Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

IN A WORLD OF HIDDEN DANGERS, IT'S EASY TO GET LOST.... <br> After discovering her true identity, Willow De Beers leaves her North Carolina town to live with her real mother and her half-brother in Palm Beach, Florida. Now caught up in a world of glamour and extravagant wealth -- where nosy neighbors, fueled by gossip and greed, keep an eye on her eccentric family -- Willow is determined to make a fresh start.<br> Thatcher Eaton, the debonair attorney, uses his intoxicating charm once again, this time convincing Willow to give him her hand in marriage. It¹s to be the ritziest wedding of the decade, even by Palm Beach standards. But as future plans are made, families feud and rumors fly -- and Willow soon learns the horrifying truth: from the darkest of secrets, there is no escape....
