Rating: 3 Cups
Caitlin Mulcahy loves everything about living in Apple Grove, Ohio. Even though most of her time is consumed by her job with her family’s handyman business, she is happy. Feeling a pang of small town goodwill, she stops to help a car pulled over on the side of the road. Instead of car trouble, she helps the new doctor in town rescue a mischievous black puppy.
Jack Gannon is glad to be back home in Apple Grove to take up the reins of his father’s medical practice. The familiar surroundings are a balm to a former Navy medic struggling to deal with his PTSD. When he finds a runaway puppy, he is both pleased and surprised when Caitlin stops to help. Everything about Caitlin speaks to Jack on a level he could have never suspected.
Caitlin loves helping Jack care for the puppy, which they name Jamie. The more time they spend together, the more time they want to spend together. Yet Jack’s past has some truly brutal and crippling events in it. Caitlin knows that it is not going to be easy, but Mulcahy’s never back down, especially not when the love of a lifetime is on the line.
Though some of the small town flavor seems almost too picturesque to be believable, there is no doubt that Apple Grove would be a great place to live. For those readers who enjoy seeing a serviceman find happiness after war, this one will be a treat. Though it is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone.
