Emily Carter is on the fast track to success when the unthinkable happens: a tragic accident claims the lives of her parents. Now Emily must set aside her dreams and raise her two younger siblings, Annie and Bryce. Emily and Annie are sisters, but that doesn’t mean they are anything alike. Whereas Emily reacts to the tragedy with her characteristic stoic calm, passionate Annie spirals into depression. Just when things seem like they can’t get any more difficult, Emily’s older half-brother and his fiancé arrive, not to help but to claim the family home he’s inherited from their parents. Without a place to call their own, Emily must take action—and fast.

When an exciting employment opportunity arises in Utah, the displaced Carters decide to build a new life in a new home. But it soon becomes clear that their future prospects will go far beyond professional as each sister is faced with an unexpected romance. Yet love is never simple, and in matters of the heart, one sister must proceed with caution while the other needs to take a leap of faith.

My Review:

Emily had obtained her degree from the university and was on the way to independence when tragedy struck! She was left to care for her younger sister and brother – both teenagers. If that was not daunting enough, her elder half-brother and his fiancé asked them to move out of the house their parents left him. there weren’t too many options. Their father had left her the ranch in Utah that was in drastic disrepair and was temporarily housing a couple who ran it as a Bed & Breakfast with the few rooms fit for renting.  She hated to disrupt the siblings lives anymore than they were already.

Her sister, Emily, was an actress but ad locked herself away since the accident. Her little brother was active but spent as much time he could with friends. She had some money from the life insurance, but how long could she make that last?

Her, soon to be, sister-in-law, sent her brother to remodel the kitchen in their present home. Could he help her decide what to do about the ranch?

The emotional turmoil within herself had to be contained. Her siblings needed her strength and direction. How will she get Emily out of her depression and back to work?

So many conflict and decisions had to be made. Was there going to be room for romance in her and her sister’s lives? Was there going to be room for anything good in their lives?

This is a story about tragedy, love, commitment, love, deceit, and developing relationships. The characters take on the essence of reality. The scenes portrayed are easily visualized. There are enough twists which keeps the readers rapt interest throughout this predicable tale. The reader will find it hard to put down! It is a book one will want to “cuddle up” relax with. It is very well written. The book cover and title were both well-chosen.

This earn a Five Stars rating.
*This book was gifted to me with no expectations of a positive review. This is my honest review.

Brittany Larsen may be an Idaho girl living in California, but at heart she is English. She loves all things Jane Austen and counts the time she and her husband viewed the couch where Emily Bronte died as one of their most romantic moments ever. Sadly, he has no recollection of it. When not reading nineteenth century English literature or writing her own romances, Brittany loves spending time with her three incredible daughters, Emma, Tess, and Jane, and her amazingly supportive husband, Shawn.
