Wood concludes her “Dynasties: Calcott Manor” series, after Their Temporary Arrangement. In The Problem with Little Secrets, a one-night stand with his deceased older brother’s former fiancée had unplanned consequences for hotel magnate Jack Grantham. When Peyton Caron comes back to Hatfield with a toddler son in tow, she knows it’s time to come clean to Jack and his family. As much as Jack wants to get to know his son, he no longer believes in love, but maybe Peyton and baby Noah change his mind. In Keep Your Enemies Close, Merrick Knowles and Aly Garwood shared a memorable single night together—just before learning that they were on opposite sides of Calcott Manor’s biggest mystery. As the Grantham family protector, Merrick is highly suspicious of Aly’s involvement and motives, but he cannot deny his powerful attraction to her. Can he learn to trust Aly before it’s too late, both for the family and for their hearts?
VERDICT Best for readers of the previous books who want to see all the various overarching plot threads of the series wrapped up here.
