Title: The Best Of Us

Rating: 4/5 

This is a heartwarming small community romantic drama involving three different generations of couples. It is the fourth book in the series but works well as a standalone in my opinion, though it has tempted me to read more books in the series in future.

The main ones are Dr Leigh Culver who has moved to Timberlake, Colorado working as a GP and in the drop in emergency clinic. She’s loving the change of pace but misses her Aunt Helen, the lady who raised her after her mother’s untimely death. At the clinic she treats Finn, a teenager who has badly cut his hand. Finn had been brought in by his Dad, Rob, who faints during his son’s treatment. After this inauspicious beginning, attraction and love grows between the two but there are many obstacles in the path of true love for this pair! One of those obstacles is actually the relationship of Finn and his girlfriend, though not through any fault of their own. When Leigh’s aunt, Helen Culver comes to stay with Leigh, Little did she expect to find romance! As the three romances develop there are plenty of dramatic incidents, many unexpected surprises and a heartwarming special surprise meal to help one of the romances!

The story has a great community feel to it, with a wide range of characters and relationships that are well portrayed so it feels like your part of the community, witnessing events and reacting to them. I especially loved feisty Helen and Sullivan – thank goodness her honesty helps sort everything out in the end!

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley. I chose to read it and this is my honest review after doing so.


In Sullivan’s Crossing, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr has created a place where good people, powerful emotions, great humor and a healthy dose of common sense are the key ingredients to a happy life. Sullivan’s Crossing brings out the best in people. It’s a place you’ll want to visit again and again.

Dr. Leigh Culver loves practicing medicine in Timberlake, Colorado. It is a much-needed change of pace from her stressful life in Chicago. The only drawback is she misses her aunt Helen, the woman who raised her. But it’s time that Leigh has her independence, and she hopes the beauty of the Colorado wilderness will entice her aunt to visit often.

Helen Culver is an independent woman who lovingly raised her sister’s orphaned child. Now, with Leigh grown, it’s time for her to live life for herself. The retired teacher has become a successful mystery writer who loves to travel and intends to never experience winter again.

When Helen visits Leigh, she is surprised to find her niece still needs her, especially when it comes to sorting out her love life. But the biggest surprise comes when Leigh takes Helen out to Sullivan’s Crossing and Helen finds herself falling for the place and one special person. Helen and Leigh will each have to decide if they can open themselves up to love neither expected to find and seize the opportunity to live their best lives.

    Sounds like a good one. I have been looking at the Sullivan Series for awhile now. I might have to take the plunge.

        I know what you mean. I have heard great things about the Sullivan Series, but I believe it has quite a few backlisted.
