OrangeReviewStarAfter serving 17 years in prison for a fatal accident she didn't cause, Phoenix Fuller is back in Whiskey Creek to help her difficult, reclusive mother and get to know Jake, the son she hasn't seen since the day she gave birth. Sadly, Riley Stinson, Jake's dad and the man who is raising him, just wants her gone—and so do many of the townsfolk, especially the family of the girl she supposedly ran down. But Phoenix is not the frightened girl who left years earlier, and when the sparks begin to fly, she is more than willing to take the flak and fight for what she knows is right—and the man she's never stopped loving.
VERDICT A courageous, humble heroine intent on getting on with her life, a hero torn between his feelings and others' expectations, and a surprisingly mature teen make this another engrossing addition to Novak's addictive series. Novak (The Heart of Christmas) lives in Rocklin, CA.
