New York Times bestselling author Linda Goodnight welcomes you back home to Honey Ridge, Tennessee, with another beautiful story full of hope, haunting mystery and the power to win your heart
Renowned yet private, thriller writer Hayden Winters lives a life colored by lies. As he is deeply ashamed of his past, his hunger for an honest relationship and dreams of starting a family remain unsatisfied, and he can trust no one with his secrets. He’s determined to outrun his personal demons, but the charming old Peach Orchard Inn and a woman whose presence is as gentle as a sparrow’s song stops him in his tracks.
Carrie Riley is afraid of everything from flying to thunderstorms, and pretty much of life itself. But meeting the enigmatic writer staying at the inn emboldens her to learn everything about him. When they discover a vulnerable boy hiding at the inn, Hayden is compelled to help Carrie protect him. Soon they’re led to a centuries-old mystery that haunts Hayden’s sleep, and his only safe haven is Carrie. As the secrets of the past and present cause their lives to become entwined, all that’s left to come to light is love—if the grim truth doesn’t tear them apart first.
“Her beautiful storytelling, coupled with a well-crafted, poignant plot, will touch readers’ hearts from the first page.” –RT Book Reviews
Review: Linda Goodnight is one of my favorite Christian authors. I've read many of her books for the Love Inspired line as well as Harlequin Romance. She is a master of clean beautiful stories that pull you in.
In this book we have a guy that's a thriller writer (think Castle) and a girl that is pretty much afraid of everything. She's like the girl version of Charlie Brown.
This is a beautiful sweet love story that weaves history and the present.
