Jeremiah has found his garden of Eden
Reviewed in the United States on June 30, 2021
I have wondered about Dr. Jeremiah Wheeler since he first appeared in the Guardian series. He is a psychiatrist with a bad boy edge to him. He is good at what he does and now we know why he is so relatable to the patients he treats. He has endured a lot and Ms. Michaels takes on his journey from prison psychiatrist to small-town hero and on to a valuable member of Guardian. His journey wasn't easy, but then again, Ms. Michaels doesn't write easy stories for her characters. He comes from money and when I read that I was surprised. He doesn't come off that way at all. Neither does his hard-working sister.
Eden Wade is the heroine in the story and she is amazing in her own right. Her story is a bit sad but she is strong. All of Ms. Michaels's females are strong, amazing women in their own right. I liked her immediately, she is sassy, smart, and doesn't put up with baloney.
I loved this book and the love story that unfolds. There were some very sweet scenes as well as some sad ones. Ms. Michaels can make you laugh or cry, sometimes all in the same chapter. I enjoyed reading about the town of Hollister and meeting its townspeople. It's like meeting new friends and being invited to coffee with them. Ms. Michaels sucks you in and holds you to the last page and well beyond that to the next story. I know I have to pick a day when I can read the whole book without interruptions. It's too hard to leave the story when you are in its grips. It begs to be read in one sitting.
