Overview

Allie Bennett's heart has been broken. Fifteen years ago, she and her mother ran away from the only home she'd ever known, from her loving father and the painful reminders of her sister's unexplained death. But now, Allie has decided to stop running -- and start finding answers....

After her mother's death, while cleaning out her mother's things, Allie finds an anonymous letter raising new questions about her sister's fate. Determined to have the truth, Allie turns to the only place left to find answers: her hometown in the bluegrass region of Kentucky.

Memories haunt her there. It seems the whole town is keeping secrets from her, no one more than a sexy, charismatic man from her past. Stephen Whittaker swears he wants to help Allie solve the mystery himself.

Will he break her heart all over again? Or will he be the one who finally heals it?

Meet the Author

Born in the bluegrass region of Central Kentucky, Teresa Hill grew up thinking there would be nothing better in the world than being a writer, not so surprising given the public library in her town was in an old church building, complete with beautiful stained glass windows. Books seemed, if not holy, at least spiritual, comforting and a way to travel the world and enjoy adventure after adventure.

She adored the Boxcar Children and Island of the Blue Dolphin, loving the idea of living on her own at a young age. Little Women was glorious, although she never quite accepted the fact that Jo and Laurie didn't end up together. And The Outsiders by S. E. Hilton shocked her by being not only a great stories, but also being written by someone in her teens!
Prior to that, she'd been sure writers were old, gray and impossibly wise, living in castle-like splendor and seclusion, as befitted such extraordinary creatures.

Then she discovered romance! Actually, historical fiction with a nice dose of romance, in the adult fiction section of the old church turned library. Victoria Holt under her pseudonym Jean Plaidy, writing about the Kings of England and their wives, but with a decidedly romantic bent.

And that was it. She was hooked. She wanted to become a romance writer.

Now, she lives in the shadows of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, with a very understanding husband, two children, two dogs and two cats. She has written thirty books under her real name and previously under the pseudonym Sally Tyler Hayes.

    A warm and wonderful book not to be missed!

    Allie Bennett has some serious issues to deal with from her childhood. Now that her mother has passed away, she learns that her father also died and that means she has inherited the family home in Dublin, Kentucky. She has to go back to see if she can finally piece together the mystery of why her perfect family fell apart when she was nine. Walking back into her family home, Allie is literally struck by the memories of the year her older sister Megan ran away and then was killed in an automobile accident. Shortly after they buried Megan, Allie¿s mother took her away in the middle of the night. She never saw her father again. Now she is obsessed with discovering what really happened back then, even though the memories coming back to her and the stories she hears from the people who remember it best are disturbing. Stephen Whittaker has a vested interest in helping Allie come to terms with her memories and moving on as quickly as possible. That¿s his plan from the moment she arrives in town. Unfortunately, he didn¿t plan to be so drawn to her. He didn¿t plan to get as caught up in her quest as she was nor did he expect to fall in love with her. The chemistry between these characters is so real, you can feel the heat right through the pages. And just as real is the chilling tingle that runs up your spine as the fifteen-year-old mystery begins to unravel. Teresa has skillfully intertwined romance and suspense to create a wonderful story with just the right taste of the south. Her gift for creating memorable characters will leave Stephen and Allie on your mind long after you finish the last page.

    Exciting family drama

    In Dublin, Kentucky, nine years old Allie Bennett is stunned and frightened when her mother Janet wakes her up to make her leave with her in the middle of the night. Janet is leaving her husband, who pleads with her to stay. He especially don¿t want his wife to take his only living child away from him. Six months ago, the Bennetts older daughter Megan ran away and died in a Georgia car accident. Allie never saw her father again. <P>Fifteen years later, Janet recently died. Allie is going through her mother¿s papers when she learns her dad died two years ago and the letters she sent him were never mailed. Knowing her mother lied to her over the years and her father never came to see her although he had her address leaves Allie desperate for closure by learning what destroyed their happy home. Allie returns to Dublin where she meets her next door neighbor Stephen Whittaker who offers to help her learn the truth. As Allie begins to fall in love with Stephen, she wonders if he and his family were part of the problem that ripped her parents apart. <P> UNBREAK MY HEART is a poignant family drama that works on several levels. Allie is the key to the plot with her deep need for understanding if she is to go on with her life. The ¿mystery¿ has several twists and adds to the growing tension. Teresa Hill ties everything together in a gut-wrenching drama that will provide the best-selling author a new spot on the lists. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Depressing story

    I decided to read this book after reading the McRae series & this book was disappointing. So much sadness & lies I felt like I had to force myself to keep reading. I must say the last 100 pages of the book brings the story together (finally). If you like sad stories this is a must read!
