Return to Three Creeks
"Like the Twilight Zone. That couldn't be good. The Twilight Zone never had a happy ending."
Liz hasn't been back to her hometown in fifteen years - not since that terrible time in her life. And nothing short of her grandmother's request for help in packing up her house would drag her back. But here she is, in Three Creeks once again. Not much has changed - her family is still crazy, the town is still small and everything is haunted with memories. Except for Jack McKinnon - her grandmother's new neighbor. Jack is a bit of a mystery. Besides being a newcomer with little known past, he is daring enough to try new crops in a town that doesn't take change well. But the real danger comes from his previous life. Can Liz and Jack overcome all that is between them, or will their pasts keep them apart?
My Opinion: This was a very well written book with some good lines and quips. The romance is light but sweet. More of the emotional side of the story seems to concentrate on Liz trying to deal with the past and memories of a tragedy that happened before she left the small town. There is a large cast that involves half the small town and are sometimes a little hard to keep them straight. The mystery of Jack's past kept the momentum and intrigue up, despite slow action that would otherwise exist. Overall it's an interesting read and has some sweet moments and good family values. The pumpkins on the front are perfect for this time of year (yeah, I'm kinda corny sometimes).
Note: You can buy the Kindle edition on Amazon. If you want a print version, you will have to order it form Harlequin's website.
I received a free copy of this book for review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
