I had a wonderful time savoring this story.

Garrett was an interesting hero, though he was a bit naive thinking the best of people he admired and not seeing their foibles. However, none of us are omnipotent and he has a good heart. It was enlightening to see how his eyes were opened and how he responded to the different situations one they were.

Our heroine Julie although she was attracted to Garrett was deliberate in her choice in pursuing a relationship with him. She is thinking of two things: She has a child to consider and he probably will be moving on. Is it enough to just live in the moment?

The story was just the right mix of family interactions, romance and a little bit of danger and intrigue.

Others have described the story, so I won't repeat previous reviews. One reviewer did mention inconsistency with the brothers/sisters ages. For some reason when I read books inconsistencies really annoy me, and makes me wonder where is the editor? Besides this one, in another part of the story, the sisters are headed out for a day of wedding dress shopping. The whole family sits down to a huge breakfast before leaving. Two or so pages later it's mentioned that the sisters had planned to stop for breakfast on the road, and then do. Later in the book Libby invites Julie to a barbeque because Tate defrosted a lot of steak and she made a huge amount of potato salad. Several pages later (same day), they are all gathered at the Silver Spur for a chicken and mashed potato dinner cooked by the housekeeper.

Misspellings, inconsistencies, different spellings of a character's name, these things distract from the story. At least for me anyway.

Otherwise, it was a good story, a bit predictable, and as another reviewer mentioned, it took a while for the relationship to heat up.

And for the reviewer who asked how a book can be reviewed before it's been released -- Harriet Klausner is a well know book critic. I'm sure she (and others) get their copies before the general public do.
