SUMMARY

Seven years ago, Cambri Blaine fled her small hometown of Bridger, Colorado after her senior year of high school ended in a fiasco. But now her father needs help, and Cambri has no choice but to return home. So with trepidation, she takes a leave of absence from the landscape architecture firm where she works and heads home, hoping against hope that Jace Sutton is no longer around and that the past can stay where it belongs—in the past.

If only life worked that way.

Jace never expected to see Cambri again. After she walked out of his life without a backward glance, he was left with no choice but to try to forget her and move on. But now that Cambri is back and looking more beautiful and sophisticated than ever, some of those old feelings resurface, and Jace instinctively knows, for the sake of his heart, that he needs to avoid her at all costs.

If only it were that easy. 




REVIEW

Righting a Wrong is yet another wonderful addition to the Ripple Effect Romance compilation. Following a similar pattern to the previous two novellas, Home Matters and Silver Linings, this quick read explores Jace and Cambri’s search for love, forgiveness, and happiness. What I’m loving most about the format of this series is that with each new instalment we already have a feel for the main character (from the previous novella), and the reader is introduced to the main role player of the next story. As with its predecessors, Righting a Wrong features well-rounded characters and a strong plot with clean romance that will set your heart a-flutter. I’ve never read any of Rachael Anderson’s books before, but this short story was a great way to introduce her writing to me. I am now a fan!




EXCERPT

Her father eyed her hand with disdain. “I feel fine. I don’t need a bunch of medication to mess that all up.”

    “No medication, no breakfast.” Cambri wriggled her palm.

    “What’s for breakfast?”

    Her eyebrow lifted. “I can tell you it’s not the fatted calf.”

    Although he harrumphed, a twinkle of humor appeared. “I almost forgot how cheeky you could be.”

    “And I almost forgot how ornery you could be.”

    He rolled his eyes, but grudgingly accepted the pills, swallowing them with a sip of water. Then he settled back against his pillow. “I always have sausage, eggs, and hash browns on Saturdays.”

    “Believe it or not, I remember.” Cambri retrieved a breakfast tray from the kitchen and set it on his lap, mentally preparing herself for what would come.

    “What’s that supposed to be?” Her father stared at the food in disgust.

    “Oatmeal, whole wheat toast, and freshly squeezed OJ,” said Cambri smoothly. “Try it. You might like it.”

   “Why isn’t there butter on this toast? Where’s my sausage and hash browns?”

   “Your heart doesn’t want bacon and hash browns. It wants oatmeal.”

   “Bullwinkle.”
