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.

And for Dakota, that truth allows him to find the home and family he's always wanted.

Review quote

"A beautifully crafted plot with multiple story lines, relatable characters, and a setting that makes readers want to head for the Rockies add up to another solid title. Like many of Carr's books, it will appeal to romance and women's fiction fans alike." -Library Journal on THE FAMILY GATHERING"A moving tale about the power of love, familial bonds and finding a safe and loving place to call home." -The National Examiner on The Family Gathering"The second title in RITA Award-winning and best-selling Carr's splendid Sullivan's Crossing series.... Carr addresses serious problems realistically and sympathetically while seamlessly weaving them into the fabric of her engrossing story. Characters from the first installment pop in and out like old friends." -Booklist, starred review on ANY DAY NOW"An enjoyable read that showcases Carr's exceptional storytelling abilities and her keen eye for detail. This particular story is about overcoming demons and forging a new life. Readers will be able to relate to the compelling heroine and her struggles.... This is a perfect feel-good read to curl up in a chair with while visiting for the first time or revisiting the folks of Sullivan's Crossing." -RT BOOK REVIEWS on ANY DAY NOW"Insightfully realized central figures, a strong supporting cast, family issues, and uncommon emotional complexity make this uplifting story a heart-grabber that won't let readers go until the very end.... A rewarding (happy) story that will appeal across the board and might require a hanky or two." -Library Journal, starred review on What We Find"Robyn Carr has done it again... What We Find is complex, inspirational, and well-written. A romance that truly inspires readers as life hits them the hardest." -San Francisco Review Journal"With this tale of the soothing splendor of the land and our vulnerability, Carr sets the bar for contemporary romance. The well-paced plot, engaging and well-defined characters, and an inviting setting make Carr's latest an enhancement not only to the romance shelves but to any fiction collection." -Booklist, starred review, on What We Find"A layered, well-paced plot and flawed, three-dimensional characters whom readers will care about make this a quick and entertaining read for those who relish contemporary family sagas with strong female characters as well as readers who like their stories tinged with romance." -Library Journal on The Life She Wants"No one can do small-town life like Carr." -RT Book Reviews on The Wanderer
