However, Edie is harbouring dark and sinister secrets while Buck's nursing a broken heart and an eight year mountain of stubbornness. Thanks to Reece, the two don't exactly get off to a good start, but equally thanks to Reece, something powerful develops in this interesting little backwater. So powerful, it almost leaps off the page.
Buck and Edie find each other irresistible from the start, but from the start, fight against all their natural urges until the inevitable happens. But just when everything seems to start going right, it all turns horribly wrong for Edie and Reece when their past catches up with them.
I was totally drawn into this close-knit community of delightful characters and for me the fictional Hope Springs came alive through the descriptions and realistic dialogue which this author writes so well. The sheer economy of language style tugs the reader into the epicentre of the drama as conflicts and tensions mount to a gripping degree. The final section of the story, when Buck returns from Anchorage, genuinely had me on the edge of my seat. From that point on my Kindle was my constant companion!
'Her Only Hope' was well-plotted, highly convincing and engrossing and Kat Jones is a writer I'll be watching out for in the future. If I had to complain about anything, it would be the delightful Buck's childish streak - his penchant for water and food fights I felt just went a little bit too far at times and I wanted to know more about that huge but fragile heart of his; but if Edie didn't mind, who am I to complain? A great read.
Edie Matthews' first introduction to Buck wasn't a pleasant one. She tangled with him over his remarks about her son and later finds herself pray to Buck's super soaker water pistol.
Sick with a cold from her unexpected dousing, Eden is beleaguered by the constant comings and goings of Aunt Cora. No one knocks in this small town or bothers what time of the day or night it is when they come to call. Buck slowly wins her over as he learns to love the whirlwind she calls her son. Buck brings her roast meat and once she's ready to meet the rest of the town, mostly family, he introduces her.
Both knowing they can't enter into a relationship because they're both still married, Buck to a partner who left him shortly after their marriage for a more appealing life than a small town in Alaska could bring and Edie is on the run from her abusive husband, his beatings, and the law. The boy she claims as her son isn't hers. She's kidnapped him to keep him safe and she's all too aware of what she must do to achieve that goal.
But the two manage to fall in love. Their both hurt from past relationships and ghosts from their past until one day Edie's past comes to Hope Springs and tracks her down. Her ex-husband arrives and it is up to her to keep her son safe even if it means surrendering the only hope she had of a normal life with Buck.
Kat Jones writes a wonderful story laced with laughter and comical situations while facing the deadly serious topic of spousal and child abuse. The story is well written and has a heart warming solution. Anxious moments keep the reader turning the page fearful that Edie will be found out.
