Sometimes the right decisions are the hardest to make

Shaky marriage. Failing business. Leslie desperately wants to fix both. She’s not so sure her husband’s solution of moving back into the bosom of the family and family farm back in Holmes Crossing.

As daughter of an alcoholic single mom who thought six months in one area was an extended stay, Leslie is not so much with the extended family interactions. But they seem to have no choice so they pack up their two children and off to cows, chickens and Holmes Crossing they go.

Leslie and Dan had agreed it was only for a year so they could reconnect and retrench financially. But once he’s back he starts making noises about staying. A near tragedy challenges Leslie’s ideas about family and community and faith and Leslie has to decide if this truly is The Only Best Place for her and her heart.

My Review:

Content: 5 Stars
Tone: 5 Stars
Prose: 5 Stars

Total: 5 Stars

This book was amazing! Absolutely well-written in a way I haven’t seen in a long time and was able to draw me into a genre I don’t normally read. There are so many layers to this novel that I enjoyed exploring. This was a believable and heartwarming story that hit close to home. I related to the main character on many levels. There are some life lessons that any women would do well to take home after reading “The Only Best Place.” And one of the things I loved most about this novel was that it focuses on an established and committed romance instead of a new and just-flourishing one. The event of finding Mr. Right doesn’t equal a “happily-ever-after.” There are struggles and realities to deal with, and Carolyne shows us how holding onto love and faith will get you through tough times.

I highly recommend “The Only Best Place” for anyone looking for a well-written and heartwarming tale!
