Goodreads: Contractor Wes Mathews is nearly finished hiking the Appalachian Trail in honor of his recently deceased best friend when he falls terribly ill. He stumbles into the nearest town and soon finds himself indebted to the beautiful young doctor who owns the clinic. In lieu of payment, he proposes a trade that will keep him in town—and away from obligations to his best friend’s sister—for several weeks.
But as Avery and Wes spend time together, their friendship begins moving into unexpected territory. Soon they both begin to question their plans for the future. But will Wes be able to let go of the debt he owes his best friend? And will Avery find the courage to risk everything for love?
Ope’s Opinion: This is the second in the Riverbend series. You certainly do not need to read the first one to enjoy this one, but it is such a good series, I recommend starting at the beginning. Denise Hunter is a wonderful writer and this one is among her best ones.
The characters were ones you want to spend time with. The whole Robinson family are realistic, have flaws and make you want the best for them. The romance in this moved along at a perfect pace.
Although you know where the story will end, the ride along the way was amazing. I can’t wait for the next one in the series. Harvest Moon will be out in September.
