River Bend Series - Book 2

Tully Morgan hasn't been back to Marietta for more than a few brief visits since the night of the 1996 senior prom eighteen years ago, when the chance exposure of a long-held family secret sent her running to her uncle in California in shock. She stood up her date Ren Fletcher that night, and she hasn't seen him since.

Now she's here for an extended stay, to help take care of her seriously ill mother. It's an edgy reconciliation, the first time that Tully, Patty and Sugar Morgan have been together since that long ago prom night. Tully has had so much anger toward Sugar... can she ever forgive her?

And Sugar still has one more secret that needs to be dealt with, one that needs Ren Fletcher's help. Has he forgiven Tully for leaving him in the lurch on prom night? And is there any chance that he and Tully can rekindle what they might once have had, when he's still tied to someone else?

This book was so much more than I bargained for. I was expecting a much lighter read than the one that I got. This book had a great amount of depth to it. There was a lot of exploration about relationships of all kinds, forgiveness and how one chooses to live their life. I greatly enjoyed it. Each character grew throughout the novel.  It is told from several different perspectives which offered more insight which I liked. The most interesting character was Sugar, which surprised me. I still didn't like her, but I did like her acceptance of her decisions and who she is.  This author had one of the most interesting writing styles I've seen recently. They way she told the story was very different. I liked it.  I was a little disappointed by the ending. I wanted more of an epilogue to find out what happens, but the ending was still ok.

A sister who isn't really a sister, but her mother. The prom date she stood up 18 years ago. A brother no one knew about. Tully Morgan's life hasn't been easy and it's about to get even more complicated. Tully is coming home to help her mother (who everyone thinks is her sister) in her final stages of cancer. She wants to finally make amends with her and try to build some kind of relationship before her time is up. At the chocolate shop buying candy for her mother Sugar, she runs into Ren Fletcher, the boy she stood up for their date when she left home for California after finding out Sugar (the addict who came and left as she pleased) really wasn't her sister, but her mother. Ren has changed. He's no longer the nerdy boy he used to be. He's grown into an attractive man who is now a lawyer in the town of Marietta where they grew up. Lots of memories come back. Ren is in the process of divorcing his wife, the girl he hooked up with after prom. Can you really turn back the clock and make up for lost time? Sugar had done four good things in her life, she gotten clean, gone off the game, gave her son up for adoption and now found him. She was running out of time. Can she fit in one more good thing before it's too late? Can she do the sweetest thing yet? Although it's not necessary, you can read Late Last Night by Lilian Darcy to get some background information about some of the characters.
