Contemporary Romance/Family Life
Tracing her ancestry leads to a whole new family
Impossible Liaison is a well written novel with a family twist. Set in Auckland, New Zealand with a cast of likable characters, it tells a story of two survivors with a rough upbringing. Ms. Ashby has woven together a tale of dislike, distrust, secrets, and undeniable attraction and gives us the happily ever after ending. This is the first book by Anne Ashby that I’ve read. Looking forward to reading more.
Zoe’s learned to hide her feelings. An unhappy upbringing taught her all about trust and relying on others. Her aloneness is ended when she miraculously finds a loving grandmother anxious to share Zoe with extended family. Unnerved, Zoe begs they temporarily keep their relationship secret. Dr. Connor Matthews returns home disheartened by the carnage he witnessed during years of charity work overseas. Discovering a scheming housemate hoodwinking the old lady (Bess) he’s come to love helps him set aside his disillusionment. He concentrates on ridding Bess of this unsavory character. Zoe digs in her toes. She provokes the insufferable Connor, taunting that she’ll leave only when Bess asks. Connor vows to oust her as more reasons to suspect Zoe’s honesty surface. The issue becomes clouded as Connor and Zoe grow closer. Too soon Connor realizes it was not Bess who needed protecting, but himself.
