When Cassandra Madden was 12 years old, she fell in love with Jefferson Ames, a young man she met at one of her mother's business conferences. She was a lonely child, with a cold mother, and holding onto her love for Jeff helped her cope with her isolated life.
When she grew up, she went to college and even met a man she thought she'd marry, but Jeff was still in her head. She broke off her near engagement and went to Williamsburg, Virginia, where she secretly got herself a job as a nanny to the widowed Jeff's young child.
Even though Cassie was living in Jeff's house, seeing him every day, she still couldn't seem to get his attention. But then, one day, she heard shots coming from the mansion of Althea Fairmont, a woman the world called "the greatest living actress". Cassie ran to investigate and, in an instant, her safe little life was turned upside down. She began to learn that all the people around her weren't who they claimed to be. Everyone had secrets, and until Cassie unraveled those secrets, there was no chance for happiness between her and Jeff.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
It just ends. Nothing else. It is like there is supposed to be another book and there isn't. HORRIBLE ENDING.
This is a great book. I wish there was a second one. This is one of my favorites.
it was fun, but I've liked others much better. I kept expecting something to happen.
Loved this book so much I've read it 4 times!! You almost feel you are Cassie.
"New book? Maybe not"
The further into this book I got, the more I knew what was going to happen. They said this was a new release, but it's been done previously. I guess it was renamed and republished under another name. Would like to know if anyone else agrees?
It kept my interest thru the whole story. I was always anxious to get back into the car to start listening again. I have a kindle fire and I bought a $14 Universal FM Transmitter so I can play my books thru the car radio as I am on the road often. This transmitter was very easy to set up. Even I could could do it.
Cassie as she was a young innocent child who grew up with a positive attitude about life
Barbara McCulloh is a very good narrator as her voice is easy to understand and she can change her tone/expressions nicely for each character.
