Between the urban bustle of Denver and the high-stress environment of a career in neurosurgery, Maggie Sullivan has hit a wall. When an emergency high-risk procedure results in the death of a teenager, Maggie finds herself in the middle of a lawsuit—and experiencing levels of anxiety she's never faced before. She knows she needs to slow down before she burns out completely, and the best place she can think to do that is Sullivan's Crossing. 

Named for Maggie's great-grandfather, the land and charming general store at the crossroads of the Colorado and the Continental Divide Trails have been passed down through the generations and now belong to Maggie's eccentric father, Sully. When she shows up unannounced, he welcomes her with open arms, and she relishes the opportunity to indulge in his simple way of life. 

But shortly after arriving, Maggie's world is rocked once again and she must take on more responsibility than she'd planned. Though she's relieved a quiet and serious-looking hiker, Cal Jones, is willing to lend a hand, Maggie is suspicious of this mysterious man's eagerness to help—until she finds out the true reason for his deliberate isolation. 

Though Cal and Maggie each struggle with loss and loneliness, the time they spend together gives Maggie hope for something brighter just on the horizon…if only they can learn to find peace and healing—and perhaps love—with each other






This may be a difficult book for some readers to get into and to stick with -at least at first. It was tedious, with stilted characters and no emotional tug to them. That lack of emotional interest changes as the story progresses. Mark me well though -the character's never get 'overly' emotional, not how it can be played out in some romances using younger,greener character's. These two are in their late thirties and early forties and have already lived and learned a great deal.

Actually it seemed to me to be a near classic case of tell not show and that annoyed me. However, once I got used to the authors style of writing I began to look underneath the lack of emotion for what it really was. Two wounded characters trying to hold themselves together.

An interesting aspect to this novel is that after about 40% of the book is done parts of the book are told in Maggie and Cals separate voices, often times with them doing their own thing, but at the same time thinking about each other and fixing their lives-separately.

This was not a true 'romance' at least not in my eyes. Yes, there was steamy sex and a HEA but this was still different; something better than a 'romance'. It was what real life could be for us if we were fictional character's in a good writers hands.

There was really very little angst in a book that could have been riddled with it, and I want to thank Ms Carr with every drop of my being!
