After her father and stepmother's accidental death, Kelli Huddleston sorts through their belongings and learns a shocking secret.
Years before, her father faked his death during a boat wreck at sea--and faked Kelli's as well. He'd run from a wife, a son, and a daughter back in Tennessee, meaning Kelli has a family she's never known.
She's already cashed the payout on her dad's life insurance check and looks at it as her ticket to a new life. The lure and puzzle of digging into this hidden past is too much to resist, and she soon finds herself in Tennessee.
When the trip threatens to open doors to the past better left shut, and her plans for the future are threatened, Kelli must make an agonizing choice that will change her life forever.
This book was good, although after such a long buildup, the ending felt a bit rushed. It wrapped up too simply to be completely believable. That aside, I enjoyed this story.
The plot was interesting, because it was so unique. I wanted to see how it all unfolded, and what would happen if and when Kelli met up with her family who believes she is dead.
I liked the small town characters, and the pull that Kelli feels between California and Tennessee. Overall, this a good rainy day read.
