    DNFI usually like small town romance Recently I enjoyed Securing Zoey by Susan Strokes I was looking forward with The Country Guesthouse At about 60%, I give up What does not work for me is the pace of the story It is so dragging Too slow and too boring I even fall asleep listening to the audiobook I hate to shelved book under DNF Only with a book that is really bad or does not fit my taste, I have to shelved it with DNF 2 stars

    Carr mixed in an oversized dog, a heart wounded man, a sweet boy and an overwhelmed yet strong heroine.Then Carr placed them in Sullivan s Crossing and let things unfold She gave us laughter, suspense, tender moments and all the feels Even though I felt the romance was subdued in this story, yet I still felt the relationship grow and connected with the characters.It was great to back in Sullivan s Corner I love Sully, and all the folks who call it home When trouble threatens the young child, Carr mixed in an oversized dog, a heart wounded man, a sweet boy and an overwhelmed yet strong heroine.Then Carr placed them in Sullivan s Crossing and let things unfold She gave us laughter, suspense, tender moments and all the feels Even though I felt the romance was subdued in this story, yet I still felt the relationship grow and connected with the characters.It was great to back in Sullivan s Corner I love Sully, and all the folks who call it home When trouble threatens the young child, they all step in to help The suspense tread was nice, and I even appreciated that Carr didn t use cliched characters, particularly with the brother Everyone is worthy of redemption in my book Just because their cover is worn and a lot of their story doesn t look promising, those final chapters haven t been written gets down of soapbox The story touches on grief, family, love, and community It delivers sweet romance that has little drama thanks to a suspenseful thread that will keep you flipping the pages This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewer

    I am such a huge fan of Carr s I can t put her books down once I start reading them This one was no different I love the drama and the ending was to die for You are going to fall in love with the three main characters I am on pins and needles waiting for Carr s next book.This can be read as a stand alone.

    The Country Guesthouse is the fifth book in Robyn Carr s Sullivan s Crossing series, and as with all the books in the series it works perfectly fine as a standalone novel Although you get to see characters from the prior books in this one, it is not necessary to have read their stories to enjoy this one it s simply an added bonus.Although I did enjoy The Country Guesthouse, I m going to be honest and say it s not my favourite in the series I powered through it in a single sitting, as I do wi The Country Guesthouse is the fifth book in Robyn Carr s Sullivan s Crossing series, and as with all the books in the series it works perfectly fine as a standalone novel Although you get to see characters from the prior books in this one, it is not necessary to have read their stories to enjoy this one it s simply an added bonus.Although I did enjoy The Country Guesthouse, I m going to be honest and say it s not my favourite in the series I powered through it in a single sitting, as I do with all Robyn Carr books, but this one didn t quite wow me to the same degree as the other books in the series.As always, Robyn Carr takes a real issue and pulls you into the story You quickly connect to the characters and find yourself desperate to see how their stories come together However, with this one, I found myself wantingIt was great to see how things developed, but there were certain elements of the story I would have liked to have seenof, there were certain elements I would have liked to have been givendepth.There is no doubt it was an enjoyable read and I loved how things played out, but this isn t my number one Robyn Carr read For fans of Sullivan s Crossing, however, The Country Guesthouse is a nice addition to the series
