Crime scene investigator Deke Matthews is on leave at work and having some down time to himself while trying to put the pieces of his life back together again after a tragedy has left him shaken and doubting himself. When he family reaches out for some backup in a little family drama, it leads him to make a stop and keep himself busy in Golden, Georgia for a little while to see what kind of dirt he can dig up.
Attorney Grace Harper finds herself pulled home from her hectic job in Atlanta when her mother suddenly needs some TLC. In typical family fashion, only she seems to be able to do anything right in their family adventure tour business even though she has siblings "supposedly" helping out. She never expects to become attracted to her temporary hire Deke, but he seems to understand her like nobody else does. Can he convince her to take a chance on him when all is said and done or will her family continue to suck the life out of her?
Setting is a strong element, for it just happens to take place in my state, and the small-town north Georgia area of Golden came alive. Grace’s family business of outdoor activity tours allowed for some vivid nature scenes.
The lead characters of Grace and Deke are realistically drawn with flaws and are easy to connect with. Past events in Deke’s law-enforcement career had left him questioning his work and even life in general. Grace, who has a strong drive to control, finds herself in over her head in taking care of her mother, working to save the family business, and trying to repair strained relationships. The chemistry between these two is strong, with some great kissing scenes.
My favorite element was the relationship drama within Grace’s family, fueled by the dad’s criminal behavior and neglect, and guilt over being the cause of his capture. Most troubling, however, is the negative way Grace’s controlling nature affects her mom and siblings … very true to life. As the sweet relationship between Deke and Grace grows, it’s easy to see how good they are together, and that Grace had touched the empty places inside of him.
There’s room for more development in Deke and Grace’s story, as well in each of their families – not to mention another Matthews brother or two. Hopeful for more stories in this series! Recommended.
I received a copy of this book through Prism Book Tours. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
The setting is quaint and so well-drawn that you can almost smell the pine trees and hear the waterfall in Grace’s happy place. And poor Grace definitely needs a happy place where she can go to decompress from trying to run the world – or at least her family. Deke, too, needs a place to heal after a tragic loss and the subsequent self-guilt he’s put upon himself. These two characters are perfectly suited for each other – to be a soft place to land & an advocate and support. As well as some pretty swoony kisses and spark-filled chemistry!
Bottom Line: This is a great series for readers who love a clean and sweet romance that still has some sizzle. The continuing storyline from the first book carries well into this book – tantalizing us with tidbits of information while also leaving us dying to know more & easily catching readers up who haven’t yet read book #1. Tender & swoony, the plot, characters, and setting are set smoothly against the writer’s easy read flow.
(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.)
When Deke and Grace meet (he takes a job leading tours for her), sparks fly, but Grace insists upon keeping family first. Deke quickly concludes that Grace is the woman for him. But how can he convince her that going back to Atlanta isn't what she should do, not when they can enjoy the big outdoors and each other in the little town that has captured his imagination even as she has captured his heart and helped to heal it? Then there's the issue of the man he learns may be scamming his mother. Will that behavior be stopped in the next installment of this series?
