I was fortunate to receive this novel as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

Molly Hanover is the new kid – forced to relocate to a new town during the summer before her senior year of high school, she is alone in her new surroundings, and very lonely. She takes herself out of the house to the park to read, where a chance encounter with a few of the local football players leads to an invite to a party, where she meets Wade.

Wade, football star and hometown hero, is close to being kicked off the team due to his poor grades in class. Forced to see a tutor, he is delighted to discover his tutor is none other than Molly, and the two fall hard and fast for one another.

Meanwhile, Ann, Molly’s Mom, wants nothing but the best for her daughter. Widowed at a young age, she has struggled to provide for Molly. When her employer, Peter, an attorney, offers her a small home, at a super low rental, she jumps at the chance to provide Molly with a stable environment, a decision that proves to be costly.

Then one night, a few drinks, a windy road, and a secret waiting to be shared, become the recipe for a catastrophic accident will change everything for these two teens. But can they find their way back to one another?

This is a fabulous story! It grabbed me right from the beginning, sucked me in, and kept me awake far into the night! The characters are realistic, believable, the writing superb, and the memories provoked of my own high school days were many…a ‘must read’!! I look forward to more from this author!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
