"Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her high-end restaurant from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina's Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs. But things at the Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney's estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney's only hope of quick cash, but will the discovery of an old necklace and a Depression-era love story change everything?"--Back cover.

Learned a bit about the Lost Colony of Roanoke

Although this book was recommended by Susan Wiggs, I was disappointed.

It takes FOREVER for the story to get rolling, and I found the letters from Whitney's great-aunt Alice tedious. Further, I didn't find it plausible that Whitney didn't know her grandmother had a twin. I didn't find it plausible that someone whose restaurant business was about to fail would become obsessed with decades-old letters. The romantic tension between the real estate developer and attorney wasn't very plausible either.

I was quite annoyed by the mystery of Roanoke's Lost Colony because Sir Francis Drake rescued his cousin Sir Walter Raleigh's colony on June 19, 1586. Maybe some of them didn't want to go back to England. Dunno.

But, the most annoying aspect of the book is the rushed ending which left much of the story's plot open to speculation. Sadly, this book needed serious editing which it didn't get.
