People in small towns have long memories. When former town “mean girl” Sophia returns to Whiskey Creek with her tail tucked between her legs, there are some folks who say she got what she deserved. But nobody deserves what Sophia has endured. Fleeing an abusive husband who has gone missing (and whom she hopes is dead). Sophia comes back home; she will do anything to protect herself and her daughter, even beg for help from Ted Dixon, the man she once trashed. Turns out Ted needs a housekeeper and Sophia will fill the bill nicely…………..
A nice turn on the “perfect” heroine showcased in most romance novels. Sophia is believable and likeable despite her past actions, and who doesn’t love a man who can forgive and forget?
