Pat's Review:

Caitlin Timberlake is a fashion designer from New York City. She grew up in Eternity Springs, but after college wanted to spread her wings. It’s been eight years and she is starting to feel the call of home and family. At a destination wedding in Telluride she shares a gondola ride with a handsome stranger and his special needs dog; there is an immediate spark. His name is Josh and he attends the wedding as her plus-one. Caitlin decides that she wants more of this guy, but he turns and walks out of her life. At least he thinks he does.

Josh Tarkington has a lot of secrets and terrible luck. He refuses to become close with anyone, he doesn’t want any more trauma in his life. He runs a gas station/garage in Eternity Springs and is considered quite the catch. Although very attracted to Caitlin, he figures she is heading back to New York and the temptation will soon be gone--WRONG!

Caitlin quits her job, moves back to Eternity Springs with a new plan for her life. She wants to open a day care center, and convince Josh that they belong together. Her parents are skeptical and Josh is scared. But the people of the Springs, especially Celeste, the “guardian angel”of the town, are on their side. His secrets and demons won’t let go of him. But Caitlin will never give up, unless she is forced to.

This charming story can be read as a stand-alone, but the previous books in the series are equally entertaining.
