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

The same pregnancy story

I am not sure why Robyn Carr's books have some poor women or girl
getting pregnant in every story. It seems to be an obsession. The story lines are great except for that !

A good listen!

Robyn Carr is an excellent author and Ms. Plummer is a great narrator. However, I wish Robyn Carr wouldn’t use so much profanity in her stories and although I like Therese, Robyn uses her in every single one of her books. So much that I get the characters confused, because although done well, Therese only has so many voices that she uses. It would be great if Robyn switched it up a bit by using a different narrator.

Good, although...

I enjoyed, but not as compelling to me as others in the series. Not sure why. Not as much depth to the characters and somewhat formulaic in reusing previous plot devices. Everything too easily resolved. By the end I didn’t care about the characters like I usually do.

Repetitive words

"He said, she said" was repeated in the narration. Also the same voice attempting to portray the different characters. This was annoying.
