Facing the past could change his future. 

Veterinarian Neal Rodgers is in Wander Canyon seeking the truth about his past—not to rescue a litter of kittens under his next-door neighbor’s porch. But persistent single-mom Tessa Kennedy is impossible to ignore—especially when she uncovers a family secret of her own. Discovering the hidden facts of their histories could be the key to unlocking everything in this small town.

My Review

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel even though I had not read any of the other books in the Wander Canyon series! I loved the way the relationship developed between Tessa and Neal. It was very realistic in its pacing and they way these two got to know each other as neighbors over the four weeks of the story made a lot of sense.

Both Tessa and Neal were dealing with things that weighed on them emotionally throughout the story. And although Tessa worked hard to be optimistic throughout everything and Neal started out a bit grumpy and emotionally unavailable, they were drawn to each other and helped each other to get through things.

I really enjoyed seeing as Neal’s true character began to shine through. He was definitely a great guy and I wanted only the best for him and Tessa as the story wrapped up. I enjoyed seeing that things would work out for them, yet I also wished there had been a few pages more, with an epilogue to the story to maybe show them a few months to a year in the future.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
