KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Real and raw and emotionally satisfyingSeptember 8, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you have been following Lisa Carter's Love Inspired novels, you'll be happy to return to Kiptohanock, Virginia and the interesting characters that make up this small town with a big heart. Despite the familiar location and some familiar faces, The Bachelor's Unexpected Family is a standalone story but if you're a fan of the Duer family from previous books, you'll be happy to connect with them again in this one.
Carter explores the complexities of letting go in this emotional novel of love and loss and having the courage to love again. Kristina and Canyon are both living in the past -- in different ways. Kristina is rooted in the memories of her life before her husband's death while Canyon struggles to overcome the sins associated with the Collier name.
Honestly, there were times when I wanted to smack Kristina upside the head because she is so fixated on the past that she can't even see what's in her present never mind the potential of any future. And she's at risk of losing her son over irrational fears that spur her into overprotective mama bear mode. Love how Gray challenges her, goading her into facing truths she's been burying for years. And she's good at drawing him out of his reclusive tendencies. Everyone can see that these two are perfect for each other -- including their teens -- but this hero and heroine don't make it easy on anyone.
Real and raw and emotionally satisfying.

This was my first book to read of Lisa Carter's and I truly enjoyed it! Great characters and storyline! It was very easy to become apart of this story, reading on to see what would happen.
I received a copy of this book from the author, but was not required to give a positive review. This is my honest opinion of this book.
