Review for The Country Guesthouse by Robyn Carr

The Country Guesthouse (Sullivan's Crossing #5)
by  Robyn Carr 

publication: January 7th 2020 by MIRA

A summer rental, a new beginning…

Hannah Russell’s carefully crafted plans for her life have been upended without warning. When her best friend died suddenly, Hannah became guardian to a five-year-old named Noah. With no experience at motherhood, she’s terrified she’s not up to the challenge. She and Noah need time to get to know each other, so she decides to rent a country house with stunning views on a lake in rural Colorado.

When they arrive at the house, they are greeted by the owner, a handsome man who promises to stay out of their way. But his clumsy Great Dane, Romeo, has other ideas and Noah immediately bonds with the lovable dog. As Hannah learns to become a mother, Owen Abrams, who is recovering from his own grief, can’t help but be drawn out of his solitude by his guests.

But life throws more challenges at this unlikely trio and they are tested in ways they never thought possible. All three will discover their strengths and, despite their differences, they will fight to become a family. And the people of Sullivan’s Crossing will rally around them to offer all of the support they need.

My Thoughts…

I have read many Robyn Carr books but this one is my favorite so far.   I loved the characters, the setting, and most of all the story.    A mother dies leaving her son with her best friend.   The best friend has very little experience with children, but she opens her heart, loves, and protects the little boy.    There was never any doubt that Hannah would become an amazing mother to Noah.   

When Owen comes into the story, I knew where it was headed.    He was amazing with Noah and sweet with Hannah.   The attraction between them was there from the beginning but it was more slow burn.   They took their time, got to know each other, and always kept Noah in the front of the minds.    Everything they did revolved around the happiness and safety of Noah.    The love blossomed and got tested but there was never any real doubt on where it was headed.

While Hannah, Owen, and Noah were the main characters, the townspeople and their friends were just as important to the story and added to the happenings.   Robyn Carr did an amazing job of giving backstories while not making it so winded that you forgot what was important.     I loved seeing how everyone came together to keep this family safe and happy.

The twists and turns in the story were wonderful.   There were many things that I didn’t see coming and I loved how it all came together perfectly.     The Country Guesthouse is a sweet and easy read.   It is the perfect book for someone looking to lose themselves in a cute town, with a sweet boy, and amazing townspeople.
