Treasure on Lilac Lane (Jewell Cove, #2)Sometimes the journey home is its own reward.

Once upon a time, Rick Sullivan had a promising future. One of Jewell Cove's star athletes and reigning heartthrobs, he joined the Marines and had the world in the palm of his hand…until it all came crashing down. His honorable discharge doesn't make him the hometown hero everyone wants him to be, and there's little reprieve from the demons that haunt him at night. Still, even though it seems that all hope is gone, fate has something else in store…

Just hearing Rick's name is enough to give Jess Collins a headache. Years ago, they'd been close. Now she barely knows the man Rick has become since his return from service…then again, Jess isn't that same young, na├»ve girl anymore either. And while there's a powerful attraction between them—one that yields a greater passion than Jess could have ever imagined—both are wary about opening their hearts to love…and loss. But happy endings don't come easily when long-buried secrets insist on rising to the surface. Will their pasts tear them apart—or can love find a way to heal them both?

A fascinating story about a war vet coming back to his home town to bury his mother and to work out his own PTSD since leaving the Marines. He is also having to deal with a certain women that he thought he was over when he left after high school. She was a few years younger than him but her family grew up next to his mothers and she was always around. They now are both dealing with feelings and emotions that neither one has experienced in their lives for a long time. They fight being together because each enjoy being by themselves, so friends come up with ways to put them together and once they are they start to work out the issues between them but also in them. He has a few things that he has not told anyone, until her and he finds out something that had happen to her. When you finally think you are at the end there is still one last bit of information that puts the story to rest for the time being. At times this a very emotional book, but a very good story with both lead characters being strong, but at times weak, which adds to the book. I really liked this book very much. I got this book from net galley.
