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
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.
This is an emotion filled story and both main characters have some serious things to overcome. Boone has worked through MOST of his trauma and Hannah is more at the beginning of her healing. With Boone having gone through so much already, it tended to give him a tenderness and compassion for other people. His legal skills are now being used in other avenues.
There is a fairly large cast of people and at one point I had to go back and forth to re-read who was connected to who. I don't enjoy that so much.
I commend the author for how detailed the town, businesses and surrounding area is. But it also began to feel a lot like the details were overtaking the story a bit. Like, I was going on a guided tour of my own. For me, I began to not like that as much.
The story does have a good H.E.A. though.
