Description from Goodreads:
When Laura Gantt returns to Georgia to handle her late mother's estate, she hears a startling rumor---that her father staged his drowning years ago and has recently been spotted roaming the mountains.
With the help of her former high school sweetheart, Laura searches for the truth. But will what they find destroy their rekindled feelings?
I really enjoyed this book and the closer I cam to the end, the faster I wanted to read. It has the perfect combination of love and mystery. And I really didn't see parts of the ending coming before they happened. I like it when a book is able to surprise me a little.
The character of Laura is wonderful. I love that she can still have love and forgiveness for parents and for those that she discovered played a huge part in life. Some of those, she never knew where such a big part.
Laura and Sean were school friends and sweethearts. Sean was pretty much taken in by her father after his own abusive father went to jail. Sean thought that he and Laura would be together forever but her father drowning changed it all.
Now Laura's mother is also dead and she comes home to tie up the estate. Little does she know that there are rumors that her dad never drowned. In fact, people say that he disappeared out of choice. If true, it could change everything that Laura believed to be true.
I loved finding out if her father was truly alive. And if she and Sean could ever get back what they lost. And if her parents had major secrets that she didn't know about. And of course, what in the world was going on with Ardelle. I would totally recommend it.
I received this book from Blogging For Books in return for a honest review. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
