Country Guesthouse
by Carr, Robyn

A woman unexpectedly raising her sister's son and a man mourning his own child discover healing and community support through their mutual love of the orphaned boy. By the award-winning author of the Virgin River series. 300,000 first printing.

In Carr's fifth novel set in the lakeside world of Sullivan's Crossing in the Colorado Rockies, Hannah Russell plans to visit a lovely vacation rental for a two-week getaway from her job in Minneapolis and to cope with her second broken engagement. Her plans change when her best friend unexpectedly dies, and she becomes guardian to her son, Noah, a five-year-old with cerebral palsy. Owen Abrams, a photographer and owner of the vacation rental, along with his Great Dane, Romeo, are there. Noah and Romeo instantly bond, while Hannah and Owen become friends and are greatly attracted to each other. Tensions rise when Noah's grandmother inexplicably attempts to get custody of him, and other mysteries arise. Good people saving a child, a feisty boy overcoming his disabilities, and friendship between people who had survived tragedy are some of the feel-good elements readers expect from Carr, and all make for warm and fuzzy feelings as the plot expands to include other characters, including Owen's ex-wife and, when they come to visit, her new family.
