Home at Blackberry Hill

Home at Blackberry Hill (Harlequin Heartwarming)Roxanne Rustand
Contemporary Romance

"Arguing with his persistent ten-year-old son was eerily similar to arguing with his ex-wife."

Abby Cahill has every intention of spending the summer in Wisconsin before starting her new teaching job in California in the fall.  The local hospital needs a director for the summer so it seems a perfect fit.  But when she volunteers to watch a young boy while his father is sent off for surgery she may get more than she bargained for.  Especially when a newly adopted dog leaves her homeless.  Ethan Matthews is a stubborn man who lives out in the middle of nowhere.  A sudden injury leaves him less than able to provide a fun summer for his son.  Giving in to his sons pleas to invite Abby to stay with them may placate the boy, but may cause more problems for Ethan.

My Opinion: This book was fun though a bit sporadic.  It went in a few directions that I hadn't expected it to go.  The plot was nice and fun, but didn't get very deeply into backgrounds or emotions. I think there was just so much plot that were wasn't as much room for depth.  Abby is a fun, independent woman.  Ethan is a great dad and a sweet man once you get past his gruff exterior.  I enjoyed this book, though it was a much lighter read, focusing more on the adventure of the outdoors and cruelty to/protection of animals than the actual romance.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.

  1. Sounds like a good down time book. Sometimes I just want something light.
