Sometimes home is the refuge you need-and sometimes it isn't. 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 isn't 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. He only knows that he's finally met a woman he could love.
Another exceptional story from author Brenda Novak set in the small gold-rush town of Whiskey Creek. I have enjoyed this series since the beginning. The author knows how to get to the heart of the matter on every occasion; tackling some tough storylines. Past, present, and future events overshadow the romance between Noah and Adelaide. However, this author’s distinctive writing style creates a beautiful tale worthy of a high recommendation.
This can be read as a stand-alone, but I recommend reading about Noah’s friends.
