Goodreads:  When a mysterious man turns up at Grace’s family-run inn, it’s instant attraction. But she’s already got a lot on her plate: running the Bluebell Inn, getting Blue Ridge Outfitters off the ground, and coping with a childhood event she’d thought was long past.

A gunshot wound has resurrected the past for secret service agent Wyatt Jennings, and a mandatory leave of absence lands him in Bluebell, North Carolina. There he must try and come to grips with the crisis that altered his life forever.

Grace needs experience for her new outfitters business, so when Wyatt needs a mountain guide, she’s more than happy to step up to the plate. As their journey progresses, Grace soon has an elusive Wyatt opening up, and Wyatt is unwittingly drawn to Grace’s fresh outlook and sense of humor.

There’s no doubt the two have formed a special bond, but will Wyatt’s secrets bring Grace’s world crashing down? Or will those secrets end up healing them both?

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in a series where I recommend starting at the beginning and read each book in a row.  

Three siblings have finished the renovations of an inn in their hometown after their parents passed away quickly and tragically.  Now running the inn, they have had a timeline as to when they would all move on to the next phases of their lives and it is coming up soon.  

The youngest sibling, Grace, was still in school when they lost her parents, but now she is 21 and operating her own business out of the inn and is ready to be a full fledged adult out of the watching eye of her siblings.  

Wyatt has moved to the small town to return to the scene of a crime and to confront the past in hopes that he can move into his future and the next phase of his career.    

As in most romance books the ending is inevitable, but the journey is the story.  I always appreciate a romance that throws in a twist and although I may have known it a little far ahead, it still made me gasp and I wanted to keep reading to find out how the characters would respond to the revelations.  

I loved this trilogy and hope to see many more to come from Denise Hunter.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
