Drew 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 also 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 chooses to spend 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, her caring nature makes her want to reach out to him and 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.
I just loved this story! Both of the main characters are so likable. Eden is such a kind and giving person, it's no wonder Drew is attracted to her. I also loved how Home Matters, the first book in the Ripple Effect Romance Series) connects with this second book. Readers met Drew briefly at the end of the first novella. We also get to see Olivia and Pete. I hope that the rest of the series also connects characters the same way.
Even with how much I love Eden and Drew, the residents at the senior living center made me smile so much! They brought so much humor to this story. I love their shenanigans as they work together to bring the main characters together. There are also many tender moments in this story between Eden and her mother who is dying from cancer. Eden sacrifices so much so she can spend as much time with her Mom as possible.
Kaylee Baldwin has written a sweet love story, with great humor woven in-between.She knows how to write a clean romance with a memorable story. So far I'm loving the Ripple Effect Romance Novella Series. I know that there will be more great stories ahead.
