Summary

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 - at least until he moves to Reno to open a branch of the Amos brothers' auto body shop. And no matter how hard she's tried, Presley hasn't been able to get over him. Seeing him again makes the longing so much worse. But she hopes she can get through the next few months because she can't fall back into his arms... or his bed. She's come too far to backslide now. And there's a secret she's been guarding - a secret she'll do anything to protect.

Not my favorite

The performance by Carly Robins was as always phenomenal. The story line was ok - the subplot was out there, and I didn't like it. I also didn't like that the heroine is depicted with dark skin in more than one part in the story, and Aaron, when seeing a picture of Wyatt, says, "well the father is definitely white" leads me to believe that Presley is a black woman, or at least partly (I did not read the book about Cheyenne and Presley's upbringing - it's on hold at the library), but the cover is clearly a white woman. Why not use a black woman on the cover? I think we need more diversity on covers, especially if the story inside depicts it. Anyway - that's not why I'm giving the book four stars overall. I did not like the subplot with Cheyenne and I didn't like that Aaron felt a little bit manipulative to me. But I still love me a Brenda Novak novel.

No respect for the main characters

Narrator wasn’t bad, though she mispronounced the sister’s nickname (character in previous book).

I just can’t like the two conniving sisters.... though I really liked these characters in the first books.

Novak is good at creating characters that have flaws... but this time it was just too much.

Horrible subplot ruins story. I won't read another

I hated what Novak did here. why would two sisters share one man to father their children? Cheyenne better have a miscarriage or there is no moving past this travesty. it's gross and incestuous.

ummm

the whole Cheyenne thing is one of the worst situations I've ever read in a book. their decision was not justifiable no matter how they tried to flip it

SPOILER ALERT BELOW

Cheyenne who was lied to practically her entire life now wants to lie to her husband about something so serious and irreversible? how the hell did Aaron ever think this was ok.

the lie will hurt Dylan more than the joy of having a kid. knowing the truth about his inability to make kids would have really hurt yeah but him and Cheyenne could have worked through it and possibly adopted. And how could Aaron live with himself knowing this was his child.

I loved Pressley and Aaron's relationship but everything else was a no. Even the fact she robbed Aaron of two years from his son's life without giving him the choice pisses me off and he forgave her too quickly.

Also, Pressley apprehension was drawn out.

Great Read

Come Home to Me (Whiskey Creek, #6) was another great read by Brenda Novak. Presley has spent the last two years away from Whiskey Creek with her two year old son. She left behind her past and difficult childhood. She’s now back in the small town and is sober while raising her son. She’s close to her sister and Aaron, who doesn’t know he has a son. He is getting ready to move to Reno to open a branch of his auto body shop he runs with his brothers. Presley is trying to get over Aaron but is having a hard time. I really enjoyed reading Presley and Aaron’s story and can’t wait to read more by Brenda Novak.

Worst in the series so far.

Spoiler:
Really!!?? Cheyenne, concocting that whole baby thing made me grimace and not like her anymore. Why the Hell would she deceive her husband Dylan, the man she supposedly loves so much? Nice, honest relationship they have going, huh? That's more like a soap opera story line. Several times I wanted to stop reading but I read on, hoping they would redeem themselves. I liked Cheyenne in her book with Dylan but now I don't care about her, Presley, or Aaron after that whole scenario. Had this been the 1st book in the Whiskey Creek series I would have stopped there and not read anymore. Oh, and pronunciation of the town of Placerville rhymes with passer-ville, not pacer-ville.

Pass on this one, move on to the next book.

The story of Cheyenne and Dylan did not ring true, no way would she ask Aaron to father her child. Presley is so wounded and she is never given a backbone. Just didn't care about what happened next. Pass...:(

I felt like there were unanswered questions.

I kept waiting for the book to definitely answer if she was pregnant. It specifically said she took the test too early, but it never touched on it again.
