Wildwood Creek
By Lisa Widget

With love and loss tangled together, how was she to know where her life would lead. Allie Kirkland has always heard the call of her father's unfinished destiny. When she's offered a production assistant's job on a docudrama filming in the hills near Moses Lake, Texas the dream of following in her director - father's footsteps suddenly seems within reach. The reenactment of the legendary frontier settlement of Wildwood is the first step into yhr film industry. A summer on set in the wilderness is a small price to pay for a dream.

But in 1861 the real Wildwood held dangerous realities. Town founder Harland Delavan held helpless residents, including young Irish schoolteacher Bonnie Rose in an iron grip. Mysterious disappearances led to myths and legends still retold in the region's folk songs. Eventually the entire sight was found abandoned. When filming begins strange connections begin to surface between Allie and the teacher who disappeared of a century ago, and everyone in Wildwood - including Black Fulton Allie's handsome neighbor on the film set - seem to be hiding secrets. Allie doesn't know who she can trust. If she can't find the answers in time history may repeat itself … with the most unthinkable results.

Lisa Wingate is a popular inspirational speaker and national bestselling author of several books, including the ACFW Carol Award-winners Never Say Never and Dandelion Summer. Lisa and her family live in Central Texas. 

I love these kind of western romance books, like Firefly Island, I just get so sucked into them. Lisa Wingate does a fantastic job of creating a setting I love, and also makes this book very tension filled, so its more of a western mystery than anything else, all of that around a girl trying to fulfill her dream, and there's a book I can hardly put down. You'll be turing the pages as fast as you can and rooting  for Allie the whole way. If you liked The Girl in the Glass or Abducted, you'll want to pick this one up.
