About the Book
In the first entry in the Madison River Romance series, Keira Knudsen gets the traveling opportunity of a lifetime, but when she reunites with her first love, Robbie, she learns that even a wandering heart needs a home….
No one in the quaint town of West Yellowstone, Montana knows that unassuming geography teacher Keira Knudsen moonlights as sensational travel blogger Kat Wanderfull. No one, that is, except for her first love, Robbie Matthews, who has just discovered the woman he is falling for online is the same one that broke his heart five years ago.
But Robbie has another problem: the mother of his daughter, Anabelle, has resurfaced after a three-year absence determined to rip Anabelle away from him. Robbie needs a steady paycheck for a chance at custody, and now, on the eve of a grand adventure that could give Keira a chance to flee her old, troubled life once and for all, she is in need of assistance.
With so much broken trust between them, Keira and Robbie must keep an arms-length away to make this partnership work. But the more time they spend together, exploring majestic places and sharing new experiences, the closer they get–until their secrets and dreams threaten to cost them everything.
In My Opinion
On the surface, this book looks like it will be a sweet and enjoyable read. It is that but it also digs to depths I wasn’t expecting. Ones carved by deep emotional wounds.
Kiera hasn’t had the most wonderful life but moonlighting as Kat Wanderfull and posting photos of the places she travels opens up the world and doors she never imagined. It also brings Robbie, her first love, and his daughter back into her orbit.
With a back and forth a la You’ve Got Mail, Kiera opens up to Robbie without realizing who she is talking to. With Kiera’s rocky family relationships, an opportunity of a lifetime, a custody battle Robbie is embroiled in, and gorgeous settings, Janine Rosche’s debut is one you do not want to miss.
