Palace of the Fountains

Caro Kingswood answers a plea from her half-sister Sancha and travels to Spain to design a new garden. At first she has a blissful time at the Palace of the Fountains. The charismatic Joe Spenser appears there and, as he courts Caro, persuades her to reconsider her tangled feelings about desire.

Gradually Caro becomes aware that her sister Sancha’s marriage is in trouble. Ann Grant, hired by the family to catalogue their collection of Toledo swords and knives, has disappeared and Sancha suspects her husband Felipe.

Soon Caro uncovers a maze of dark family secrets. Worse, Joe tells her that Ann was his beloved sister, and he has persuaded the family to admit him so as to find out what happened to her. So was his interest in Caro herself real?

Matters come to a head during a local fiesta, when the real murderer of Ann Grant targets Caro herself.

Red Roses for Authors:

This is an excellent romantic suspense that will keep the reader on the edge of their seat as they read this one. The story slowly pulls the reader in and before the reader knows it they are hooked and not willing to put this one down until they find out just what is the truth. The twists and turns are brilliantly subtle and will keep the reader guessing as to who is behind everything and just what exactly is going on. This is one to pick and read as the reader will not be disappointed in the end. I give this one 4-1/2 red roses.
