Back Cover Blurb:
Can she ever trust another "bad boy"?

India Sommers once had the perfect family—until an ex-boyfriend broke in and shot her husband. Not only did that cost her the man she loved, a respected heart surgeon and the father of her child, but she also feels responsible. Charlie died because of the people she hung out with before she had the strength to change her life.

Just after moving to Whiskey Creek with her little girl, Cassia, to start over, she's learned that her ex-boyfriend's trial ended in a hung jury. He's getting out of jail; he could try to find her again. And that's not all that scares her. She's extremely attracted to her next-door neighbor, but Rod Amos is the handsome "bad boy" type that's given her so much trouble in the past. If she got involved with him, her in-laws would sue for custody of Cassia.

India has to keep her distance from Rod—but the more she gets to know him, the more difficult that becomes.

My Review:

What a novel! The setting was well developed and picturesque. I felt as if I were actually there. The plot was both heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. I love how Novak was able to seam the two together to create such an unforgettable tale.

I’ll admit, the main characters in this novel surprised me a little. I enjoyed them much more than I’d expect them to. Their quirkiness was precious. At the same time, the tragedy that India lived through completely shattered my heart. I loved that there was more than just chemistry between the main characters. Novak takes the time to develop true friendship and a real relationship between them as well.

This is definitely a solid addition to Novak’s Whiskey Creek series. That said, this novel, as with so much of this series, can easily be read on its own so is also great.
