A Texas Family

ISBN: 9780373718795

Almost a decade ago, Jena Brooks fled Willow Creek, Texas after the tragedy in which her father Lamar killed her lover Jared Corbett; she left behind her Mama and her sister Hilary, and her newborn. Soon after Jared’s murder, her dad had been found shot to death in an unsolved cold case. Now a legal assistant, Jena returns to Willow Creek to gain custody of her child.

She challenges Jared’s brother, single dad of two children Carson Corbett, by insisting his father, who recently suffered a debilitating stroke, kidnapped her, induced labor, and took her baby away in a life for revenge. She gives Constable Carson two days before her lawyers take action. Skeptical Carson, a marine at the time, always assumed she left town with her offspring due to the trauma and scandal caused when her father killed his brother. Although he disbelieves Jena, Carson finds proof in the basement that his father took his grandchild away. Teaming up, Carson and Jena investigate what happened to their blood relative.

Filled with a super twist, this is a fabulous extended Willow Creek, Texas Family drama (see A Texas Hero). Character driven by a strong ensemble cast, readers will appreciate this entertaining romance as love and trust conflict when the ugly truth surfaces.
