In the small town of Woodlea the local Vet, Ella is on the radar of Edna who loves to matchmake. Ella has it set in stone that she has no interest at all in giving her heart to another man and firmly makes Edna aware of this, but even so, Edna can’t help but tamper just a little.
The wonderfully handsome Saul Armstrong, who lives in the adjoining property to Ella, is someone that Edna feels would make the perfect partner for the Vet. Ella and Saul come with their scars, both emotional and physical.
Saul has to call on Ella’s Veterinary expertise when one of his prized bison has a medical emergency. As time goes by they end up spending more and more time together, as they both help the elderly owner of the sandstone cottage that Ella is living in. Violet, the owner of the cottage, has lived with great sadness for many years.
Ella and Saul try to help her solve the mystery of what happened to her teenage daughter, who disappeared and was never heard from again. As Ella and Saul spend more and more time together, emotions for both of them are stirred and fight as they might to ignore these feelings, the feelings take over. They each share slowly with each other the cause for their scars. Their bond grows but deep fears remain.
If Allisa Callen is a writer who you have read before you might recognize various characters in this book from others she has written. Her town of Woodlea has been the center of other books, each book is linked through the various characters.
It’s interesting to read her stories and stumble across a character that you already know from a previous book. As you read more of her books, you start to know the town of Woodlea and those that live there, and that makes you feel as if you are somehow a part of the town and its people.
Allisa’s books are very easy to read with characters that are fun to get to know.
