Elisabeth “Betsey” Atwater had plans as big as the Montana Sky. Marry the boy she’s loved since the day they met and become a famous singer. Getting Aaron Hilam to notice her took years of patience and when he did, life was so perfect she forgot all about singing. But dreams of spending her life with him were shattered when he left town and said he was never coming back. Her heart was broken beyond repair until she realized Aaron had left behind a piece of himself she could hold on to forever.
Aaron Hilam’s growing feelings for his best friend’s little sister spooked him more than anything ever had. He’d spent the past twelve years trying to avoid her but now that she was full grown and the prettiest girl in all of Willow Creek, he had a hard time ignoring her, especially when those kisses she gave him led to things her brother would probably kill him for if he knew. When an argument at home has him mad at the world, he leaves town vowing to never come back but like most things in his life, trouble is never far behind him. When he returns home he has a lot of broken hearts to mend, one in particular.
When Betsey spots Aaron riding into town, she’s heartsick when she sees he’s not alone. But her despair is short-lived when she meets a man who offers her a way past the heartache and a path straight to the other big dream she’s always yearned for. All she has to do is give up everything she’s ever held dear, and that includes Aaron Hilam.

What a beautiful story written by Lily Graison. This is a western romance that will leave you wanting to know more about the rest of the town's people in Willow Creek. The descriptions in the book vividly describe a young woman surviving for her child. And of course there is a beautiful love story in the making. Thank you again Lily for a wonderfully written book.
It almost pains me to say this, but Aaron may be my favorite in Willow Creek! I have been wanting a story like this and Lily delivered it. I couldn't put it down from page one with her brother doing what any brother would do. There is so much to their story that it pulls at your heart and waiting for something to keep them apart. I loved seeing their relationship build again and so many scenes were heart touching. I knew there was going to be trouble with the guy offering what she wanted but never saw that kind of trouble coming. I was holding my breath after that afraid that something else would happen. There is so much in the book that is amazing and I don't want to giveaway. I loved the hint for the next book and can't wait for it. This is one written so well that you can picture everything like a movie. Betsey is a strong woman to do things on her own and work where she works. She wasn't so stubborn that she wouldn't listen even if it took a bit to get her to listen. I loved that she didn't hide from the town and felt for her with what she had to agree to when protecting those she loved. Aaron knew he made mistakes and wanted to make things right, but didn't know everything. He had my heart from the start because he owned up to things and clearly loved her. I felt for him everytime something happened and he made my heart ache in many scenes. Copy provided for an honest and voluntary review
