Rich in Love
Three magnificent mansions share a cul-de-sac on a beautiful Florida bay. But for three unforgettable couples, the exclusive neighborhood opens their hearts to the humble richness of hope, love, and faith.
When Ann Thomas is summoned to Florida for the reading of the will for the father she never knew, her life is forever changed. She learns she has a half-sister, she has the chance to inherit millions, and her name is really Angelina. Brett Hamilton, CPA, is assigned to help Ann spend a lot of money in a short period of time. As soon as his ‘assignment’ with her is over, he’s headed to Peru to be a missionary, something he’s felt called to do his whole life. Ann still lives with the pain of having a mother who chose world missions over her. Can Ann risk giving her love to someone who might give it back, or should she ignore her growing feelings towards Brett to keep her heart safe?
This book frustrated me at first. Ann went to the reading of her father's will and found out that she has a half-sister. She didn't ask any questions that I sure would have. Her mother wouldn't talk about her father ever while she was growing up. Why? She doesn't find out until after her 30th birthday. That wouldn't have worked for me. I'd been asking tons of questions and driving her crazy until I found out something. Ann does finally start asking questions and getting the answers she needs. She also gets the opportunity to do something that any woman would love - the chance to spend 1 million dollars on herself. I love that Ann finally listens to the voice of God. Then she can finally follow her heart.
