Micah Lennox left Whisper Ridge after promising the man he loved that he would never return. But the only way he knows to keep his pregnant sister and nephew safe is to go home. Spending winter in Wyoming opens too many old wounds, but he’s on the run from justice which can’t be far behind, and this is his last chance at redemption.
After a hostage situation leaves Doctor Daniel Sheridan struggling with PTSD, he returns to Whisper Ridge. Joining his dad in family practice is a balm to soothe his exhausted soul, and somehow, he finds a peace he can live with. That is until he meets Micah in a frozen graveyard, and the years of anger and feelings of betrayal boiling inside him, erupt.
Two broken men fight and scratch for their lives and that of their families, and somehow, in the middle of it all, they find each other.
Is it possible that love can be rekindled and become a forever to believe in?
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating by chapter between Daniel & Micah’s perspectives.
This is the first book in RJ Scott’s Whisper Ridge, Wyoming series. These are best enjoyed in order.
This one was really emotional. It focused heavily on a car accident that killed/injured several teens 10 years earlier. And how that rippled through the community, but specifically the families of the three in the car.
I loved how Scott brought several different intriguing stories together to culminate in the reunion of Daniel & Micah. In some respects this wasn’t an easy read (I definitely cried a few times), but it was such a beautiful story of forgiveness and healing.
Micah’s strength and his love for his sister and nephew were especially poignant. Daniel has been through so much, all of which he had no control over but took as his responsibility. Watching them truly come to terms with everything and back together as a couple was lovely.
