    Sensitive and Intelligient

    Pardon me while I dine on a healthy dose of crow. Normally, (and I've never hidden the fact) I dislike the "I'm in love with my brother-in-law" trope. And yet...Sydell Voeller did the impossible. She made me love her characters and believe they belonged together. It's a testament to the emotional pull she created that I couldn't stop turning pages. Joanna is a plucky heroine in a tough situation: her firefighter husband, Kyle, died saving kids from a fire. She's now moved to a small town in the Pacific Northwest to rebuild her life and create a new normal. Enter Kyle's brother, Austin, who made a promise to his brother he's intent on keeping, despite the difficulty of being in close proximity to Jo. The author makes these two work hard for their HEA and there's an underlying reminder to the reader about the fragility of nature and mankind's often senseless destruction. A wonderful love story, told with sensitivity and intelligence

    Believable Story Line

    I enjoyed this book so much I finished it in one day. A story of two people trying to over come the grief of losing someone they loved. At the same time it also addresses some environmental concerns of how our throw away lifestyle is harming so many animals. Between their own healing, and helping those around them I wondered if they would ever recognize what they had done for each other and if they would go on from there. It is a great story, one that I can see myself revisiting in the future.

    Starting Over

    Joanna Sullivan's was deeply in love with her husband, Kyle, a firefighter. When he was killed, while trying to rescue some children from a burning house, Joanna is heartbroken. To try to get through her grief she makes a desperate attempt to start over and moves to a new town, finds a new job, and attempts to refurbish a dilapidated duplex one year after the tragedy. Then, Austin, her husband's brother, shows up and offers to stay and help her with the much needed repairs. At first Austin looks so much like his brother, Joanna is pulled back to memories of Kyle, but soon Austin emerges as his own man, a man she is falling in love with. When she learns Austin had promised Kyle he would look after her if anything happened, Joanna realizes she is just an obligation to Austin.
