Where There's Smoke by Elizabeth Lee
There is something to be said for letting go. Ryland Roberts knows that better than anyone. He'd let go of his ambitions, of his family and—most of all—of her. He'd perfected the art of putting his past behind him and accepted the fact that the town he wanted to leave in his rearview was the place where he was going to live out his days. But sometimes the past doesn't just go away. Sometimes it comes back to haunt you.Buy the Book •
Piper Jameson convinced herself that she left for all the right reasons. She'd saved people by leaving—made sure that they weren't tainted by her rebellious ways. When her little sister asks her to come home and say goodbye to their ailing mother, she's forced to see that things aren't always as they seem. The people who she'd left behind might not have been saved at all.
In the amount of time it takes a bullet to travel from point A to point B, Piper and Ryland will have to put their feelings for each other aside and make a choice. Forced on the run with Piper's sister, they begin to understand that the future they thought was gone was never really lost.
This was my first introduction to Elizabeth Lee and let me tell you; you’re in for one hell of a ride with Where There’s Smoke, because this book is filled with some serious fire! From the moment I started to read I knew that this book was different from anything that I have read; and in the best way possible! It was filled with love, mystery, pain, and ultimately second chances. I loved everything about these characters but the things I loved about them the most was that they were relatable in the sense that the things that they went through were real and many people can relate to them, granted maybe not to their extreme but the love, loyalty, and devotion made this a book I couldn’t put down. What can I say I’m a sucker for a great love story, and I wasn’t disappointed! Ryland…. Ryland is the type of man that any woman would be stupid to walk away from. He is loving, loyal, and completely devoted to Piper. And he shows just how devoted to her and protecting her he is by paying the ultimate price. Not only is he devoted to Piper but he has taken it upon himself to watch out for her sister Hadley in her absence. (How cute is he?) And I have to say this I was not happy with the way that Piper repaid his devotion by leaving and never looking back. I know she had her reasons but come on…. Now that I have that off my chest I think that she does redeem herself, and I couldn’t wait to turn the page to see what unexpected plot twist was coming next. If you’re ready for a new spin on second chance love stories then look no further; Where There’s Smoke is just what you’re looking for.
