Book Blurb

Mitchell Walker never wanted anything other than the simple life of a farmer—until he met Elliot Foster, and then his dreams changed. Elliot seemed to want the same thing until the day he disappeared without a word. Two years later, Elliot is back and Mitch has to decide if he’s willing to put his heart on the line again for a man that is afraid to commit.

Elliot Foster found heaven in the arms of a farmer. Family obligations tore him away and put him in hell. When the devil himself seems to have it out for Elliot, he does the only thing he can to protect himself and his family—he runs into the arms of the one man that means more to him than his own happiness.

But the devil has a long reach. When Elliot’s stepfather comes for him, will the men of Cade Creek be able to stop a man who believes he’s above the law or will Elliot pay the ultimate price for loving the Farmer in the Dell?

 

Book Review

The second book of this series, set in the exceptional little town of Cade Creek, tells the story of Farmer Mitch and Elliot, the man he falls in love with. Unfortunately Elliot has some major issues and chooses to run away – all meant to protect Mitch from his abusive stepfather. Of course this is not a long-term solution, and just like in the first book, as sweet as the main characters are, they have to learn to stand up for themselves before things get better. Mitch and Elliot have the support of practically the entire town, and it still takes some major effort to fight the villain.

Elliot has a problem. His abusive stepfather has been threatening him for years, but once his mother dies, Elliot needs to take care of his three younger siblings as well as himself. He is such a caring guy, and he is determined to protect his sister and brothers, but the odds are overwhelming. The only place he can think to run to is Cade Creek and Mitch. Not planning to stay, just rest, he is surprised and shocked when Mitch offers to help him get rid of the stepfather from hell. Elliot has to take a leap of faith, and it very nearly costs him his life. I was so mad about what happened I could have strangled the idiots “in charge” of their brilliant plan. Elliot was way more forgiving than I would have been!

Mitch is a farmer all the way. He is happy to take over the family farm when his parents retire to Florida, and the only thing missing is Elliot, the man he fell for two years earlier. Nobody is happier than Mitchell when Elliot reappears, and he will move heaven and earth to ensure Elliot stays around this time. Never mind the abusive, powerful stepfather – Mitch knows a few people and is determined to protect Elliot. Just like his other friends, however, he is overly confident and it almost costs him dearly. I hope Mitch learns from this mistake!

If you like sweet romances with an edge of danger, if abused characters learning to fight for their rights are your thing, and if you’re looking for a read that is as sweet and hot as it is frustrating until the characters learn their lessons, then you will probably like this novella.
