Life has been complicated for Sydney Ross. Desperate for a new start, she leaves home but, during her travels, witnesses something that will forever alter the path of her life. On the run for the last six years, Sydney finds herself living the life of a nomad until she one day stumbles into a small town and hopes she’s finally found a place to put down roots. With a good job in a local diner and, for the first time ever, friends who feel like family, things start looking up for Sydney. The biggest shock of all is catching the eye of the town’s most eligible bachelor, the sexy sheriff, Wade Jenkins.
Sparks fly between them, and it’s not long before Sydney believes Elton, Missouri could be the home she’s always wished for. But Sydney’s past and her secrets have a way of catching up with her. When a brutal murder shakes the small town, Sydney is terrified that the countdown has begun on her time in Elton.
Have the shadows from her past found her again? The people who mean the most want her to stay, but that would put everyone, including her daughter, at risk. Can Sydney put her faith in Wade or will she keep running from a danger that even she doesn’t fully understand?
I’ve enjoyed reading Victoria’s for quite a while now, so when I saw that there was a blog tour for her latest release I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of it.
From the get-go we are introduced to a pretty intense situation, but don’t really know why or what’s happening. As the story progressed, though, we slowly got the information. I really enjoyed the suspense and mystery, trying to figure out just what was going on and if they’d be able to.
The two main characters that we got to hear from were Sydney Ross and Wade Jenkins. They were so fun to read about, especially getting to see how they both felt about one another without the other knowing. They were sweet and frustrating and adorable. I really loved their journey and didn’t want it to end.
Whenever I get to the end of one of Victoria’s stories, I always find that I want more. And from what I can tell, this will be the first book in a series. I hope that is the case and definitely can’t wait to read more. If it’s possible, I’ll be one of the first in line to get my hands on her next book!
