Return to Hidden Mountain....
Lorelei Stewart has always accepted her role as the town tramp's daughter and has earned her fast and loose reputation. She's a hard woman who pays her way and asks for nothing, but times change. Pregnant and overburdened with responsibility, she's given up on men and has a plan to provide her baby with what she never had as a child; a decent home and a loving mother. The old bootlegger, Rollie Roper, needs a caretaker and has room for Lorelei and her coming child; a fair exchange.
Everything's almost perfect until Rollie's long lost nephew, Cob Thornton, turns up with money and plans of his own and those plans don't include the woman living in his house, yet something about Lorelei fascinates him. He begins to see past the cold armor she wears to protect herself from pain and finds a vulnerable and loving woman within. Now all he has to do, with a little help from old and new friends, is convince the pessimistic Lorelei that sometimes, changing times can be a blessing in disguise.

Wonderful Medley of Characters From Small Town....
The push and pull between Lorelei and Cob. The banter, love and mutual respect between Lorelei & old Rollie Roper.
The constant misunderstanding could drive someone crazy, but to me it added so many dimensions: the town and disbelief about Lorelei, the town and its belief about Rollie, the town and its belief about Cob. Everyone has an opinion about whether Lorelei is a pregnant tramp, like her mother? Or why Cob would be interested in her? Wouldn't he be grateful to have a woman like Lorelei. There is also the speculation about Lorelei pregnancy. Who is the child's father, why would anyone want to hang around with that baggage, as Lorelei herself doesn't understand!
It is absolutely a delight to listen to, in part because of the narration by Leah Frederick. What a handful of characters to navigate and she does it with ease.
Anyone who would like the feel of hometown USA, the rumor mills as well as all of the good things like country picnics, church on Sunday the old ladies gossiping – the men even more so; will enjoy this smart, dramatic, and a bit of fun!
It has a throw back feel of the 1950's, complete with diner that seems to be the heartbeat of the town - with the complications and responsibilities of now & then.
I loved this book and was surprised to find it was 2nd in a series. It certainly stands alone!
Notes: Some risque scenes, strong language
