A country romance for all ages, “Moving On: A Prairie Romance” by Annette Bower is a cozy read. The type of novel that gives readers an escape into a world where helpful neighbors are abundant and the strife of daily living is soothed by the gentleness of a country lifestyle.

Anna Jenkins and Nick Donnelly have each become the unexpected beneficiaries of property owned by their families in Regina Beach. For Anna, a trained nurse from Toronto who had been adopted, the windfall is a gift she was lucky enough to receive from being accepted by the right family. For Nick, a former peacekeeper in the Canadian Army, the Donnelly land along with the local bed and breakfast isn’t an inheritance he feels he earned from his father Jack and his grandfather Henry but was passed down to him, and he wasn’t even sure if he wanted the responsibility.

Bower paints a picturesque world in Regina Beach where integrity for one’s work is a requirement and raising a good family is a priority. Working the land is an everyday occurrence and a necessity for the families of Regina Beach. Everything is homespun, homemade and done with love. The peaceful aesthetics of the rustic town shows few flaws until the tension between Anna and Nick stir up its tranquility.

Anna is fearful of dogs, a remnant of being attacked by one as a child and Nick is the proud owner of one very big, black and gentle dog named Molly. Nick has a hidden wound as well. His prosthetic leg keeps him from engaging in an intimate relationship with a woman.

How Anna and Nick overcome their insecurities and give themselves the license to fall in love takes on a real life tone or tempest as the case becomes. Their interaction gives these characters an authenticity that warms the reader’s hearts welding the homey feel of Jillian Hart and a sense of family values reminiscent of Sherryl Woods. “Moving On: A Prairie Romance” is a cozy story that readers can cuddle up with during a moment of privacy.

Book description
Anna is a mysterious woman that has just moved to Regina Beach. The residents of the small town know everyone’s business and they are very interested in discovering Anna’s secrets. Nick was a Sergeant in the Canadian Army, doing active duty until a horrific accident sent him home to recover. He helps Anna feel safe and comfortable in her new environment, just as he has always done for his men in strange, dangerous places. Meanwhile, he focuses on preparing for his future physical endurance test to prove that he is capable of returning to active duty.

Anna doesn’t talk about her past, and Nick doesn’t talk about his future therefore she is shocked to discover that his greatest wish is to return to active duty. She won’t love a man who may die on the job again. Intellectually, she knows that all life cycles end, but emotionally, she doesn’t know if she has the strength to support Nick
