What happens when you get everything you’ve worked for, only to discover it’s not what you really want?
Dan O’Leary worked night and day to finish law school, join a top firm, and make partner all before the age of thirty-five. He’s found a man who swept him off his feet, and his best friend of twenty years has his back.
His growing discontent with his job has Dan considering a change, but a series of betrayals, professional and personal, lead Dan to reconsider his whole life.
Making a fresh start, Dan meets the people of Blue Ridge, Georgia, including Chief of Police Nick Oliver, and, perhaps, finds a new home. But danger from his old life follows him and puts not only his life, but that of his new friends, at risk.
I have had this book on my TBR list for quite some time. I have been passing it over because I knew it was the start of a series and I would eventually get to it one day. It was no big deal because maybe, by the time I read it, the next one would be closer to being published. I am of two minds on my behavior. On the one hand, I am glad I waited because the second book is out and I can jump right in. On the other hand, I am kicking myself in the butt because I have been missing out of the fun for so long! I loved this book.
The Broken Road Cafe is the first installment in the Broken Road Cafe series. It is a great beginning and a fun ride. There is sadness but the overall feel of this book is very light. The snark abounds and steals the show. The characters are so fun together and sarcasm is their native language. I found myself belly laughing out loud almost the entire book. I am so happy that book two is out so that I can read more about these characters.
The plot was also interesting. It was written to keep the reader guessing. Every time I thought I had a handle on where the plot was moving, Mr. Webb would introduce another piece of information that made me question everything I was thinking. I quite enjoyed it.
I do have to warn you. As far as the plot is concerned, there is a cliffhanger ending. However, I felt that the ending was designed to show the end of one stage of the men’s relationship and the beginning of the next. The men have met and have agreed to give it a go. The next book will hopefully pick up where this one leaves off and show the relationship developing between these men. I can’t wait for more.
