For Sierra Jones, Sullivan's Crossing is meant to be a brief stopover. She's put her troubled past behind her but the path forward isn't yet clear. A visit with her big brother Cal and his new bride, Maggie, seems to be the best option to help her get back on her feet.

Not wanting to burden or depend on anyone, Sierra is surprised to find the Crossing offers so much more than a place to rest her head. Cal and Maggie welcome her into their busy lives and she quickly finds herself bonding with Sully, the quirky campground owner who is the father figure she's always wanted. But when her past catches up with her, it's a special man and an adorable puppy who give her the strength to face the truth and fight for a brighter future. In Sullivan's Crossing Sierra learns to cherish the family you are given and the family you choose.

Firefighter ROMANCE Small-town SUSPENSE

In ANY DAY NOW by Robyn Carr, we are back at Sullivan’s Crossing and camping season is just beginning. Carr hit it out of the park with the romance, local happens and suspenseful plot. Not since the Virgin River series have I enjoyed one of her books this much.

Carr shares Sierra Jones’ story and introduces us to more locals, in particular, a hot Firefighter/EMT named Conrad, but folks call him “Connie.” Sierra is Cal’s younger sister. She’s trying to rebuild her life and has come to Colorado. I quickly connected with Sierra and admired her strength. We learn she is on the road to recovery both from addiction and a troubled past that has left her scarred. Not wanting to crowd the newlyweds, she checks into a hostel but soon finds herself in one of the cabins at Sully’s.

ANY DAY NOW felt like coming home and visiting old friends. The heart of the story, however, was Sierra and it had me flipping the pages hoping for an HEA. As Sierra settles in she soon finds herself building ties within the community and her friendship blossoms with Sully. I adore Sully and the way he gets involved. Sierra finds work and for the first time cares for something. While Sierra isn’t ready to handle a relationship and doesn’t trust her own feelings, Conrad soon shows her there are good people out there. I loved getting Conrad’s back story. It was nice to have an honest to goodness good guy for a hero. Their developing relationship felt genuine and provided moments of humor and swoons.

Side threads included a developing romance between two single parents, a strange woman who lies, and updates on characters we have previously met. I loved seeing Maggie and Cal. We catch up with them as they work on renovating their barn.

The suspense thread offered some nail biting moments and a family reunion. It allowed Sierra to grow, become confident and faces down her fears. Carr did an excellent job with character development, bringing to light addiction and showing how woman become trapped. She seamlessly shed light on these darker subjects while delivering a feel-good romance.

ANY DAY NOW was delightful from beginning to end. I cannot wait to return to Sullivan’s Crossing.

    I loved this one, too! Sierra is really amazing. And Connie is such a sweetheart.

  2. Angie

    I’m glad to see you loved this one! This is another author who I have been ‘meaning to get to.’ This might be a great place to start since the series is only two books deep. I do love a series that feels like coming home. 🙂

    Great review!

  3. Ethan

    This sounds like a definite return to form. I appreciate that Carr adds a little suspense amongst the romance too.

    I’m starting this one tonight so I only skimmed this review but I did see enough to make me excited about reading it. I love when it feels like coming home or visiting old friends!

  5. Lorna

    Well I really liked the sound of this, but I am wondering at the price. The first book was $7.99 and this one is $12.99 for a Kindle book? I just can’t and that’s a shame.

    This is another new author to me. I haven’t heard about this author and this series before. Since starting my blog, I’ve known more authors and been introduced to lots of new books. Sometimes I get overwhelmed but so excited at the same time. A wonderful feeling.
    Awesome review, as always, Kim. I love your reviews. Flawless.

    Sounds like you had a great time with this one, Kimberly. I love a story/series set in Colorado and one with a large colorful cast like this…a strange woman who lies?!? Yep, you have me curious. 😉

    One of my friends is a big fan of Robyn Carr, and I’ve been meaning to try one of her books. I admit nowadays I’m hesitant to pick up stories featuring a heroine running from her troubled past, but this story sounds interesting. I enjoy books with small town setting and strong community feeling. And Conrad sounds like a wonderful hero. Great review, Kim!
