysterious treasure to find that could bring them closer together or tear them further apart.
Sweet, clean, and full of heart. This is a great modern twist on a classic tale.
Landscape architect Emma Treager is searching for answers to a family mystery. She stumbles across an important clue at the run-down Indio Pointe Plantation where mystery floats through the air like the ghosts of the former owners. She can’t pass up the job that property owner Theo Lambert offers like an enchanted rose, despite his reputation of being a beast of a boss. As the two of them delve into the secrets of the past, Theo and Emma discover that finding clues is almost as much fun as finding each other.
This contemporary retelling of Beauty & the Beast with a touch of Romeo & Juliet is the next sweet romance in the Destination Billionaire series.
