Sometimes the past we leave behind leads us right where we belong.

Talulah Barclay doesn’t like complications. Unfortunately, they seem to love her. Fourteen years after leaving her fiancé at the altar, Talulah returns to her hometown of Coyote Canyon, Montana, to settle her great-aunt’s estate. As she’d feared, her “runaway bride” reputation is waiting right where she left it, and her ex’s best friend, Brant, isn’t about to let her slip by unnoticed.

Brant has always been a loyal friend, but Talulah’s decision to run isn’t the only thing he hasn’t forgotten. He remembers more about Talulah than he cares to admit. Vividly. And it’s increasingly difficult to ignore her now, especially when they find themselves in close quarters. Talulah has no plans to stay in town after she fixes up her aunt’s Victorian farmhouse, even if the unbridled sparks with Brant give her a good reason to linger. Besides, bailing on relationships is kind of her thing. But a lot has changed since Talulah last turned tail—maybe her heart has changed, too?


Brenda Novak charms with a brand new addictive series! Coyote Canyon is a small town in Montana where scores are out to be settled as the town outcast has the nerve to show her face amongst them again and tempers flare at the same time as attraction for Talulah Barclay. The main character and her angst is highly addictive and getting to know our way around the town is quite informative. I really enjoyed Talulah and Brant and getting a little intrigue thrown in with our happily ever after on this one. I’m looking forward to more to come in the town!

I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a small town romance with history between the characters before their love connection is made. The supporting cast of town folk was very entertaining.
