There is a lot to say about this book. It’s got romance, tragedy, faith, and even a little drama. So where should I start?

Let’s start with Sarah—a Hospice nurse. Sarah is a very classic romantic lead, she’s just a woman who wants to keep her head down and get her job done. That’s not too much to ask, is it? We are guided into the story at a very steady pace, we get to know Sarah as a woman who’s got issues of her own but always manages to stifle them so that she can focus on others. ‘Others’ be

I wasn't sure what to expect when I began reading this. At first I was apprehensive, but after a chapter or two was drawn in to the story. Susan Rush portrays the end of life clearly and effectively. Sarah, as a traveling hospice nurse, faces death all the time. Through her Nana's little cards to help during discouragement, Sarah finds strength day by day. I loved how Sarah thought back to lessons her Nana taught her.

It seems like with a lot of books it always comes back to the romance. Sadly to

This book was a 4.5. It was an extremely enjoyable read! I learned to love each of the characters and was glad Sarah chose Nate. It was definitely a surprise when Marie showed up! This was a sad but but also a funny book. I think the only thing I would change about this book was Marie. I think I would of created an entire different book on her story. But this was still an amazing book and a must read!!!

*The author gave me this book for free on amazon Kindle in exchange for a honest review*

Just Over the Horizon is a sweet romance with a couple of great twists. The author follows the genre faithfully with the romantic couple meeting early in the story under quirky circumstances, there’s a rival, and there are conflicts which keep them apart. The great twists happen with advice from Sarah’s past, and biggest conflict is in Nate’s past. I also love that the story was allowed to progress past the natural happily ever ending to the wedding and beyond a year. It felt natural and althoug ...more

Sarah Reeves is a visiting hospice nurse, and has just moved to a new three-month assignment where she meets handsome carpenter Nate Williams while looking less than her best. A lot less than her best, but that doesn’t prevent the two becoming friends as they care for Nate’s adopted father. Sarah gets more involved in the community, and is even asked out by a handsome young doctor, and she finds herself torn, and perhaps even wanting to settle in one place.

There were quite a few typos and glitch

This was an enjoyable read. It did take me a while to get into it, but that could be because life has been a bit busy. The characters were believable and I liked them.

I wish I could say God whispered He wanted me to work with the dying, and I humbly and gratefully obeyed. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth. Mother Teresa, I am not. He led me to a career in hospice, but I ran in the opposite direction. Dying people scared me. And dead bodies? They terrified me. Plus, I'm a weeper. It's not a complete day if I haven't cried at least once--not ...more
