Description

Jacqueline Keys was ostracized from her small hometown of Pine Springs, Texas, when she was 17, sent away because she was gay. Her family was the largest employer in the county, owning Pine Springs Lumber, and her father was mayor of this small town. Her mother could not accept the fact that her only child was gay, could not tolerate the gossip about her family. So, with a hundred dollars in her pocket and a one-way bus ticket out of town, Jacqueline was told not to come back until she had come to her senses. And that included being prepared to marry the son of a business associate of the family.

Fifteen years later - long after she'd hitch-hiked to Los Angeles, long after she'd worked nights to put herself through college, and long after she'd written her first best seller, No Place for Family - Jacqueline is persuaded to go back to the tiny town of Pine Springs after her father's death.

The quick trip she'd envisioned for the funeral turns into weeks as she learns her father's business is suddenly hers to manage. And she is also again face-to-face with the woman who, as a teen, had been Jackie's first crush. She and Kay had been inseparable as kids and later as teens. They find themselves falling back into their old habits, and Jackie is soon fighting the same feelings she'd had when she was 17.

One of my favorites by Hill

I just absolutely love this book! When I saw it was coming out in audio and Abby Craden was narrating, I had no hesitation in purchasing as soon as it came out. I finished it in one day. Craden just brought the characters to life. All the moments I held my breath when reading it myself were just amplified having it narrated. I still wish it was a bit longer, and had more to the ending... an epilogue. I just didn't want it to end. I would read a sequel to this in a heartbeat. I just loved Jackie and Kay. I might just have to re-listen right now. I'm just not ready for the story to end. Seriously win win with Gerri Hill and Abby Craden.

Another fantastic story

Abby and Gerri do it again!! I love the love story that unfolded. My only wish is that there would have been an epilogue of more of their future story, or another chapter. Sometimes, family will surprise you and be more accepting than you think.

Amazing

This captured the East Texas I was raised in perfectly. I loved it. The narration is great too. I hate it when narratora try a fake southern accent, and I was well pleased this one dis not do that. Great slow burn of a re-united high school crush.

Good book.

Spoilers.

I thoroughly enjoyed this boom until about 2/3 through, it was entertaining but then something switched. The excruciatingly slow burn romance part started to drag on and on. I enjoy a slow burn but this one was a bit dragged out. The protagonists lady has this sister who became ridiculously annoying and tried to force a man upon her. It was like 30 minutes Gerri could have cut out or spared for the INSANELY RUSHED ENDING. I got whiplash, at one moment I’m inwardly groaning that the two women were still dancing around the issue having kids interrupting their first kiss and the next thing I realize the book is had 15 minutes left. The amount of time dedicated to the crucial plot points were so rushed and the flashbacks and work stuff (that part was actually interesting) were the bulk of the book. This is my first Gerri Hill book in a hot minute and I honestly enjoyed it more than most of that isnt obvious but I guess I wanted more dedicated to Kaye. She really wasn’t a big part of the book. Her coming out was the denouement the story yet it took 5 minutes of audio at the end. Grrrrr.

Abby craden was great as per usss

sequel.

This story is in dire need of part 2 and 3. My only complaint it was too short. Abby Craden is amazing! May we please have more of this story.
