Overview

Loretta Russell is a control-freak, MIT-educated internet security expert who reluctantly returns from Silicon Valley to her tiny home town in the mountains of North Carolina to take care of her elderly mother. Jackson Shepherd is an emergency room physician, who also recently returned to his Southern roots after living in the Midwest for several years. They are both struggling to fit in, and being daily reminded of why they left the South in the first place.

When Jackson visits Loretta's mother's bed and breakfast for a weekend break from his hospital routine, he and Loretta discover they are kindred souls. Very soon, they race down the path toward happily-ever-after. Unfortunately, that path is blocked by a vicious attacker, who's out to destroy any hope they have for a life together.

In the spirit of the South rising again, Jackson and Loretta rebuild their lives and find joy in one another and in the mountain wilderness they love. Everything would be perfect, but for the haunting specter of Loretta's worst fear.

Meredith Morgan is a pseudonym, my professional and online identity. I write novels for and about strong women and self-publish them as eBooks on Smashwords.I was raised in the Midwest but have roots in the Deep South. I have lived in Florida for the past fifteen years. I tend to alternate the settings for my stories between all three places. From that experience, I've discovered that I love Southern women, Midwestern men and I'm fascinated (in a weird and scary kind of way) by the people I've encountered in Florida, most of whom are from other places.Besides writing, my passions are walking the beach, reading and cooking.

    Almost 700 pages

    This almost 700 page book was not for me. It had too much pathos in it. I agree with the other reviewer about the editing, it was pretty good. This book did not have as much cursing in it as the others, I have read by this author did. There is some undetailed sex, rape and other violence. I absolutely hated the ending. I do not like books which disturb me, I like at least a bit of happiness. For ages 18 and up.

    Almost but fails to deliver

    It doesn't take much to figure the author was raised in povery and hated her mother for it. It's to bad she lets her reality bleed over into her books the Good Ship Lolly Pop theme and the constant issues with Mom and family keep interfering with what could be great books. Still seems like a twelve y/o is writing it.

    Great Book

    I loved this book. There were a few typo's but over all it was a well written book that really makes you stop and think about what it feels like to be different from the main stream population. The author made you feel like you were acquainted with the characters in the small town. Coming from a very small town I could relate with the idea that if you are not like everyone else you were wrong. Didn't see the end coming and for me any book that I hate to see end has been a great read. This was one of those books.

    Hmm

    I actually enjoyed the book, until the last 40+ pages. Then it felt rushed ( I don't mind long wordy novels), and the ending really pissed me off. Especially after the unrealistic way they kept making money...to just end it like that? It felt as if the author finallly just got tired of her characters, and couldn't handle a happily ever after... Kind of a let down, after she had convinced me to like them.

    Flipping Fantastic

    The author pulls you in so deep that you think you know the characters as friends and family. I originally picked another one of her books as a quick in between reed. They are a quick read but only because you don't want to put it down.
    She's fantastic, captivating, real life like. I would love to see several of her books expand into a series..that's the disappointing part. You know there should be something else that is happening, and my imagination can carry it alittle ways.
    Meredith write MORE books. Expand them some. Still watching for the next Fire Investigator book.

    Great book.

    Loved this book even though it was hard to read due to the subject matter. I have read several works by this author and plan to read the rest due to two reasons. One the ones I have read were great books and two they were free. This book is also only for a mature audience. SQ
