Home to Whiskey Creek (Whiskey Creek, #4) by Brenda Novak
The last two books of this series have been good but emotions are all over the place. I cried, laughed but got mad a lot in different places. I know its just a story but I wanted to slap some people. It deals with some real tough situations.
It is full of drama, love, honor and even suicide.
Noah is out riding his bike when he hears a women screaming for help. He finds her down a mine shaft close to the mine shaft that his twin Cody died in fifteen years ago. He goes back to his truck and got some rope and was able to pull her out. Noah was shocked when he saw her.
Adelaide was kidnapped out of her bed at her grandmother's home. Tied up and threatened to kill her and her grandmother with a knife. She was blindfolded and put in a truck. She was told if she ever talked about what happened fifteen years ago he would kill her. She caused him to hit something. was beat up and thrown now the shaft.
He must have been one of the four guys who gang raped her at a party the night of their graduation. She was only 16 at the time. She never came back to Whiskey Creek if she could help it. Now her grandmother was getting old and needed some help.
She never told about that night because one of the attackers came back and she fought him and he hit one of the supports and was buried. It was Cody Noah's twin.
Noah was into all sports in high school. So was his brother Cody. But the last part of their senior year Cody was doing drugs and drinking and Noah wanted no part of that lifestyle so he was at a different type of party that night.
Addy did not want to be around Noah because of memories of Cody and what he and his friends did too her that night. She also did not want him to take her to the hospital or police just home.
There was a lot of destroying Addy's reputation so she would not be believed if she ever came out and told what happened that night. The guys were worried about what they would loose if their friends and family knew what they did.
It is so much easier for people to think a 16 year old would sleep with 5 guys in one night. When she was shy then think the guys did anything.
Baxter Noah's best friend kisses him and lets him know that he is gay and LOVEs him. Shocks him when that happened too.
There were some love scenes that I skipped over. It is a good book full of emotions from lots of different characters. We see most of the characters from the other books in the series meet still for Friday coffee.
I was given this ebook and asked to give honest review in exchange by Netgalley.

Description below taken off of Goodreads.
Sometimes home is the refuge you need-and sometimes it isn't Adelaide Davies, who's been living in Sacramento, returns to Whiskey Creek, the place she once called home. She's there to take care of her aging grandmother and to help with Gran's restaurant, Just Like Mom's. But Adelaide isn't happy to be back. There are too many people here she'd rather avoid, people who were involved in that terrible June night fifteen years ago.
Ever since the graduation party that changed her life, she's wanted to go to the police and make sure the boys responsible-men now-are punished. But she can't, not without revealing an even darker secret. So it's better to pretend....
Noah Rackham, popular, attractive, successful, is shocked when Adelaide won't have anything to do with him. He has no idea that his very presence reminds her of something she'd rather forget. He only knows that he's finally met a woman he could love.
