Item Details

A self-described rolling stone, Tessa Harlow leads hiking tours for adventurous vacationers. When a freak injury during a trip that has already had its share of tragedy forces her to take a break, she heads to the mountains of Los Ladronas, New Mexico, to research a possible future tour. She has no clue that it is there, in very hip Los Ladrones, that she will embark on the adventure of her life. Shortly after arriving, Tessa begins to have ominous nightmares -- or could they be memories? Though she remembers nothing from her early childhood, she knows without a doubt that Los Ladronas beckons -- that the secrets to her past lie buried in this place. As she begins to unravel the scars of her childhood, she meets Vince Grasso, father of three, including an eight-year-old girl who is as lost as Tessa is herself. With the help of Vince and his brood, and the denizens of Los Ladrones, Tessa Harlow may finally find her way home.

Good read. Beautiful setting in New Mexico. Coincidences are rampant,mount the plot was satisfying.

Food, dogs, a little romance and a lot of secrets. Engaging story.

My first book by Barbara O'Neal, and one of the best books I've read in a while. The characters are so real and vibrant you feel you know them, or would like to. The dogs are wonderful, and oh so smart! I will be sure to read anything written by her.

I like Barbara O'Neal's books. They are light reading with an interesting story line and include delicious recipes that I can't help but to try. However, I wasn't really impressed how she had Tessa (the story's main character) just jump into bed with the leading man. The focus on the sex really detracted from the interesting story line.
