Thunder Creek by Jill Gregory

In a place called thunder creek, two wary hearts are about to get a second chance at love.

When Katy Templeton fled her small Wyoming town and its painful memories, she thought she’d said good-bye to Thunder Creek forever. But now the prodigal daughter has come home. Home to the relentless ghosts of the past. Home to Jackson Brent, the lean, hard cowboy with the lazy smile--and the last person on earth she ever wanted to lay eyes on again.

Time and tragedy had come between them, but Jackson never forgot his best friend’s kid sister. The coltish beauty blossomed into a stunning woman, burned by love yet unafraid to take on the whole town to get justice for her family. Katy blames him for her beloved brother’s death, but as she digs for answers about that fateful day fourteen years earlier, there is someone ready to kill to keep her from getting them--and Jackson might be the only one who can save her. He wants her safe--and in his arms, but Katy can’t rest until she discovers the truth. Fighting her red-hot attraction to Jackson, Katy risks everything--even the yearnings of her own heart--to unravel the truth about her brother’s death.

From the Paperback edition.

The story wanes. Starts out decent, gets quite good, then dwindles down to mediocre. Katy and Jackson aren't believable together; too many issues never get resolved. If you like this book, you'd probably like Nora Roberts' novels Angels Fall and Northern Lights.

I have always loved Jill Gregory's stories and I was very excited to read this new one. I was not disappointed. It has everything... romance, mystery, action and an extremely emtional story. The lead characters were wonderful, you could feel the love they felt for each other. The secondary characters were great as well. I will definitely read this one again.

Years ago, Katy Templeton left her family ranch near Thunder Creek, Wyoming feeling lost although time had passed since the death of her hero, her older brother Matt. She returns home after successfully owning a restaurant chain because her grandma has pneumonia and Katy does not want her father to cancel her parents¿ trip to Paris.

Though fourteen years have passed since Matt fell from a ladder Katy still cannot look at his best friend Jackson Brant, who she felt inadvertently caused the death. He tells her he understands and promises to avoid her. She no longer blames him, but he reminds her too much of Matt¿s death.

Katy enters Matt¿s room and notices a drawing he made of a girl, who looks dead, which would have been an out of character sketch for her upbeat brother. She also sees a note to tell dad and Sheriff Harvey. Katy is confused by both items and wonders what Matt meant by them. Unable to resist she begins to investigate. As the danger mounts, she and Jackson fall in love, but will these feelings prove strong enough to overcome the ghost of Matt, that is if they survive someone who wants her to cease her inquiries?

Readers will enjoy this angst-laden romantic suspense though they will question the villain¿s identity and wonder why the heroine is with solving the ¿mystery¿ of the drawing. The relationship between Katy and Jackson is tremendously written as the audience can feel the negative vibes slowly change into love in a real depiction that the audience will appreciate.
