Broken Things to Mend by Karey White

Broken Things to Mend by Karey White
Celia is in desperate need of a change–a change of scenery, a change of pace, and a complete redo of all relationships. Not knowing what else to do, she opens a map, closes her eyes, and lets fate decide her future. Then she packs her meager belongings and buys a one-way ticket to a little town on the fringes of Oregon’s Deschutes National Forest called Sisters. She’s wanted a family for years. Will she find one in Sisters?
What Celia doesn’t plan to find is a strange Chinese woman whose meddling ways keep throwing her in the path of a handsome, but reserved, forest ranger. But no matter how kind or dependable Silas seems to be, there are some things in Celia’s past that neither of them can escape, and this time, the damage might be too much to mend.

My Review

Once I picked up Broken Thing To Mend, I was gone a quickly absorbed in the story, from the first to the last page this one was a page-turner for me.
We all think we have it bad, but Celia has had a very rough time in her short life so far. We hear her early story, and you will have tears in your eyes thinking about how awful it was for her, and then the ultimate violation makes her scramble out of Chicago.
While this book is part of the Matchmaker series, it can stand alone, but so far I’m really enjoying this series. Pearl was instrumental in putting Silas’s parents together, and now she is behind the scenes in arranging a meeting between Celia and Silas.
When things finally work out for them to meet you begin to wonder if Pearls plans are going to work, they don’t seem to like one another. There is another secret that is hanging between them, and again you will feel so bad for Celia.
Story is set in the Sisters Oregon area and we shared the beauty of this place as the backdrop of most of this book. You won’t be disappointed with this one, but keep the tissues handy. We hope for the best and acceptance from all, but we never know until the very end how this one is turns out!
I received this book through I Am A Reader, Not A Writer Book Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
