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.
Up until this point, I've loved every single book I've read in this series...yes, some more than others. But for some reason, I just did not connect with the characters in this book. I have no idea why because the writing was great and on the surface, everything about the set-up was fabulous, too.
Sometimes you meet people that you just don't want to spend time with even though they seem like good enough people. That was me with this book, and it makes me sad. But it is what it is. I just didn't connect with the characters enough to really care. Instead of focusing on that, I'll simply look forward to the next book in the series, because I do still love Whiskey Creek.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
