From Publishers Weekly
A slow start hampers Neggers's latest (after Claim the Crown), but this romantic suspense novel eventually gathers steam as its tantalizing mysteries explode into a thrilling climax. Small-town Cold Spring, N.H., pilot Penelope Chestnut spots what could be a long-lost airplane wreck while walking in the woods one afternoon and stirs up secrets better left alone. Forty-five years before, rich-boy Colt Sinclair and beautiful but poor Frannie Beaudine took off from New York City and disappeared. Now CNN is on the scene as well as the Sinclair family, and Cold Spring is in an uproar, especially since Penelope has second thoughts about disclosing the facts of her sighting. Handsome daredevil Wyatt Sinclair is only one among the many who are suspicious of her, and suddenly Penelope's life is in danger. Neggers has fun with various red herrings while keeping the real secret a surprise to the very last.

The story is based on the plot that quirky irrepressible Penelope finds a 45 year old crashed plane. She is under the impression that the crash victims are still within. So, she does what every adventuresome person would do. First, she alerts the media and then, "Oh my goodness!" she retracts her statement because she doesn't want the town's hermit nor her not as adventuresome but equally quirky cousin to come into the limelight. Never mind that everyone and their mother knows of both.
Okay, let's say I buy this premise but wait there's more. The nephew of one crash victim comes to town to find his missing uncle. Does our heroine show any compassion? No, she's still hung up on saving the privacy of a hermit she isn't even sure is nonthreatening. But she has her reasons because said nephew is a SINCLAIR. Now so far the reader has learned that Sinclairs are thrill and adventure seekers....oh how diabolical, so of course Penelope and the rest of the residents regard them as people of dubious reputation and I guess not having the same emotions as "normal" people. I mean really why would the Sinclair family want to bring home the body of a loved one especially when Penelope has determined the forest is a great resting place.
So enough already, this book was a complete disappointment. How anyone could consider Penelope anything but irritating is beyond me. Get over the constant reminder by the author that she was spoiled as a child, that's suppose to be a legitimate excuse?
The final insult to the reader's intellect is on page 359 (paperback ed.) when Harriet is referred to as Wyatt's half sister, I don't think so...do the genealogy here.
I'm as happy as the next person to escape into a good suspense this was neither.
