Take Me Back is the 4th book in Paradise, Idaho but can easily be read as a stand alone book. The main characters are Jim and Hallie. Jim and Hallie had one night of sex when they were younger and then Jim went off to the Army. Hallie eventually left her hometown and made a life for herself. Hallie’s father who is a horrible person dies in the beginning of this book bringing Hallie home. In order to inherit she has to stay in his home for 6 months and not have sex with Jim. Jim and Hallie have a lot of sexual tension. Here’s where I had a bit of a problem (once you find out everything that really happened between Jim and Hallie I can’t quite figure out why she was still infatuated/in love with him. Let’s face it, Jim was a huge jerk as a young man and Hallie deserved better. What I did like is that Jim admitted what a rotten guy he was as a young man and that he should have treated Hallie better. He had to work to get her to be in a relationship with him again and I loved that. What didn’t really work for me was the suspense. Their were enough suspects to keep in interesting but I never really understood the motivation for the escalation of violence towards Hallie. It happened so quickly and IMO wasn’t explained well enough. I also would have liked to have seen more interaction between Jim’s daughter and Hallie because there were definitely some issues that needed to be worked out there. Overall, though I enjoyed the book and would definitely read another in the series. I give this book 4 Charms.
