Welcome to Texas, and the Wilder brothers series.
This is a ‘spin-off’ series focusing on Eliza’s brothers (who were first briefly introduced in Inked Obsession [book two of the Montgomery Ink: Fort Collins mini-series]).
One Way Back to Me is the first in the series and focuses on Eli and Alexis and takes place about two years after ‘A Night for Us’ (the free prequel to the series).
Eli and his brothers bought land from a retired Air Force general, and are slowly figuring out the ‘civilian’ life—including how to run a resort and winery.
Each brother has their own little piece, and the resort and winery are going well—but they need a wedding coordinator.
They’ve gone through two wedding coordinators in two years, and are desperate for one that will last.
Who should apply for the job—the one woman that Eli didn’t think he’d ever see again—Alexis.
Alexis applies for the job, as she is need of a new beginning after the disastrous end to her marriage.
The brothers hire her on as the new wedding coordinator for the Wilder Retreat and Winery.
Alexis and Eli realize that their attraction to each other wasn’t just a ‘one-night’ thing.
While they’re trying to figure out their relationship—someone comes ‘knocking’.
What does Alexis’s ex want? How big of a pain will the Dodge family be, and who is being hired as the top chef???
The answers to those questions, and a ‘surprise’ visit from a few familiar faces from Colorado can be found within the pages of ‘One Way Back to Me’.
I absolutely loved this book and the introduction of Eliza’s brothers. I will freely admit that when I read she had six brothers—I had my fingers crossed that there would be another spinoff series.
Carrie Ann did not disappoint with this book. I loved Eli and Alexis’s story, and am going to have to hold off until all of the Wilder boys get their happily-ever-after before I can decide on my ‘favorite’.
So, grab a drink, pull up a chair and settle in to find out what the Wilder boys are up to and I’m hoping to see a glimpse of Eliza and family in each additional book.
I give ‘One Way Back to Me’ five out of five stars and highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
