A few years have passed since book two, and we find that little Sophie Caldwell has grown up. She's skittish about coming back to Hickory Ridge after the way the town treated her as a child at the orphanage, but she is determined to come back and open up the local newspaper. Her goal is to make the newspaper a success and have something of her own.
Ethan has avoided everything from his childhood and refuses to even discuss it. When he meets Sophie, he is entranced by her, even though she prints things at odds with his work at the Blue Smoke resort. Once they get on the same page, Sophie withdraws a little because she believes that her unknown lineage will push Ethan away.
I have to admit that this one was a little more dependent on the first two books than I thought it would be. After reading the first two, I thought it would be okay to read them out of order and not be lost. Even though time has passed and the author has some reminders in there, I can see how someone who hasn't read the previous two might be lost.
Overall, this was a pretty interesting book, but there were a few little things I noticed that seemed a bit out of place. As far as I could tell, at the resort Sophie asks one person about the fighting but then writes about it without getting the other side of the story or even fact checking. Seemed a bit off. Some of her reactions to Ethan seemed odd as well. When she sees him arguing with a man, she immediately assumes he looks down on the man because of his parentage.
All things considered, this was a good series. I still believe that you are okay to read the first two alone, but this one is more fulfilling if you have read the previous novels.
Sophie comes back to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee after moving to Texas with Ada and Wyatt Caldwell when they adopted her as an orphan. She has grown up never knowing who or what she was, but fearing the worst, after being called ugly names.
She meets Ethan Heyward, who is working on a new resort for the town, falls in love with him, but is scared he won't want to have anything to do with her when he discovers that she may have mixed blood.
No more surprises here. Dorothy Love handles this situation with wonderfully well and the reader feels the pain of her characters. It was wonderful to visit with old friends again, too.
I always buy Dorothy Love's books because I know I won't be disappointed. I am eagerly awaiting her next series because it's set in my own home state of SC! Don't hesitate to buy her books. You truly won't regret the purchase.
