From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Barbara Freethy, an emotional, heartwarming contemporary romance set in a California river town, featuring a returned Marine and the woman he never forgot.

Ex-Marine Gabe Ryder is fulfilling the last request of his best friend Rob, who was killed in a firefight during their final days of service. He promised to help Rob’s family—especially Rob’s twin sister, Alicia—with their struggling river rafting business. Gabe has a hidden past with Alicia, however; she’s the woman who taught him that love might exist, but he walked away from her.

Alicia has more than enough on her plate with her brother’s death, her father’s injury from a tragic rafting accident, the entire town turning against them, and a series of dangerous attacks on her business. She doesn’t need this rugged loner who broke her heart. But passion flares between them, and this time, they can’t walk away. Alicia can’t help wondering: did Rob really send Gabe to watch over her—or did he want her to show Gabe the way home?

Publishers Weekly Review

07 May 2012 – Bestseller Freethy (Don’t Say a Word) tugs hard at the heartstrings with this contemporary series launch set in smalltown Northern California. It hasn’t been an easy year for single mother Alicia Hayden: after a catastrophic accident involving her family’s venerable river rafting business, her twin brother, Rob, serving in the Marine Corps, is killed in action. Alicia is grieving Rob’s loss and dealing with the town’s accusations about the accident—which left her best friend’s fiancé dead—when Rob’s best friend, Gabe Ryder, a fellow Marine, arrives in River Rock. Gabe and Alicia had a short but passionate affair years earlier, and while Alicia is now dating a local schoolteacher whose son is best friends with her nine-year-old, she can’t deny that she’s still strongly drawn to Gabe. As an escalating series of incidents threatens to bankrupt the rafting company, Alicia and Gabe begin to realize the truth about their relationship and its future. Freethy’s skillful plotting and gift for creating sympathetic characters will ensure that few dry eyes will be left at the end of the story.
