Lilac Wedding for Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Janet has done it again, Lilac Wedding in Dry Creek is one of those books you cannot put down and before you know it you have read the whole thing.
Jake Stone and Cat Barker met one another when they were living at the same home run by the state. They became close friends while there and when Cat was 18 even though Jake had wanted to marry her she ran away, thinking he did not truly love her and only wanted to make life better for her.
years later Jake and she meet again in Las Vegas and this time there is a little girl that calls her mama. Can they find their way back to the friendship they had or more?
unbeknownest to Jake Cat has health issues that she doesnt want to let him know about right away. He thinks she is tired from trip or maybe had some flu and lingering effects from that. His feelings explode within him of wanting to help this woman that had been such a good friend to him.
He invites her to go back to Dry Creek with him for his brothers wedding and they do indeed become closer.
Jake had an abusive father growing up and home to him was not a happy place that most would call home. His father was murdered and his mother went to prison for 10 yrs before it became known that she was not guilty. Jake had issues himself to put to rest..
Janet brings these two folks to a place where Happiness reigns, I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did....
