Caitlyn Marsh stopped believing in happily-ever-after when high-school sweetheart, Gideon Garza, left for Iraq. Now she raises her small son while her matchmaking gardening club members drive her crazy. Then Caitlyn’s world turns upside-down when Gideon swaggers back to Twilight.
Gideon left town in the middle of the night with threats ringing in his ears. A lot of things have changes since then. This bad boy-turned-Green Beret bears scars from the war, the timid girl he loved is an idependent mother, and the father who refused to recognize his son in life has, in death, left him a vast cattle ranch.
He still aches for Caitlyn, and now there’s a dark-haired boy who looks exactly like Gideon did at that age. Could the child be his? And can this war-weary soldier overcome the scars of the past to claim the family he so richly deserves?
First off let me say that I love the Twilight Series and this book does not disappoint. Each one of the books is unique in it’s own way yet they complement each other so well. You get to know each one of the towns people throughout the books so it is like visiting a family when you pick up the next one.
I also love that Lori introduces us to Gideon and does not hold back but lets us experience his turmoil at war and how he overcomes the terror that he feels his life was. She gives us a glimpse into someone suffering PTSD and finding his way out of the nightmares. Also giving us a welcoming backdrop and a place to honor all of the military heros. All through her normal style with community, humor and of course romance. Romance is still a big part of this book and is really what creates the change in everyone, yes love does conquer everything.
As for Caitlyn, she has her own issues to overcome. Looses her mother at a young age, is estranged from her father who not only is distant but is the one who took Gideon away from her. She goes on with her life to only than loose her husband and become a single mom. Caitlyn is afraid of just about everything, especially loosing someone else. So of course the one person she thought was gone forever and the hardest to get over somehow returns from the dead. Caitlyn and Gideon learn they still have feelings for each other but can they overcome their past?
