As I was getting ready to type this up I realized I read the first book in this series, What We Find, back before I was regularly posting my reviews here. So if you’d like to see what I had to say about that first book you can see my review on Goodreads by clicking the linked title.
Although I love Robyn Carr, I felt the beginning of this story was super slow. I had similar feelings overall to the first book in the series but this one wasn’t quite as slow as the first book. It is a lovely story and we get to meet even more people in the town around Sully’s place. I can never fault this author for her characters. They are always wonderful and quirky.
Sierra is a sympathetic character, mostly because she doesn’t shy away from her faults. And she doesn’t allow others to gloss over the not-so-great things she’s done in the past. Sometimes she’s even too hard on herself. Connie is a great hero which is quite evident when he tells Sierra that he’s not concerned about her past mistakes, that he’s concerned about who she is now and her past made her who she is. C’mon! How sweet is he?
I have to say, I love that we have a big, buff, firefighter with the name Connie. It really endeared him to me even more. The things he had gone through in terms of relationships really could have turned him into a jerk. To be fair, it seems he may have gone through such a phase for a short while before the beginning of this particular story. But he didn’t let it turn him bitter. And he was just so darn patient with Sierra, even without knowing the full story of what was holding her back.
Even with the slow start, I fell into this story pretty quickly. There were a few things left unresolved with other characters that I hope are addressed in later books. But it’s nothing that stops this story from having its own satisfying conclusion.
