Blurb
Jane Rhynehart has a cosy shack in the pumpkin-obsessed town of Willow Creek, and a new job—if only she was able to write like the other women in the local writers’ group. But how can Jane write the perfect romance when she’s never experienced love? After a lengthy stay in hospital, budding singer and songwriter Sam Marshallends up as a resident in Willow Creek Nursing Home. Jane soon becomes his
guiding light. But how can he be a man for her when he relies on so many others
day-to-day?

Will Sam turn out to be the perfect muse to help Jane write her epic romance?
Will Jane be the one to teach Sam how to truly live? Does love truly know no
barriers?

 

My review:

This was a beautiful story. When Jane starts her job as activities coordinator at a nursing home, she is shocked to find that the resident of room 10 is close to her age. Sam is known for being surly and uncooperative, and keeping to himself in his room. Jane makes it her mission to get him out of his room and socializing with other people. They develop a friendship, and slowly fall in love.

I truly loved this book. Jane is an incredible person – she loved her job of bringing life and happiness to all the residents of the nursing home. Sam really responds to her and opens up about his recovery and his plans before his illness and what he can do going forward. They have a special relationship, a real once in a lifetime kind of love. Jane also helps mend the relationship between Sam and his brother Ben.

This is a book you definitely need to read. Not only is it an incredible love story, it is an eye opening book on life in a resident nursing home that many of us don’t see.

Excerpt
I link my fingers behind Sam’s neck. “He cares about you, Sam.” 
“I’m tryin’ to move forward, get somewhere, be somebody. I just feel like he’s holding me back.”
I look down at our feet and back up to meet his frown. “You seem to be moving ahead just fine to me.” 
“I’m no ballroom dancer.”
I press my lips against his. I delight in a long-lasting kiss until Sam moans in the back of his throat. Reluctantly, I pull back. “Then lucky for the both of us, because I
don’t want a dancer. I want you.”
The song finishes, but we continue to sway, locked tight in each other’s arms. The young girl nods to Shaun and walks offstage as a lady with wild ginger hair in a ruffled denim dress and cowgirl boots takes her place. The woman, who looks to be in her forties, adjusts the microphone to her height, and then plucks the strings of a
mandolin. Her voice crackles as she sings about writing a song, and her tears.
Sam’s arms stiffen around me. “Of all the frickin’ songs, she picks this one by Willie Nelson?”
The lady continues on about sad songs and waltzes. It’s kind of depressing. Ironic, really. I shift my arms around Sam’s waist. 
“I hate country music,” he growls in my ear. 
“The song’s not that bad,” I lie. 
Sam’s mouth moves to my ear. The heat of his breath sends a flood of warmth to my lower belly. “I just wanted this one moment. She’s killin’ me.” 
I tighten my hold around him. “Forget about her.”
Sam grinds his teeth. “How can I? It’s all I can hear.” 
“Then listen to me instead.” I press one hand to the centre of his chest. “We made it, Sam. We made it here to this very spot.”
A lazy smile curls at his mouth. “Now’s not the time to make me weak at the knees, Janie.”
