The past she can’t remember just won’t let her go …
Alexis Brown was thirteen when her parents were killed. The police labelled it a murder-suicide, but Alexis has grown up believing her loving father could never have hurt her mother. So when, seventeen years later, Alexis receives an anonymous note telling her the police were wrong and her parents were both murdered, she’s determined to return to Blue Ridge and find out the truth.
When Alexis arrives at the newly renovated cottage hoping to awaken her lost memories, she can’t help but notice how strong and handsome her childhood friend Ethan King has become. But she’s not here for love. As soon as the truth is uncovered she has to return to her life, and falling for him would only leave her with a broken heart.
For Ethan, getting to know the resilient woman that Alexis has blossomed into leaves his world upside down. But as they spend the days together and with their mutual love for horses, it doesn’t take long for Alexis and Ethan to discover their friendship is much more than they’d first thought … But will it all be threatened by a shocking secret from all those years ago?

The story started with a hive of activity, in a read that was incredible. Alexis and Ethan’s characters were wholesome from the start and grabbed this reader’s attention with their confrontations and interactions within the story. There were some surprise twists that kept me turning the pages, in what was an all-round, enjoyable read that I could read again in years to come.
