#Review ~ The Best of Us by Robyn Carr ~ @RCarrWriter @SarahBurningham

My Review:

The Best of Us (Sullivan's Crossing Book 4) by [Carr, Robyn]
I always enjoy my visits to Sullivan's Crossing with Robyn Carr. The Best of Us is a fabulous story that I could not put down. 

Dr. Leigh Culver is one smart, talented, independent lady that I couldn't help but bond with quickly. She's a good doctor, a wonderful niece, and a great friend. She loves her medical practice in the small Colorado town. 

I remembered Rob Shandon from The Family Gathering. I enjoyed getting to know more about Rob. He is one of the good guys. He's a great dad, a caring brother, a great boss, and a good friend to many. He owns the local pub that serves up those yummy foods that sound so good. 

Leigh and Rob's first few meetings are a couple of great scenes. I enjoyed the scene where Leigh is taking care of Rob's teenage son. You can honestly see just how much he loves his sons and how caring of a doctor Leigh is. The next meeting totally reminds me something that could happen to me. Accidentally dumpster diving may not be the best time to ask a girl out on a date but hey it worked for Rob. 

Leigh was raised by her Aunt Helen from a very early age. Not only has Helen been a mother to Leigh she is also a great friend. These two ladies are very close and have a great relationship. 

Sully has been a big part of each of the stories in this series. He has been involved in many of the couple's relationships in the previous books. Sully and Helen form a friendship from their very first meeting. It was so wonderful to see that friendship form into a romance for and more. 

All the characters are wonderful in this book. Rob's sons are a big part of his life so they are a big part of his relationship with Leigh. These boys are sweet and so kind. There is one scene in particular that I found to be so sweet. It really showed that these boys were raised with love and care. 

This is one of those stories that really touched my heart several times. There is so much going on that I just could not wait to see what could possibly happen next and then how in the world was that going to work out. The Best of Us really is shown in all the characters in this book. It is a great title for an incredible story.

The Best of Us is the fourth book in the Sullivan's Crossing series but it stands just fine on its own. If you haven't had the pleasure of reading the previous books in this series you will still enjoy this one. If you have had the pleasure of reading the other books in this series then I know you will enjoy your visit and love catching up with old friends as much as I did. I just love small town romance stories for that very reason. I am always excited to catch up with all those friends I have made in previous books. 

I was given the opportunity to read this fabulous story and it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you.
