Some people had skeletons in their closets; Maggie Fitzgerald had one in her yard. She'd retreated from her fast-paced life, seeking peace and solitude. And if surly landscaper Cliff Delaney's rude manner and irresistible sexuality weren't disturbing enough, now an old murder shattered her peace entirely, imperiling her life and forcing her right into the protective arms of the most irritating man alive.

My rating:

Celebrity composer Maggie Firtzgerald moves to the other side of the country to get out of her frenetic life in L.A. She buys a house and decides to have a proper garden, hiring landscaper Cliff Delaney.

While they're digging up ground for her pond, they find human bones and it soon becomes clear someone didn't want those bones to be found and still doesn't want for the truth to come out...

This book was safely middle ground. It wasn't particularly exciting (either in the romance or suspense department), but it was still well-written and rather well-paced to keep the reader from getting bored.

The suspense left much to be desired, since it spent most of the book pushed into the background, and even the final reveal wasn't that intense, gripping and/or surprising.
The romance was quite disappointing, since I didn't particularly like either character (she had deep issues and he was quite a snob), and it felt rather rushed and unbelievable.
