Emma Benson's view of life was crafted as a child by the death of her brother, the abandonment by her father and later, the man she trusted she would marry. A teacher by training, she forgoes her chosen path to save the Wisconsin farm she calls home from financial ruin.
A tornado threatens damage, but David Schlosser- back in town after years in New York writing best-selling novels—could ruin her neatly tended life. He's looking for the charms of the small town he once rejected and finds more than he bargained for. He risks everything to get what he wants.
The storms of life throw Emma and David together and into the world of a criminal determined to ruin their plans by any means necessary. Robbery and near death connect Emma and David to their nemesis and during the throes of securing life and limb they make every effort to resist falling for one another.
This is a very cute story, although Emma did rub me the wrong way to start with. Her attitude made me want to smack her a couple times. But the more I thought about it the more I realized that something bad had to have happened to her to make her act that way.We later find out her brother died as a child, and her father abandoned the family. So she has some trust issues, especially when it comes to men.
When we meet David, he is kind of a mystery. He has feelings for Emma from the start, which confuse me. Why would anyone want to put up with someone who's always mean? But he pursues her. Which I think scares her a little bit.
I thought this was going to be a simple mystery but the twist at the end just makes the story all the better! I don't want to give anything away, but this is a very good, clean Romance/ Mystery.
