Sage Anderson feels broken after a trauma in her life, which was so bad she gave up being a pediatric doctor. Moving to Eternity has helped a little, but the darkness remains deep inside of her. When her nightmares are so bad she can’t sleep, she paints in red and black all night to bury the memories.

Colt Rafferty has come to spend a weekend of fishing with his father. He wants some time out, from his working life, a refuge from the tragedy he deals with which is sucking his life away. He can’t help but notice the mysterious, striking red-head, whose secrets he’d love to unravel.

Sage tries to avoid the new man in town, it doesn’t matter how much she’s drawn to him, because she has too many unhappy memories in her mind. She soon realizes, Colt, is not a man easy to avoid, as he’s also very easy on the eye and very persistent.

HUMMINGBIRD LAKE is a great tale with very interesting characters I found it hard not to like. Eternity seems to be the place to go if you’re in need of nurturing. It is a small township with a warm welcome to all, tourists, travelers and locals, plus many clever artisans. The scenery is described in a way, you will take the memory of mountains and hills back home with you at the books ending. The trout are hard to hook but satisfying when they do.

Sage and Colt are both stubborn which makes getting them together a hard road to tread for their friends. Colt is determined to catch Sage, but like his fishing skills hooking her, could be fraught with many dangers.

This book is an ideal tale to relax with, in a comfy chair, as it has many things to recommend it.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
