Overview

What We Find (Sullivan's Crossing Series #1) by Robyn Carr

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Virgin River and Thunder Point series explores the healing powers of rural Colorado in a story of one woman's journey to finding the happiness she's long been missing.

Under extreme pressure, neurosurgeon Maggie Sullivan knows she needs to slow down before she burns out completely, and the best place she can do that is Sullivan's Crossing.

Named for Maggie's great-grandfather, the land and charming general store at the crossroads of the Colorado and the Continental Divide trails now belong to Maggie's eccentric father, Sully. She relishes the opportunity to indulge in his simple way of life.

But Maggie's world is rocked and she must take responsibility for the Crossing. When a quiet and serious-looking hiker, Cal Jones, offers to lend a hand, Maggie is suspicious of his motives—until she finds out the true reason for his deliberate isolation.

Though Cal and Maggie each struggle with loss and loneliness, the time they spend together gives Maggie hope for something brighter just on the horizon…if only they can learn to find peace and healing—and perhaps love—with each other.

I love Robyn's Virgin River series. It took me awhile to get into this book, the writing style was different. It was good but it took me longer to read than her previous titles.

Like authors book but another story with perfect people, all handsome smart and rich. Liked Sully and would enjoyed the book more if he was the main character.

It has been a while since I have been lucky to read a book by Robyn Carr. However, she never fails to provide stories that are well written with interesting plots and characters. I was a fan of her Virgin River and Thunder Point Series. I seemed to have run out of new stories by her and was glad to come across this new series. It was a lovely story about two people needing to get a new lease on live and lucky to find each other in the beautiful state of Colorado. I look forward to the next book in this series. LA-TXN

This was a good start to a new series by one of my favorite authors. We get to meet the people of Sullivan's Crossing. This I am sure is going to be the beginning of some new friendships. I fell in love with Sully from the beginning. Now I have to say I was wondering about Cal when he first came on the scene but once we got to know him he was very lovable. I felt very bad for Maggie. She is such a kind person and just had so much go bad all at once. There were a few parts of this book that had me choked up, but the rest of the book was very good and touching. I am looking forward to reading the second book in this series very soon.

A wonderful story of finding oneself. Both are broken, lost and tired for very different reasons. They find one another, and, in doing that they find themselves. All of this set in a beautiful Colorado setting with a great supporting cast.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Maggie Sullivan has endured quite a bit of drama and has decided to escape to her father's small home town to help him and re center herself. While there she will have to decide if she wants to return to her crazy life and go a different direction. As all Robyn Carr books are it is such a great and easy read. It is easy to get into the characters and easy to get into the plot and I love it. Also as most Robyn Carr books go, I can probably predict early on where the story may end, but you never know how you will get there and the journey is enough to read and enjoy the story.

Identifying the Important Neurosurgeon Maggie Sullivan is teetering at her breaking point. Her best medical friend advises a little time away from the stresses of hospital, disintegration of a practice, lawsuit, and self-centered ex-lover. Maggie escapes from Denver to her father’s general store and campground in the beautiful Colorado mountains. Cal Jones rents a campsite and keeps to himself. He’s on a mission of healing and discovery, a simple wandering, homeless, widower lawyer. Life interferes and Maggie’s hospital leave becomes months instead of weeks. Cal becomes a confident of sorts plus her lover. When he moves up the trail to deal with his own past, she feels abandoned – did he consider her a fling unworthy of contacting again? Ms. Carr fills the pages with interesting characters shaped to make the reader eager to turn the page. She shows us life can be messy, unpredictable, and rewarding all at the same time.

A beautifully written book with such emotional highs and lows as to make it compelling... Maggie is a surgeon with lots of history and lots of baggage... Cal is an attorney with even more of both... But they come together at Sully's (Maggie's fathers) campsite while both are on a "break" from their careers and the story will grab you, hold you and simply won't let you go... I finished the 270+ pages in two sittings... Could not escape the pull of this story... A stand alone book that will leave you wanting more of the characters, the place and the story... Well Done Ms. Carr...

3.5 Stars Hotness Rating 3 out of 5 What We Find is a good start to the Sullivan's Crossing by Robyn Carr. Although, it was a bit slower paced the story and the characters held my attention and definitely have me wanting to read more about the highly entertaining and sometimes quirky inhabitants of this Colorado community. It held a simple and sweet appeal that was a nice distraction from the many drama-filled romances circulating these days. Maggie Sullivan was a character that I enjoyed a lot! As a surgeon that had tons of problems going on in her professional and personal life she escapes back to her own little piece of heaven, Sullivans' Crossing. Sullivan's Crossing holds her childhood memories, her father and the land that she loves. I loved how Maggie dealt with her taciturn father who wouldn't know how to coddle his daughter if he tried. Her personality fit in with these townspeople perfectly. Even when she met Cal and fell for him hard she was affectionate and open, but never mushy. I enjoyed Cal Jones immensely. The poor guy was trying to come to terms with a tragic past and a very unusual upbringing. He was just a great guy. Willing to pitch in and help without being asked he just did what needed to be done to help Sully (the owner and Maggie's dad) out when he suffered a heart attack. He expected nothing in return and even put up with some rude comments and observations with good humor. Cal was exactly what Maggie needed. His laid back approach to life and easy calm helped to balance Maggie. He brought out a playful side to her that we definitely didn't see in the beginning. I loved how he kept her guessing his full name throughout most of the book. I chuckled every time she spit out an even more outlandish suggestion than the one before. Their romance definitely wasn't a flash with sparks and sizzle. It was more of an easy, you've-always-been-the-one coupling. That's not to say it didn't come across as real because it did. It felt to me like they belonged together and there was no doubt it would be and it would always be them. I'm very interested to see where this series goes and read more about Sullivan's Crossing. This book was provided to me in exchange for my honest review. You can find this review and others at Books, Chocolate and Lipgloss

NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 I really liked this book. Ms. Carr does a great job of bring us a story that makes you want to cry, laugh and remember what it is like to fall in love again. I really loved the first interaction between Cal & Maggie. Maggie is so septical of this hangered looking camper who is offering help in her time of need. I loved the Maggie google's Cal to try to find out more about him. And she tries to guess what Cal is short for (and no I am not going to tell you). It was really great to see how two broken people can find some kind of happiness in this crazy world. I can’t wait to see what is next in this series. Favorite line: “If anyone tells you I passed out while you were being lowered to that little edge, they’re lying,” Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book from Netgalley & Harlequin (US & Canada) MIRA in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

As an avid follower of Robyn Carr I was completely thrilled with her new book "What We Find." It is very fine beginning of a new series. Since I am an impatient reader an almost wish I could have waited until several other books in the series were published so I could read them all without interruption. I guess I'll just have to reread this book HNB the next one comes out! Carr's descriptions of the Colorado mountains were breathtaking. Her character development left me wanting to meet, know, interact with, and revisit the inhabitants of Sullivan's Crossing. The twists and turns of the story kept me thoroughly engaged without the need for frantic action or a series of crises. I can honestly recommend this book to all my reader friend no matter their genre preferences. It is a damn fine book!

A new series start. I enjoyed reading What We Find. I was not sure where the characters would end up till the end. I look forward to seeing the characters again hopefully. We met a lot of characters. Maggie Sullivan is a Dr. a neurosurgery. Maggie's life is falling apart. She decides to go visit her father at Sullivan's Crossing. The family campground and store. The day she gets there a lot is going on. A medical emergency walks in and then her father has a heart attack. Sully is not a good patient and it is not happy away from home. A camper Cal Jones is a mystery stays to help the take care of things while Sully takes it easy. He is waiting for it to warm up before he goes out on the trail. There is a lot of drama, humor, romance, secrets as Maggie and Cal decide what they want there lives too look at. There is also a few love scenes. Is Maggie going to give up being a doctor? Where does Cal want to live and what about the career he left behind? I like the choices they make apart and together. I want to go to Sullivan's Crossing again to visit. The setting is Colorado. One of the trails people are hiking is the divide. I was given this ebook to read by Netgalley and Harelquin. In return I agreed to give a honest review of What We Find.

Carr takes readers to Sullivan’s Crossing with the same small town charm I’ve come to know and love her for. The picturesque setting was a fantastic counterpoint to the hustle and bustle of the high impact jobs and big city lives of the main characters. I found that the plot gets a little slow at times. That said, it is a complexly woven plot with intertwining lives of characters. This was definitely a very character intensive story. The very different lives of the large cast of characters pulled me in in a variety of different ways. I enjoyed each of them in their own way. Maggie’s story tugged at my heart and I loved how she didn’t fall into self-pity, even if she had moments of it. Cal’s family was an unexpected twist in this tale. I enjoyed the way that their dynamic was developed. It was so natural and real, if not something that I’d encounter in my daily life. This novel was a compelling start to Carr’s new series. I can’t wait to see where it goes next. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

What We Find by Robin Carr is the story of two people who are lost within their lives and need a fresh start in order to find themselves. Maggie Sullivan is a neurosurgeon who has reached an impasse in her life and career. She decides to visit her dad at Sullivan’s Crossing. California, “Cal”, Jones is a widowed lawyer, trying to pick up the pieces of his life and move forward after the death of his wife. He returned to his gypsy ways of childhood, traveling the country, only to spend some time at Sullivan’s Crossing. Sullivan’s Crossing is at the crossroads of the Colorado and the Continental Divide Trails. It is here that Maggie’s dad, Sully, runs a general store that had been passed down through the generations. It is here where Maggie and Cal each find a friend to talk to, share a bonfire with, as well as relax with. It is also here where the two begin to fall for each other and figure out their lives intent. Once again Robyn Carr has written a winner. I loved the way Robyn Carr took the reader along Maggie and Cal’s journey to find themselves. Along that path the two needed to determine how to use their talents to fulfill their lives yet not lose their relationship. She showed the growth in the relationship between these two characters as well as how their love for each other continued to grow. I highly recommend this book to all readers as I struggled to put this book down.
