A Ripple Effect Romance NovellaDrew Westfall wants nothing more than to forget what he had to do in the name of "smart" business. Cutting off all ties with his parents—including handing over the entire contents of his trust fund to a charity—he takes off for Bridger, Colorado where his best friend has an extra room for him. It doesn't take long for him to realize that his business degree won’t do him much good in a town as small as Bridger, but he's broke and has nowhere else to go.Eden Torresi has every reason to wallow. Not only did she have to sell her house to pay for her mother’s medical expenses, but she had to drop out of school and is in a relationship with a guy unwilling to commit. But Eden isn't the wallowing type. Instead, she spends most of her time taking care of the seniors at Silver Linings Assisted Living. When she learns that her boyfriend's new roommate is down on his luck, she reaches out to offer what help she can. But the more time they spend together, the more complicated things get, especially when the seniors of Silver Linings decide to play matchmaker.
Silver Linings is a great follow up to Home Matters. It stays with the pattern good clean romance between two amazing characters. Eden Torresi seems to be the perfect person - but her refusal to accept help may be her downfall. Drew doesn't know what it's like to do a good deed until he meets Eden, but once he sees what it can do to other's lives and even his own, he's on board to find out more.
The people that live at Silver Linings Assisted Living really helped make this book memorable. They were sneaky little busy bodies that couldn't keep their noses in their own business - and it's fantastic!! They really are a major catalyst to everything coming together. On the downside, the other catalyst is Eden's mother - a woman who is very ill but determined to see her daughter happy and living her own life.
This was a very quick and sweet read. Lots of romance, lots of great characters and a story that doesn't let you down.
