About the Book:

#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr delivers an emotional and triumphant novel about the fierce power of a mother’s love.

A summer rental, a new beginning…

Hannah Russell’s carefully crafted plans for her life have been upended without warning. When her best friend died suddenly, Hannah became guardian to a five-year-old named Noah. With no experience at motherhood, she’s terrified she’s not up to the challenge. She and Noah need time to get to know each other, so she decides to rent a country house with stunning views on a lake in rural Colorado.

When they arrive at the house, they are greeted by the owner, a handsome man who promises to stay out of their way. But his clumsy Great Dane, Romeo, has other ideas and Noah immediately bonds with the lovable dog. As Hannah learns to become a mother, Owen Abrams, who is recovering from his own grief, can’t help but be drawn out of his solitude by his guests.

But life throws more challenges at this unlikely trio and they are tested in ways they never thought possible. All three will discover their strengths and, despite their differences, they will fight to become a family. And the people of Sullivan’s Crossing will rally around them to offer all of the support they need.

My Review:
Gotta say... I was thrilled when I was contacted by Robyn Carr's publicist to read and review her latest book, due to be released on January 7th.

THE COUNTRY GUESTHOUSE is Book #5 in the Sullivan's Crossing series, but it can certainly be read as a stand-alone.  Reading the previous books in this series, however, may enhance your enjoyment because many of our favorite characters are brought back to life.

It seems like each time I read one of Robyn Carr's novels, it becomes my favorite.  Not sure if that's because her writing just keeps getting better and better or if the emotions are so fresh in my mind from the latest book.  Whatever it is, I absolutely LOVED this book!  I cried (real tears streaming down my cheeks!), I smiled and I got those wonderful tingles that happen when you read the romance as it develops between Hannah and Owen.  Ohmigosh!  I loved Owen!  He's not the hunky, muscular, sexy type, but in my opinion he is the perfect man.  There was so much emotion in this book!  The sadness over the death of Hannah's best friend, meeting the sweet and personable Noah, seeing Noah's joy as he meets Romeo... I could go on and on but I don't want to give away any spoilers.

Pssst.... Just to let you know, Robyn Carr's Virgin River series, Season 1, is currently available on Netflix!  I binge-watched it and now I can't wait for the next season!!
