Ut to put things in perspective When a blizzard blows through just days before Christmas some are left stranded and others missing Now there's only one thing on Eureka's wish list to live p to its name and its reputation for coming together and find a way to bring everyone back home where they belong. ,
A snowy Christmas romance The Mountain BETWEEN US IS SET IN COLORADO Us is set in Colorado A Tiny Town Where tiny town where leans on each other The dynamics among the residents of Eureka remind me of those in Robyn Carr s Virgin River a focus on family with woodsy macho men who protect strong and emotional women Cindy Meyers gives s DJ and Olivia a former couple who may or may not get back together and Maggie and Jameso a newish couple who have some real obstacles to overcome Throw in a few spinsters a con artist a teenager and a local diner and you have yourself a town I liked how Meyers gave the characters strength and integrity They town I liked how Meyers gave the characters strength and integrity They likable and sweet They held each other The Vampires Bedside Companion up during snowstorms and swindles They lent each other an ear and a shoulder to cry on I also liked the dual romance and the inclusion of extended family I felt like I could depend on these people I trusted them The only thing that disappointed me about this book was the rambling writing Some chapters took way too long to say what they needed to say A good 10% of the verbiage should have been cut to tightenp the writing Because of the long windedness especially in the first half I found myself skipping over entire paragraphs itching to get to the action Nevertheless the writing is excellent and the dialogue flowed naturally The Mountain Between Us is a warm Christmas romance replete with snowstorms love and a strong sense of family Read it beside your Christmas tree with a cup of hot cocoa and you might even hear the jingle bells ARC was provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Had trouble keeping The Highgate Vampire up with the characters Or maybe it didn t keep my interest Was getting the two guys and their girlfriends confused And I could not imagine being that cold on Christmas Eve That would be brutal Felt like I was reading a Hallmark romance movie The Mountain Between Us by Cindy MyersI was excited to be picked to read this book because I have read the other two related stories and love the locale and the charactersThis is the continuing story about Maggie and she was only going to stay a week to settle her father s possessions after he died but she endedp staying Now she is in love with Jameco Clark who s back from the war and runs the local saloonski instructor in season and rides a motorcycleMaggie Stevens is terrified to tell him about the baby she is carrying it is his but she s almost 40 and feels it s too late to start a familyThe story also follows Bob and Olivia both think the Full Disclosure upcoming winter will be a bad oneThe book also follows Lucas Olivia s son likes to do things with DJ and Olivia likes DJ but doesn t want him to knowAnother character is Cassie who runs the library and the annual Founder s Day pageant the telling of the town s history and she wants shelves for the libraryAnd a section also for Lucille the ma.
