A Silver Springs Novel (Book 8)

MIRA (June 29, 2021)

Contemporary Romance/2nd Chance/Small Town

when i found you


The latest book in the Silver Springs series merges with Novak’s Whiskey Creek. It can be read as a standalone novel. This book focuses on Mack and Natasha. There is such a strong connection between the two which comes across the pages. Enjoyed reading and seeing how the characters overcame the barriers that were keeping them apart as their history is complicated. One thing I found odd was that Natasha was such a pushover for her ex and his family. I didn’t think it fit as a person who built a career of a pediatrician and once owned her own practice. I guess it possible she’s confident in her professional life and no quite so in her personal life. I liked Mack having her back and Natasha’s character had growth. The writing is wonderful and I enjoyed the story.

Bonus short story at the back of book. It’s centered around Victorian Day seven years prior. Don’t miss it!

Sometimes the biggest emotional risk can reap the best romantic reward…

After everything she worked for is destroyed, pediatrician Natasha Gray is determined to build a new life. Divorced, bankrupt and suddenly a single mom, she’s ready to start over in Silver Springs—on her own. She certainly doesn’t need help from Mack Amos, the man who’s already broken her heart twice.

Although Mack has had feelings for Tash since they first met, too many things have stood in the way. He’s always given her the support she needs, though, and he’ll do the same now. Even if the desire he wrestles with threatens to undermine his intentions…

But her heart is not the only reason Natasha wants to keep Mack at bay. More time in her life means getting closer to her son, which could lead to a revelation neither of them is ready to face.

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 eight Rita nominations, the Book Buyer’s Best, the Book Seller’s Best, the Silver Bullet 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 playing pickleball or raising funds for diabetes research (her youngest son has this disease). So far, Brenda has raised $2.6 million!
