When one door closes, another one opens.
Maggie Sullivan needs a break. Her practice had to close after her two partners were indicted for medical malpractice. She’s been picking up shifts at the ER in the Denver Hospital but the stress and hours are driving her crazy. A family that lost their teenage son a car accident is now suing her personally. She just had a miscarriage with her longtime boyfriend, who has now decided that he just can’t be who she needs him to be. Needless to say, she needs a break. She loads up her bags and heads across the mountains to the small town of Sullivan’s Crossing where her dad owns the only general store in town. It’s March, so it is nasty weather, but she needs the break. Shortly after her arrival, her dad has a heart attack and she decides to stay and take care of him. Can Maggie find what she is looking for?
This was a fast and exciting read. The story follows Maggie through her troubles and her emotions with trusting men. Although, she initial doesn’t trust Cal, she succumbs pretty quickly to his charms. It’s almost a type of coming of age story for Maggie on finding what she wants instead of what others want her to be. Of course, a book set in the mountains of Colorado is always a fun place to be.
Overall, the story flowed pretty well, but the character transitions didn’t happen smoothly. There wasn’t a method to denote when you suddenly jumped viewpoints until you were halfway into a segment and realized it wasn’t Maggie anymore. Also, there is a lot of sex in this book and some pretty harsh language as well. I would recommend this book to mature readers.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. The views and opinions expressed within are my own.
