Blog Tour: Any Day Now (Sullivan's Crossing #2) by Robyn Carr | Book Review

Goodreads Summary: 

The highly anticipated sequel to #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr's What We Find transports readers back to Sullivan's Crossing. The rustic campground at the crossroads of the Colorado and Continental Divide trails welcomes everyone—whether you're looking for a relaxing weekend getaway or a whole new lease on life. It's a wonderful place where good people face their challenges with humor, strength and love. 

For Sierra Jones, Sullivan's Crossing is meant to be a brief stopover. She's put her troubled past behind her but the path forward isn't yet clear. A visit with her big brother Cal and his new bride, Maggie, seems to be the best option to help her get back on her feet. 

Not wanting to burden or depend on anyone, Sierra is surprised to find the Crossing offers so much more than a place to rest her head. Cal and Maggie welcome her into their busy lives and she quickly finds herself bonding with Sully, the quirky campground owner who is the father figure she's always wanted. But when her past catches up with her, it's a special man and an adorable puppy who give her the strength to face the truth and fight for a brighter future. In Sullivan's Crossing Sierra learns to cherish the family you are given and the family you choose.


My Rating - 3.5 stars!

My Review:

Any Day Now is the second installment of Sullivan's Crossing and its a story of Cal's sister, Sierra Jones. I haven't read the first book, which is Cal's book, but after reading this book I want to read and know his story for sure.

Sierra Jones has come to Sullivan's Crossing to stay and get reconnected with her brother Cal and meet his wife Maggie, also to run away from her past problems but little did she know that it would become her home. She is very determined to be independent by not leaning on anybody for help. She is an alcoholic but is 9 months sober and wants to maintain that and move forward. She then meets Sully, Maddie's father and he immediately takes her under his wing and is a very nice father figure for her. I really loved their part. Soon she meets swoon-worthy Conrad(Connie) and she is enthralled by him. Then Molly, a golden retriever, whom she rescues from her abusive owner. 

Sierra was a very strong-willed character with vulnerabilities in sight. It was very unique how a character can be so strong but had weaknesses too and that just made it more realistic. She was hurt badly in the past, hence she wasn't able to trust people and let go but you see in this book how she grows and finally accepts people around to be her family, not just Cal but with Sully, Connie and Maggie too. She fights her past very heroically too. 

Conrad is a firefighter, a paramedic and a search and rescue volunteer. He has his fair share of troubled past but he was really very sweet and supportive of Sierra. He was a very nice and perfect addition to Sierra's and Molly's life. I loved how they started out, everything was cute. But I would have liked to read more parts of him. I was a little unsatisfied with his pov, I wanted more.

You also get a cute side story of Tom and Lola. Also, you get a lot of Cal, Sully, Maggie, Connie, everyone was very nice and I loved to read about them. Loved the storyline, it covered a lot of abusive parts and a lot of romantic parts with a perfect ending. A great short and sweet story for people looking for a good contemporary novel!
