Whenever You Come Around – Robin Lee Hatcher – Kings Meadow Romance – Thomas Nelson – Published 12 May 2015
Charity Anderson turned her back on Kings Meadow years ago, with good reason, and has avoided visits to her hometown whenever possible. But with her house in Boise damaged by floodwaters and a book deadline bearing down, staying in her parents’ empty home seems her only option. However, being in Kings Meadow dredges up a painful secret, and old fears threaten to overwhelm her.
Charity’s former high school classmate Buck Malone never left town, instead sacrificing his dreams to take care of his family. Now he enjoys an uncomplicated life as a wilderness guide and confirmed bachelor. The last thing on his mind is settling down.
When Charity’s dog causes an accident that leaves Buck with a broken ankle and wrist at the start of prime tourist season, Charity has little choice but to render aid while he recuperates. Soon Buck becomes the inspiration for Charity’s hero, both on the page and off. Can he also help her face and overcome her fears so they might find their own happily ever after?
A great contemporary romance, with a charming small-town setting, sweet romance and beautiful writing style.
For Charity Anderson being forced back to Kings Meadow for the summer may be the chance to finally face her fears. But an accident caused by Charity’s dog may have Charity interacting with her neighbour, the handsome wilderness guide Buck Malone, far more than she was planning on.
The romance in Whenever You Come Around is incredibly sweet. It’s enough to make any sceptic believe in love and become starry eyed. The feelings between Charity and Buck grow softly. Buck is wonderfully charming and patient, a true cowboy and man of God. Charity is independent and yet so very fearful of her past. Neither was planning on finding the person that would turn their world upside down and make everything right.
I love the setting of Kings Meadow. It feels so believable, so small-town, country charming. I want to pack my bags and move there now. While Whenever You Come Around is part of the Kings Meadow series it can be read as a standalone, as it has it’s own complete set of characters and story arc. I particularly enjoy Robin Lee Hatcher’s writing style, which is simple and flows beautifully. A great contemporary romance.
