Synopsis:

With his smooth talk, rugged good looks, and deep pockets, native Texan Boone McBride appears to be a man who has it all. Few people know about the heartbreak behind his decision to leave home, family, and career for the isolation of a small town in the Colorado Rockies. Luckily, time and life in Eternity Springs has worked its healing magic upon his wounded soul, so when he meets obviously troubled Hannah Dupree, Boone sees a chance to pay his good fortune forward. The last thing he anticipates is tumbling into love.

Tragedy has taken everything Hannah loves, and her will to keep going is failing. So when Boone strides into her life determined to save her, it’s easier to go along with him than to resist. Soon she is drawn into the fabric of life in Eternity Springs, and as her spirit begins to heal, her strength returns, and she’s able to go toe-to-toe with this hardheaded, big-hearted Texan. But just when love blooms and happiness is within their grasp, shadows from the past threaten. Hannah and Boone must stand strong and united in order to defeat old ghosts—if they are to create a brand-new life together.

My Review:

This is an emotive read, a story of love after tragedy, of heartbreak, grief, healing and romance in a delightful supportive community.

Hannah Dupree is on a journey away from tragedy. She has no real goal, except to escape the memories and grief and has been travelling now for three years. When she sees the names of locations around Eternity Springs, she heads in that direction. A detour takes her to an infamous lookout spot and when Boone McBride sees her near the edge he fears she’s about to leap. He’s been encouraged to be the light in someone’s life and suspects that he needs to help Hannah. As the two get to know each other, they need to share their tragic pasts to help them both move on to a happier future and the community of Eternity Springs all rally round to help them both!

What a lovely, heartwarming story this proved to be. I love the community of Eternity Springs, which has some fabulous characters who help others heal in some way of another. There’s a real sense of family, love, romance and healing in this inspirational story.

Thanks to St Martin’s Press and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
