Sara Langdon has returned home to Angel Falls a year after her fiancee broke up with her two days before their wedding. She can’t help but blame his best man Colton for not keeping him on the straight and narrow, instead letting him fall for the girl who jumped out of the cake. Sara is now back after finishing her residency and partners up with her father at his medical practice, while living with her grandmother who has just started showing signs of dementia. When she has to sew Sheriff Colton Walker’s arm closed she has to face her past a little sooner than she’d like. She and Colton have known each other since childhood and have never gotten along, but there was always an underlying tension and now that she’s single, that tension is of the sexual variety.
Then There Was You is your typical enemies to lovers trope and Sara and Colton take their time fighting before they get to the lovers part. It creates a nice tension to their story, but also gives the reader a little time to get to know their pasts and why they always hated each other. Sara’s reason for being back in Angel Falls is a great subplot and humanizes Sara making her more three dimensional. Without dealing with the effects of dementia on a family, as well as learning how to partner with her father in a medical practice I think she would have been just like a lot of other romance heroines, pretty vanilla. Instead we see all that Sara’s got going on in her life, and there is a lot of it! She deals with those problems, while still agonizing over Colton and his behavior towards their budding relationship.
If we had not gotten those family subplots for both Sara and Colton I think I wouldn’t have liked this book as much as I did. There were a few moments between them as a couple that were pretty cliche, but how they dealt with their families, and then each other at the end of the book rounded out their characters and made me like them as a couple. There were a few moments where I wanted to kick Colton in the rear, but that added to the tension in the book very nicely. If you are a fan of Miranda Liasson’s you will love this book- it’s a good start to a brand new series. ❤️❤️❤️❣️
