Fresh starts, hope, and happily ever afters…
Nurse Sage Nichols life changed when she lost her favorite patient and inherited a bed and breakfast in a town she didn’t know existed. She traveled to Aspen Cove intent to sell so she could hurry back to her life in Denver. Little did she know, she was about to find everything she ever needed in the tiny mountain town with a big heart. Sage found herself in a place where caring for your neighbor was a way of life. In her case, that happened to be surly Cannon Bishop, the man of her dreams.
Cannon Bishop was a man who learned long ago that hope was a dangerous thing. Closed off from the world after a family tragedy, Cannon lived a lonely life as the owner of Aspen Cove’s only bar and son to the town drunk. When Sage Nichols breezed into town, she offered the possibility of more if he’d only open his heart. Cannon’s protective walls tumble and suddenly a brighter future of healing, hope, and peace was possible… if only Sage would stay.
One Hundred Reasons is the first book in the Aspen Cove Series and it follows the story of Sage and Cannon. Sage is the most caring nurse in her department. Some might say she cares a little too much. And when she loses her favorite patient, Sage quickly finds that her world has been turned upside down. She never imagined herself inheriting a bed and breakfast in a small town. Her plan is simple: go to Aspen Cove and sell the property as quickly as she can so she can return back to her life as she knows it. But, what she didn’t plan on was getting swept up in the small town charm….Cannon is man that hasn’t had any hope in a long time. He is no stranger to tragedy and has closed himself off to the world. But when Sage blows into town, he suddenly finds himself wanting to open up and hope again. With Sage around, his world seems brighter and filled with possibility. The only problem….Sage isn’t planning on staying…
Overall, I thought this book was a quick and enjoyable read. I thought it was written well and had a good pace. The characters were real and perfectly flawed. They capture your interest immediately and leave you wanting to know more about their story. I loved Cannon and Sage. Sage had the biggest heart and when she loved someone, she loved hard. And when she loses her favorite patient, it forces her to reexamine her life and figure out who she is meant to be and what she is meant to do. And meeting Cannon was just what the doctor ordered. He was her total opposite and they butted heads quite a lot. Cannon’s walls are sky high, but if anyone has a chance of breaking those walls down, it certainly is Sage.
One Hundred Reasons is exactly what I’m looking for in a sweet, small town romance. One Hundred Reasons had the perfect balance of sweet romance, with a little drama and of course some steamy moments. This is my first read by this author and I am looking forward to checking out more books from her in the future.
