About the Book:

Toni DeLuca, the Italian owner of DeLuca Construction, finds herself confronted with doubts about her father and his possible deceptions—all because of the mysterious pink notes she’s been receiving.

Relations with Perrin Douglas who has a troubling history—but the first man in years who’s interested her—is building to a peak. Yet Perrin’s own personal problems and his doubts about women and God, keep getting in the way.

Gossip, a Spanish proposal, an inheritance, and a sabotaged construction business may ruin Christmas for Toni’s employees as well as her own happiness.

Will a mysterious person succeed in pulling off the biggest scam Appleton, West Virginia has ever seen? And will this culprit destroy Toni’s last chance at happiness with the man of her dreams?

At Christmas time everything should bring joy to the world, but for Toni Deluca everything is not joyous.  Someone is trying to sabotage her father’s construction company that Toni now owns.

Perrin Douglas, a writer and widower, has come to Appleton, WV to work on his book.  He intends to hire Toni’s company build an addition on his house, but believes Toni is a man.  Perrin’s son, Blake, likes Toni and is impressed she is running her own construction company.

I found myself wanting to read to the end to find out how the book ends.  So if you love Christmas, mysteries and romance, check out this book for yourself.

This book about bullying offers a lot of action and captivates the reader.  The book’s target audience is for ages 10 and up and I found it appropriate for those ages.  Based on my initial information about the book, I wanted to really be drawn into this book.  While it had moments where I was drawn into the story, others left me wondering what was going on in the story.  I feel most young people in the target age group will enjoy this book.  So check it out for yourself.
