Description
Home is where her heart is When Presley Christensen returns to Whiskey Creek with her little boy after two years away, she has completely changed her life. She's made peace with her past and overcome the negative behavior that resulted from her difficult childhood. Now she's back in the small town that was the closest thing to "home" she ever knew—the town where she can be with the sister who's her only family. There's just one catch. Aaron Amos still lives in Whiskey Creek, at least until he moves to Reno to open a branch of the Amos brothers' auto body shop. And no matter how hard she's tried, Presley hasn't been able to get over him. Seeing him again makes the longing so much worse. But she hopes she can get through the next few months, because she can't fall back into his arms...or his bed. She's come too far to backslide now. And there's a secret she's been guarding—a secret she'll do anything to protect.

        April 15, 2014
        After abruptly leaving town two years before, Presley Christensen has revamped her life and come home to Whiskey Creek as a yoga instructor and massage therapist, determined to give her young son, Wyatt, a better childhood than she'd had. The draw is her sister; the danger is auto-body shop partner Aaron Amos, her old love--and Wyatt's father, a secret she intends to keep. It should be easy to do with Aaron planning to open a branch of the family business in Reno. Yet, considering that sparks still sizzle between them and they've both grown up a bit, maybe something more was meant to happen. Familiar characters reappear, fresh ones come on the scene, and new challenges arise, sowing tantalizing seeds for future books in the series. VERDICT Once again Novak's Whiskey Creek springs to life in all its realistic, gritty Gold Country glory as two determined, likable people come to terms with their pasts and give love a chance. This poignant, heartfelt romance puts a refreshing spin on the classic reunion/secret baby theme. Novak ("Take Me Home for Christmas") lives in California.
