OrangeReviewStarStretched to the breaking point by crushing personal disappointment and work-related stress, neurosurgeon Maggie Sullivan leaves Denver for a much-needed rest and heads to the Rockies and Sullivan's Crossing, her father's general store and family campground. Her hope is to decompress, heal, and get her life back on track. The last thing she wants is another relationship. Cal Jones isn't looking for one either; he's in the Rockies on another mission entirely. But when Maggie's father has a heart attack and Cal and Maggie both remain at the camp to help, they are hard-pressed to resist the attraction that flares between them. Descriptions so vivid the scent of pine and the rattle of wind in the aspens wafts from the pages and add depth and a strong feeling of place—a place that readers might like to revisit. Insightfully realized central figures, a strong supporting cast, family issues, and uncommon emotional complexity make this uplifting story a heart-grabber that won't let readers go until the very end.
VERDICT A rewarding (happy) story that will appeal across the board and might require a hanky or two. Carr (Wildest Dreams) lives in Henderson, NV.
