Review: I received this advance reader copy courtesy of Netgalley and the publisher. This is the first book of Emily March's that I have read and did not realize that it was part of a series. I liked that the book was able to bring you up to speed on the main characters in the book as well as other characters who you new had a part in the previous series. I felt that even though I have not read a book in this series before Miracle Road I really felt like I lived in this town and was friends with these characters after a couple of chapters in the book.
I thought the author did a great job of building the back story on the two characters so that you knew what got them where they were. I also liked that the book included romance, mystery and even sadness. It really kept you as the reader wanting to find out what happened to Hope's daughter and how Lucca really feels about the accident.
In addition to the main characters story Emily did a good job of introducing the next books character. I am very interested in the reading the next story in the series with Gabrielle as one of the main characters! It will also be interesting to see how she incorporates the past characters into the book. I recommend this book to readers who love book series and romance. If you like Susan Mallery or Robyn Carr's books about a little town you will love Emily March's. Can't wait to go back and read the first 6 books!
