    Dorothy Garland has the gift of always capturing the romance inside her characters

    Living during prohibition was financially draining and emotionally overwhelming. Maddy Aldridge is trying to keep her family mercantile a float so she can provide for her bed-ridden father and younger sister. Maddy is supplementing that basic income with a less that legal one downstairs where she runs a speakeasy a huge illegal no-no during prohibition.

    Jack Rucker walked away from small town life but never forgot the time he shared with Maddy and the love that today beats strong. When he returns home on business, he cannot discuss the one person he wants to reconnect with is Maddy and he hopes she feels the same.

    Time can heal so much but the wound of Jack leaving is still healing for Maddy. However, a brush of his lips against hers and the touch of his hand in her hair remind them both of the promises they made when they were young. The problem is Maddy has questions about what Jack is doing back in town and he is so evasive she suspects the worst yet hopes for the best. Can they rekindle the flame of love without fully answering questions? As the problems, come to a definite conclusion all that matters is Maddy and Jack can still walk down the street holding hangs and sharing passionate glances.

    I love Dorothy Garlock, but this book was terrible. It feels as if she was racing to meet a deadline. The characters felt cookie cutter and poorly developed, and, while I know this sounds scandalous to say about a romance novel, the plot felt unbelievable. Disappointing because Ms. Garlock truly is a wonderful writer - I'll turn to some of my other favorites while I'm waiting for her next one.
