Mysterious dreams draw costume designer Isabella Silviera to Angel's Bay, the California coastal town where angels occasionally dance above the waves. Bestselling author Barbara Freethy enchants again in this emotional and compelling tale of family secrets, abiding friendships, and heart-touching romance.
Isabella's drive to Angel' s Bay would have ended in tragedy when her car slid off a cliff if she hadn't been rescued by Nick Hartley. As he helps her to safety, she realizes he is the man who has haunted her dreams. Nick, however, is committed to reconnecting with his estranged teenage daughter, refusing to respond to his powerful attraction to Isabella. And Isabella's police chief brother has his hands full with a missing mother, an abandoned baby, and an unknown father. What is Isabella's role in the mysteries -- both past and present -- that swirl around the town?
When she starts helping at the Hartley family theater, all the pieces begin to link together. Loves found and lost, heartbreak and happiness, courage and betrayal are all part of the patchwork quilt of the community -- and of life. Isabella's gift is seeing the patterns ...
At Hidden Falls is an enchanting romance story set in a small California town. The characters are likable and well-developed, the plot interesting and the picturesque Angel's Bay is a place anyone would love to visit. Isabella is haunted by bizarre dreams and a feeling of imminent danger that drive her to Angel's Bay where her older brother is the chief of police. Unexpectedly for a girl used to big city life, Isabella finds love, friendship, and a place to belong.
I enjoyed At Hidden Falls and now intend to read the other books in Barbara Freethy's Angel's Bay series. You can get a taste of this charming novel by reading an excerpt at the author's website.
