The Country Guesthouse

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.

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

You know that Robyn Carr can just write a story that makes you feel good! Sure, her characters have problems- but they overcome them and usually have a ton of support from other characters. If you like feel good stories- look no further.

The Country Guesthouse was a bit different of a HEA book- usually, the couple is back and forth on the why’s they should be together, there is some manufactured conflict (sometimes a bit too much) and then the HEA ending happens. This was a bit of a departure from the usual formula and I liked how it played out.

What I liked:

The cover. Excuse me while I spend time day dreaming about sitting on that porch and getting lost in that view 😉

Hannah. She was a great character- strong when she needed to be, full of hope, and ready to go the distance for those she loves.

Romeo. Who can resist a lovable dog? The only thing better is a lovable cat! #TeamCat here 🙂


Bottom line: This was a nice break from the suspense/mystery/sleep with the lights on books I have been reading obsessed with lately.
