Marnie Whitlock has never known what it’s like to be normal. Her ability to see the future and people’s innermost thoughts makes her an outcast—feared—loathed. Even by her own parents. And her father is determined to beat the curse out of her. Her only chance for survival is to escape Surrender.
Beckett Hamilton has loved Marnie since they were kids, but one horrible night destroyed any future he’d hoped for. Now Marnie was back in Surrender, and picking up where they left off is the only thing on his mind. He finds out quickly that some hearts take longer to heal, and not everyone that’s broken can be fixed. But loving Marnie isn’t an option—it’s his destiny.
TROUBLE MAKER packs quite a punch and is both heartbreaking and heartwarming, but it’s also a good way to touch base with all the MacKenzies.
Marnie Whitlock’s gift has been more of a curse than a blessing all her life and leaving Surrender was the only way to escape the memories of a less than ideal home, an abusive father determined to beat the curse out of her and mother who did nothing to stop the abuse. But Marnie only exchanged one prison for another and is now determined to take charge of her life and her future. The first step to taking charge of her life is returning home to Surrender.
It’s been fifteen years since Beckett Hamilton saw Marnie but she’s had his heart all this time. His biggest regret is his inability to save her from her abusive father but her return is the perfect opportunity to see if the fledging feelings between them survived the time apart and Beckett will not give up until Marnie is his nor will he stand by while another man tries to hurt her again.
I think this is the most emotional story of this series so far and I loved Marnie and Beckett. My heart broke for Marnie and how she grew up, but she was a survivor and fighter with a core of steel who retained her sweetness through all the hardships of life. Beckett was a charming and adorable cowboy from the first and I loved that he did not give up on Marnie.
I have enjoyed every book in this series and look forward to more, especially Shane’s story.
