What I found most endearing about this book is that beneath all the magic and supernatural occurrences, that this was first and foremost a love story. Willow and Quinn. Two people who haven't seen each other in 15 years, who remember each other from high school but know literally nothing about the other. Quinn is back in the small town of Woodland Creek after serving time in Afghanistan and no one seems to be able to get through to him, not even his closest friends. A chance meeting in Willow's diner sets their story in motion and soon each of their worlds will never be the same.
The gift that Willow has in sensing and seeing color surrounding those in front of her is beautifully described by the author. She'll actually get nauseous if someone is upset or angry or is simply having a tough time. With Quinn, this happens often since he feels so out of sorts. Watching as Willow takes the time to figure out not only what must have happened to him during wartime but why his behavior can be so erratic, had me in knots right along with her. Her power to physically feel the moods of others is meticulously recounted and you're just as anxious to set things right. I loved her dedication and selflessness when it came to now only her magical town but those she holds near.Read more ›
The book sweeps you away and you can't put it down. The author's writing is incredible and takes you on a wonderful romance journey and, if you've read her other books before, she doesn't disappoint you!
Definitely read this book, if you're wanting to read a wonderful romance. Heartstopping, thrilling and ohh so sweet! I absolutely LOVED this book!! I'd give it more stars, if I could!
Willow has spent her life in Woodland Creek. She inherited a diner and the house that went along with it, and now runs it. Her best friend is Ryan, a bear shifter, with the added gift of mind reading, and he is also the diner’s cook. On Willow’s part, she is an empath and can feel peoples emotions and see auras. When her major crush from high school, Quinn, walks into her diner after a fifteen year absence, his emotions and rainbow colored aura, literally makes her sick. He’s home from Afghanistan, his career over due to PTSD, and he’s a war hero. Quinn is a very broken man, a far cry from the popular, fun loving, boy he once was. When he agrees to help Willow with the renovation of her historical home, in order to get it ready for Ryan’s wedding, the two find the friendship that blossomed, but never went anywhere in high school. This time it does, but it’s not without it’s problems.
Willow was the perfect heroine for this well written story. She’s strong willed, smart, ambitious, and has a good heart. She sees Quinn again and immediately wants to help him overcome all his psychological problems-among other things. On Quinn’s part, he was planning on leaving Woodland Creek the day he visited the diner, but didn’t(couldn’t)after meeting Willow again. He knows how broken he is, and he has secrets that even he doesn’t understand.Read more ›
To me, Dearborn is different from Jenni Moen’s other books but that’s how her books are. With The Father was different from the Joy series, and Dearborn is nothing like those books except for the emotion and heart that is put into the writing. That is one similarity throughout all of her books.
Willow is our female lead and I adored her from the start. She seemed so soft and quiet to me until she started bantering with Quin as the story started to heat up. She was never a loud person, but she could stand on her own feet. To me a good word to describe Willow was gentle, she was a gentle soul.
Quin has been through Hell and doesn’t see himself as the hero that the town thought he was (or any other person looking at someone like him would view him as being). Willow can see him differently though, literally seeing him in color, and she is drawn to him. The question from the beginning was would he let her in?
I loved this book so much! When I was done reading I was wishing that I hadn’t read it so quickly or that I could unread it and go back and experience it all over again for the first time.
Another absolutely amazing, heart warming, emotional, tugging at the heart streams book from Jenni.
I have now read 2 books in the Woodland Creek series that I loved! Which one do I buy next? There are so many to choose from.
