A summer rental, a new beginning…
Hannah Russell’s carefully crafted plans for her life have been upended without warning. When her best friend died suddenly, Hannah became guardian to a five-year-old named Noah. With no experience at motherhood, she’s terrified she’s not up to the challenge. She and Noah need time to get to know each other, so she decides to rent a country house with stunning views on a lake in rural Colorado.
When they arrive at the house, they are greeted by the owner, a handsome man who promises to stay out of their way. But his clumsy Great Dane, Romeo, has other ideas and Noah immediately bonds with the lovable dog. As Hannah learns to become a mother, Owen Abrams, who is recovering from his own grief, can’t help but be drawn out of his solitude by his guests.
But life throws more challenges at this unlikely trio and they are tested in ways they never thought possible. All three will discover their strengths and, despite their differences, they will fight to become a family. And the people of Sullivan’s Crossing will rally around them to offer all of the support they need.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr delivers an emotional and triumphant novel about the fierce power of a mother’s love.
The Country Guesthouse is the fifth book in the Sullivan’s Crossing series by Robyn Carr. I honestly can say, this was my favorite story to date! Carr mixed in an oversized dog, a heart-wounded man, a sweet boy and an overwhelmed yet strong heroine.
Then Carr placed them in Sullivan’s Crossing and let things unfold. She gave us laughter, suspense, tender moments and all the feels. Even though I felt the romance was subdued in this story, yet I still felt the relationship grow and connected with the characters.
It was great to back in Sullivan’s Corner. I love Sully, and all the folks who call it home. When trouble threatens the young child, they all step in to help. The suspense tread was nice, and I even appreciated that Carr didn’t use cliched characters, particularly with the brother. Everyone is worthy of redemption in my book. Just because their cover is worn and a lot of their story doesn’t look promising, those final chapters haven’t been written. *gets down of soapbox*
The story touches on grief, family, love, and community. It delivers sweet romance that has little drama thanks to a suspenseful thread that will keep you flipping the pages.
While each of the stories in Sullivan’s Crossing have a beginning, middle and happily ever after and will work as standalone, I encourage you to read them in the order of their release. You’ll enjoy getting to know all the regulars who appear in this story as it only strengthened and enhanced my enjoyment.It may be cold outside, but The Country Guesthouse by Robyn Carr with its heartwarming tale will keep you toasty by the fire. #SullivansCrossing #NewRelease #MustRead Click To Tweet
