Lucie's Review: My first trip to Dry Creek--and I loved it!
A strange girl appears on Gracie Stone's doorstep, and utters the name "Calen" before passing out.
As it would turn out, the girl, Renee is Gracie's neighbor, Calen's daughter. Calen has always had a spot in his heart for Gracie Stone, but has always respected her space and choices.
Gracie struggles to rebuild her life after prison and hold her head high, is it possible that she might have a second chance at love?
Though I haven't read any of the earlier books I had no trouble getting into this latest installment. There were times when I wished that I had read the other books so that I could have understood a little more of the backstory.
There was great interaction between Gracie and Calen, and I liked how they were a little older than your typical romance couple would be.
Gracie had to overcome the ghosts of her past and realize that her late-husband no longer had a hold on her anymore. I really liked how Calen wasn't too agressive in the relationship, but gave Gracie the time to find herself again.
Gracie's sons and daughters-in-law were so sweet, and created just a great sense of community. Overall this was a great read, I really liked how the relationship grew throughout the book. There was also a mystery, with plenty of suspense. I'm thinking that I'll be taking some more trips to Dry Creek in the future!
I received this ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
