Synopsis: "In Eternity Springs: The McBrides of Texas, New York Times bestselling author Emily March presents a brand new arc set in the Lone Star State that features a family-linked trilogy within the author's romantic series.
With his smooth talk, rugged good looks, and deep pockets, native Texan Boone McBride appears to be a man who has it all. Few people know about the heartbreak behind his decision to leave home, family, and career for the isolation of a small town in the Colorado Rockies. Luckily, time and life in Eternity Springs has worked its healing magic upon his wounded soul, so when he meets obviously troubled Hannah Dupree, Boone sees a chance to pay his good fortune forward. The last thing he anticipates is tumbling into love.
Tragedy has taken everything Hannah loves, and her will to keep going is failing. So when Boone strides into her life determined to save her, it’s easier to go along with him than to resist. Soon she is drawn into the fabric of life in Eternity Springs, and as her spirit begins to heal, her strength returns, and she’s able to go toe-to-toe with this hardheaded, big-hearted Texan. But just when love blooms and happiness is within their grasp, shadows from the past threaten. Hannah and Boone must stand strong and united in order to defeat old ghosts—if they are to create a brand-new life together."
My Review: I have really been enjoying the McBrides of Texas branch off the Eternity Spring series even though I never read the original series. With that said, this book was a bit of a struggle without that original series of background information. But when you break it down and just focus on the story between Hannah and Boone, it was an emotional and really engrossing story. It would hit you hard with emotion and then lighten up a bit, then hit you hard again but all the while raising the hope. I really enjoyed the twist on a classic romance trope, I can't really give it away because that would be spoilers, even one I am not usually a huge fan of. The story seemed to fly by and while it was a satisfying conclusion, I did want more time with them. I will say though there are some very hard hitting topics in this book and I would advise anyone who might be a sensitive reader to check into any trigger warnings before picking it up.
My Rating: I have been enjoying this series and this one might have been one of my favorites so far, I really enjoy Boone as a character, he is definitely a hero you can fall for. I give this one a rating of Three Paws and a Stump Wag.
I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley, the above is my honest review and opinion.
