About the book: 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.
My review: I don't know about you, but I really love reading these clean billionaire romances! I love the great escape they each are. This one is a re-telling of Beauty and the Beast and I love the contemporary spin that the author put on it!
I liked that you see the story through the eyes of both Emma and Theo. Emma is an amazing young woman she's in the south searching for the answer to her family's question of what the treasure of their former plantation is. And then she meets Theo.
Theo, especially at first, comes across as a beast. He snaps at Emma for taking a picture of a doorknob. And he's unkind at every turn. But there really is a heart of gold underneath all of that beastlyness. I loved the things he does for Emma in the end.
I loved that this book is not only a romance, but there's mystery to it as well. And I loved the gnomes! You'll have to read it to see just what I mean by that!
This is a cute romance that I didn't want to put down. It's a quick and easy read. So cute!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
