Ethan Heyward’s idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists from all over the country.
When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She’s equally intrigued but fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she summons the courage to tell him, Ethan’s own past unexpectedly and violently catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.
This book was amazing. I read it in less that 24 hours which is fast for even me. I instantly fell in love with Sophie and Evan. While I was reading the book I hoped that they would end up together because they seemed so perfect for each other. The author does a great job of describing things and also does a great job of keep the reader on the edge of their seats. I didn’t put this book down until I was finished with it and I am going to read the other books in the series along with any other books that the the author has written.
