BOOK REVIEW | The Country Guesthouse (Sullivan's Crossing, #5) by Robyn Carr

Goodreads Summary: 

A summer rental, a new beginning…

Hannah Russell’s carefully crafted plans for her life have been upended without warning. When her best friend died suddenly, Hannah became guardian to a five-year-old named Noah. With no experience at motherhood, she’s terrified she’s not up to the challenge. She and Noah need time to get to know each other, so she decides to rent a country house with stunning views on a lake in rural Colorado.

When they arrive at the house, they are greeted by the owner, a handsome man who promises to stay out of their way. But his clumsy Great Dane, Romeo, has other ideas and Noah immediately bonds with the lovable dog. As Hannah learns to become a mother, Owen Abrams, who is recovering from his own grief, can’t help but be drawn out of his solitude by his guests.

But life throws more challenges at this unlikely trio and they are tested in ways they never thought possible. All three will discover their strengths and, despite their differences, they will fight to become a family. And the people of Sullivan’s Crossing will rally around them to offer all of the support they need.

My Review:

The Country Guesthouse is the fifth instalment in Sullivan's Crossing series, but it can read as a standalone. This is a small-town, women's fiction and romance series. 

Hannah Russell’s life is not perfect at the moment because of frustrating colleagues and a cheating ex-fiance, but all her problems dissipate when life throws a curveball at her. Her best friend suddenly dies, leaving her the custody of her five-year-old son, Noah. Hannah needs to figure her life and Noah's life out. She ends up taking a vacation with Noah, bringing him to a cabin in Sullivan's Crossing.

Owen Abrams is the owner of the cabin and a photographer, who is staying in the renovated barn while renting the cabin, because of the cancellation of his plans. Our heroine, Hannah and Noah soon meet him, Noah and Owen immediately click and Owen's dog, Romeo too. Owen himself has grief from his past, he too comes out of his shell because of Hannah and Noah. The foursome quickly became close, though they had a few hurdles to overcome, they can be happy because they are together.

Noah was really cute and very admirable! I loved him. The people in the town were quite lovely as well! While reading this book, I kept thinking of the word 'healing'. It was definitely the theme of this book. I teared up while reading some parts and feeling real relief towards the end because these people so deserved something good to happen in their lives. Though somethings that happen in this book would normally feel like they're happening too fast, the writing was so good and the story so captivating, you are right there with the characters and its comes all naturally. 

I recently started reading women's fiction books and Robyn Carr is becoming my fast favourite authors of this genre, so I highly recommend this book!
