About the book:
Set in South Dakota in 1975, where eighteen-year-olds could order 3.2 beer in a bar, and loaded guns were kept under the counter.
Frankie Valli sang "My Eyes Adored You," and American soldiers returning from Vietnam struggled with their new reality.
It's within this tumultuous season of American history that Tillie Caselli meets Noah Hansen, and they are never the same again. Their lives were mysteriously intertwined-and had been for many years-yet they had no idea.
From the moment they met, Tillie and Noah wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, but a deliberate omission will keep them apart---and that same omission will be responsible for the escape of a murderer, and a bride's deception.

"The Pretender" is an excellent start to a brand-new series by Ta'Mara Hanscom! Tillie "Angel" as she is nicknamed by her brothers is the youngest and only daughter of the family and she is a good girl. However, that does not prevent her from falling for a bad boy, which happens one night when she walks into a bar to check on her friends. There is Noah, a bad boy who has been on a downward spiral during recent years and he is trying to cope with a living a normal life after Vietnam. Once these two meet, there lives are never the same.
Ta'Mara does an incredible job with beginning this series and introducing the reader to the Caselli family, a seemingly typical loving family, the parents who do not want their daughter following and falling for the wrong kind of guy. There are so many pieces to this story and I cannot wait to read more about the other members of the Caselli family as the characters all became so real to me in the book. This is also set during such an interesting and tumultuous time, in the mid-70's, a time that I have not read many books set during, but a time that there was much unrest politically and a lot of changes in society. This adds a historical element to the story and an additional layer to the storyline. This is a great book to read if you are looking for a new series to become immersed in!
