Jenny Brouchard has lived in Comfort Crossing all her life. Her family is wealthy and her Father lords it over everyone. Jenny attended the private school in town but she didn’t feel entitled because of her family at all. Jenny was well-liked by everyone. After her long-time boyfriend broke up with her, she married his best friend, Joey Brouchard and had a son, Nathan. They were happy until Joey contracted cancer and died. Now Jenny was left with a very hurt teenaged son who started letting his grades go and started getting in trouble with the law. She was struggling with trying to get through to Nathan and keep her own sanity. Luckily, she has her best friends- Julie and Becky Lee to help her.
Dr. Clay Miller has returned to Comfort Crossing with his two daughters. His wife had left them and his oldest daughter was acting out and the younger one stopped talking. He hoped coming to his hometown and his Mother would help his girls find their compass again. Meanwhile, he was helping out at the clinic while Doc Baker took a vacation. He knew he would have to see Jenny while he was there and find out what exactly happened so long ago. He couldn’t tell her why he had broken up with her; but he did want to know why she married Joey so fast.
Nathan and Clay’s daughter Danielle struck up a friendship. Clay wasn’t happy about this since Nathan had been in trouble; but they would be leaving Comfort Crossing after Labor Day so he guessed it would work out. He was grateful that Nathan was very nice and included his daughter Katie in this friendship. However, their friendship meant that Clay and Jenny would be seeing more of each other than they figured on.
What would happen when all the secrets in Comfort Crossing were revealed?
This book is really suspenseful and really good.
17 years ago......Jenny and Clay were high school sweethearts, who had been in love for years. Right after Clay heads off to college, Jenny realizes she's pregnant. She travels to the college an hour away just to share her news, but before she can tell Clay that she's carrying his child, he tells her he wants to break things off with her. She is so distraught she walks away without telling him about her pregnancy. Clay didn't want to break it off with the woman he loved more than life, but he was young her father had made threats against Jenny and his mother. He felt like he was doing the right thing back then, because as far as he knew... her father's threats had real merit, or so he thought.
Back home and scared to death of what her father will do if he finds out she's pregnant, she runs into Clay's best friend, Joseph. She tells him about what happened with Clay and the situation she was in. He agrees to marry her both to give the baby a name, and to protect her from her fathers wrath. A few years later Clay comes home to find his best friend and Jenny married and with a child. He is so hurt and upset that he goes back to college without another word to either of them. Later he marries a woman he doesn't love, because she's pregnant with his child. Their marriage is rocky from day one, but he does what it takes to make things work.
Now 17 years later..... Clay comes back home for a few weeks to take over for the hometown doctor, so he can enjoy a long overdue vacation with wife. Clay is now divorced and raising his 2 daughters all alone after his wife walked out on him and their children, with one of the doctors from his practice a year ago and hasn't looked back.
Jenny lost Joseph to cancer 6 months ago, and both her and her son Nathan are having a rough patch of sorts. Just when she thinks things can't get worse, she runs into the one person who has the ability to turn her life even more upside down than it already is.
Secrets and lies always have a way of coming out just when you least expect them to, turning your world upside down.
I love this town and it's cast of characters. The close cameraderie between Izzy, Becky Lee and Jenny is one to be reckon with, for sure. They have each others backs through thick and thin, and will always stand strong and united, against anyone who tries to hurt one of them. If that means keeping a secret that has the abilty to impact several lives for 17 yrs, then so be it.
I am curious. I've read Izzy's and Jenny's story now and was skimming through all of the other introductions in the upcoming books, trying to find BeckyLee's story....but I didn't see one. Did I just miss it or pass by it? Or is there not a book written for Becky Lee?
