My Review:
My granddaughter is getting married in a few days.  So, naturally, I have been gravitating toward books that involve weddings.  And what could be better than a book about weddings from one of my favorite authors, Brenda Novak!!

As interesting as this storyline was, I am so glad my granddaughter's wedding will be nothing like the one portrayed in When We Touch. No, no, no!

This was a prequel to the Whiskey Creek series and it was quite the introduction.  With only around 110 pages, it was a quick read, but packed with a story that made your eyes go wide and your heart go thumpity thump!  Great story, but way too short.  I guess I'll need to read more from this series to get my fill!

My Rating:

About the Author:
It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak's career as a bestselling author--she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home.

"When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book," Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and won many awards, including five Rita nominations, the Book Buyer's Best, the Book Seller's Best and the National Reader's Choice Award.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children--three girls and two boys. When she's not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually raising funds for diabetes research (her youngest son has this disease). So far, Brenda has raised $2.6 million.
