ABOUT THIS BOOK
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.
A compelling story about loss, grief, and second chances, THE COUNTRY GUESTHOUSE by Robyn Carr is the kind of story that tugs on your heartstrings and makes you feel emotionally connected to the characters in a very real way.
When Hannah Russell arrives home early from a work retreat she catches her fiancé cheating on her with her assistant, so she decides that it is definitely time for a change. But when her best friend suddenly dies, Hannah's life will never be the same again because now she has five-year-old Noah to look after and she will do everything she possibly can to make him happy after all that he has been through. Needing some time away to figure out just how she is going to become a parent, Hannah and Noah head to a stunning house in Colorado for a holiday and it isn't long before they have both found comfort and strength in their new surroundings and in their newfound friendship with the owner of their rental, Owen. And having Hannah and Noah around has breathed new life into Owen's solitary existence, where he has dealt with his guilt and grief all alone for so long. But as Hannah and Noah try to figure out their next move, someone from the past threatens everything that they have come to hold dear. Will they figure out a way for them all to be a family before it is too late?
This was the first book that I picked up to read in 2020 and it did not disappoint. The characters are engaging and loveable (with the exception of one or two!), and the setting came to life at every turn. I loved Hannah's love and dedication to Noah and watching her and Owen open themselves up to love again after everything that life has thrown at them was truly lovely to watch. Noah is a lovely character and my heart broke for his loss and I admired his feisty nature and determination to keep going. The topic of grief and tragic loss are excellently handled in a very sensitive way throughout, and I had tears in my eyes many, many times.
THE COUNTRY GUESTHOUSE by Robyn Carr is an excellent story about hope and community, and I highly recommend it to all fiction fans.
