The blurb from Amazon:

The highly anticipated sequel to #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr's What We Find transports readers back to Sullivan's Crossing. The rustic campground at the crossroads of the Colorado and Continental Divide trails welcomes everyone—whether you're looking for a relaxing weekend getaway or a whole new lease on life. It's a wonderful place where good people face their challenges with humor, strength and love. 

For Sierra Jones, Sullivan's Crossing is meant to be a brief stopover. She's put her troubled past behind her but the path forward isn't yet clear. A visit with her big brother Cal and his new bride, Maggie, seems to be the best option to help her get back on her feet. 
Not wanting to burden or depend on anyone, Sierra is surprised to find the Crossing offers so much more than a place to rest her head. Cal and Maggie welcome her into their busy lives and she quickly finds herself bonding with Sully, the quirky campground owner who is the father figure she's always wanted. But when her past catches up with her, it's a special man and an adorable puppy who give her the strength to face the truth and fight for a brighter future. In Sullivan's Crossing Sierra learns to cherish the family you are given and the family you choose. 

    My thoughts:

I was able to read this sequel to What We Find just as soon as it was released at my local library, which never happens to me! I live in a relatively small town, so the competition for books is fierce! I'm so glad I didn't have to wait because it's so much better to read books in a series back to back, in my opinion. So basically, I didn't even have to leave Sullivan's Crossing, and I was able to remember all of the great characters in the story.

In this book, we meet Cal Jones' sister, Sierra. She has had a troubled past but she agrees to move to Colorado to start over and be near her brother and his new wife, Maggie, who is also pregnant. Of course, it's not really as simple as that! The past Sierra hopes to leave behind is a dangerous one, and the book sort of moves into a bit of suspense. She makes several friends, and meets a firefighter named Conrad (I'm sorry. I just cannot call him by his nickname in the book, which is Connie!). Their relationship evolves into a romance that is so sweet...and HOT! They are perfect for one another. I felt like the relationship was realistic and didn't move too quickly.

I truly like the setting and the characters in this series.  The writer makes me see them in my mind as a real place with real people. I hope there will be more books in this series, because I will most definitely be reading them!
