For Sierra Jones, Sullivan's Crossing is meant to be a brief stopover. She's put her troubled past behind her but the path forward isn't yet clear. A visit with her big brother Cal and his new bride, Maggie, seems to be the best option to help her get back on her feet.
Not wanting to burden or depend on anyone, Sierra is surprised to find the Crossing offers so much more than a place to rest her head. Cal and Maggie welcome her into their busy lives and she quickly finds herself bonding with Sully, the quirky campground owner who is the father figure she's always wanted. But when her past catches up with her, it's a special man and an adorable puppy who give her the strength to face the truth and fight for a brighter future.
Any Day Now by Robyn Carr is #2 in her Sullivan's Crossing series. It could be read as a stand alone, however why miss out on the first one and the great story of Cal and Maggie?
I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Sierra, sister of Cal. She has had a very rough road to hoe, but when faced with very severe challenges those with power and strength show what they are made of. Not necessarily that Sierra would see herself as a strong kickass kinda gal, but she does have inner strength, and a group of people around her who care and are there for her. She faces into her life, makes amends for past misdemeanours and is an all round great model for a young girl who just might make an appearance before too long.
Connie is the firefighter, paramedic who is soon attracted to Sierra and Molly - you'll have to read the book to find out who Molly is. Just let's say she is adorable and just might have a thing going with Connie.
I loved that we met up with the characters from book one and saw their lives as they moved on from where we left them last. It was especially great to check in with Sully, Maggie's grandfather and Tom a local divorcee who realises there just might be more happiness in his future than he first thought.
I loved the little quotes from various well known people at the beginning of each chapter, little messages that can apply to life and in particular to what was about to happen next in the plot.
Another heartwarming, delightful story from Robyn Carr, with enough tension and drama to have me flipping the pages as fast as I could. Already looking forward to the next one in the series.
