From Goodreads: Seventeen years after being convicted of murder, Cade Youngblood returns to his hometown to bury his beloved great uncle. Still the pariah of Cumberland Cove, Tennessee, he faces resentment, fear, and pure hatred from some who believe he is guilty. Cade has more reason than ever to clear his name, but somebody is willing to kill to protect a shocking secret.
When his ex-fiancée, Scottie Youngblood, now a Cumberland Cove police officer, responds to vandalism to Cade’s property, they begin to rekindle their old relationship and attempt to unravel the tangled lies from the past. Scottie joins forces with Cade to solve the mystery of the decades’ old murder. In the process they discover the deception that tore them apart when they were young.
Only one person offers a clue to the past, but somebody is willing to kill to keep that truth buried. And more than one citizen of Cumberland Cove would like to see Cade gone–forever.
Those of you that follow my reviews might know that I don’t read many romantic suspenses. And yes, when I do they’re ones that I fell in love with. This one is no exception. This book helped me get through boring days at work. 🙂 I loved the backstory and the way that the two main characters knew each other before. I’m always a sucker for forbidden or former love stories. This novel brought all of that to me. I couldn’t wait to get back to it every time I had to put it down. I thought that Cade was a fantastic hero who was someone I could understand Scottie loving. I felt so bad for him and thought he was a very strong person to be able to get through all of the things that he did. I understood how Scottie felt about everything and I could relate to a lot of her feelings about things. I think that this is a great romantic suspense. Even for people who aren’t necessarily the biggest fan of the genre! If you’re looking for something that will keep you turning the pages then this is for you. You’ll sink into a great story and get lost for a while. What more could a reader ask for? 🙂
