With Good Intentions by Jo Huddleston

A sweet romance spiced with deception, set in 1959.

Jean Stewart and her mama stand firm to protect their family business from a big-city developer’s takeover. Oscar Wainworth sends his son William to convince the ladies to sell their property. William has an instant attraction to Jean, believes he shouldn’t be the one to discuss the sale with the Stewarts, and gives them a fake name. If they know he’s a Wainworth, he’s likely to find himself out on the sidewalk.

One lie leads to another until William may have dug a hole too deep to escape. By stealth he learns that Jean can’t associate with anyone who is dishonest. To win Jean’s love, William must convince her that his lies flowed from good intentions.

My Review

With Good Intentions is a a wonderful romance story but also has deception! Ever felt like you was deceived. Well Jean Stewart really felt like she was.  When big city developers come to town to buy up property Jean and her mother are determined they are not selling! So far it is working but Oscar Wainworth is down to his last man to try to persuade the ladies to sell. That last ma being his own son. Who goes there and uses a false name. OK now you all ready can see where deception is coming in. One lie leads to another then pretty soon you are in a mess. That's just what happens with Will. Can he get things right with Jean? Can Jean trust him again? Awesome  story with wonderful characters. Another great book by Jo Huddleston.
