Evan Chance has just turned 35, and his life has just blown up around him.

He was a successful lawyer in Oregon, being mentored by the managing partner who expected Evan would eventually succeed him, and engaged to beautiful, smart, ambitious fellow attorney Tessa. Then his mother sent him the "life goals list" he wrote when he was twelve, his mentor died suddenly, and he discovered how nakedly ambitious Tessa really was.

He decided he couldn't get out of there fast enough. He takes a sabbatical, gets his motorcycle out of his parents' garage in rural Oregon, and heads out to accomplish item one on his list: motorcycle across the country.

Evan isn't out of Oregon when he hits a dog, and asks the local police chief, who happens to be passing by, where to find the local vet. The police chief indulges a misguided sense of humor, and Evan meets Caitlyn Sorenson, the local doctor.

Caitlyn is staying put. Evan is only staying until the damage to his bike is repaired. And he definitely doesn't intend to keep the stray dog he hit. Definitely not. He's going to find the poor dog's owner.

But Evan is stuck until his bike is fixed, and he's a social guy who makes connections.

I like Evan and Caitlyn, and many of her neighbors. It's a small, close-knit town where her grandfather was the previous doctor. If it seems her parents may not have been quite so likable, well, we don't have to meet them. And as Evan meets people, and puts up posters trying to find the owner of the dog he hit, people keep calling him offering him everything he might need, if he came to his senses and decided to stay.

I enjoyed getting to know Caitlyn, Evan, and the town.

Recommended for a pleasant, fun romance.

I received a free electronic copy of this book from the author, and am reviewing it voluntarily. ( )
