My rating: 4 of 5 gargoyles
This was a different book, at least in the reason the two initially meet up. I really liked the fact that Evan’s rescue of Grace at the beginning of the book had such an impact on both of their lives (saving Grace and destroying his surgeon career) and that Grace was so touched by his efforts to save her, she never stopped looking for him.
Evan I think had the most growing up to do though. He’s definitely more of a bachelor type for much of the book, despite having been almost married once before (and his ex was quite a piece of work), but it was delightful to see him continually pulled not just toward Grace, but toward Red River itself despite the fact that his gaze has always been on bigger and better things (as far as his career).
The resolution was nice as well, and I loved how these two finally fell in love and made it official. It wasn’t overly angsty in most places, which is always a plus.
