Why do I have it? This was one of three books that I received all the way from Malaysia. Iris Bromige is a new author for me.
When Pauline Avon arrived at the Cedar house to be a secretary to Mr. Cedar, she never expected mystery and love. Old Mr. Cedar is so wrapped in past memories of his dead son John that he all but ignores his other children. Pauline meets and falls in love with Mark Cedar, but when she thinks her love is not returned Mark's brother Derek - for his own reasons - makes Mark believe Pauline is his mistress.
This is the first book that I've read by Iris Bromige. It was very well-written and suspenseful. I give it an A+!
A+! - (96-100%)
