Rating: 5 Cups
The solitude of Eagle’s Way is exactly what Gabe Callahan was hoping for. No family, no friends, and no neighbors he needs to hide from or lie to and remote enough to do what he needs to do.
Eternity Springs is a balm to her battered heart, but Dr. Nicole Sullivan does not look forward to the coming winter. Her beautiful little town, tucked away in the mountains, is struggling financially, and it may not be long before they are all forced to hang the closed sign and walk away.
One moment is all it will take to relieve the agony of the last year, but instead Gabe finds himself planted face first in the snow by a scrawny goofy looking boxer pup and getting drug back into the world of the living. His bloody shredded heart gives an unlikely and unwanted shudder upon meeting Nic for the first time, but her sparkle and vitality are hard to ignore. Being a vet, Nic often deals with hurt and wounded animals, but with Gabe, her reflexes are completely blown, and she faces injury that will be more than skin deep. To love this man would be so easy, but does she dare take that risk when there is much more at stake than just her heart?
The male psyche is laid bare by Emily March, who is so in tune with her character’s feelings that it physically hurts to read his struggle. She opens him up one layer at a time, and at each reveal he is entrenched deeper into your heart. Nic’s character is just a poignant, but I am so much more impressed that this story does not take the easy way out by focusing solely on her. Book one is a testament to the power of kindness, support, and yes, love, but that love is only built through a foundation of many selfless and caring friends.
