Vivian Wood is desperate. After her beloved brother dies of a sudden aneurysm and her mother develops Alzheimer's, she needs a good job and a place to stay. She finds it at The Seacroft, a Cape Cod seaside mansion ruled by a mysterious and demanding woman looking for a personal assistant.
Vivian soon discovers that being broke and having to deal with her cranky new boss are not her only problems. The gardener at The Seacroft, Cody McGraw, is young, gorgeous, and the bane of her existence-until she starts falling for him.
But Vivian isn't the only one captivated by Cody's charms. Their sultry employer quickly takes an interest in him-and the developing relationship between Cody and Vivian is threatened by the loss of their jobs and more, should they upset The Seacroft's exotic mistress.
Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Cape, The Seacroft is a steamy story of difficult choices, heart-wrenching sacrifice, and the ultimate salvation of love.

Sweet romance and so much more!
--I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
This is my first Aaron Paul Lazar book, and was a little concerned that it was book 2. It was perfectly fine as a stand alone novel. This book had a little of everything in it. Intrigue, suspense, hot sex, innocence, family...you really could not have asked for anything more! The Seacroft brought us to Uvi, and her wickedness, the personal assistant, Vivian and the gardener, Cody. We learn about Vivian's brother and mother, and how their problems have affected her life, and how they continue to be a constant worry. The relationship that grows between Cody and Vivian is sweet and loving. Uvi...I can't even begin to tell you how I love to hate her! There are several background characters as well that help shape the warmth of this romance. It was a pleasure to listen to.
Gwnedolyn Gruyor does an amazing job. Her voices for the characters are distinguishable and entertaining. This is a good listen and is highly recommended.

Best Romantic Suspense Thriller!
Any additional comments?
The Seacroft is one of the best romantic suspense thrillers I've ever listened to. Written by Aaron Paul Lazar, I consider it comparable to thrillers written by Linda Howard and Julie Garwood - it's that good!
The story begins with Vivian who recently quit college after her brother died suddenly of an aneurysm and her mother developed Alzheimer’s soon afterward. She accepts a live-in job as a personal assistant for a demanding and eccentric female writer at a Cape Cod seaside mansion named The Seacroft in order to pay for her mother's long term care.
Another employee at The Seacroft is Cody, the gardener and handyman. He is similarly aged as Vivian and lives in an apartment over the four-car garage. As hard as Vivian tries to dislike Cody, she can't help but be attracted to his boyish charm and carefree spirit. Just as the pair start to really fall for each other, their sultry boss seduces Cody and becomes obsessed with him. In only a few days, Cody and Vivian survive a hurricane, rescue Vivian's mother from a flood, and defend a murder attempt on Vivian's life. What better setting is there to fall in love?
Gwendolyn Druyor did a fantastic job narrating this Audible version of the book, which was given to me free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review. Her narration flows naturally at an even pace and she portrayed urgency in all the right places. She also used different voices for all characters. I definitely recommend the Paines Creek Beach series to anyone who enjoy well written romantic suspense novels.
