Blurb: Elise Drummond has never forgotten her first love-and never expected to learn via the grapevine that he was back in Brookville and living with her mother. Sam McCade had broken her heart, and she wasn’t about to let him destroy her mother’s as well. A quick trip back to Kentucky to lay down the law and she could back to the safe life she’d built for herself in Kansas City. When Sam McCade went on the run in the middle of the night to save his sister from her abusive husband, there was only one person he could trust to help them, Hannah Drummond. He expected the local gossips to have a field day with his return to Brookville, but he never dreamed Elise would roll into town to check out the situation for herself. And he certainly never imagined that in order to save his sister, Elise would be willing to sacrifice herself as the pawn in a dangerous game of catch the monster when his brother-in-law decides to take back what he wants no matter who stands in his way.

Review: Oh, did I love this book…from the beginning to the end! When Tim calls his sister, Elise, to tell her their mom is shacked up with a younger guy, the fun started. I laughed so much when she gets to town and indeed, the younger guy is staying with her mom AND they are whispering and sharing knowing glances. The history between Elise and her mom’s boytoy is too much for her to handle and I had so much fun reading about her reactions while getting glimpses into their past.
A truly good read, perfect for an afternoon swinging away with the wind chimes playing and the spring sun shining.
