A good start to a new series by Brenda Novak.
The search for her birth mother leads Cora to Silver Springs and the New Horizons Boys School where on the first day she meets Elijah, her birth mother's adopted son. Although there are definite sparks, Eli tells Cora that there can be nothing between them except a physical relationship. Before long, Eli is having trouble keeping his distance and Cora is conflicted about whether or not to tell her secret.
This is not one of my favorite books by Brenda Novak, but that could be because so many of my favorite books come from her Whiskey Creek series and I'm not ready to leave them behind.
