Publisher's Summary

Evie Blanchard was at the top of her field in the city of angels. But when an emotional year forces her to walk away from her job as a physical therapist, she moves from Los Angeles to Hope's Crossing seeking a quieter life. So the last thing she needs is to get involved with the handsome, arrogant Brodie Thorne and his injured daughter, Taryn.

A self-made man and single dad, Brodie will do anything to get Taryn the rehabilitation she needs...even if it means convincing Evie to move in with them. And despite her vow to keep an emotional distance, Evie can't help but be moved by Taryn's spirit, or Brodie's determination to win her help - and her heart. With laughter, courage, and more than a little help from the kindhearted people of Hope's Crossing, Taryn may get the healing she deserves - and Evie and Brodie might just find a love they never knew could exist.

Strong Mountain Women

Woodrose Mountain celebrated strong, confident women (PT therapist Evie and her circle of female friends) who live in a small Colorado town where neighbors help one another and genuinely care about those less fortunate.

Hope Crossing residents were not perfect; trouble teen Taryn made horrible choices which caused the death of a close friend. Without excusing her bad behavior or condemning Taryn as unredeemable, her father Brody enlisted the professional services of Evie.

Thankfully Brody liked and respected women, trusting Evie's abilities and instincts, even when he did not understand or agree with all her choices. The engaging plot included growing friendships, dealing with death, and learning to trust, in addition to romance and adorable dogs.

Only negative for me: no diversity. An entire town without even one person of color???

Great addition to the series

Would you listen to Woodrose Mountain again? Why?

Will probably listen again. This narrator is much better than the narrator in Blackberry Summer. I love a series that fleshes out the different characters.

What did you like best about this story?

Loved Evie's story and the suspense around Taren's secret.

Have you listened to any of Claire Christie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

this is the first time I've listened to this narrator. She does a credible job. More of a read than a performance.

Great Series. Wish book one was on audible, too.

If you could sum up Woodrose Mountain in three words, what would they be?

Community of friends

What other book might you compare Woodrose Mountain to and why?

Virgin River. It very much about friendships and hardships. Community comes together to help each other. It's very similar to the work of Robyn Carr and Emily March's Eternity Springs series.

Have you listened to any of Claire Christie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Just the other books in this series. I like her work very much. Doesn't make me want to tune her out or wish for another narrator.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Some of both. I have a lot of empathy for what life can deal to people that must be overcome. Books can take a person away from some of their own problems for awhile and give you breathing room to deal with whatever you have to get through.
