The Best of Us by Robyn Carr #review #harlequin #romance #fiction


In Sullivan’s Crossing, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr has created a place where good people, powerful emotions, great humor and a healthy dose of common sense are the key ingredients to a happy life. Sullivan’s Crossing brings out the best in people. It’s a place you’ll want to visit again and again.

Dr. Leigh Culver loves practicing medicine in Timberlake, Colorado. It is a much-needed change of pace from her stressful life in Chicago. The only drawback is she misses her aunt Helen, the woman who raised her. But it’s time that Leigh has her independence, and she hopes the beauty of the Colorado wilderness will entice her aunt to visit often.

Helen Culver is an independent woman who lovingly raised her sister’s orphaned child. Now, with Leigh grown, it’s time for her to live life for herself. The retired teacher has become a successful mystery writer who loves to travel and intends to never experience winter again.

When Helen visits Leigh, she is surprised to find her niece still needs her, especially when it comes to sorting out her love life. But the biggest surprise comes when Leigh takes Helen out to Sullivan’s Crossing and Helen finds herself falling for the place and one special person. Helen and Leigh will each have to decide if they can open themselves up to love neither expected to find and seize the opportunity to live their best lives.


Leigh has moved to Timberlake, Colorado to get away from the rat race of a Chicago ER. She has set up a small town practice and has settled in nicely. When love finally finds her, she is not as ready as she thinks!

Leigh is a hard working doctor and she has no intentions of getting involved in relationship. She has been burned before and she is just NOT INTERESTED. But life has a way of changing on you. She meets Rob. Leigh fights this relationship but their connection is just too strong. And to be honest…he is the perfect guy for her. These two (of course) make it work and make it work well!

I have read some serious books lately. I needed a good “fluff” book, or as some people call them “palate cleanser” books. Robyn Carr is one of my favorite go to authors for “fluff”. I have been a huge fan of Robyn Carr for years. She always creates the best characters inside some of the best towns. My favorite character in this book is Sully. Sully and Leigh’s Aunt Helen end up together. There could not be a more perfect pair on this earth than these two. I hope the next Sullivan’s Crossing book includes these two!

I received this novel from Harlequin-Mira via Netgalley for a honest review.
