Return to Deb’s Reading Room

At Home in Stone Creek

What can I say? I have yet to read a Linda Lael Miller story I don’t like. Chock full of Ms. M’s trade-mark heart-wrenching emotion, strong family attachments,  sentiment, and in this story, a twist of dangerous intrigue, At Home in Stone Creek took me to my happy place.

Ashley O’Ballivan wants to get married, have children, like her siblings. But the only man she can imagine fathering her children and waking up to every day for the rest of her life is Jack McCall, and he walked out six months ago, without so much as a kiss goodbye. Now he’s back. And bringing with him more trouble–and temptation–than is good for Ashley. Yet her heart refuses to let her say no…

Jack is sick. Delirious with a mysterious illness doctors can’t guarantee won’t kill him, he returns to the one place–the one person–he must see again, before he dies. Only Ashley is the breath of fresh air Jack needs to get back on his feet. And in fighting form. Which is good, because the man who caused his illness, plans to finish the job once and for all. Only this time Jack has more than one last kiss from Ashley O’Ballivan worth living for–he has all of her, including her heart–provided he survives, and then finds the courage to find his way home to her in Stone Creek, this time for good…

5 STARS.
