A special thanks to netgalley and Bethany House for an e-book copy in exchange for an honest review.
My review: This is the first book I have read by this author and I highly doubt it will be my last. I was drawn in to the story line almost immediately. Although for some reason it did take me a little while to get into the book but once I did, it was hard to put down. I even teared up in a few places. I do hope there might be a sequel as it ended and left me with questions about what might happen between Kelli and Shane. A great read! 4 stars!
Book description (from Goodreads):
A Contemporary Drama of Family Lies
and Forgotten Loves After her father and stepmother’s accidental death, Kelli Huddleston sorts through their belongings and learns a shocking secret. Years before, her father faked his death during a boat wreck at sea–and faked Kelli’s as well. He’d run from a wife, a son, and a daughter back in Tennessee, meaning Kelli has a family she’s never known.
She’s already cashed the payout on her dad’s life insurance check and looks at it as her ticket to a new life. The lure and puzzle of digging into this hidden past is too much to resist, and she soon finds herself in Tennessee. When the trip threatens to open doors to the past better left shut, and her plans for the future are threatened, Kelli must make an agonizing choice that will change her life forever.
