In Emily March’s new novel set in her beloved Eternity Springs, a woman who has given up on dreams of a family meets a man who needs her to complete his own.
Town physician Rose Anderson hides a well of sadness behind her cheerful and capable professionalism. Heartbreak has only reinforced her belief that marriage and children aren’t in her future. Yet she’s a woman with a pulse—and when sexy, brooding artist Hunt Cicero shows up at her office with his young nephew, the sheer physical attraction he ignites in her is both exciting and unsettling.
Hunt has an artist’s passionate temperament and a bachelor’s lifestyle. So when he becomes guardian to his sister’s children, he’s riddled with conflict—and in way over his head. Without Rose and her warm maternal instincts, he’d be lost. Still, she’s a woman who guards her own heart, and he’s a novice when it comes to commitment. Can the healing magic of Eternity Springs shine on this patchwork family and allow Hunt and Rose to trust that love is the fabric holding them together?
In Teardrop Lane (Eternity Springs #9), Emily March takes us back to small town Eternity Springs with Rose and Cicero’s story. Rose Anderson is a physician who has moved to Eternity Springs to join her sister and for a fresh start. Despite a past that filled with heartache and pain, Rose always has a smile for everyone.
Hunt Cicero is a glass artist who also moved to Eternity Springs for business reasons. He is a man who is dedicated to his craft and open only to short-term relationships, which he plans to pursue with Rose. Both Rose and Cicero have baggage from their pasts, they are very independent and like their lives just as they are, so Cicero is completely unprepared and out of his depth when he has to step in as guardian to his foster sister’s four young children and he reaches out for help from his friends and the community at large. Rose and Cicero find themselves getting to know each another while juggling the kids, very much like a married couple.
This is my first book by Emily March and I love that she made Eternity Springs a great place, with a great sense of community and people willing to step up and provide support when needed. I enjoyed reading Teardrop Lane for many reasons. The leisurely and deliberate pace of the story was welcome. The inclusion of the children’s subplot help make the entire story something more than an ordinary romance. Rose and Cicero’s stories were really emotional and I know that I cried in several spots View Spoiler »especially when the children’s future was uncertain and it seemed like they would not have their happy ending. « Hide Spoiler. However, there were also cute things, like the nicknames they had for each other especially Doctor Mom and Uncle Hunk. I will definitely be catching up on the rest of the stories in the series!
