-Linda Lael Miller, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"Romantic gold by a superior novelist."
-RT Book Reviews on When Lightning Strikes
"A hero in need of redemption, a heroine up to the challenge, and an idyllic California gold country setting brilliantly launch Novak's foray into the thriving 'small-town community' market."
-Library Journal on When Lightning Strikes
"[The characters'] heartwarming romance develops slowly and sweetly. The sex is fantastic, but the best part is how Simon and Gail tease and laugh as they grow closer."
-Publishers Weekly on When Lightning Strikes
"It's steamy, it's poignant, it's perfectly paced-it's When Lightning Stikes and you don't want to miss it!"
-USATODAY.com's Happy Ever After blog
"In this sensitive, passionate, and heartbreakingly poignant second installment of her Whiskey Creek series, Novak masterfully explores what happens when a woman whose entire life has been consumed by playing a variety of roles casts off her suffocating masks and, with the support of an unexpected lover, embraces who she was, is and can be."
-RT Book Reviews on When Snow Falls (2012 Reviewers' Choice Winner and Nominee for Book of the Year)
"With a great supporting cast of characters Novak fans have come to know quite well, When Summer Comes is a magical addition to the already heartwarming Whiskey Creek series."
"[Home to Whiskey Creek is an] engrossing, character-rich story that takes a hard look at responsibility, loyalty and the results of telling (or concealing) the truth."
"Affecting, painful, sometimes funny, but ultimately satisfying, this engrossing tale of love and forgiveness takes on real problems and gives its characters the strength and compassion to come through with flying colors. Real people-with all their virtues and vices-live in Whiskey Creek, and Ted and Sophia will be two more you'll be glad to have met."-Library Journal on Take Me Home for Christmas (Starred Review)

The subplot was so CRAZY out there that it took away from the main characters. If you enjoyed When Snow Falls with Dylan & Cheyenne you may not want to read this book. I would have preferred to have Ms Novak kill off Cheyenne than go ahead with this insane story. I kept thinking this can't be happening. There was not even a trace of Cheyenne in this book. This was a completely different person. I wondered if someone else had written this book.
The only person in this story I was hoping would find some happiness was Aaron. I was hoping someone would give him some credit for turning his life around but it never happened.
Presley kept having the same conversation in head throughout the entire book. I know she had a lot to overcome but I was hoping she would have some more confidence in all she had accomplished.
Riley should never have been part of the story to begin with. He has never been a favorite character, for me, to begin with. Also, he never even gave her a second glance all the years she lived in Whiskey Creek. Presley was pretty clear from the beginning she wasn't really interested in more than a friendship.
I'm curious how the events in this story will play out in the next book.
I won't be buying the next book in the series. I have no interest in watching the trainwreck unfold as everyone continues to betray poor Dylan in the worst way.
I only finished this book because it was a gifted copy.
Wow - I'm so put off and disturbed by the actions of the characters in this book I'm not sure I can continue reading the series. If you enjoyed Cheyenne and Dylan's HEA in When Snow Falls, you might not want to read this book. Cheyenne's on the train to Crazy Town and took Aaron and Presley with her. The whole Cheyenne/Dylan storyline is WRONG. Period. I can't believe the book ends the way it did with them. I thought this book would resolve the huge secret of Wyatt's paternity Cheyenne kept at the end of her book, but instead we're left with an even bigger secret - one that can't possibly bring her any kind of HEA. The Cheyenne/Dylan storyline bothered me so much that it really overshadows everything else in the book.
So many characters in the book keeping secrets and lies, supposedly justified, but not really. In addition, the "love" story of Aaron and Presley didn't work for me. I didn't feel like they had chemistry. Even the "big" ending made Aaron look bad. I'm all for second chance romances, but in a lot of ways their original romance (such as it was) was more toxic than anything. I wish more focus had been on them working through their issues and trying to have a real relationship versus the "let's have fun til you leave" fling they chose. I also can't understand why we had the "triangle" with Riley either. It was the same storyline from the previous book - just insert Riley instead of Eve.
For being a contemporary romance, this book is a little dark and depressing for me. I guess technically there is a "HEA", but given the major cliffhangers, the book didn't feel complete and makes the HEA hard to accept because you know there is more to come. I tried to like Aaron and Presley's story, but this book just wasn't my cup of tea.
