Co-owner of Undiscovered Treasures, Caroline Gibson particularly relates to the ballerina music box: forever spinning and never going anywhere. But when her dream prince appears, she's sure her prayers have been answered. Trouble is, even though family and friends hint that the local artist is the guy for her, Caroline takes matters into her own hands.

Andrew Carrington has loved Caroline since they were kids. But when contracts suddenly arrive begging for his signature, Andy thinks this just might be the way to win the only woman he can ever love.

And then there's the hitch in both their plans. Someone is stealing Andy's paintings, and why would they when he's an unknown so far? Is something deeper going on neither understand?

The author does a great job writing stories that have suspense, faith and a hint of romance that keep readers coming back to her books. In this story we focus on Caro and Andy. Each one is searching for their destination and look to God for answers. Caro was quite interesting as she writes plays for church groups. I remember all the times I would get ready to put on the Children's Christmas play every year at church. I would spend at least a month searching for just the right one. It must have been exciting for Caro as she is approached to write a play for a very large church. She was thrilled but perhaps had a bit of butterflies dancing in her stomach as she undertook the big challenge.

I loved the mystery surrounding Andy's paintings. Someone was stealing them and it was becoming a real puzzle as to why and who? Can you imagine spending time painting and then all your work is gone in a spit second? I found it funny that Caro didn't quite get the popularity of Andy's work. As I got more into the story I wondered what Caro had against Andy. He was so sure they would be a team forever but she was sending out vibes that she didn't share his dream.

Andy needs help finding out who is stealing his work and turns to Caro for help. At times I think she was a bit snotty to him and I wanted to tell her to adjust that big chip on her shoulder. The story is fun to read and the mystery does take on a few surprises. We all desire to know what God has planned for us, but sometimes we miss it because we are too busy being stubborn and prideful. It's a great lesson in waiting on God and trusting Him.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion
