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.

I have loved every book by Karey White that I have read - and Broken Things to Mend is no exception. Her stories are always sweet and heartfelt - the struggles that her characters face are real, the characters' emotions and struggles are realistic, and the characters are well-developed. I couldn't help but fall in love with Celia and Silas - they both have difficult pasts, pain that not only is carried with them but that has affected who they are today. While they both have their struggles, they are also both strong, determined individuals who want to rise above their troubles. But, the most important thing they share, that is the basis on which their love is able to grow, is that they are geniunely good people, trying to do what is right and to help others. They aren't perfect, but they are able to work together to make the best of their situations and find happiness together.
