What We Find

Robyn Carr. Mira, $26.99 (384p) ISBN 978-0-7783-1885-9
Carr takes a break from her Thunder Point series to explore the mountains of Colorado in this contemporary, which is filled with set pieces that ring true but largely fail to excite. Talented neurosurgeon Maggie Sullivan, reeling from personal and professional setbacks—most notably a wrongful death lawsuit and a miscarriage —retreats to her father’s home, a campground called Sullivan’s Crossing. She meets Cal Jones, who came to the Crossing with his own issues to sort out, and immediately finds him suspicious. When Maggie’s father suffers a heart attack, Maggie commits to caring for him, and she and Cal grow close as they both try to determine how to be their best selves. For all that readers learn about Maggie and Cal, they still feel underdeveloped as characters, and though there are moments of commotion, including medical crises to a young woman’s abduction, they serve more as opportunities for Maggie to demonstrate her capabilities than anything else. The plodding pace eventually overpowers the pleasant setting and spicy-sweet romance. (Apr.)
