When Evan Chance gives up a successful corporate law career to tackle the bucket list he wrote when he was twelve, he has no idea where the road will lead him.
Caitlyn Sorenson is a happily settled small town doctor. When a sexy drifter rolls into town after a motorcycle accident leaves him stranded in Miller’s Pond for a few days with the homeliest dog ever, she can smell trouble even as she’s drawn to a man who is only passing through town.
But some scorching hot nights and a blooming tenderness mean two people will have to face up to the challenges of love.
From USA Today Bestselling Author Nancy Warren comes the first in an exciting new series of sexy, humorous romances about a family named Chance.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest and fair review.
I am a sap for a good love story, and this is one of the sweetest ones I have read in a while. Evan is at a cross roads in his life. He has just turned 35 when his mentor and work father figure dies. He needs to make the biggest decision of his life. Does he keep going on a path that could lead to his early destruction or does he take the pass less traveled and fulfill his “bucket list” from when he was 12 years old.
Through his journey he meets Dr. Caitlyn Sorensen the smart, beautiful country doctor who has taken over her grandfather’s practice. Caitlyn is uptight and meticulous but loved by her patients and has a big heart. Her best friend Charlotte is a hypochondriac pregnant woman that brings us some good laughs through out the story. Caitlyn has a past of her own that has brought her to Miller’s Pond.
Evan is the ruthless corporate lawyer who we all hate. He comes from hippy parents and is one of 12 children. He grew up in the chaos of a house hold that big and a the farm his family runs. As a result he is now ruthlessly organized. First impressions of Evan don’t make you love him, but you don’t hate him either. When Clayton dies and he is thrown into turmoil we meet the true Evan. He is kind and compassionate and loves deeply. I am completely drawn to him when he comes across Homely, a stray dog that has landed him in the town of Miller’s Pond till his bike can be fixed. The relationship Evan has with Homely shows just how compassionate he is.
These characters draw you in and make you love them. One of my favorite scenes is where Evan has stuck an “ugly” coffee mug in Caitlyn’s cabinet (in case your wondering Caitlyn DOES NOT have ugly coffee mugs, she is a control freak and everything matches and is in it’s proper place) and when she sees it after inspecting it further she uses it. This is a sweet, feel good book that I completely recommend.
