Silver Linings by Kaylee Baldwin Review/Tour Giveaway

Updated Silver

Silver Linings by Kaylee Baldwin Drew Westfall wants nothing more than to forget what he had to do in the name of "smart" business. Cutting off all ties with his parents—including handing over the entire contents of his trust fund to a charity—he takes off for Bridger, Colorado where his best friend has an extra room for him. It doesn't take long for him to realize that his business degree won’t do him much good in a town as small as Bridger, but he's broke and has nowhere else to go. Eden Torresi has every reason to wallow. Not only did she have to sell her house to pay for her mother’s medical expenses, but she also had to drop out of school and is in a relationship with a guy unwilling to commit. But Eden isn't the wallowing type. Instead, she chooses to spend most of her time taking care of the seniors at Silver Linings Assisted Living. When she learns that her boyfriend's new roommate is down on his luck, her caring nature makes her want to reach out to him and offer what help she can. But the more time they spend together, the more complicated things get, especially when the seniors of Silver Linings decide to play matchmaker.

Author Kaylee Baldwin When Kaylee Baldwin isn’t writing, she’s usually chasing after her four children, checking her email, trying to get motivated to train for that race she shouldn’t have signed up for, hanging out with her pretty awesome husband, and reading whatever good book she can find. She graduated from Arizona State with degree in English Lit. Her published books are Meg’s Melody, Six Days of Christmas (part of the All I Want collection) and Silver Linings.

My Review: I really enjoyed this second installment in the Ripple Effect Romance Series. I love what it says at the very beginning:
"Like a pebble tossed into calm water,
a simple act can ripple outward
and have a far-reaching effect on 
those we meet
perhaps setting a life on a 
different course--
one filled with excitement, 
adventure, and sometimes even 
Each of these books has a character or two who show up from a previous book. I kept looking for someone from Home Matters, but didn't find them until towards the end, but it was perfect how they fit into the story.

Eden is such a nurturing, selfless person and most of her decisions are based on how it will affect those around her. She works at Silver Linings, a retirement home, and cares for a very sick mother. She's in a convenient relationship and although she wants more, she doesn't want to make waves to get it...until Drew slides into her life.

Drew is fantastic as well. He comments that he's from riches to rags, willing to give up all of his money in order to help those around him. He cares more for people than money. He's got a lot of self-control and restraint. He's definitely a man of his word.

As much as I loved Eden, Drew, and even Jace, I loved the people at Silver Linings. The scheming and planning was hilarious and perfect for the story.

Content: no language; no violence; some kissing. Clean!
