Latest novel by Donna Ford is a welcome distraction. Dane Foster, a strong, compassionate woman travels to a very small town in East Tennessee, after losing her best friend in a horrible accident. Dane is seeking information about her family, particularly her mother and any other relatives she can find. The town of Jellico, however, doesn’t like to share their secrets with outsiders. She befriends Curtis, sweet, misguided brother to the lovely Emma Reynolds who owns and runs the local tavern. Dane rents a room from them while researching her roots.
Ford describes the Smoky Mountains, the mists, the area and people so well, I half expected to see the dirt under my feet. Really well written and enjoyable romance/thriller. Thanks to Bold Strokes Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
