to Oak Valley
Granger's and the Ballinger's had been feuding for over a hundred
years, ever since the first Granger and the first Ballinger had
migrated to Oak Valley, nestled in the mountains of northern California,
after the Civil War. The Granger's were from the South and the Ballinger's
were from the North. Naturally they were at each other's throats
from the onset. And the feud hadn't let up in modern times either.
Shelly Granger had fallen in love with Sloan Ballinger. But Josh,
Shelly's brother, still upheld the feud between the Granger's and
the Ballinger's. There was no way he wanted his baby sister to marry
one of those despicable Ballinger's.
Granger had not been back to her home in Oak Valley for seventeen
long years. Not since the night she found her lover, Sloan Ballinger,
in the arms of another woman. The only thing that brought her back
now was the suicide death of her beloved brother, Josh.
was soon to discover that the brother she thought she knew and had
idolized existed only in her mind. After her return to Oak Valley
from New Orleans, she began to discover things about him that just
could not be true.
flames die hard. The sparks between Shelly and Sloan had been embers
for seventeen long years. One look at each other and the flames
of desire were once again blazing hot and bright. Could Shelly prove
the old saying that one can never go back wrong? Would fate be kinder
to her and Sloan this second go around?
Busbee has created one heck of a story in Return to Oak Valley.
It is mystery, intrigue and romance all tied up into one amazing
package. Busbee's magical words transported me to Oak Valley. I
felt as though I was right there in northern California helping
Shelly run the cattle ranch, feeling her joy and her pain right
along with her. Return to Oak Valley is a wonderful book
and one that I highly recommend.
