This time it's the brutal leader of a global drug-smuggling empire. The FBI doesn't know what their target looks like, where he is, or how to find him, but Nick Fox has a few tricks up his sleeve to roust this particular Knipschildt chocolate-loving drug lord.

Almost all her friends are married now, and that's what Eve wants, too. Love. A husband and kids of her own. But the B and B she manages-and even Whiskey Creek, the small Gold Country town where she was born and raised-suddenly seem - confining. Eve is worried that her future will simply be a reflection of her past. There's no one in the area she could even imagine as a husband - until a handsome stranger comes to town.

By the time Presley Christensen returns to Whiskey Creek with her little boy after two years away, she has completely changed her life. She's made peace with her past and overcome the negative behavior that resulted from her difficult childhood. Now she's back in the small town that was the closest thing to "home" she ever knew - the town where she can be with the sister who is her only family. There's just one catch: Aaron Amos still lives in Whiskey Creek.

What would have made Come Home to Me better?

It would have been nice to pick other characters of the book instead of Presley and Aaron.

What could Brenda Novak have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Kyle's story or even Ralley's

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

the Narration was good.

What character would you cut from Come Home to Me?

Presley and Aaron

Any additional comments?

In the other books I felt I was well define what happen with Presley and Aaron; they didn’t need a book of their own.
In addition why was Cayenne character changed? When Cayenne was first introduced she wasn’t the kind of person that would lie to her husband and deceive him with a ghost pregnancy. The Cayenne and Dillon character deserve to keep their integrity.
I would have like to know what happen with Kyle, Rally and Eve. Did they find someone to love?
All the other books in this series had flow this one does not it doesn’t even seem like it was written by Brenda Novak. It not worth reading or buying.
