The Family Gathering by Robyn Carr: New Release with Review

I was sent this book though the publisher and Netgalley.  My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review. 


"Having left the military, Dakota Jones is at a crossroads in his life. With his elder brother and youngest sister happily settled in Sullivan’s Crossing, he shows up hoping to clear his head before moving on to his next adventure. But, like every visitor to the Crossing, he’s immediately drawn to the down-to-earth people and the seemingly simple way of life.

Dakota is unprepared for how quickly things get complicated. As a newcomer, he is on everyone’s radar—especially the single women in town. While he enjoys the attention at first, he’s really only attracted to the one woman who isn’t interested. And spending quality time with his siblings is eye-opening. As he gets to know them, he also gets to know himself and what he truly wants.

When all the Jones siblings gather for a family wedding, the four adults are drawn together for the first time in a way they never were as children. As they struggle to accept each other, warts and all, the true nature and strength of their bond is tested. But all of them come to realize that your family are the people who see you for who you really are and love you anyway. And for Dakota, that truth allows him to find the home and family he’s always wanted.:

I was lucky enough to review some previous works by Robyn Carr and I loved them. When I saw she had a new book coming out, I knew I wanted to read it. I was even more excited when I got to review an ARC copy.

The Family Gathering is actually the third book in the Sullivan Crossing series. However; I read this as a standalone. There is just something special about her writing and the stories she develops. The Family Gathering was no exception. I loved how this story resolved around a retired Army Ranger, Dakota Jones. He has always had a hard time making connections, but has come home and starts to build relationships with his extended family. I really enjoyed the family aspect within the story.

My only critique around this one is that I wanted more! It was really good and I just did not want it to end. I actually have not read the previous books in the series, so I will be going back and starting from the beginning.

Overall, another amazing read and I cannot wait for more.
