Library Journal Review
At loose ends after leaving the army and then going walkabout for a month in Australia, Dakota Jones heads for Colorado to check in with his sister and brother before deciding on his next move. He doesn't intend to stay long, but the long-neglected family connections, welcoming townsfolk, and stunning surroundings-to say nothing of his interest in bartender Sid Shandon, the one woman in town who won't give him a chance-have him rethinking his plans. A footloose hero finds a place to put down roots and a brilliant heroine learns to trust again in this relationship-centered story that adds a plethora of old and new characters (Sister Mary Jacob is priceless) to the mix. VERDICT A beautifully crafted plot with multiple story lines, relatable characters, and a setting that makes readers want to head for the Rockies add up to another solid title. Like many of Carr's books, it will appeal to romance and women's fiction fans alike. Carr (Any Day Now) lives in Henderson, NV. [See Prepub Alert, 10/22/17.] © Copyright 2018.

Booklist Review
Fans of beloved women's-fiction writer Carr will enjoy spending time with the Jones siblings in the third book in the Sullivan's Crossing series, while readers who have not read What We Find (2016) and Any Day Now (2017) may have trouble connecting to the narrative. The rural Colorado setting is enticing, but natives will find the geography and places visited unrealistic. Still, Carr, as always, creates sympathetic, empathetic characters who deal with difficult problems. Dakota Jones, recently discharged from the U.S. Army, turns up at his brother Cal's home in the Colorado mountains near where his sister, Sierra, lives and finds a job hauling trash. His good looks and magnificent physique attract a couple of women looking for a man and perhaps even willing to go to deranged lengths to secure him. But he becomes interested in bartender Sid, sister of the bar's owner who is hiding out from her own past accomplishments and amazing skills.--Herald, Diana Tixier Copyright 2018 Booklist
