My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another seamless entry in Brenda Novak’s Whiskey Creek series!
Home to Whiskey Creek, Book 4 in the Whiskey Creek series by Brenda Novak, is the story of Adelaide Davies and Noah Rackham. This satisfying installment is about tragedies of the past that continue to wreak havoc in the lives of those in this community in the future: a gang rape, the truth behind the death of the town’s favorite son, and a young man’s heart-wrenching dilemma about whether to tell his secretly adored, life-long friend about true nature of his sexuality.Characters from past books make appearances giving continuity to storylines running throughout the series and welcome updates to the lives of those featured in the previous books.
The story opens with action! Noah rescues Addy from a mine reuniting her with the object of an immense high school crush, Noah himself. The tension between the two is immediate although they become easy-going and comfortable with each other early on in the story even as she pushes Noah away and insists to herself that she cannot become involved nor stay in Whiskey Creek. The author has Noah and Addy take two steps forward and one step back maintaining our suspense but with the underlying feeling that this could only come to a satisfactory conclusion. As I was rooting for this couple from the very beginning – yay for that!I recommend this good story to readers who have enjoyed the previous books in this series and anyone looking for a wonderful second chance romance.
