An ex-con, wrongfully
convicted of a heinous crime, returns to a small mountain town
determined to prove his innocence, reclaim the heart of the woman who
helped put him behind bars, and win back the right to meet the daughter
he learned about in prison. But his arrival stirs up dark secrets and
re-ignites a fierce and consuming passion that just might get the woman
he loves, and his child, killed.
Nine years ago Rachel
Salonen and Jeb Cullen were soul mates--deeply, irrevocably in love.
Until the night two young women went missing from a party in the woods.
One was found raped, beaten and pregnant with no memory of what
happened. The other is still missing. A small mountain community was
torn apart and a young relationship shattered when nineteen-year-old Jeb
was arrested for the heinous crime, and Rachel was forced to help put
the man she loved behind bars. Now, nine years later, Rachel believes
she's finally put the past to rest when her sister dies suddenly in a
fire and she's made guardian of her adopted niece. A child, she learns,
who was conceived that terrible night of violence, a child whose DNA was
used to convict Jeb. And when Jeb is unexpectedly released from max
security, Rachel sees that the past has only just begun... ... Because
Jeb has come straight home to Snowy Creek. To prove his innocence,
reclaim his life, his home. And to meet the daughter he learned about in
prison. A daughter Rachel will do anything to protect. And when the
town turns violently on Jeb, Rachel will once again be forced to take
sides. This time she chooses with her heart. But her decision could cost
everything she holds dear--including her niece's life. Because someone
in town will do anything to keep the truth buried...even kill.
Die momentan etwas knapp bemessene Zeit hinterlässt Spuren bei meinem Lese- und Postingverhalten. Das tut mir sehr leid, lässt sich aber leider momentan nicht ändern, also hoffe ich, dass ihr es mir nachseht.
Im September waren es "nur" 7 gelesene Bücher, darunter befinden sich aber 3 gerade entdeckte Favoriten ♥.
