About the Book
Drew Westfall wants nothing more than to forget what he had to do in the name of "smart" business. Cutting off all ties with his parents—including handing over the entire contents of his trust fund to a charity—he takes off for Bridger, Colorado where his best friend has an extra room for him. It doesn't take long for him to realize that his business degree won’t do him much good in a town as small as Bridger, but he's broke and has nowhere else to go.

Eden Torresi has every reason to wallow. Not only did she have to sell her house to pay for her mother’s medical expenses, but she also had to drop out of school and is in a relationship with a guy unwilling to commit. But Eden isn't the wallowing type. Instead, she chooses to spend most of her time taking care of the seniors at Silver Linings Assisted Living. When she learns that her boyfriend's new roommate is down on his luck, her caring nature makes her want to reach out to him and offer what help she can. But the more time they spend together, the more complicated things get, especially when the seniors of Silver Linings decide to play matchmaker.

My Thoughts
What a sweet story! Eden's interactions with everyone around her made me just love her! She cares so much about the residents at the Assisted Living home—and they care about her just as much. Some of the residents were hilarious! As Drew and Eden got closer, I really loved the two of them together. The "love triangle" aspect was a little different in that I liked the other guy too! Eden's relationship with her mom was really special too. It was such a tender story line, and I got misty a few times reading about them as her mom got worse.

Silver Linings is another clean romance novel that I am happy to recommend without any reservations! [4.5 stars]

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my fair and honest review.

Sneak Peek
Eden opened the door and hopped out. “I’ll be just a second, if you want to stay out here.”

Drew could tell a non-invitation when he heard one, so he nodded. He did get out of the car—where somehow it was less cold—and stomped his feet a few times while she walked up the stairs, a firm grip on the rail. She disappeared through the door.  A few minutes later, she came out, the worry lines back on her face. Instinctively, he moved closer, but before he could say anything, her heel slipped out from under her and she slid down several stairs. He rushed over to stop her fall, catching her just before she fell down the last three steps.

“Are you okay?” Drew’s heart pounded with adrenaline.

She moaned and used the railing and his hand to pull herself up to standing. “Guess I should have scraped and salted those this morning.”

“Your landlord doesn’t do it?”

She let out a short, humorless laugh. “No.” He noticed her limping when they started toward the car and he slid his arm around her waist.

“Do you need to go get that looked at? Did you break something?”

“No. I just twisted my knee. It’ll be okay. This happens like once a week.”

Drew stopped walking and stared at her in disbelief. Once a week?

“I’m fine. Really. But we’ve got to go before it gets too late. Thank you, though.” She glanced up at him and Drew’s breath caught in his throat. The sunlight kissed her pale hair, skin, and eyes, reminding Drew once again of an angel. She was so beautiful. So kind. And so taken.

He forced himself to step back and pretended nothing weird had just happened by running a hand through hair still slick with the gel he’d put in it after his shower. He discreetly wiped gel off onto his pants. “So, Silver Linings?”

“Yes. Silver Linings.” She wouldn’t meet his eyes, and he didn’t think it was his imagination that she sounded breathless too.
