Robyn Carr's The Family Gathering Review and Giveaway

Posted by Susan B James on 3:00:00 AM with 1 comment
Robyn Carr became an overnight success halfway through her Virgin River Series after more than thirty years of writing. She's been on the New York Times' and USA Today's bestseller lists ever since. And with good reason.
Her latest bestseller is The Family Gathering, Book 3 in her Sullivan's Crossing series. I fell in love with this series at first book. I eagerly awaited Dakota's story.It was worth the wait. AND I've scored a copy to give away. (I'm keeping mine.)

Blurb: Having left the military, Dakota Jones is at a crossroads in his life. With his elder brother and youngest sister happily settled in Sullivan’s Crossing, he shows up hoping to clear his head before moving on to his next adventure. But, like every visitor to the Crossing, he’s immediately drawn to the down-to-earth people and the seemingly simple way of life.

Dakota is unprepared for how quickly things get complicated. As a newcomer, he is on everyone’s radar—especially the single women in town. While he enjoys the attention at first, he’s really only attracted to the one woman who isn’t interested. And spending quality time with his siblings is eye-opening. As he gets to know them, he also gets to know himself and what he truly wants.

When all the Jones siblings gather for a family wedding, the four adults are drawn together for the first time in a way they never were as children. As they struggle to accept each other, warts and all, the true nature and strength of their bond is tested. But all of them come to realize that your family are the people who see you for who you really are and love you anyway. And for Dakota, that truth allows him to find the home and family he’s always wanted.

You can read this book as a stand-alone novel, but if you haven't already read them, I'm betting The Family Gathering will lure you into exploring the community Robyn created in Sullivan's Crossing. A Carr book is never just about the main characters.  There are so many glorious side stories. And we finally get to meet Sedona.
There are moments in this book that wrung my heart and others I purely rejoice in. I want more Sullivan's Crossing.

Wishing you a week with a least one unexpected blessing.
