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.
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!
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!
