"With this tale of the soothing splendor of the land and our vulnerability, Carr sets the bar for contemporary romance. The well-paced plot, engaging and well-defined characters, and an inviting setting make Carr's latest an enhancement not only to the romance shelves but to any fiction collection."
–Booklist, starred review, on What We Find
"Robyn Carr has done it again... What We Find is complex, inspirational, and well-written. A romance that truly inspires readers as life hits them the hardest."
-San Francisco Review Journal
"Insightfully realized central figures, a strong supporting cast, family issues, and uncommon emotional complexity make this uplifting story a heart-grabber that won't let readers go until the very end.... A rewarding (happy) story that will appeal across the board and might require a hanky or two." -Library Journal, starred review on What We Find
"A layered, well-paced plot and flawed, three-dimensional characters whom readers will care about make this a quick and entertaining read for those who relish contemporary family sagas with strong female characters as well as readers who like their stories tinged with romance." -Library Journal on The Life She Wants

...Maggie Sullivan is a neurosurgeon whose professional and personal lives are falling apart simultaneously. Finding her weeping in the stairwell at the hospital, a good friend and fellow doctor suggests she get away for awhile. Maggie packs her bags and heads for her father's home, which is a campground and general store near Aurora, Colorado. There she meets--and immediately is suspicious of--Cal Jones, a seeming drifter who has been helping out while camping and waiting for weather conditions to be more favorable to start a long hike on a famous trail. Unbeknownst to everyone, Cal is also running away from complicated problems.
Of course, Maggie and Cal are destined for romance. Some readers not only enjoy racy sex scenes, but expect them in a romance novel. Other readers avoid books that include them. If you're among the latter group, be forewarned that "What We Find" by Robyn Carr has very explicit and steamy sections tucked into its chapters. SPOILER ALERT: When the couple first tumbles into bed, I found myself wondering how a character who's supposed to be very intelligent could so quickly become intimate with a man whose real name she doesn't even know... let alone his history. It seemed kind of foolish. Initially, they're just friends with benefits. Then, predictably, he goes off on his long hike and Maggie isn't sure when or if Cal will return. They'll both have to recreate their lives and professions to be together, but at this point Maggie doesn't even know what profession he's in or any of his history. Not a terrific start. I wanted someone to shake her. Hard.
Don't get me wrong. There are several good elements to the novel. Yet there were places where I groaned, closed the book and took a break from it. Especially where Cal's parents were involved. Fans of Robyn Carr will NOT appreciate my take on "What We Find"... I sincerely apologize and intend no offense to the writer, publisher or those who love her novels. Every reader has individual tastes. A few of my friends would probably rate this 4 or 5 stars. I think "What We Find" is okay... maybe some light reading for a trip to the beach. You could love it. I hope you do.
I especially loved the growth in both Cal and Maggie as they grew confident in themselves, their professional needs and their history. The difficulty of overcoming the past pain and feelings of inadequacy is well presented, as is an understanding of people with mental illness and possibilities of how to deal with its problems.
Thank you and keep up the good work your books are great.

Good character, plot, not too mushy just enough to be real. I want to live at Sully's!
