When Finding Lara released, I wrote a post about Living in a Small Town with an Angry neighbor. We’re still talking about that small town and said angry neighbor, but things have changed.
Elena is from Hickory Hills, the angry neighboring town. Situated in the hills of Kentucky, this little town is only 60 people strong and their numbers are dwindling. This brings much angst to its president, Craig Howard. But, Craig handles things with anger and isn’t willing to see anyone else’s point of view. Certainly not the women of Hickory Hills.
Aidyn is a GHOST Operative. He and his teammates have moved to Glen Hollow, the little town at the base of the mountain, to broker peace. So far, it’s been rocky. And, then Aidyn spotted Elena. Ah, now there’s a new wrinkle in the cloth and this is a big one.
As Aidyn and Elena fight their feelings for each other, well, not really fight, but they are uncomfortable letting anyone know they have feelings for each other. It’ll only bring negative things to Elena while she lives up there. That’s the last thing Aidyn wants for her. But there’s more at play here than forbidden love. So much more.
I enjoyed writing this story so darned much. It’s still hanging with me all these weeks later. Elena is sweet, kind and nurturing and smart. But, she’s tired of life on the mountain and she’s afraid of all the changes.
Aidyn is strong, determined and protective and he can’t stop thinking about Elena. Their cultures are opposites, their lives are so different and her people hate him. How can this possibly work? I hope you’ll read to find out.
As always, I’ve had an entire team of people helping me behind the scenes and I’d like to thank them.
