the previous books and for him to fall for Helen was so wonderful Their banter was hilarious and while it was inevitable that the two would have strong feelings for each other, the two characters maintained their independence while being respectful to each other The pace of the book is perfect as you enjoy the development of each character and can t help falling in love with them I love this

on the porch at Sullivan s Crossing with Sully, the owner of the campsite and store No one writes small town fiction like Carr I know when I begin one of her books it s going to be so satisfying and this one is no exception This story doesn t have lots of drama or one big moment, like lots of interesting, heartwarming and sometimes challenging moments and events chronicling the natural evolution of two relationships Interwoven in their romances are real life events that help you and the characters learn so much about them Leigh and Rob s romance was just lovely and I enjoyed how they worked through issues, even when they faced a pretty huge hurdle Helen s relationship with Sully was quite a surprise and I loved having a senior romance featured so prominently and not as a minor secondary storyline They had their own considerations, issues and obstacles Obviously I loved this story for all the reasons already outlined The strong sense of community and the extended family members from previous stories helped make this an exceptional reading experience The characters are well designed and authentic, people you can imagine knowing and wanting to have as friends It was great being

until after the fact which is a testament to this series along with Carr s writing Although I can t speak for her other books, The Best of Us works perfectly as a standalone novelbut of course I will

in The Best of Us, readers get the pleasure of following two romances, the primary one involving Leigh and the secondary one involving Sully Leigh is highly independent and is not looking for a relationship, so when she meets Rob who is also looking for something casual, it s the perfect non relationship But circumstances require them to revisit their commitment status which leads to surprising complexity given their significant histories of loss Sully and Leigh s Aunt Helen create a light hearted romance that is fun to watch Helen raised Leigh after her mother s death and Helen is visiting for an undetermined amount of time as she escapes the snowstorms of the midwest Additional relationship dynamics explored include Leigh and her aunt as they must confront expectation and boundary issues and no, it s not Leigh doing the confronting , and Rob s son Finn as a crisis involving his girlfriend eerily mirrors Rob s own traumatizing heartbreak As you can tell, there is a lot going on in this book, but as a reader new to this series, I was able to follow along easily which again speaks to Carr s writing I especially enjoyed coming across all the quotes that prepare readers for the following chapter I found The Best of Us to be engaging, emotional, complex, sexy, fun and filled with gorgeous Colorado settings that become characters in their own right I m looking forward to the next bookand all the ones that came before Check it out.My favorite quote When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to

Chicago Leigh comes with some emotional baggage She has never quite gotten over her first love She threw herself into medical school and her best friend is her beloved Aunt Helen who raised her All that is about to change when Rob, the local pub owner and widowed father of teenage boys challenges her to explore love again.Readers are treated to a second romance when Aunt Helen relocates to Timberlake for the summer and finds the perfect place to write on Sully s front porch It delighted me to see Sully get his own romance after all everyone deserves love and companionship This was a fun courtship and Carr made me laugh from talks of pajamas to long walks.Drama came in the form of a surprise and while not my favorite plot but it was executed flawlessly The story offered tender moments from Rob s sons to powerful growth and acknowledgement of the sacrifices parental figures make for the children they love I am not at all sure if this was the last book, but I would gladly visit

love a good romance and often a well written romance is such a refreshing break from real life when you get home and dinner still needs to be made and the baby is crying and your husband is late from work Those are the times that a good romance are especially welcoming which is why I think I see her books as well as others at the supermarket checkout stand or end cap display.People want to believe in romance and something thats different from the day to day This last month I ve been slowly but surely making my way though a lengthy, heavy novel Fire and Blood and to e honest, I desperately needed a break from the carnage that is Westerosi history I intentionally scheduled this book on my review calendar for this reason I should have been done with Fire and Blood before Christmas so I could start this one and I knew I would need a break something relaxing and romantic I m not done with Fire and Blood yet, but I took a break from the tedious history and welcomed in the new year with this wonderfully written novel about romance that would warm my heart.I read the third book in this series back in April and while I thought it was a great read, there were clearly references to other plots and characters from other books in the series and I continued to see that in this book It wasn t awful or confusing, but it is noticeable and if you want to enjoy all the plot nuances then I would recommend starting with the first book in this series They are quick reads so it shouldn t take you too long if that s your thing, but overall as a new reader to this series, I wasn t completely lost, but I could tell I was missing out on other pieces of the larger story.For example, Rob was introduced in the third book, so readers of the larger series will already know him and be familiar with him Where as newer readers are meeting him for the first time So that s the kind of thing you might expect if you are new to the series It s not critical to read the others but be aware that there are things that you will enjoy if you are familiar with the others.This romance was so sweet and was everything that I would expect in a happily ever after Rob was everything I would hope for in a love interest He was sweet, a stand up guy, and knows who he is I like that he wasn t all moody and unsure of what he wanted When he meets Leigh, it s comical, endearing, and charming I loved it I loved how the characters in the book helped Leigh work through her issues There were times when I was annoyed with her but on the whole I felt that she was a solid heroine but for me Rob stole the show and my heart.Carr is clearly a practiced and seasoned writer It shows in her ability to discern what is important to the plot She uses humor in her novels but it isn t distracting I can see why so many people love her books You are getting what you are promised quality writing, well developed characters, a charming romance, and a happily ever after.See my full review here flag 4 likesLike

is the sweet read The way the relationship blooms between the two characters, the way they interact, is all kinds of adorable I was sucked into their story, and even when the drama started I found the things happening were cuteness than angst There were some heavy emotions in their story, but the majority of the heavy emotions were found in the side stories we were told throughout In addition to the main romance, we have two other blooming love stories One of which deals with a heavy topic, will have you dealing with all kinds of emotions.It s certainly a book that hooks you on numerous

The two women have always been close, but have lived their own lives, or so Helen thought She finds that Leigh is going to need her than she thought.Leigh becomes involved with Rob Shandon, who is the

relationship is building between Helen and Sully, who owns Sullivan s Crossing camp ground The two are opposites apart, but their blossoming friendship, like her niece and Rob is something of a

Sullivan s Crossing There were a few, ok than a few times this book had me grabbing for a tissue and at the same time making me smile and laugh Robyn Carr really know how to get to the heart of her

More that the stories hit some similar beats, and that the issues that led to the situation Maggie finds herself in at the beginning of What We Find have parallels with rather different outcomes in The Best Of Us.Also that Maggie s father Sully, who all of the residents of the Crossing and the nearby town of Timberlake love, finally gets his own romance in addition to the central love story between the 30somethings that this series has featured so far.Unlike the Jones siblings featured in the first three books of this series, Leigh Culver comes to Timberlake with a purpose She has come to take over the urgent care clinic in town Well, that s her job Her personal purpose is to finally live on her own after spending the first 34 years of her life living with her Aunt Helen, the woman who raised her.As part of that living on her own, Leigh is also in Timberlake to actually get a life not that she would see it that way She went through high school intending to marry the boy next door, and when he left her at the altar she threw herself into her studies, not just college but also medical school, an internship, a residency and ultimately a practice as both an ER doctor in a major Chicago hospital and a private family practice.She s been part of the rat race for too long, and as much as she loves her work, it hasn t left her time for a life outside of it So she comes to Timberlake, where she has a practice that keeps her busy but not insanely so, makes friends and has time to look around her and see what she wants to do next.What she sees is her neighbor Rob Shanahan, a single father of two nearly grown up boys One of whom lands in her clinic after slicing his hand open at Rob s pub In the process of treating Finn s cut and Rob s fainting spell, he manages to ask her out She thinks he s delirious and he kind of was but he s serious about the date.And once they ve finally figured out that what they have is than a fainting spell and some truly amazing chemistry, they can t keep their hands off each other No matter how difficult it is to find some private time between his boys and her Aunt Helen coming to Timberlake for a long visit.Not that Helen doesn t find plenty of ways to keep herself busy She s a very successful mystery writer, and the Crossing turns out to be the perfect place to write away an afternoon That she finds herself amused and entranced by Sully is definitely a surprising but lovely added benefit.It all seems too good to be true, until things start to go pear shaped, at least for Rob and Leigh Neither of them has wanted to talk about love Rob s wife died when the boys were babies, and he hasn t been looking for love since then he hasn t had time either Leigh has resigned herself to being alone like her Aunt She may have gotten over loving that boy next door who abandoned her, but she s never recovered from the betrayal.When Leigh discovers that the birth control implant she thought still had a couple of years to run had in fact expired a couple of years before, there are suddenly a lot of decisions to make, and a lot of acknowledgements to figure out before that hot spark gets smothered.Escape Rating B There were three things I really, really loved about this story, and one that personally drove me bananas although I realize that this is one of my quirks and other people will love it.First, I love this place The Crossing and Timberlake have turned out to be yet another of this author s lovely, friendly, liveable communities, filled with marvelous scenery and absolutely terrific people I ve sincerely enjoyed every single visit, and hope there are lots It s a place that I think anyone would love to live in.Second, I really got into the romance between Leigh and Rob They are terrific people, and it was fun to get to know them and their families I enjoyed the way that, while Leigh had been in town for several months, there hadn t been a reason for them to really get to know each other until his son s accident And that they both discover themselves unexpectedly all in to a relationship that neither expected.Their difficulties in managing to get time alone were priceless.Third, I very much enjoyed Sully and Helen s relationship Falling in love, including a sexual relationship, is not a need that gets turned off at some age These are two really interesting people who actually don t have much in common but their joy in life But they also have perspective and experience and each gives the other something that they lack And they make each other laugh The way that they tentatively reach towards romance and their clear happiness when it is reciprocated is marvelous.That Leigh is completely thrown for a loop that her Aunt and Sully have fallen in love with each other was well done I ve always said that the two things that no one wants to think about are their parents having sex and their children having sex We all know that it happens, but our minds don t want to go there Leigh s reactions when forced to go there were very real, as is Helen s joy and happiness.However, the part of the story I wish hadn t happened was Leigh s unplanned pregnancy Early in their relationship, Rob and Leigh had agreed that neither of them wanted children or in Rob s case children While the tension of how to resolve the situation once the choice had been taken from them provided realistic conflict in the story it s just not a plot device I personally care for.That does not mean it wasn t well done in this instance, because like all of the stories in this series so far, it certainly was But that plot thread just isn t my cup of tea.Which does not mean that I didn t love the rest of the story, because I certainly did It also doesn t mean that I won t be thrilled to return to Sullivan s Crossing at the next available opportunity because I most definitely will flag 1 likeLike see review Oct 22, 2018 Donna Hines rated it it was amazing review of another edition

to be fair, I am joining the series a few books in by the end of it I was was completely drawn in by the characters and the coziness of the setting I have to say though, the BEST part of this book was the budding relationship between 60 something Helen and 70 something Sully They have such an adorable relationship and I love the development of this unexpected late in life romance The main plot follows Dr Leigh Carver as she moves from Chicago to the small town of Timberlake to begin working in an urgent care center Having never had a serious relationship, she is surprised when sparks fly with Rob Shandon, a widowed father of teen boys who owns the local pub Other plot threads include the relationship between Rob s oldest son and his girlfriend as she faces some serious medical issues, and the aforementioned winter romance between Leigh s Aunt Helen and town fixture Sully This is a sweet and beautifully woven story that contrasts love at different times of life and handles the impact of trauma and PTSD in nuanced ways I also appreciated the largely progressive depictions of gender roles in terms of active and capable fathers as parents and women successfully managing fulfilling careers alongside family Overall, this book ended up being a very pleasant surprise It took about 60 pages or so for me to really feel like I was connecting with the characters, so a bit slow to start but with a very strong conclusion It s a relatively minor issue, but in the early part of the book I was a little annoyed with all the female characters talking on multiple occasions about what things they shouldn t eat if they want to keep their figures and the fact that all the female leads are described as being quite slim and in good shape as if that is the only way to be physically attractive A bit of body diversity, especially in a book celebrating romance at all ages, would have been nice However, I would read from this author in the future and would recommend her

Crossing, the campground owned by Sully, is a charming place Sully, a 72 year old, is my favourite character He s smart, gentle, kind, and funny I haven t read any of the other books in the series and had no idea it was part of a series when I requested the ARC on Netgalley , but I would like to read stories by Carr if they take place at Sullivan s Crossing.There were many little things that made this story feel very dated 1 Referring to salad and diet coke as girl food 2 doesn t look like he could ve been the kind of kid to get picked on because the kid was good looking.3 Why in the world

to make them lovable, imho I loved Leigh s and Rob s story I thought Leigh needed a kick in the pants sometimes, but she s really a good person Rob is adorable, especially when he has to fess up to his sons about an oops Pretty funny Their story, and that of Rob s family, really touched me For me, he came across as lovable than Leigh but if her personality was any different, it wouldn t make a good read.Helen and Sully s story is a hoot I love that they are older and have a love story of their own Sully is a character in all the books, of course, and he is a wily old codger I absolutely adore him The conversations he has with Helen are hilarious She is an author, one who concocts murder and mayhem in her books, and the banter is often hilarious I guess most spouses S.O s of writers
