Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
I fell in love with him when I was seven. I scraped my knee, and he helped carry me inside.
Our love story was the talk of the town until a woman told everyone she was pregnant with his baby. The only rational solution was to high tail it out of town and never come back.
My best friend needed a place to hide, and you can't get much more covert than my family farm, so I came back. For her. It was supposed to be temporary, and I wasn't supposed to see him, but that's what happens when you live in a small town where everyone knows each other.
Being the sheriff in a small town was never my dream. My father died and my older brother took off, so I had to be the one to look after my mother. I stayed. I fulfilled my duties as a son and I protected my hometown.
My life wasn't perfect, but I was content. Until I locked eyes with a ghost from my past, Kallie. I thought it was my imagination, it couldn't be. I loved her most of my life, but now I hated her.
The town gossip mill was going into overdrive. I kept my head down and my mind off of the woman who shattered my heart when she ran away. She didn't give me a chance to explain, it didn't matter to her then. I didn't matter.
A second chance is never promised, but now that mine is right under my nose, I'm not sure I can take it.
Okay but semi cliffhanger
I enjoyed the book, but don’t appreciate the semi-cliffhanger and the extortion tactics to get you to buy other books in the series. I don’t mind the different points of view angle in a series, but the “if you want the full story you have to get the next book” etc burns me. My rating therefore is a 3.5
This book was so good I couldn’t put it down. I finished it in two days. Can’t wait to read the next one.
Good ol’ southern love story
Love these characters so much ! Heartbreak and excitement alongside having to go bak home way to start a fun story for sure !
