The New York Times bestselling author returns to Mystic Creek, Oregon, with a story about finding an unforgettable love just around the corner. . . .
When a favorite customer on his delivery route needs a favor, Tanner Richards agrees to help without a second thought. The last thing he expects is to face off against the man’s spitfire granddaughter.
Crystal Malloy is near her breaking point. Her beloved grandfather constantly skirts the rules at the retirement center where he’s recovering from surgery. She’s caring for his escape artist dog, even if it means abandoning her salon customers, and she has no time for a romantic attraction to the handsome new stranger.
After Tanner’s reassigned to Mystic Creek, Crystal can no longer ignore how much she misjudged the man’s good intentions. She has known too much sorrow to easily open her heart, but she can’t deny that Tanner and his children could gift her with a happiness beyond compare—if only she can forgive herself for the past and accept that she’s deserving of such a love.
Catherine Anderson writes such beautiful romances. Her characters are always so well-developed and the settings of her stories are indescribably poetic. So, when I was given the opportunity to read and review the fourth book her in her Mystic Creek series, how on earth could I say no?
Spring Forward is the epitome of what a contemporary romance should be. It’s a slow-paced, deep and complex situation that’s outcome somehow seems so… simple. The characters are just what you’d expect, and their chemistry is electric. The town of Mystic Creek plays like a secondary character in the story, and the plot is driven by hesitation and one’s inability to choose happiness for themselves for fear of being hurt. But it’s when they finally allow themselves to be vulnerable that the story finally takes life, and is wrapped up like beautiful written prose.
Tanner and Crystal are a wonderful couple, and their story is breath-takingly refreshing. It’s an adorable pairing, and one that will garner a few laughs along the way.
Anytime you’re looking for a fantastic romance read, Catherine Anderson is the way to go.
