Yolanda Sanchez and Adam Snapp had been friends since they were young. Frienemies may be a better descriptions. Yolanda had never been allowed to be anything but business and straight A’s and Adam seemed to be more of a free spirit. They’d gone their separate ways until her mom died and left an inheritance that demanded she “follow a dream’ and Adam’s Dad became ill and asked him to come back home. Adam is working for Yolanda helping restore the house she is putting her dream bookstore. It’s strictly business…until they discover a mysterious book about Scorpion Ridge history. One that reveals not just secrets of their families’ pasts, but how deeply intertwined their futures really are.
I quite liked both of these characters. They were real and conflicted and didn’t know each other as well as they thought they did. I loved Rosi & Loretta, the grandmothers of our main characters. They both lived a full lovely life and adored their grandchildren. There are a few twists in the book. I had the “big mystery’ figured out fairly early, yet I was intrigued. For me this book is worth reading. I personally may have liked it about 50 pages shorter. Thus, 4 not 5 stars.
