Then There Was You by Miranda Liasson

Welcome to Angel Falls, a town so delightful even enemies can't help falling in love!

Angel Falls is the last place Sara Langdon wants to be. Her hometown may be charming, but it's also filled with memories of her "wedding-that-never-was." Yet Sara's grandmother needs her, and joining her dad at his medical practice gives Sara time to figure out what she wants for her future. But when her first patient turns out to be Colton Walker, the man who sabotaged her wedding, Sara starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to escape her past.

As police chief, Colton Walker is devoted to his small town, and he's equally determined to avoid its newest resident. He and Sara have always gotten along like oil and water, and since the bachelor party incident, he's her Enemy #1. But after sharing an unexpected--and unexpectedly hot--kiss, Colton starts to wonder if the woman he's always fighting with is the one he should be fighting for.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Sara wasn't sure she wanted to return her hometown but when her Nonna was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, she knew she had no choice. She left a year ago with her head down and shamed because her fiancé called off the wedding the day before.

Colton has always thought highly of Sara and when she moves back to town, he wants to make a move. The only thing is that Sara blames him for her ex leaving her. Colt's done a lot of things, but he's not taking the blame for Tagg's straying.

As Sara and Colt work out their past issues, they both realize that what you really want may be standing right in front of you but it still takes a lot of time and effort to make it work.

Then There Was You is an enemies-to-lovers, small town romance between the doctor (Sara) and a cop (Colton), so for me, the story had a lot going for it before it even began. As I read the book, I liked the family aspects to the story and the small town setting where everyone knows everyone else and their business. I liked Sara’s struggle to gain her father’s respect in the workplace and the way that Colton serves his community as the local police chief.

But from Sara’s first interaction with Colton, we can feel real animosity and hurt on Sara’s part over the way that Colton treated her in the past and this really stuck with me. So as the story develops and we see Colton is a good guy in the here and now (and he really is a good guy), it took me a long time to warm up to him. Then, just when I start liking Colton, he does something weak and stupid and I was back to disliking him.

Sara and Colton’s road to happiness is a rocky one but it has a satisfying conclusion. Then There Was You is an enjoyable read and has plenty of good elements and romance but my dislike of Colton probably kept me from loving this book as much as I thought I would.

Miranda Liasson loves to write stories about everyday people who find love despite themselves, because there’s nothing like a great love story. And if there are a few laughs along the way, even better! She’s a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart winner and an Amazon bestselling author whose heartwarming and humorous small-town romances have won accolades such as the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence and have been Harlequin Junkie and Night Owl Reviews Top Picks.

She lives in the Midwest with her husband and three kids in a charming old neighborhood which is the inspiration for many of the homes in her books.
