I lost all respect for Cheyenne in this installment of the series. Which is sad, because her book was my favorite of the series. The plotting she was doing behind her husband's back was unacceptable. Sure, she thought it was for a good cause, but it was not the way to handle it. It was downright deceptive and manipulative. What she was doing was grounds for a divorce in my opinion because how can you stay married to someone who's that conniving and you can't trust? I just couldn't bring myself t ...more

This was by far the worst of the Whiskey Creek series. The adorable Cheyenne and Dylan have become lecturing and annoying, and don't even get me started on that stupid subplot of Chey trying to become pregnant. Did the author turn this series over to some ghostwriter? It sure didn't feel like the same characters.
Aaron and Presley were boring. A total lack of chemistry. And we conveniently just keep hearing about their "past troubles". Hello!? They were both on crack cocaine and had to go to reh

Seriously, all the lying and sneaking! Through out the whole book. A major let down, this one. I hate reading about mentally handicapped adults. Gives me headache.

After all that juvenile drama with Aaron, Presley and Cheyenne, I felt sorry for Dylan. I reckon the truth will come out and snowballed in the future books soon, and I will hate reading about it then too.

**I really dislike giving a book 1 star but I think this is the worst of the series.

The subplot was so CRAZY out there that it took away from the main characters. If you enjoyed When Snow Falls with Dylan & Cheyenne you may not want to read this book. I would have preferred to have Ms Novak kill off Cheyenne than go ahead with this insane story. I kept thinking this can't be happening. There was not even a trace of Cheyenne in this book. This was a completely different person. I wondered if so

Wow! There was so much wrong with this story I was tempted not to finish it. I didn't feel Aaron or Presley. Not only did I not feel their relationship, I didn't like either of them. Oh… and the subplot about Cheyenne, Dylan and trying to get pregnant? Wrong!!!!

This is the first Whiskey Creek story I did not enjoy. Presley got on my nerves so much. I understand that she had a difficult life, and it is wonderful that she managed to turn her life around, but I couldn't stand how she thought she knew everything. Presley seemed to think she had all of the answers about everyone - how they thought and what they felt. It was irritating to read how the characters kept saying that Presley was a different person and had turned her life around, and yet, Presley ...more

First I want to say I love the Whiskey Creek series but this book just didn't do it for me. I became so irritated by the characters acting so sneaky and lying ... about everything! I hope the next one is better because I really do like this series.

I've looked forward to Presley's story as she has emerged from the lowest depths to completely turnaround her life. The only drawback was the big lie concerning the paternity of her 18-month old son. She's not only not told the father, Aaron Amos, he has a son but Presley out and out denied that he was. And, her sister Cheyenne is in on the secret and she's married to Aaron's brother.

This one was just so so for me. I liked it but there were some issues that held it back for me. First let's discuss Riley. He's just looking desperate here. He asks this chick out and says "I just want to see if you're the one for me." No guy does that. There was no reason for him to even suggest it since they'd never had any sort of even friendship before. Talk about seeming desperate. He just latched on to whatever female comes into town in a desperate attempt to score a wife? Lame.

DNF at 57%.

This has to be one of the stupidest storylines I've ever read. Just ridiculously immature and shenanigan laden antics.

On the night her mother died, Presley went looking for comfort in the arms of her lover Aaron. But she never meant as much to him as he did to her and he coldly rejected her. Broken hearted she left Whiskey Creek taking with her the secret that she was carrying his baby.

Two years have passed and Presley has got her life back on track and returned to Whiskey Creek. Dirt poor but determined to make a better life for herself and her son she sinks everything she has into a small business teaching y
Let me just say from the get go that I love Brenda Novak and I love this series. I bit the bullet and bought this book because none of the libraries in my area had a copy that I could borrow and my OCS wouldn't let me skip this story even though I didn't care for the Presley and Aaron mentions in Cheyenne and Dylan's book.

I felt compelled to write a review for this one though because I was soooo bothered by the whole Cheyenne/Dylan/Aaron/Presley pregnancy sub plot. By the time I finished the bo

My least favorite of the series so far, which is too bad because I was really looking forward to it. Presley had been a hot mess when she left town two years ago. She had been into parties, drugs and sex, and Aaron had been her cohort of choice. She had been crazy in love with him, even though he didn't feel the same way about her, and made a real pest of herself at times. When he turned her away at a time she really needed him, she fled in despair.

What the flipping hell was that?

I cannot believe that I was actually sitting hear reading about Cheyenne's solution to her baby problem and seeing all related parties going through with her crazy ass plan. WTF?!?! No, seriously,

Then there was the introduction of the Amos's stepmother who married their father in prison and insisting that she move in with the remaining brothers. Er, no thank you.

I think I sub-consciously knew going into this book that I was going to have issues with it. Mostly because of how the storyline featuring Presley played out in a previous book in the series (#2 When Snow Falls). I knew there was going to be a secret baby theme and I hoped that I was going to be ok with it and for the most part I was…it wasn’t that part of the story that I had issues with, although I did feel as though the relationship between Presley and Aaron kind

I was so looking forward to Aaron and Presley’s story. We first met them in the third book of the series and they were a train wreck then. Both so messed up from what their mother’s had done that they had turned to drugs and sex to numb the pain. At the end of that book we knew Presley had bottomed out had gone to treatment and was pregnant with Aaron’s baby but had chosen not to tell him as he still hadn’t gotten his life straighten out. This book starts two years later when Presley comes back ...more

By far the worst release of ms Novak's whiskey series. Somehow, Presley the difficult character from a story I had initially loved, has managed to ruin one of the purest characters in this series, Cheyenne.

It seemed that this book condoned, lies, secrets and ultimately a deep betrayal all in the name of protecting a mans pride. If that was so important to Cheyenne,she would of lied and said SHE was the one with a problem and then looked at adopting.

Truthfully, I'm not certain I will return to wh

I'm slowly making my way through Brenda Novak's Whiskey Creek series and this one has a particularly interesting and potentially controversial subjsct as a side line. I'm always anxios to get to the next book to see what happens and I was happily surprised to discover that I already own the next in the series. No waiting on the library for that one :)

This book is a great easy read. I like it because of the story line and the strong characters. It gives you hope for the underdog. Things can sometimes work out.

I've got a conundrum where Come Home to Me is concerned. On one hand, I devoured it. Ate up every bit of heart-wrenching and sometimes frustrating drama. On the other hand, I can never, ever condone some of the characters' actions. The easiest way to explain this book is that I hate to love it. But it's true I loved it. I don't often devour 400 page books in a 36 hour span, when I worked 16 of those hours, and slept a good chunk of the others. This may have been my fastest reading to date, and I ...more

Review from Backchatting Books

Presley has come home to Whiskey Creek even though she knows that it will be hard to avoid her son's father, Aaron Amos. She has tried to forget Aaron over the last few years but her body simply reacts whenever he is around. They try to ignore their attraction to each other with very limited success.

Presley has definitely changed from the drugged out party girl she once was. She initially though abortion was the best way of dealing with her pregnancy but changed her

**4.5 Stars**

Brenda Novak really has a way of sucking you into a story. I loved returning to Whiskey Creek again and getting better acquainted with Presley and Aaron. Their story was a little darker than Ted and Sophia's (the last book in the series I read) and I liked it even more for that darkness. Hmm, what does that say about me? ;)

Presley Christensen is back in Whiskey Creek after two years. She wasn't in the best place when she left town. She made many bad decisions as a result of coping w

I've been waiting for Presley and Aaron's story and I wasn't disappointed. The love that Presley and Aaron felt for each other that began in WHEN SUMMER COMES (book 3) ran deep and with the fantastic writing of Brenda Novak we were treated to a love story that proved that no matter how much time or distance past that TRUE LOVE would always prevail. Aaron has some character flaws but so does Presley? Hey don't we all. This just shows that the story being told is based on true human nature. There ...more

2 ½ stars. Main plot based on secret baby. Not a good plot for me.

I’m really enjoying this series, but four of the books (#3, 4, 6 and 7) have the main character keeping a secret for most of the book as the main plot. I did not care for those. This book again uses secrets as the main plot: Presley has a baby and does not tell the father. Chey starts a lie and keeps a secret from her loving husband.

It’s mostly angst about telling lies and keeping secrets. Nothing else was going on that surprised

I had to give only 2*/5 for this book.

Honestly I wasn't a fan of Presley-Aaron since her appearance in Chey-Dylan story. And too bad, it went worse after I read their story in the sixth book of Whiskey Creek series. Their character might had a better life without drugs that seemed so easy they even forgot at all along the story, not involving the comeback of their addiction at all, didn't like Sophie who had to struggle with it in the fifth book.

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s bestselling author career.

“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home.”

However, writing was the last profession she expected to undertake. In fact, Brenda swears she didn’t have a
