Patrick Thompson is all city, all the time. A young doctor, once full of passion, now disillusioned by the practice, he sets off across the country, intent on a small breather before a fresh start.

Ivy Lang loves the country way. So much so that she’s created a place where others can experience her ideas of the fundamentals for both mind and body. The life is perfect for her, carefully cultivated by her own hands.

He’s waiting for something to inspire him.

She finds inspiration all around her.

But when a chance meeting turns their worlds upside down, can they come together to create something beautiful?

This was such a wonderfully heart-warming story that I can't put it into words. I fell in love with Ivy and Patrick. Watching them grow and change as people as well as a couple made for an amazing read. It reminds you that if you are meant to be together, fate will make your destiny happen.

Ivy is such a little spunky thing. It was hard not to like everything about her. She could easily be anyone's best friend. She's a caring woman who is true to herself. She's found what has brought her true happiness and she puts all her energy into it. 

Patrick knows something is missing in his life, he just can't put his finger on it. He's intrigued by Ivy, finding her simple life appealing. He feels an attraction to her he just can't explain. She's different than the other women he knows. 

Of course, they can't do anything the "normal" way, which made their relationship fun and unexpected. When things go from good to horribly bad in one quick accident, their relationship really develops. 

Picturing Patrick trying to milk a goat in this fancy clothes and expensive shoes was too funny not to laugh at. Throughout the entire book, humorous situations like this had me chuckling to myself. 

This book is written in alternating POV. It is a stand alone with an ending that lets you know their relationship is strong and will last the test of time. 

CM Foss is a hopeless romantic with a love for the written word. When she was little, her mom would ration her books so she wouldn’t go through them too quickly. It didn’t matter, she would just re-read. She’s always been an avid equestrian, competing in the top levels of Three Day Eventing by age seventeen. CM now resides in Northern Virginia with her husband and kids where they own and operate their own equestrian business, as well as raising grass-fed, sustainable meats. She doesn’t have this thing people call “free time”, but she does spent a weird amount of time writing, reading, playing with her kids, milking goats, and drinking wine, while avoiding bananas at all costs. Other books by CM Foss include Shiver and Swoon.
