Book description
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 that 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.

My thoughts
I enjoyed this new installment in the Sullivan's Crossing series.  It was nice to meet the new characters Leigh and Helen but even better to visit our old friends back at the crossing.  Robyn has a way of writing stories that make you fall in love with the characters first page.  The descriptions of the crossing make me want to pack up and head out there. I like how she puts everyday issues into the story and how they are dealt with. It is just another way that she makes her her stories good to read. We will see what she has in store in the next book.
