Library Journal Review

Recently widowed Anna Farrell goes on a South African safari holiday, a gift from her grown children who hope she will enjoy the diversion. But they don't count on their mother falling in love with Lewis Masters, a successful businessman. In an uncanny coincidence, Anna's journalist son, Jonathan, is investigating a story about the health spa company that Lewis owns. People may be dying from some of the spa's experimental treatments. A leisurely but engrossing story picks up momentum midstream when Jonathan's inside source is murdered. Did Mum's new boyfriend murder the whistle-blower? VERDICT This old-fashioned tale of romantic suspense, dressed up for the 21st century, from the always reliable Fraser (Thicker Than Water) will entertain Margaret Truman fans and readers who like family dramas in the style of Penny Vincenzi.
