My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Adelaide Davies, who’s been living in Sacramento, returns to Whiskey Creek, the place she once called home. She’s there to take care of her aging grandmother and to help with Gran’s restaurant, Just Like Mom’s. But Adelaide’s not happy to be back. There are too many people here she’d rather avoid, people who were involved in that terrible June night fifteen years ago.
Ever since the graduation party that changed her life, she’s wanted to go to the police and make sure the boys responsible — men now — are punished. But she can’t, not without revealing an even darker secret. So it’s better to pretend. . .
Noah Rackham, popular, attractive, successful, is shocked when Adelaide won’t have anything to do with him. He has no idea that his very presence reminds her of something she’d rather forget. Neither does he know she’s the reason his twin brother didn’t survive that party at the old mine.
I've always been a fan of Brenda Novak. I read that she got the idea of this particular storyline from a newsbroadcast. While I do love book series that are based in small town settings, I certainly would not want this to happen to anyone.
I was hoping that the incident from 15 years ago would have ended up being slightly different from what Addy remembered. I loved Noah and Addy's getting to know each other.
Can't wait for the next book in the series!! Hopefully we will see Baxter get his own HEA (secondary romance) in one of the books to come.
If you love the small town settings, track down her Dundee, Idaho SuperRomances. I recently read them all again earlier this year.
