Why Hearts Keep Secrets
Can the heart keep secrets, even from itself? Without revealing her plans, artist Miranda Jones fled her life of privilege to start over in Milford-Haven. Her heart knew what she wanted to do, and where she wanted to be. But now she must figure out why she had to keep it all to herself.
While she focuses on her first major art show in her new town, is she paying enough attention to the agent who handles her money, or to the odd absences of the man who claims to care about her? Why won’t he reveal his real career? And why does her own family keep a secret that could derail her new-found confidence? What is her own sister not telling her? Will her own heart unlock the secrets in her life?
