The second book in the Destiny series, Sugar Creek lets us see into two families who have been at odds for years. Many know of the generation feud, but some do not even know why or the true reason for it - including Rachel Farris and Mike Romo. Will the real reason bring these two together or keep them from reacting to the attraction that they share?
Rachel Farris has returned to her childhood home to help her Grandma with the family apple orchard business. Does she want to be here, no, but it is her turn to step up. Also it seems as if Grandma is taking a small trip down memory lane and gives Rachel bits and pieces of how she received the land that now has the apple orchard on it.
Unknown to her when arriving and after receiving a ticket from Mike Romo, he wants to buy out her Grandma and Rachel will do whatever she can to stop that from happening. Mike is a very sexy, hunky cop but he is trouble with a capital T. She must stay far away from him, but several tickets later do they try to stop the attraction between themselves?
What will it take for these two to work as a team and possibly bring them together? If they do indeed get together. Will Rachel give up her city life and stay in Destiny? Will Grandma have anything to do with these two love birds and if so, just what tricks does she have up her sleeve?
I loved this book. Toni Blake has once again written a book in a series that stands on its own. It is not necessary to read the first book, One Reckless Summer, but I would recommend it because it is just as good as Sugar Creek.
