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 felt Caity physically fantasized about Tom way too much, and some of her long-distance conversations with her best-friend Sarah were boring. There were a few grammatical errors, like “We’ll do it quick” (from an educated doctor) and “between Tom and I.” I bought the book, because the tag at the bottom of the amazon page said “clean and wholesome.” I know people’s definition of this differs, but it did not fit this category in my opinion. There were about twenty-some curse words, enough to be noticeable. Caity had sex on a first date and he spent the night with her several times thereafter. The book seemed to assume that dating meant sleeping together, although nothing is described. There were also some phrases that were a turn-off for me. Here are some examples: “she’d like to jump his bones,” “Suck it and see,” “Hay, yes…good for horses… and rolling around in too,” and “the universe was testing her resolve.” The main characters also drank way too much, especially Caity, who got drunk enough she couldn’t drive and lost all inhibitions.
Despite the problems, I found the developing relationship interesting and the characters likable. However, they were often so awkward around each other, had so many misunderstandings, and kept second guessing each other that even I became uncomfortable at times. It may have been a bit better than three stars, but I couldn’t see giving it four, considering how much I found wrong.
Caity Jones left a dead-end relationship and a job she detested to move to a small parcel of land in the rural town of Willows - along with her prized horse. Tom Murray is the feed store owner that she buys livestock feed from and a man Caity would like to know better. But Tom, Caity discover, has had his share of heart-ache in the relationship department as well. Caity has never been married, but would love to be one day. Tom's wife left him and their children to reunite with her high school sweetheart, leaving Tom and the children devastated. Caity likes Tom and his children, but is concerned that his heart in now unavailable. Tom likes Caity, but does not want to get hurt again.
Can these two friends become more than just acquaintances and let a second chance at love sweep them each off of their feet? No spoilers here - you have to read the book to find out.
I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet romance story of two damaged souls looking for a better life and finding one another along the way. I would recommend it to those who like clean romance stories that have happy endings.
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!
