My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is a novel I read for the Harlequin Reader Panel.
Claire is a divorced mother of two living in the small town of Hope’s Crossing, Colorado. And she’s having a bad day. Which leads her to meet/renew acquaintance with the new chief of police, Riley McKnight who she only saw as her best friend’s younger brother while they were growing up. Follow mostly standard romance novel plot line.
The town is well described & written. The community is believable & enjoyable. However to me it fell a little flat. Several plot threads concerning the main hero & many secondary characters ended up just being unresolved & unaddressed at the end of the book.
Overall not one I’d probably pick up initially without the reader panel. Definitely not one I’d reread.
