Home, after a long time away, veterinarian Randi Meyers is attending the funeral of a distant relative when she is begged by a young boy to help his sister. Kay Newcombe, the young boy¿s sister, has injured herself while on a walk through the woods. When Randi turns to thank the young boy, he¿s nowhere to be found. Where did he go? And why? What mysterious circumstances surround his disappearance? Kay, with her leg now in a cast, is unable to work. Randi, who feels an unexplainable need to help Kay, takes her back with her to stay at her apartment. What is it about Kay that is attracting Randi? Both women, burned by ex-lovers, nevertheless begin to form an easy friendship. Easy that is, until one of their ex¿s decides to make an appearance? Whose ex has showed up? Why now? Do they pose a threat? If so, how far will they go to win? Will this keep a friendship from possibly turning into something more? When Randi makes a ¿house call¿ for a dog too injured to travel, she is fired from her job. The dog¿s owner finds this out and promises she will make it right. How? And why was Randi¿s boss so upset over the house call to begin with? Carrie Carr is a terrific writer, displaying that fact in her earlier books, Destiny¿s Bridge, Faith¿s Crossing, Hope¿s Path, Love¿s Journey, and Strength of the Heart. She again proves right on target with a new heartwarming book of two unlikely women who meet under dire circumstances, form a friendship and face all life has to throw at them, together. Something to Be Thankful For is a book more than capable of standing on its own!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Veterinarian Randi Meyers of Fort Worth, Texas, is single and lonely. She loves animals and works hard at her job, but she wants someone with whom to share her life. She has given up finding anyone, though, especially in the wake of the last bad relationship she had. So when she travels to her hometown for a funeral, she isn¿t expecting to find an unconscious woman in the woods near the cemetery nor does she expect to form an attachment to the injured woman . . . but she does. ####### Kay Newcombe comes from a terrible hardscrabble background, but she is trying to pull herself out of the abuse and poverty of the past. Neither woman has much hope for anything more than an acquaintance. They come from different worlds and with mountains of baggage. Do they have a hope of finding something together? And what about the echoes from their pasts which threaten their newfound friendship? ####### Fans of Carr¿s Lex/Amanda series will be thrilled to see that the author has written this stand-alone book about two new characters. The writing is crisp and fresh with both humor and pathos sprinkled throughout. It¿s an excellent story about two women who¿ve gone through the School of Hard Knocks. You can¿t help but root for Kay and Randi as they try to make sense of their lives. This is Carrie Carr¿s best novel yet, and I highly recommend it. ~~Lori L.
