   —RT Book Reviews

Twenty-five years ago, Juliette Taylor walked away from her career as a supermodel after a chance encounter with a handsome stranger named Marcus Stone. She never regretted that decision—and never forgot the man who gave her the courage to change her life.

These days, Juliette's ministry is providing encouragement to women who spend their time caring for and nurturing others. She uses her successful skin care line and spa retreats to rejuvenate these "servers."

Isn't it time someone took care of you for a change?

That's the theme for this weekend's retreat, and Juliette can't wait. But as she heads for the retreat at the world-renowned Palm Grotto Resort and Spa, she runs into Raven, a fellow supermodel from back in the day known for her fiery red hair and equally fiery temper. Within minutes, Raven flies into a rage and threatens to kill Juliette.

Two hours later, Raven is dead.

Filled with guilt and sadness, at first Juliette doesn't even notice the arrival at the spa of Marcus, aka "TOTGA," The One That Got Away. Now she must sort out her feelings for this man from her past even as she tries to learn who killed her old modeling rival and why—before she becomes the prime suspect.

Or the next victim.

Kelsey Tate's great-grandmother Adele endured the sinking of Titanic and made it safely to America, where she not only survived but thrived. Several generations later, Kelsey is a rising star at the investment firm Adele helped to establish nearly 100 years ago.

Now facing a hostile takeover, the firm's origins are challenged when new facts emerge about Adele's actions on Titanic's tragic last night. Kelsey tries to defend the company and the great-grandmother she has long admired, but the stakes are raised when a co-worker is found dead in the office—and police won't say if it's murder or suicide.

Forced to seek help from Cole Thornton, a man Kelsey once loved—and lost, thanks to her success-at-all-costs mentality—she pursues mysteries both past and present. Aided by Cole and strengthened by the faith she'd all but forgotten in her climb up the corporate ladder, Kelsey races to defend her family legacy, her livelihood, and ultimately her life.

Summoned to the bedside of Willy Pedreaux, the old caretaker of her grandparents' antebellum estate, Miranda goes back for the first time, hoping to learn the truths of her past and receive her rightful inheritance. But Willy's premature death plunges Miranda into a nightmare of buried secrets, priceless treasure, and unknown enemies.

Follow one woman's search through the hidden rooms of a bayou mansion, the enigmatic snares of an ancient myth, and the all-consuming quest for a heart open enough for love—and for God.
