Summary

Dr. Leigh Culver loves practicing medicine in Timberlake, Colorado. It is a much-needed change of pace from her stressful life in Chicago. The only drawback is she misses her Aunt Helen, the woman who raised her. But it’s time Leigh has her independence, and she hopes the beauty of the Colorado wilderness will entice her aunt to visit often.  

Helen Culver is an independent woman who lovingly raised her sister’s orphaned child. Now, with Leigh grown, it’s time for her to live life for herself. The retired teacher has become a successful mystery writer who loves to travel and intends to never experience winter again.  

When Helen visits Leigh, she is surprised to find her niece still needs her, especially when it comes to sorting out her love life. But the biggest surprise comes when Leigh takes Helen out to Sullivan’s Crossing and Helen finds herself falling for the place and one special person. 

Helen and Leigh will each have to decide if they can open themselves up to love neither expected to find and seize the opportunity to live their best lives.

I really hope this isn't the last book of this series. It was such a treat to spend a few days in this small town with Robyn Carr. This book wasn't as awesome and the last but I still enjoyed it very much! I love knowing everyone gets a happy ending. One of my favorite things about this author is that she tells everyone's story no matter if they are young or old, they all get happy endings

The same pregnancy story

I am not sure why Robyn Carr's books have some poor women or girl
getting pregnant in every story. It seems to be an obsession. The story lines are great except for that !

Narrator

I always like the books Therese Plummer narrates but she like other narrators mispronounce the word “realtor” as “relator.”
Could someone please address this problem. It’s hard to believe it continues to be mispronounced so often by narrators.

nothing happens

There was no real plot to this story, nor was there any one character that evoked any kind of feeling. I think it's time to shut this series down. It was good in the beginning but it gets weaker with every new story.

What a Story!!! What Fantastic Charters! What a great reader!

I have to say, I have read almost all of Robyn Carr’s books, but this is the BEST! I loved the characters!! I loved the story!! I loved the entire book! This story takes you into such fantastic lives of the most authentic real life characters. It gives you everyday life situations that you can throughly relate to and teaches you about life and how to handle life. I so enjoy Sulley; his wit, his dry humor, his outlook on everyday life. Then there is Helen; what a beautiful witty outstanding lady who knows how to live life to the fullest! Lee is magnificent and smart; Rob is a dream come true! The total mix of these characters make a storyline that is so fun of fun and surprises; the laughs, the tears and the descriptions of making love at all ages; you just can’t get enough of this story. I have read it twice and now I’m going to read it again! Thank you Robyn Carr for such intriguing life’s of every day people! You make readers want to live life to the fullest!

The Best of Us

Dr. Lee Culbert wanted to sit on Sully‘s porch. Lee worked in family medicine and emergency medicine. Her mother died when Lee was four, so she visited Timberlake. Lee was 34 years old. Aunt Helen was having a snowstorm in Chicago. Aunt Helen is age 62. One of the doctors was Dr. Hawkins, and Bill Dodd. Johnny and Lee were best friends since age 3. Johnny abandoned a week before their wedding. Johnny dated all through high school, although he dated other girls as well. Flint said that dad hit on Dr. Culvert. Flint cut his hand on the dishwasher and Dr. Culvert stitched Flint’s hand. Rob heard the bells and birds chirping. Rob said “I think we should just get married! You keep doing that and I want to take you home with me. Connie Boyle married Sierra, came in to Dr. Culvert‘s office and she was in labor, back labor. So, Dr. Culvert delivered the baby. She complained that lifting Sam, their little adopted son caused pain. Maggie operated on Maya for 10 hours. Lee Culvert became pregnant by Rob. Helen moved out of Lee’s house. They found one house but it was way too big. The house they found was just a couple of years old Claudia found it for Lee it is a nice home with four bedrooms a patio and a small guest house it’s a little isolated but about 15 minutes out of town. And Rob and Lee can share the loft. So they took Flint to Boulder to enroll his college. Lee said we have to get married find a house and have a baby. At Christmas time they had Cal, Maggie, Connie, Sid, Rob, Lee and the boys, Dakota, all the little ones, Connie’s Mother and brother. There was so much food, neither Helen or Lee never had so much family. They took lead to the hospital and Aurora to have her baby. She has a beautiful baby girl! She tried to wait on Helen but the baby came quick. Helen said this is just like finding home.
