Welcome To Winter In Whiskey Creek-Home Of The Gold Country! Her name is Cheyenne. But who is she? 

After growing up in cheap motels, moving from town to town with her sister and mother, Cheyenne Christensen is grateful to be on her own. She's grateful, too, for the friends she found once her family settled in California. But she's troubled by the mystery of her earliest memories, most of which feature a smiling blonde woman. A woman who isn't her mother. 

Although Cheyenne has repeatedly asked for explanations, the people who could help aren't talking. Cheyenne is set on finding answers, but without so much as a birth certificate, it won't be easy. 

Things get even more complicated when her closest friend is attracted to the man Cheyenne has secretly loved for years. For Eve's sake, she decides to step aside-which lands her right in the arms of Dylan Amos, oldest and baddest of the hell-raising Amos brothers. He's the kind of guy she's sworn to avoid. She can't afford to make a mistake, not when she finally has a chance to learn who she really is and change her life for the better. But...maybe there's more to Dylan than she thought. Maybe letting him go would be a bigger mistake.

English :

"So how is it that you, of all  people...."
She never finished the question. She didn't need to.
Maybe I've been watching you a little closer than anyone else.” With that he crossed to his motorcycle, which, she wasn't surprised to see, he'd parked illegally.
"Why would you bother?" she called out.
"Why do you think?" he replied.

Oh my God! How can I not love Dylan Amos when I read that? From that moment, I wanna shook Chey and said "Forget Joe now! Can't you see that Dylan have had this for a long time?" Though I know they will be together at the end. Hahahahahha...

The story is so sweet , a lot of ups and downs emotions while reading it. When Chey turn Dylan's offers down because she didn't want the people knew about them and she felt guilty toward Joe, I really wanted to hit Chey. Please, make up your mind! Geez. When Dylan behave lovingly to Chey, it made ​​my heart melt away.... So, could you see the ups and downs? Heheheheh..

Well, Dylan is not a perfect man, but his attitudes towards Chey made ​​me crave a man like this. Mature, responsible, and his care for the people who he loves knows no bounds. In fact, he told Chey to go out with Joe because he knew that he's not the best for her. How could I'm not melting? Though I grumble because he's so stupid too saying all of that.

Moreover, the story of Chey's real family and who she was actually, made me curious. Anita, Chey's mother who did not want to tell the truth, made me annoyed. The same as Presley who cover the truth. Hhhhhhh ...

But the ending of this book made ​​me satisfied even teary. Unfortunately, Brenda Novak just made ​​three stories for this little town, Whiskey Creek. And I want to know more about Joe, Noah, Sophie, Riley, Callie, and others. Hopefully Brenda Novak made ​​novella or another series for them.

Overall, I think the story similar with Lakeshore Chronicles by Susan Wiggs and Virgin River by Robyn Carr (well, for those who wonder why I often mention RC, I just love her books about friendship and family in a small town). Therefore, for those who like their stories, you must read Whiskey Creek ^ ^

Can't wait for the third book. Unfortunately, it published in 2013. Really curious about Eve>, <


Indonesian :

"So how is it that you, of all  people...."
She never finished the question. She didn't need to.
Maybe I've been watching you a little closer than anyone else.” With that he crossed to his motorcycle, which, she wasn't surprised to see, he'd parked illegally.
"Why would you bother?" she called out.
"Why do you think?" he replied.

Oh my God! Bagaimana aku tak mencintai Dylan ketika dia mengatakan hal tersebut? Daari saat itu, rasanya pengen guncangin Chey terus bilang  "Lupakan Joe sekarang! Emangnya kamu gak bisa lihat kalo Dylan diam-diam memerhatikanmu selama ini (bahkan mungkin mencintainya?) ?" Walaupun aku tahu mereka akan bersama pada akhirnya. Hahahahahah..

Ceritanya so sweet banget, banyak naik turun emosi baca nih cerita. Saat Chey turn down si Dylan gara-gara gak mau hubungannya diketahui orang banyak dan dia merasa bersalah sama Joe, rasanya pengen mukul Chey. Please, make up your mind! Gregetan. Saat Dylan bersikap dengan penuh sayang kepada Chey, made my heart melt away.... Nah, bisa lihat kan emosinya naik turun? Hehehheeh..

Yah, Dylan memang bukan pria sempurna, tapi setiap tindakannya kepada Chey membuatku mengidamkan pria seperti ini. Kedewasaannya, tanggung jawabnya, dan rasa sayangnya kepada orang-orang yang dicintai itu tak mengenal batas. Bahkan dia sempat menyuruh Chey untuk pergi sama Joe karena dirinya bukan yang terbaik bagi wanita itu. Gimana gak melting sih? Sekalian ngomel kenapa dia bego banget juga.

Selain itu, cerita mengenai keluarga Chey dan siapa Chey sebenarnya bikin penasaran. Kesal juga sama Anita, ibu Chey, yang gak mau terus terang. Kesal juga sama Presley karena menutup kebenaran. Hhhhhhh...

Tapi ending dari buku ini membuatku puas bahkan berkaca-kaca. Sayangnya Brenda Novak hanya membuat tiga cerita untuk kota Whiskey Creek kecil ini. Padahal aku pengen tahu nantinya Joe sama siapa? Noah bagaimana? Sophie? Riley? Callie? Semoga Brenda Novak membuat novella-nya atau seri lain untuk menceritakan sahabat-sahabat ini.

Secara keseluruhan, menurutku ceritanya setipe dengan Lakeshore Chronicles - Susan Wiggs dan Virgin River - Robyn Carr (yah, bagi yang bertanya-tanya kenapa aku sering banget sebutin RC, I just love her books about friendship and family in a small town). Oleh sebab itu, bagi yang suka cerita setipe mereka, wajib baca seri Whiskey Creek ini ^^

Gak sabar nunggu buku ketiga-nya. Sayang di NetGalley belum ada dan baru diterbitkan tahun 2013. Penasaran tentang Eve >,<
