Review Copy Obtained from Publisher Through NetGalley
All Abby Cahill wanted was a quiet summer job in the beautiful Wisconsin woods. But the hospital where she’s filling in turns out to be overcrowded, understaffed and decidedly stretched for cash. And as if she didn’t have enough on her hands, the only vacancy in town for a “single woman with mutt” is at the farmhouse of wildlife biologist Ethan Matthews, whose son is with him for the season, along with several newborn puppies.
Ethan is a handsome, solitary man who seems to need Abby as much as she needs him. But she shouldn’t be needing him or anyone else—at the end of August she’s got to go back to her job in the city teaching nursing. This is just a temporary arrangement, which is starting to feel too comfortable, too much like home.
Abby Cahill and Ethan Matthews are well rounded and appealing characters. Abby and Ethan’s tentative friendship slowly gives way to an understated and tender romance. A couple of unanticipated subplots surrounding vandalism at Ethan’s farm and some strange goings on at the hospital where Abby works provide added interest and tension to the storyline.
Home at Blackberry Hill by Roxanne Rustand is a multi-layered novel with a charming cast of characters. A rural setting, cute dogs and an adorable child are the perfect backdrop for this family oriented and heartwarming story. Home at Blackberry Hill is the perfect addition to the Harlequin Heartwarming line.
