I love this series. Each book is a stand alone. This book has been on my wish list for what seems like forever. I'm glad I finally took the time to read it. It was a really sweet romance.

Abby, and her little brother Dillon just moved from Branden to Weaver. They didn't have good parents, and was raised by their grandparents. Their grandfather passed away, and Their grandmother had Alzheimer. Abby took care of her for awhile, but it just got too hard trying to raise her kid brother, finish colle
Good book. Abby has come to Weaver to be the new school nurse. It also gives her a chance to make a better life for herself and her seven year old brother. As she is moving in to her new house she meets next door neighbor Sloan who comes over to shovel her driveway. She's wary of him at first but also very attracted to him. Sloan is drawn to her also, but tries to resist.

I really liked Abby. She hasn't had things easy in her life. She was raised by her grandparents when her mom dumped her with

I really enjoyed this very much.

The story take place where Abby relocated to Weaver with her young brother, met Sloan who is her immediate neighbour. She sold her grandfather’s house and move to a new environment to start over. She have also taken a new job as a school nurse that provide working hours the same as her brother’s school hour. Her dedication towards her brother warm Sloan’s heart. Sloan, on the other hand, is a nomad. He never stayed in a place for too long. He is the small town sheriff-deputy who left the ATF age ...more

I’m pretty certain this is the first Allison Leigh book I’ve read, although you shouldn’t take me up on my word here. There are probably dozens of stories I’ve read and I can’t tell you what their title/author’s name is even with a gun to my head.

Ms. Leigh’s writing is lovely. It’s light, and flowing, and has a way to word out feelings in a very real way.

I really liked Abby. She’s young, inexperienced in more ways than one and is very sweet. She’s independent and while very “green” in some aspec


A Weaver Beginning was a charming romance. I liked the characters, the town, the Weaver family. The plot was small town life. It did have two love scenes that I skipped over.

Sloan McCray has spent the year in Weaver and is not sure what he plans to do next. His twin wants him to stay in Weaver. He does not see himself as a hero. As a hard time dealing with his memories and guilt.

Abby Marcum has just moved too Weaver with her young brother on New Years eve. The house she bought heat is not

3.5 Stars

I really enjoyed reading this sweet love story. It’s a refreshing break from all the angst ridden books I’ve been reading lately. I got into this one right away and it kept my attention until I finished it. It flowed nicely and is well written. I noticed only a few minor editing issues, nothing to take away from the story.

Abby is a strong young woman with a lot of responsibility on her shoulders. She handles it well and knows what she wants. I liked the fact that no matter how much she

I imagine writing Harlequin Special Edition books can be a challenge. I’d like to know more about the ‘rules’ for this line, because they seem to be aiming for ‘wholesome’ in some aspects, but allowing more realistic behaviour in others.

I think Allison Leigh handled this dilemma very well, though I did cringe rather badly when the twenty-three year old heroine exclaimed, “Oh, criminy!” (an interesting fact: nobody under a hundred and fifty says ‘Oh, criminy’!).

Weaver Beginning by Allison Leigh
3 stars

Sloan McCray is on temporary assignment as a deputy sheriff in Weaver, and has a year lease on a house. He is trying to decide the direction he wants to take in his life. He has a dark past which he has a hard time moving past. Sloan looks out his window on New Year’s Eve and notices someone is moving in next door. They have been bringing box after box into the house and didn’t bother to shovel. Something draws him outside to help his new neighbors. Abby

Again, if Goodreads allowed this, I would probably give this one a 3.5. I enjoyed it. A very easy read, little angst and a satisfying resolution.

This novel felt very real for the most part (we'll get to the part where it's not quite below). Abby, the heroine, is in her early 20's, a school nurse who has relocated to a new town and job with her younger half-brother, Dillon. Her earlier life is revealed in carefully
Then, A Weaver Beginning by Allison Leigh. This was yet another in my streak of Harlequin requests, and I'm sad to report that it is completely forgettable. I had to go back and read the synopsis to have any idea what it was about. It wasn't terrible- I'd probably have remembered that- but the love story was too quick to be believable and the internal conflict was weak. Sloan McCray has moved back home to recover from his past life as an undercover agent. The town believes he is a hero while he ...more
This is an installment in the Return To The Double C series, and though it stands alone, I think I was at a disadvantage not having read the previous books. it wasn't anything neglected or missing, I just didn't have the connection to the series mentioned by other reviewers, and I felt a little like I was late to a movie. The story was good, the characters well drawn, and the setting strong. The lead couple was likeable and their gradual journey to love and happily ever after was satisfying. The ...more
Finally we get to read about Sloan which we first meet in "A Weaver Wedding".. and it doesn't disappoint!!

"Small town deputy Sloan McCray was making amends for his past. They called him a hero but only he had to live with the difficult choices he'd made. And he certainly wasn't prepared to fall in love again, not even with his beautiful—and innocent—new neighbor, whose very presence was a balm to his troubled soul.

There was no doubt in Abby Marcum's mind that Sloan was the guy for her. Though s
I enjoy a good romance, and Allison Leigh's A Weaver Beginning did not disappoint! She weaves a beautiful story of every day happenings and brings joy to the reader. How many grandparents, siblings, and others are raising children not their own. Yet, in the midst of all the decisions and living, love can be found. The question to ask is, "Can it be won?" We all make decisions in our lives that we wish we could change. But, it is those decisions that make us the people we are today. A Weaver Begi ...more
A Weaver Beginning was a nice, sweet story. The characters were okay. Abby had a lot of responsibility for a woman of about 23, but she handled everything that happened to her and her brother very well. Sloan had to deal with things that happened in his past but was really good with Abby's brother, Dillon; and, he was an overall good guy. He just needed to deal with the demons of his past. I wanted to love these characters, but I just didn't really find myself caring much about what happened to ...more
"3.5 out of 5 stars, this is a sweet, fun, and charming novel! It's about a young woman protecting her little brother while trying to raise him right, falling for her "dangerous," handsome, and protective neighbor with hopes of a great future for them all."

Read more of this review and two teasers on my blog once (and after) it's posted on August 17, 2013:
I wont go in to the details of the story as I cant do that justice. I really liked the entire thing.

A sweet story of love and helping out each other. I sat a read it cover to cover in one sitting. It was wonderfully written and the caracters seemed to flow in just the right way for me. I liked the way Sloan fights getting close to Abby.

Its a story that I would sit and read again if I have time.
I liked this: the characters, the setting and the story are all compelling. The strange thing about this series is that, even though I have read several, I don't remember much about them. In this book, some of the characters from past books are in it and I don't remember anything about the books they were in.

"TOP PICK! The small town is the ideal backdrop, the little boy is charmingly impudent, the supporting characters are faultless and the blow-your-mind lovemaking is the icing on the cake." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars

Miniseries: Return to the Double C
A Weaver beginning was a very good book. Sloan was a hero but he didn't think he was, because of what happened in his past. Abby moves next door with her 12 year old brother. They make him care again.
I'd probably give it 4.5 stars.
