EXCERPT She walked purposefully to her car and she even looked around He was in the garden shed on the other side of the gardens She could hear him putting things away He wasn t looking to see what she was driving or what her license plate was He was a perfectly nice, friendly guy who probably picked up lonely women on a regular basis Then murdered them and chopped them into little pieces and used them for fertilizer She sighed Sometimes she felt so ridiculous ABOUT THIS BOOK From the EXCERPT Sh [...]

    3. I read many books by this author, the Virgin River and Thunder Point series were some of my most favorite by her This time the author writes about two middle age characters that both want to get out of disastrous marriages separately from each other, but coincidently at the same time.I ve always admired the author for picking topics and themes to write about that have meaning, and are relatable.Beau and Lauren matched well, no doubt about that, and I m glad they got their HEA especially after I [...]

    6. free review copy Meh I desperately wanted to like this book, even just because of the cover But alas, NO The nicest thing I can say about it is that I think I ve simply outgrown this insipid and overly explained exhaustively described type of romance women s fiction I probably wouldn t have finished it but I was so sick while reading it that getting up to grab another book wasn t an option The cover is strong, though.


    7. I think I ve finally nailed what I love so much about Robyn Carr s books beyond her skillful writing she doesn t focus entirely on two main characters She writes about family, about other lives and loves that connect and impact the actual leads in the story, but those other loves, the other men and women who populate her books, are as fully drawn and well developed as the primary leadsE VIEW FROM ALAMEDA ISLAND is a perfect example Lauren Delaney is a woman on the edge of a new life when I think [...]
