Sylvie Gardner never thought that she would be a runaway bride. However, she cannot go through with her wedding to Tim Endicott. She knows she is not in love with him and does not appreciate his domineering ways.
Alex Clemenceau, private investigator, is hired by Sylvie’s ex-fiancé to find her. He says that she has stolen something from him. Alex finds Sylvie at a charming inn in the Poconos.
Serendipity House is the perfect place for Sylvie to relax as she gets to know the owner and her daughter as well as some of the regulars who stay at the inn. Far from the hustle and bustle of New York City and her overbearing mother, Sylvie feels right at home. Things take a different turn though, when mysterious, yet attractive Alex becomes a guest at the inn, Sylvie catches an intruder in her room, Serendipity House’s owner passes away, and the inn is sold.
Serendipity House is a light, fun romance. Although Sylvie seems a bit too naïve at times, her character is likeable. Alex is a strong male, whom Sylvie certainly gives a run for his money. The other characters are just as endearing, especially Alex’s grandmother. Ms. DeBacco certainly sets the scene of the Poconos in all its beauty through the seasons. The reader is easily able to capture the feeling of the countryside through the pages of this book. The romance is sweet, yet inviting in this cozy novel.
