“As a student of Greek and Roman ancient history, I especially enjoyed the short paragraphs at the beginning of each chapter, which focus on a specific herb; its history and its primary uses over the centuries as an essential oil. I went so far as to bookmark each chapter for future reference when writing my next novel; proving that an entertaining story can also be a wonderful learning experience. As to Winslow Eliot’s writing style…it is a mixture of: part Mary Higgins Clark, in that both authors weave a web of intrigue within their spellbinding thrillers; part Virginia Woolf, in sentence structure and character development; with a dash of Danielle Steel, delving into the dregs of human nature. I highly recommend it… it is one of the few novels that I started reading the moment I awoke, and could not fall asleep that evening until the last page was read.” Dee Marie, author of Sons of Avalon series.
Heaven Falls is the most elite health resort in the world. Billionaires, politicians, and celebrities flock to recuperate and pamper themselves at the famous facilities. But they also flock for another reason.
“You CAN buy love,” states the glossy Heaven Falls brochure. “Don’t let anyone say that you can’t.”
Heaven Falls offers something no other resort does: the thrill of a romantic interlude. Romance with a complete stranger – romance that feeds the hungry heart and nurtures the soul. The ecstasy of falling in love comes with no strings attached, no headache, no misunderstandings… Just a hefty price tag.
Sounds pretty good? Single mother, unemployed Tess thinks so. Especially when the owners of the resort invite her and her ten-year-old daughter to move there. Not only that, but, once there, she is guaranteed a job, a home, and a lifetime of financial security. And before long, she herself is falling in love. But Heaven Falls isn’t heaven, and when the worst thing imaginable happens, she has no one to turn to for help, except for the man who betrayed her.
