Izzy has always wanted to be a filmmaker. Her ten-year class reunion is looming and she is desperate to go as a success. She is going to make a documentary about gangsters and their favorite vacation spots. And she has the perfect opportunity with the land her family owns, but is getting ready to sell. She travels to the White Bear Lodge. But she hides her true identity when she learns the Murphy family is not exactly her family’s biggest fans.

Gib’s family owns the run-down resort on the Gordon land. Their 100-year lease is about to expire and they need to come up with the money to buy the property. He is hoping to convince the filmmakers to show the lodge in it’s best light. But before long it is not just the resort he hopes makes a good impression on.

Author Pamela Ford has given us a fantastic book about following our dreams. That is what both Gib and Izzy are trying to do. I was intrigued to know how or if both would be able to obtain their dreams when forces seemed to be against them. And just what will Gib’s reaction be when he learns who Izzy really is…the daughter of the people who are taking away his grandfather’s dream. And will the Murphy’s be able to save their family business? The suspense was KILLING me! Ms Ford didn’t rush right into it and keeps the reader guessing.

What I found so amusing was Izzy’s film partner, Shelly. She was sure there was something underhanded going on and she let her imagination run wild! She made me smile on more than one occasion!

Ms. Ford penned a wonderful story that I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope to read more from this author in the years to come. If you like Harlequin Super Romances, then this one will not disappoint you.
