When top-flight journalists Hadley Callahan and Mitch Samuals married two years ago, theirs had been declared the celebrity wedding of the year. But, now, Hadley unexpectedly returns to Stringybark Creek alone to tell her parents one major piece of news while determinedly hiding another even more explosive secret.
Hadley's big society wedding had killed any hopes that Oliver Dawson, the Callahans' neighbor and Griff Callahan's best friend, had nurtured since his teenage years when Hadley was his best friend's little sister and thus out-of-bounds.
While Hadley's in town, the shocking suicide of one of their old school friends brings them together as they mourn their loss. Hadley and Ollie begin a campaign to raise awareness of rural mental health, both wanting to make a difference.
With Mitch putting pressure on Hadley to keep quiet, and the secret she's keeping causing her great anguish, Hadley's feelings for Ollie take her by surprise. But her life is so messed up at the moment--what future could they possibly have together?
Return to Stringybark Creek concludes the Callahan family trilogy with a delightfully irresistible story of loyalty, hope, and the importance of staying true to yourself.
