Book 3 in Dorothy Love's Hickory Ridge Romance series.
Ethan and Sophie long to share a future together. But the secrets they're not sharing could tear them apart.
Sophie Caldwell has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, after years away. Despite the heartaches of her childhood, Sophie is determined to make a home, and a name, for herself in the growing town. A gifted writer, she plans to resurrect the local newspaper that so enchanted her as a girl.
Ethan Heyward's idyllic childhood was shattered by a tragedy he has spent years trying to forget. An accomplished businessman and architect, he has built a majestic resort in the mountains above Hickory Ridge, drawing wealthy tourists from all over the country.
When Sophie interviews Ethan for the paper, he is impressed with her intelligence and astounded by her beauty. She's equally intrigued but fears he will reject her if he learns about her shadowed past. Just as she summons the courage to tell him, Ethan's own past unexpectedly and violently catches up with him, threatening not only his life but their budding romance.

When Sadie Caldwell was a child she left Hickory Hollow with her new adoptive parents Ada and Wyatt Caldwell to start her new life in Texas. Now many years later she has returned to Hickory Ridge, Tennessee where she is still haunted by her unhappy childhood. Sadie is the new owner of the local newspaper Hickory Ridge Gazette. It will be a challenge with the old equipment but she is ready for that challenge.
She has enjoyed reuniting with several of her old friends and hopes all the old prejudices from some of the other towns people was left buried in the past.
She finally opens for business and is very interested in interviewing the manager of the new luxurious resort Blue Smoke, Ethan Heyward . It will make a great article for the Gazette.
Ethan was surprised to find out that S. R. Caldwell was not a man but an attractive woman and the new owner of the Gazette. After the interview he had every intention of spending more time with Sadie Caldwell. He noticed she was a little standoffish with him but wasn't sure why.
Sadie got the impression that Ethan was prejudice against some of his workers. He also acted like he was suffering from some dark secret. But it was apparent he was very intelligent and talented. The resort was a great accomplishment and would be an asset to Hickory Ridge and it's businesses.
In this final book of this series the author writes the conclusion of Hickory Ridge with two generations. The author focused on the trials and tribulations of women in the workplace. Even though there will always be people that are prejudiced against someone or something the author brings them into the new generation growing with the times. Book three was the perfect gift!
