My next book THE WAY BACK HOME, which will be released on June 26, 2012, received a Starred Pick of The Week from Publishers Weekly!
Here's the review:
Bestseller Freethy tugs hard at the heartstrings with this contemporary set in small town Northern California. It hasn't been an easy year for single mother Alicia Hayder. After a catastrophic accident involving her family's venerable river rafting business, her twin brother, Rob, serving in the Marine Corps, is killed in action. Alicia is grieving Rob's loss and dealing with the town's accusations about the accident — which left her best friend's fiance dead. Then Rob's best friend, Gabe Ryder, a fellow Marine arrives in River Rock. Gabe and Alicia had a short but passionate affair earlier, and while Alicia is now dating a local schoolteacher whose son is best friends with her nine-year-old, she can't deny that she's still strongly drawn to Gabe. As an escalating series of incidents threatens to bankrupt the rafting company, Alicia and Gabe begin to realize the truth about their relationship and its future.
Freethy's skillful plotting and gift for creating sympathetic characters will ensure that few dry eyes will be left at the end of the story.
I hope you'll check it out! THE WAY BACK HOME is a spin-off from my Angel's Bay series and features a character who appeared in GARDEN OF SECRETS, but the book is set in the new town of River Rock with a new cast of characters.
You can preorder it now at B&N, Amazon and Apple!
