Disheartened and tired, Samantha Warren returns to Vermont during the winter break. Her passion for history rekindles after finding an old smuggler?s chest hidden in her grandparents' attic.
Will she be able to return to New Jersey without her heart being smuggled like the chest once was? Or is it already too late?
If you like stories of smugglers, caves, mystery and romance, then this short story is for you, because it has it all. Samantha finds solace is rediscovering and old wooden carved box in her Gran’s attic, and is piqued when her Gran refuses to share the full mystery surrounding the box.
Add to her annoyance, Tim’s re-appearance in her life, and you have a recipe for emotional melt-down. With her usual finesse JoAnn Carter bonds her readers with her characters and has them routing for the heroine and hero.
This story is full of the ‘feel-good’ factor and gives her readers that emotional sigh of satisfaction at the end of the story. A comfy chair, a warm fire and aromatic mug of chocolate and Smuggler of the Heart is all you need when you want to enjoy some ‘me’ time.
