Veiled Gems by Mary Manners
Lila Brooks believes in fairytale endings for everyone but herself. She coaxes her dream of opening a wedding shop into reality when she commissions Morgan Holt to transform a run-down Victorian house into an all-inclusive bridal boutique, Diamond Knot Dreams. Clover Cove’s residents have whispered that the house is filled with spirits, but superstitions have no place in Lila's life.
Morgan Holt spent the better part of his youth transplanted from one foster home to another. Separated from his older brother, Gunnar, at an early age, they’re reunited shortly after Morgan’s arrival to Clover Cove. But the last thing Morgan wants is to trust his heart again to a family—or a woman as beautiful as Lila Brooks. He has plans to finish work on the Victorian and then ride off into the sunset, a move he’s perfected over the years.
Soon Lila and Morgan have a chance at their own Happily Ever After, but will events from the past destroy their future?

A new series by Mary Manners. I love it so far. Veiled Gems is in the Diamond Knot Dreams book 1. Lila Brooks moves to fulfill her fairy tale dream. She is going to open a Wedding shop. She bought this old Victorian house. Hiring the work to redecorate it to Morgan Holt. A story goes along with the house it has spirits living there from the pass . But what was that that moved across the window? Why is the third floor door locked and no key?
Morgan has his own skeleton's in his closet. Can Lila end up with her fairy tale coming true or will things of the pass keep them apart?
Awesome story with developed characters. Hope to see more of them.
