(Southern Series Book 1)

Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.
I fell in love with him when I was seven. I scraped my knee, and he helped carry me inside.
Our love story was the talk of the town until a woman told everyone she was pregnant with his baby. The only rational solution was to high tail it out of town and never come back.
My best friend needed a place to hide, and you can’t get much more covert than my family farm, so I came back. For her. It was supposed to be temporary, and I wasn’t supposed to see him, but that’s what happens when you live in a small town where everyone knows each other.
Being the sheriff in a small town was never my dream. My father died and my older brother took off, so I had to be the one to look after my mother. I stayed. I fulfilled my duties as a son and I protected my hometown.
My life wasn’t perfect, but I was content. Until I locked eyes with a ghost from my past, Kallie. I thought it was my imagination, it couldn’t be. I loved her most of my life, but now I hated her.
The town gossip mill was going into overdrive. I kept my head down and my mind off of the woman who shattered my heart when she ran away. She didn’t give me a chance to explain, it didn’t matter to her then. I didn’t matter.
A second chance is never promised, but now that mine is right under my nose, I’m not sure I can take it.

I didn’t think this story would pull as much emotion from me as it did. I thought I knew what would come of this story. It’s not exactly a new and unique plot. I grabbed this book mainly because I’d never read the author before and she comes highly rec’d. I thought, what better way to get to know an author’s style and voice than with a story-line I’d read numerous times before. Right? Well, color me surprised and impressed because not only did she make this story fresh in my eyes, but she made me laugh and cry and swoon and really frikkin happy!
You guys, I’m in deep with this series already! I really enjoyed not only Kallie and Jacob, but everyone else as well! I’m invested in the secondary characters already and I want all their stories like yesterday! I’m invested in this small town and all its charm already. I’m just invested and I love it!
How is it possible that Natasha Madison always and I mean ALWAYS makes me cry??? After finishing this I’m not even sorry I did because if you don’t shed a tear or two you have a cold heart.
Now back to the story; Jacob and Kallie have a complicated history. It was hard to read everything she went through while she was away. After learning the truth and everytime they were together you couldn’t help but feel happy that they were finally where they should have been all along – together.
As this is the first book in the series I’m super excited to see what happens next in this small town and it’s people ?

About the Author:
When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
