Series: The Women of Brambleberry House #4
Title: A Soldier’s Return
Author: RaeAnne Thayne
Publisher: Mills and Boon
Published: January 10th, 2019
Single Mum, Melissa Fielding, has returned to her home town seeking stability for them both after wandering the world with her surfer ex-husband. She’s a nurse and loves working in the local clinic with Dr Sanderson but the elderly doctor has to have surgery so there will be someone else there whilst he recuperates. That locum turns out to be his son, Eli, as Meli discovers whilst out running on the beach as the dog she’s running with abruptly stops, tripping Meli up, hurting her wrist, right in front of him. The two were in High School together, though he’s a couple of years older than her, and he’s been an Army medic working in war zones for some years now. As the two start to work together, attraction between them builds but he’s only there to cover for his father so there’s no point in getting to know each other – is there?
This is a delightful, contemporary, second chance, friends to lovers, romance. It is an easy read story, with great characters and relatively angst free plot. It is a story of reconnecting, daring to dream and love – and an adorable daughter, too. There are mysteries involving the other women of Brambleberry House that are alluded to and the ending definitely left me wondering what will happen next in the series. However, even though this is the fourth in the series, I believe it works well as a standalone and I enjoyed reading it. If you’re looking for a light, fun, contemporary romance, I recommend you grab yourself a copy of this relaxing read.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
The Women of Brambleberry House are back!
Returning home to Cannon Beach and living in Brambleberry House had brought Melissa Fielding and her young daughter such joy. Perhaps it was no accident when the single mum “bumped” into Eli Sanderson, and discovered the handsome doctor was also back in town. Is now the time to put old ghosts to rest?
