Summer Rose, by Elizabeth Sinclair is a interesting contemporary romance book, which features small-town dramas, hidden pregnancy secrets, and adorable animals.
Dr. Hunter Mackenzie is the veterinarian at Paws and Claws Animal Clinic and Wildlife Sanctuary in the little town of Carson, West Virginia. When his assistant quits, Hunter hires Rose Hamilton, who has more experience as a nurse dealing with human patients. Rose is desperate for a job and is determined to succeed at her new position dealing with animal patients.
However, Rose is hiding several secrets, including the fact that she's almost three months pregnant with twins. As the story unfolds, Hunter and Rose deal with their attraction to each other, as well as Hunter's past causing him to not be interested in a read-made family.
Meanwhile, Hunter is constantly dealing with the mayor of Carson trying to shut down the animal sanctuary, despite the mayor's younger son loving the animals and working part-time at the sanctuary.
Since it's the second book in the Hawks Mountain series, it's recommended to start with the first book with the same title as the books series, Hawks Mountain, yet it's not necessary to read the books in order.
Summer Rose is an enthralling story with captivating characters. It's geared towards women readers, particularly those who enjoy reading contemporary romances.
