Summary

Summary

Caroline Dawson survived the town gossips who whispered behind her back. She survived the slow death of her husband, Roscoe Lancaster, the richest man in the county and her senior by three decades. But she feared she might not survive Rink Lancaster, her husband's son. Years before she married, when she and Rink were teens, he had introduced Caroline to her first tremulous taste of love - and then broke her heart. Now Rink is back. He says he wants to settle his father's estate. But driven by a storm of emotions as undeniable as before and more dangerous than ever, what he really wants is to settle the score with Caroline.

Library Journal Review

Bittersweet Rain is an unabashedly romantic story, with all the trappings: a breathtakingly beautiful heroine, an unbelievably handsome hero, a dastardly villain, and a stately mansion. Caroline Dawson, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, married the richest, most influential man in town, someone 30 years her senior. However, as a young girl, she fell in love with Rink, the young man who later became her stepson. Now, her husband, the evil Roscoe, is dying and has asked that his son come home. Caroline and Rink are determined to ignore their past association. However, the fire between them is still very much alive. Although the plot is fairly predictable, Brown has created some appealing characters. Joyce Bean reads with great skill, making it easy to become involved in their lives. Recommended for public libraries where Brown and romance fiction are popular.--Nancy Reed, McCracken Cty. P.L., Paducah, KY (c) Copyright 2010.
