Overview

Welcome to Honey Ridge, Tennessee, where Southern hospitality and sweet peach tea beckon, and where long-buried secrets lead to some startling realizations…

Grayson Blake always has a purpose—and never a moment to lose. He's come home to Honey Ridge to convert a historic gristmill into a restaurant, but his plans crumble like Tennessee clay when the excavation of a skeleton unearths a Civil War mystery…and leads him back to a beautiful and familiar stranger.

Once a ballet dancer, now co-owner of the Peach Orchard Inn, Valery Carter harbors pain as deep as the secrets buried beneath the mill. A bright facade can't erase her regrets any more than a glass of bourbon can restore what she's lost. But spending time with Grayson offers Valery a chance to let go of her past and imagine a happier future. And with the discovery of hidden messages in aged sheet music, both their hearts begin to open. Bound by attraction, and compelled to resolve an old crime that links the inn and the mill, Grayson and Valery encounter a song of hurt, truth…and hope.

★ 06/01/2017
Mysteries dating back 150 years are finally sorted out in this conclusion to Goodnight's "Honey Ridge" trilogy (after The Rain Sparrow and The Memory House). Valery Carter drinks too much because of secrets she's kept since she was a teenager. She helps her sister, Julia, run the Peach Orchard Inn in Honey Ridge, TN, out of guilt as much as affection. Grayson Blake is back in town with his brother to renovate the old mill into another restaurant in their portfolio of upscale eateries. Gray first met Valery when they were both kids—she was the cool girl, he was the nerd—and he never forgot her. The discovery of bones during the mill's excavation brings up painful history surrounding the Portland family, the original owners of Peach Orchard Farm, and their legacy of slavery and brutality, presented in chapters set in 1875. With edge-of-your-seat suspense, Goodnight's deliciously intricate series draws to a close through the story of Valery and Grayson. Many truths are slowly revealed as love overtakes regret, then and now. VERDICT Fans of romance, women's fiction, and historical novels will be swept away.—Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal
