Publisher's Summary

Dr. Leigh Culver loves practicing medicine in Timberlake, Colorado. It is a much-needed change of pace from her stressful life in Chicago. The only drawback is she misses her Aunt Helen, the woman who raised her. But it’s time Leigh has her independence, and she hopes the beauty of the Colorado wilderness will entice her aunt to visit often.  

Helen Culver is an independent woman who lovingly raised her sister’s orphaned child. Now, with Leigh grown, it’s time for her to live life for herself. The retired teacher has become a successful mystery writer who loves to travel and intends to never experience winter again.  

When Helen visits Leigh, she is surprised to find her niece still needs her, especially when it comes to sorting out her love life. But the biggest surprise comes when Leigh takes Helen out to Sullivan’s Crossing and Helen finds herself falling for the place and one special person. 

Helen and Leigh will each have to decide if they can open themselves up to love neither expected to find and seize the opportunity to live their best lives.

I really hope this isn't the last book of this series. It was such a treat to spend a few days in this small town with Robyn Carr. This book wasn't as awesome and the last but I still enjoyed it very much! I love knowing everyone gets a happy ending. One of my favorite things about this author is that she tells everyone's story no matter if they are young or old, they all get happy endings

Light Easy Read

Enjoyable life story about second chances and the importance of family support. Therese Plummer is an excellent narrator that instills enthusiasm when listening to her performance. She never sounds dull as many narrators do when reading. Her narration makes the story an enjoyable listen.

Iffy birth control is NOT birth control at all!

I am a devoted Robyn Carr fan. I have read every book she has published—many of them multiple times. However I’m becoming concerned about the message of extramarital sex with inadequate protection. (Ain’t no such thing as safe sex!). This is such a common theme where otherwise very intelligent women have sex—very goood sex— and are surprised when they show up pregnant! And everything still turns out lovely.
I love Carr’s characters. I love her settings. I enjoy the series approach. I just wish the women were more conscientious about creating random children.
