One day, Callie Vanetta receives devastating news . . .She needs a liver transplant. But her doctors warn that, in her case, the chances of finding a compatible donor aren’t good. Determined to spend whatever time she has left on her own terms, she keeps the diagnosis to herself and moves out to her late grandparents’ farm. She’s always wanted to live there. But the farm hasn’t been worked in years and she begins to fear it’s too much, she’ll have to return to town.
My Review:One night, a stranger comes knocking at her door…He’s an attractive and mysterious drifter by the name of Levi McCloud who offers to trade work for a few nights’ shelter. Callie figures she doesn’t have anything to lose. He needs a place to stay until he can fix his motorcycle; she needs an extra pair of hands. The arrangement seems ideal until what was supposed to be temporary starts to look more and more permanent. Then she realizes she does have something to lose — her heart. And, although he doesn’t yet know it, Levi stands to lose even more.
First of all, I have been reading Brenda Novak novels for a while now, so I am very happy to be a part of her Book Tour!
If you've read any of her previous novels, you will be familiar with Callie, she has never been a main part of the story, but always a supporting character, I didn't know how it would be having her as a main character as I never felt like I got much about her, but I really am glad I got to delve into her world. And boy what a heartbreaking one it is.
I loved the journey of emotions we went on with Callie, she has had a crap hand dealt to her and watching her trying to navigate through it was heartbreaking. I often times just wished she would have shared the burden with anyone. I wanted to reach through the book and give her a big hug.
Now for Levi, from the first meeting between him and Callie, you just know its going to be a powerful relationship. It does not let you down. I really loved everything about their journey. Can't wait for more in the Whiskey Creek series.
