Katherine Barclift had it all: the perfect job, the perfect car, and what she thought was the perfect marriage. But when her entire world collapses in one stomach-churning instant, she hits the road and keeps driving until that so-called “perfect life” is just a dot in her rear-view mirror.
A chance encounter leads her to make a pit stop in Boot Creek, a drowsy little North Carolina town where she can call herself Katy, soak up the peace and quiet…and drink in the bluer-than-blue eyes of Derek Hansen, a local doctor still wrestling with his own painful past. Both Katy and Derek are wary about giving romance another shot, but they can’t deny the intense attraction between them. And if being in Boot Creek has taught them anything, it’s to take life as it comes and never pass up a chance at true love…no matter how wounded your heart may be.
Another winner from the wonderful Nancy Naigle!
A very interesting storyline.......Katy discovers her husband is cheating
and runs away. She arrives in Boot Creek on the weekend
of the Blackberry Festival.
There she meets Derek, a man with his own troubled past. The inhabitants of Boot Creek are real characters and make Katy
very welcome. As does Derek! She soon makes herself at home there
and settles into the quiet town.
When her ex turns up, he is loud and demanding
and this really stands out and creates a clashing tension!
Nancy's books are always lovely gentle stories about
lovely gentle folk and I always look forward to reading her new books.
If you haven't read any of her work,
this predominately peaceful romance is a great place to start.
