Sometimes home is the refuge you need-and sometimes it isn't. Adelaide Davies, who's been living in Sacramento, returns to Whiskey Creek, the place she once called home. She's there to take care of her aging grandmother and to help with Gran's restaurant, Just Like Mom's. But Adelaide isn't happy to be back. There are too many people here she'd rather avoid, people who were involved in that terrible June night fifteen years ago.
Ever since the graduation party that changed her life, she's wanted to go to the police and make sure the boys responsible-men now-are punished. But she can't, not without revealing an even darker secret. So it's better to pretend....
Noah Rackham, popular, attractive, successful, is shocked when Adelaide won't have anything to do with him. He has no idea that his very presence reminds her of something she'd rather forget. He only knows that he's finally met a woman he could love.
This was a pretty good book. Addy is back home in Whiskey Creek to help her Gran and through a terrible twist of events winds up in the very place she never wanted to be. The place where she was gang raped in high school. She is rescued by Noah a man who doesn't understand why the beautiful woman wants nothing to do with him. Addie can't tell him that seeing him reminds her of his twin brother who was a part of the rape and something much worse!This book was intriguing. Noah and Addy really shouldn't ever wind up together in my mind
because of what he reminds her of and I couldn't wait to see how the author got past that. Ms. Novak did a good job with it, making it believable and not that they just automatically fell into each other and everything was fine. There were issues to deal with and when Noah finds out Addy is in real trouble, he is there. Overall, it was a good storyline and I did enjoy it.
I rate this a 3/5.
