"Interesting romantic suspense"
Seventeen years ago Simon Riley fled LaRue, Oregon because
of his crazy uncle and a stable fire he caused to become a
famous photojournalist. He finally comes home to learn
what happened to Uncle Gus, who five months ago apparently
committed suicide. However, the email Gus sent that same
day to Simon sounded paranoid not suicidal as his uncle
mentioned he has proof that will shock everyone. Simon
wants to find out what Gus alluded to though returning
When Gus' house is not fit to stay in Simon takes a room
at El Kent's B&B. She was his girlfriend when he left
town and is angry with him for never returning for her.
El treats Simon like a guest, not the person she always
dreamed would come back for her. Simon is upset that she
is engaged to Brad Mitchell as the attraction between him
and El is still hot. She informs him that she never
forgot him, but no longer lives for dreams. Neither
realizes that the person who Gus was trying to expose is
crazy and willing to kill again.
This is an interesting romantic suspense due to the strong
attraction between the two lead protagonists and a
wonderful mystery involving the hero's uncle as holding
proof of something or was delusional. Simon can become
irritating with his saying that he only causes trouble and
his constant leaving, but readers will root for him and
the courageous heroine to make it. Though the villain is
so crazy he could not hide his insanity as he did for
decades, fans will enjoy this you can come home for a
second chance at love.
