The first Eternity Springs contemporary mountain romance is a warm inspiring linear tale

Architect Gabriel Callahan's life ended in Virginia when his wife Jen and their son Mathew passed away; today his child would be six years old. Out walking in the snowy Murphy Mountains Just outside of Eternity Springs, Colorado, he trips but does not bother to get up. Instead he pulls out a glock with one bullet in it when a beast jumps on his back with claws ripping him. Thinking it is amountain lion, he is ready to fight for his life when he hears the sound of barking from a mangy boxer who tongues him in joy. Realizing the irony, Gabe laughs for the first time in months.

Gabe brings the injured canine to Eternity Springs Veterinary Clinic where Dr. Nicole Sullivan practices animal medicine. As Dr. Nic cares for the unconscious boxer hurt by an animal trap, she also notices Gabe's shirt is bloody from the dog's claws and teeth. She cleans his cuts and quarantines the canine until they can insure he is not rabid. Starting with the canine and soon "volunteering" on a renovation project, Gabe finds the townsfolk will not leave him alone. Finally there is Dr. Nic who he liked even before the dog introduced him to her. However, though she makes it clear she loves him as does Clarence the dog; he knows love hurts fearing this second chance to breathe again.

The first Eternity Springs contemporary mountain romance is a warm inspiring linear tale starring two likable individuals who have found possible second chances at life in the Rocky Mountains if they take the risk; she is willing and has with her veterinary practice while he hesitates. Aptly named Clarence is more an angel than a just a dog as readers will believe It's A Wonderful Dog's Life.

    tI needed a break from cozy mysteries and this provided the perfect one.  I enjoyed it so much that  I ordered all the others in the series. This was the first in the series.  I can't wait to see what happens to the other characters in the series.  Gabe and Nic were a good choice for the beginning characters.  There were enough hints about future alliances to tempt me to read on. While not the strongest romance that I've read, it kept my attention. Unfortunately, I felt that the ending left me hanging.  I hope that the next book will let me know what happened to Gabe and Nic.

    Feel Good Story

    I really liked this story. At times the storyline was a bit whimsy for my taste, almost took one an angelic feel, like the author wanted you to believe in fairy tales, but it wasn't the main focus of the story. The main characters were great, Gabe was so broken and was looking for something he didn't know he was needing and Nic was so battered from a recent betrayal and old daddy wounds. The secondary characters were delightful. It was so nice to meet so many townsfolk and get a "feel" for Eternity Springs. The camaraderie and friendships had a Virgin River (Robyn Carr) feel. This book had it all, an epic love story, a mystery by way of a 100 year old dead bride, and a town banding together to make their town great again.
