Then There Was You by Miranda Liasson
Publisher: Forever (May 29, 2018)
Series: Spikonos Brothers, 1
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Welcome to Angel Falls, a town so delightful even enemies can't help falling in love!

Angel Falls is the last place Sara Langdon wants to be. Her hometown may be charming, but it's also filled with memories of her "wedding-that-never-was." Yet Sara's grandmother needs her, and joining her dad at his medical practice gives Sara time to figure out what she wants for her future. But when her first patient turns out to be Colton Walker, the man who sabotaged her wedding, Sara starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to escape her past.

As police chief, Colton Walker is devoted to his small town, and he's equally determined to avoid its newest resident. He and Sara have always gotten along like oil and water, and since the bachelor party incident, he's her Enemy #1. But after sharing an unexpected--and unexpectedly hot--kiss, Colton starts to wonder if the woman he's always fighting with is the one he should be fighting for.

Pat's Review:

This is the first book in a new series set in Angel Falls, Ohio. It is a second chance love story that made me cry, and I wanted to shake Sara and Colt to get them to talk to each other.

Dr. Serafina Langdon (Sara) is an Ivy League trained physician who has returned to her home town, working with her Dad at his medical practice and helping to take care of her grandmother, Nonna, who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Sara had left Angel Falls for a practice out west after her fiancĂ©, Tagg, left her at the alter. She blamed his best man, Colton Walker (Colt) for the disaster. Planning to avoid him was impossible when he showed up in the ER her first night on call with a severe laceration that needed stitches. Chief Walker was chasing a suspect under a fence and arrived to the ER with a bloody laceration. Sara felt guilty, but the stitching and Tetanus shot was a little enjoyable for her at least.

Colt hated what happened to Sara thanks to his best friend Tagg. He has never told the truth of what happened that night, trying not to hurt her more. He has also has been attracted to her since high school. Colt is his sister’s guardian after their parents died, Hannah is a teenager in high school and is the cause of a lot of craziness in his life. Now, there is Sara.

I loved the Sunday family dinners with Nonna, Sara’s two sisters and brother, each with showing up with their own stories. But I especially enjoyed the growing love between Sara and Colt. Ms. Liasson has captured the lost hope and sadness of this terrible disease, and what a difference a life surrounded by family, love and protection can do to make a difference.
