I read occasional romance novels, and this is one of the better ones. It has some fine literary qualities and I was reminded of books like "Rebecca" by Daphne du Maurier as both books delve into the psychological and emotional elements of the characters.
Well developed characters with solid backstories.
Solid plot with some twists and turns.
Good emotional engagement with me, the reader.
The children were interesting as secondary characters, and I would have liked to read more about them and their ongoing interactions with Cait, their dad, and their estranged mom. Unfortunately, those angles were not as well developed as the main story line.
A very minor point, but I got a bit mixed up when a pet and a character had the same name. That was quickly corrected, so no worries.
Otherwise a well written and fun story.
My grade a solid A novel.
I especially liked the Australian setting, and although I've never been there, it certainly felt authentic (I loved the references to Australian Rules Football!).
The story is straightforward: after a bad breakup, Caity moves out of the city to a tiny town to begin a new life. She isn't looking for a man, but she finds one anyway - Tom, a single father who was burned himself in his last relationship. The two have an immediate connection, but they'll have to overcome their own fears in order to have a chance together.
I'd definitely recommend this book!
Caity just gave up her job and her home and moved to the little town of Willows (Australia) to become a full-time writer, away from distractions, esp. men. But a trip into town brought her into the orbit of Tom and his three children. Tom's marriage was a failure, but his family ties are strong. And he wanted no complications, not with three kids requiring his full attention. When the Tom and Caity met... well, neither was prepared to accept what they felt for each other...
As I said, the tale is sweet, but there really wasn't anything I haven't seen before. It's a competent romance with no issues but nothing outstanding either.
Caity, the main character, moves to the country to become a writer and also to try and forget about her ex. She meets Tom and the story of their relationship unfolds at just the right place. He has a past which causes tension and both of them struggle with their personal feelings and emotions.
The writing is clear and concise. The setting is well-developed, and the characters seem like they could easily be real people.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a feel-good read. There is no graphic sex or bad language and it's appropriate for all ages. Nicely done!
Caity is looking for peace, after a bad relationship. A time to "write" although she isn't necessarily a writer per se. She has a horse & needs feed for same.
Tom, owner of a feed store, is just looking to take care of 3 children he's raising without the benefit of their mother. He has a father who helps him with children as needed. His ex-wife left, no discussion, no goodbyes to children, no nothing, leaving Tom certainly with a bad taste for marriage let alone a relationship of any kind.
Were the above words enough to tell about this book, but there's so much more to it; truly some in depth life situations addressed in a round about way. Women with postpartum depression. Domestic abuse. When a man "pushes" sex through violence, is it rape? It's all here, right in the midst of the normal man meets woman & they fall in love scenario. You have to read it to appreciate it. Well written..Enjoy.
