Overview

The View From Here (Eureka, Colorado Series #1) by Cindy Myers

In this heartfelt, beautifully written novel, a woman with nothing left to lose finds the courage to start over in the last place she ever expected. . .

Newly divorced Maggie Carter has little to show for her marriage except a pile of boxes and regrets. So when she learns she's inherited an old house and an abandoned gold mine in Eureka, Colorado, she doesn't hesitate to leave Houston behind. In Colorado, she can learn about her estranged father and take stock of her life. After all, where better to decide what your next move should be than in a cabin 10,000 feet above sea level?

Eureka is a tiny hamlet with a café, a library, and plenty of intriguing locals. There's the colorful town mayor, Lucille, and her prodigal daughter Olivia, bitter librarian Cassie, and handsome, enigmatic Jameso Clark, who had a fascinating love-hate relationship with Maggie's father. Then there are the soaring views of distant mountains and clear blue sky, of aspen trees and endless stars. Piece by piece, Maggie is uncovering her father's past--and reconciling with her own. And in this small mountain town, she just might find a place where she truly belongs.

The View From Here by Cindy Myers Maggie is relocating after she found her husband had cheated on her. Her father who she had never known left her a cabin in the Colorado mining town and she was heading to check it out. Her best friend Barbara is a true friend as she's helped her and been there for her the whole time. What she discovers in the town is a small community where everybody knows everybody and their business, but a caring one. The book also follows the antique shop/mayor when her daughter and son return to live with her. There is much about the town history and how it's preserved. The mines fascinate me and I loved learning about it all and things discovered. Although there were a lot of people it was easy to keep track of them and what they mean to the story being told. Everything is going along fine as she discovers a new love and her and Barbara discover the mine that was locked up. It leads to other things that can harm some people. Jamoso is a lifesaver as he tells her many stories of her father, piecing it all together as she never knew him at all. Love and sex make this a really great story.

I got right into this one as a sample so I ordered it. It read easily all the way through. The story was just a really nice story...I liked the people - even the ornery ones. The issue I had is that it just wrapped everything up too quickly. After I finished I kept thinking I needed to finish it off...nope...it was over. It was just cut off. I did enjoy reading it...just felt a little short-changed.

I liked the story and the characters but there if no way I would pay 11.50 for an authors second book, the sequal, especially since there are more established authors equally as talented whose books are under five dollars.

I like the fact that it's a bit more modern than most books I read about the mountains and "mountain-folk". It was refreshing to find one set in present time and not the depression or earlier. I am also about to start the sequel (which I figured was coming after the ending). I'll enjoy seeing how Maggie and Jameso's romance continues!

Reviewed by Alice DiNizo for Readers' Favorite Maggie Stevens has been a faithful wife to her husband, Carter, for twenty years. But she finds he has cheated on her for five years and now has the audacity to divorce her, leaving Maggie for an older, wealthier woman. Poor Maggie! Carter has taken most of their furniture and paintings, leaving her with hardly anything beyond the Steuben glass they have collected over the years. Then Maggie finds that the father, Jacob Murphy, who abandoned her and her now dead mother when Maggie was only a newborn baby, has died. He has left her his cabin, a Jeep and a gold mine named the French Mistress. So, bidding farewell to Houston, Texas, and her dear friend Barbara Stanowski, Maggie heads to Eureka, Colorado, where her inheritance is located. Jacob, as he is known to everyone in the small town of Eureka, was a town eccentric. He fought in Vietnam and he carried awful memories of his time there. Jake found peace living with the residents of Eureka and even made a friendship with Winston, a mountain goat who loves being fed Lorna Doones. Can Maggie settle down here in Eureka and enjoy the view that is offered? "The View from Here" by Cindy Myers is a delightful and well-written story of a middle-aged woman, Maggie Stevens, who has to chart a new path in life. The residents of Eureka are three-dimensional to say the least. They come alive with the author's sense of humor which is apparent in "The View from Here". On page 137, the author reminds readers that the gate to Jake's French Mistress mine has a sign that reads "No trespassing. Violators will be shot. Survivors will be shot again." The plot flows smoothly to the story's conclusion and readers will love reading every word in "The View from Here". It is a story, a romance, and a tale that will bring smiles to faces everywhere.
