My Rating: 3 ★★★☆☆
Sam Farley grew up hearing stories about his late grandmother’s house in Arcadia, Georgia, but for all his travels, the small town is one place he’s never been. So when he shows up, on foot, in a ferocious storm, he quickly has the locals buzzing: Who is this dark-eyed vagabond, and what does he want with Millie’s old, boarded-up house? Sam never intends to stay long—just long enough to see the house before it’s auctioned off. Then he meets the gorgeous city clerk, Andrea Fleming . . . and gives her a kiss. Now Sam’s torn between his desire for this intoxicating woman and the terrifying prospect of staying in one place.
Andrea is undeniably drawn to the brooding journeyman carpenter with his stories of faraway places. But she belongs in Arcadia and is certain that she will be nothing more to Sam than a fling, a way station on the road to all the places he hasn’t yet seen. But despite her deep misgivings—and the warnings of everyone around her—Andrea finds herself falling for the wickedly handsome wanderer . . . come what may.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Taking Shots, Along Came Trouble, and Hell on Wheels.
I enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting. I would recommend it to those who like romance with just a bit of angst/mystery.
Andrea has taken over her father’s job as sheriff after he broke his leg. She has no training or experience and no one expects her to need it seeing as Arcadia is such a small town. So when Andrea gets the call about a break in she’s a little nervous, but determined to make her dad proud. Needless to say the drifter in the abandoned home gets the best of her. That’s how she meets Sam. Andrea was hurt by a man in the past and has chosen to stay and hide in her small town where no other outsider can hurt her. She doesn’t realize that’s what she’s doing and watching her come to that knowledge as she slowly falls in love and learns to trust Sam was touching.
Sam is a drifter who has finally decided to see where his mother grew up and was ejected from by her father. Sam hates small towns for good reasons. When he finds out the guy he’s tackled is really a female and sheriff on top of that he’s a bit surprised. The sexual attraction is immediate and intense. Sam has his own issues to deal with and he does with the help of Andrea and some of the other great characters from Arcadia. Following along with Sam as he tries to figure out if he can finally have a home was heartfelt and well written.
