For Sierra Jones, Sullivan's Crossing is meant to be a brief stopover. She's put her troubled past behind her but the path forward isn't yet clear. A visit with her big brother Cal and his new bride, Maggie, seems to be the best option to help her get back on her feet.

Not wanting to burden or depend on anyone, Sierra is surprised to find the Crossing offers so much more than a place to rest her head. Cal and Maggie welcome her into their busy lives and she quickly finds herself bonding with Sully, the quirky campground owner who is the father figure she's always wanted. But when her past catches up with her, it's a special man and an adorable puppy who give her the strength to face the truth and fight for a brighter future. In Sullivan's Crossing Sierra learns to cherish the family you are given and the family you choose.
 


My Thoughts:
Sierra has come to Sullivan’s Crossing, Colorado to be near her brother Cal and his new wife, Maggie (the couple from the previous book). Sierra has been sober for nine months and is looking for a fresh start somewhere new, somewhere to escape the danger trailing her, as well. That danger is pretty scary once you find out the details! Knowing she’ll get support from Cal if she needs it makes the place all the more attractive. What Sierra doesn’t count on is making friends, and finding love. Yet, that’s exactly what she finds in this beautiful place.

Sierra is a character I immediately bonded with. She was honest with herself, good to the people around her and a hard worker. I liked that she shared her trials when she needed to, didn’t keep the threat of danger to herself, and took the support and help offered. 

Sierra definitely wasn't looking for love, but Conrad, or Connie, turned out to be irresistible. Connie had his own romantic baggage, but he was a big sweetheart to the core; nice and normal, exactly what Sierra needed in a man. The pace of their romance felt just right, filled with heated, lusty kisses at first and then more.

I was thrilled that Tom Canaday got his own romance! The last book I was so ticked at his ex-wife, Becky, (a total piece of work) I yearned for a woman who actually deserved him! Becky needs to take a long walk on a short pier!  Tom centered his life on his kids, made sure he took jobs that gave him time to be there for them, scheduled his whole life around raising them, something Becky couldn’t be bothered with.  His romance with Lola was so sweet and I’m hoping for more in the next installment!

I love Robyn Carr’s writing. This is her second book in the Sullivan’s Crossing series, and I’m quickly warming up to the setting and characters. When Ms. Carr writes a series, the secondary characters and town become familiar and welcoming. I feel like I know these people, and each time I pick up a book it feels like coming home. Sullivan’s Crossing is no different, and I’m happy to get to know everyone a little more with each installment. I’ve had some great times camping, backpacking and hiking, so Sullivan’s Crossing, a campground, general store, watering hole, and starting point at the Continental Divide Trail and Colorado Trail is just the kind of place I’d love to visit!  Loved this story and I can’t wait for the next installment!
