Her choice. His consequences.

Nurse Sophie Mattuchi has seen a lot of angry patients in the ER, but no one's ever rattled her like Jack Carter. He has no right to blame her for his friend's death. Sophie did everything she could. Didn't she? Yet his accusations sting, and that sets off all kinds of internal alarms. She's never cared this much about any man's opinion of her. But Jack is different. He stirs up feelings. Strong feelings. Guilt. Anger. Attraction. Curiosity. Sympathy. Sophie's definitely not interested in Jack, but even if she was, he'd never forgive her for the decision she made that night in the hospital. Would he?

I'm happy to be a part of the blog tour for this new addition to the Shores of Indian Lake series by Catherine Lanigan.  Harlequin Heartwarming is one of my favorite publishing lines because I know I can trust that books from them are sweet and clean.

I think this is the third book I've read in this series now.  It has all the old characters popping in at some point or another which really gives this series a feeling of community.  You don't have to read the books in order to understand or enjoy each one, but as always, reading the stories of previous characters gives an added measure of knowing and a feeling of coming home.

This book moves at a very sedate pace.  Sometimes I felt it dragging a bit, but the story is a good one and worth sticking with.  If you love a gentle romance with slow build, you will love this book.

Sophie and Jack have a rocky start.  They meet in the ER after Jack has been involved in a car accident and one of his business colleges dies.  The man that hit them was high on drugs.  This leads to a lot of anger on Jack's part- especially when he finds out that Sophie has aligned herself with an outreach agency that tries to help addicts recover and prevent children from getting hooked.  It's quite a mess there for awhile!

Sophie and Jack are each on their own personal journey through some life changes.  And then, they are on another journey together.  It's bumpy no matter what path you are looking at.  Somehow the little dog connects several people together in a way only a cute little dog can, I guess.  :)  

The ending was sweet and it made my heart smile.

Content:  Clean, some talk and events involving drug abuse and suicide.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
