A couple in secret. Two warring families. This little town isn’t big enough for the both of them.
Slinging whiskey is all Avery Wells knows how to do, and soon she won’t even have that. If she can’t change her uncle’s mind, her dreams of owning the family watering hole will soon go up in smoke.
Being an outcast is nothing new for Graham Foster, but when it comes to Avery, being on the outs was never apart of the plan. Despite their past, Graham never lost hope that they could find their way back to each other. Convincing Avery of that fact might be a harder sell.
But fighting their pull is the least of Avery’s problems because someone doesn’t want her to win the family bar, and murder isn’t off the table.
Be careful where you seek your refuge...
Avery and Graham were once head over heels in love. Then life tore them apart or rather Avery’s family. They left town separately but now they are both back. And like a moth to a flame there is no keeping them apart. Or is there? Will Avery let her family stand in the way of her happiness? Will Graham let the family shame he carry’s cross over to Avery? Only one way to find out.
So, I have mixed feelings on Reaching Refuge. Don’t get me wrong it was a good solid book, but to me it was more mystery suspense then romantic mystery suspense. For me it was like Avery and Graham blindly jumped in without asking questions and finding out who the other was after over a decade apart. With that said as a mystery suspense it was a good book, but the romance of it felt almost as a after thought which is why it’s getting a 4 star instead of a 5.
