    A Weaver Beginning was a charming romance. I liked the characte

    A Weaver Beginning was a charming romance. I liked the characters, the town, the Weaver family. The plot was small town life. It did have two love scenes that I skipped over.

    Sloan McCray has spent the year in Weaver and is not sure what he plans to do next. His twin wants him to stay in Weaver. He does not see himself as a hero. As a hard time dealing with his memories and guilt.

    Abby Marcum has just moved too Weaver with her young brother on New Years eve. The house she bought heat is not working. Their is lots of snow in driveway as she tries to unpack her car. She is 23 and the new school nurse who will start in a few days.

    Dillon is her 7 year old half brother that she has raised for the past two years. He is cute but really shy. He is afraid when he sees the stranger with snow shovel coming over from next door.

    Sloan helps her carry stuff inn and when he realizes that the house is cold and that she plans to heat with fireplace till after the holidays. He brings her wood starts the fire, shovels the driveway for her before he tells her who he is. A sheriff deputy who was in the news for getting biker gang busted up working undercover deep undercover.

    Dillon takes to his neighbor when he finds out he has a badge and gun.

    I smiled a lot reading this story. Dillon is cute and can really say the wrong thing at the wrong time as all kids tend to do sometimes.

    I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when done by Netgalley and Harlequin.

    Weaver deputy Sloan McCray isn't sure how long he plans to stay

    Weaver deputy Sloan McCray isn't sure how long he plans to stay in the small town. A former ATF agent, Sloan is used to staying on the move and not settling down. He has halfway through the lease on his house and his temporary appointment with the sheriff's office when sassy Abby Marcum and her shy brother Dillon move in next door. His attraction to the elementary school nurse is immediate. But Sloan doesn't do relationships and love, least of all with a woman with responsibilities to a young child. 

    Abby Marcum hopes that moving Dillon to Weaver isn't a mistake. She's been raising him on her own since her grandfather died and her grandmother had to be put in a home, but she's not sure she's making the best decisions for him. Men run at the thought of a woman raising a child in her experience, so she tries to ignore her sexy new neighbor after he lets her know he isn't a forever kind of guy. But how can she resist him when her usually reserved little brother begins opening up to him in ways she's never seen him open up before?

    I really enjoyed A Weaver Beginning. Ms. Leigh does a great job of giving her characters believable personality quirks and failings. It was easy to see that Sloan was a good guy who was very conflicted about the choices he'd made in life and how he should go forward. Abby's determination to give Dillon the same loving home life her grandparents provided to her wasn't as self-sacrificial and martyr-like as it would have been portrayed by a less skilled writer. Ms. Leigh strikes the correct balance between flawed and wounded in her characters to leave them their agency. The supporting characters are also a lot of fun. I would love to read a story with Dee and Principal Gage, and read how Tara and Axel got together. If any cast of supporting characters has the potential to spawn a series, it was this one. 

    A Weaver Beginning deals with real issues and doesn't shrink away from them. Ms. Leigh dealt very skillfully with some weighty issues that could have dragged the story down in tone in a way that didn't detract from the love story being written. I thought this was one of the strongest elements of A Weaver Beginning–Ms. Leigh's ability to make the story realistic without losing the magic. 

    There were a few things I didn't like about A Weaver Beginning. I found Sloan's initial hot and cold reactions a little too…consistent to be as realistic as the rest of the story. I also didn't like that thing he does towards the end of the book that I can't write because it would ruin it for the readers. Even though I can't write about it, I will say I didn't like it because it made the ending feel more rushed than it had to be. 

    Despite these small grievances, I think that A Weaver Beginning is a solid read. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys romances with a wounded hero who's a real hero, a heroine determined to make a better life for her family, small town nosiness, and precocious children.
