Colt Atwood is going places, leaving the small town of Dillon Creek in his past after tragedy strikes. Anywhere but home, he searches for ways to fix the holes where the wind blows through him—and he fails time and time again.
It isn’t until Colt gets injured and returns home to face his family, his brothers, and the reasons he left in the first place that he realizes that only she can fix the wind.

It was easy for Anna Cain to leave Dillon Creek for college in the city. After she and Colt made love and he left, she needed something to take her away from the only place she’s ever known.
Anna doesn’t expect to go back home to Dillon Creek, but when she’s made an offer she can’t refuse, she knows she has to take it. Go back to face the pieces of her broken family, to the tragedy she left behind, and him—the only man who always said she was more.
Will Colt and Anna be able to repair what went so terribly wrong, or will go down in the storm they started all those years ago?

Taking Anna is the first book in the Dillon Creek series and tells the story of Anna and Colt.

When I heard that J. Lynn Bailey was coming out with a new series, I was so excited! I loved the Granite Harbor series and I knew that I was going to like this series too. Although it took me a bit to get into the story, I really liked this book and I couldn’t get enough of Anna and Colt.

Anna and Colt have a history together and now that they’re older and both back in Dillon Creek, they cannot ignore their history. Anna is such a kind and loving person but she’s also blind. She doesn’t realise what Colt feels for her. Colt is a handsome and (really) tall guy who cannot deny his feeling for Anna. I really loved reading chapters about them from in the past and present. You really get to know their friendship and their love for each other.

Taking Anna was yet another amazing book by J. Lynn Bailey. The book was well written and fast paced, and I had to know how the story was going to end. I really liked this book and I cannot wait to read the next book in the Dillon Creek series, Saving Tess.
