It would have helped to start with the first book as I did mix up the characters a little through the first half. But I still grew close to each one and enjoyed their journey. I need to go back to book one now! The romance wasn't overally done, although a couple comments are a little humorous (romantic feelings). There are a couple non-detailed kisses.
Spiritual content weaved well into ...more

I've enjoyed this series so far. They are romance books but not as typical as a lot of them. 3 girls who ended up in the system became best friends and promised they would be there for each other no matter what. This is how they end up in the small town of Wishing Bridge.
They all have had traumatic lives as children and their stories are told. They each have a lot to overcome. The town is a litt ...more
The story takes place in a rural town in Western New York State. The two main characters are a doctor and a nurse practitioner who run a small practice in the community. Both intend to leave, in about three months, to pursue their careers elsewhere.
This was an easy, light read. The characters were well defined and were mostly from the first book in this series (Welcome to Wishing Bridge), which I haven't yet read, but intend to. The story has some rom ...more
