Blog Tour ~ After the Rain by Renee Carlino


After The Rain-w-quote FINAL



From the USA TODAY bestselling author of Sweet Thing and Nowhere But Here comes a deeply emotional contemporary romance about the second chances waiting beyond the shattered dreams of youth.
Under the bright arena lights of a rodeo show, young Avelina Belo falls for a handsome cowboy with a larger-than-life personality. After a whirlwind courtship, she happily moves away from her family in northern California and settles into married life with her cowboy on a seven-thousand-acre cattle ranch in Montana. One freak accident later, Avelina’s hopes for the future come to an end.
Nate Myers graduated from UCLA medical school at the top of his class, ready to follow in the footsteps of his father, a superstar cardiothoracic surgeon. Six years later, Nate’s career is being ruined by a malpractice suit. Questioning himself for the first time, he retreats to a Montana cattle ranch to visit his uncle and gain perspective. There, he meets a beautiful young woman named Avelina who teaches him more than he ever knew about matters of the heart.

WOW!! Renee Carlino has done it again!  I am in LOVE with this book.  Avelina and Nate will always hold a special place in my heart!  I will say that this book will tug at your heartstrings from the very beginning.  I was a blubbery mess from the beginning to the end.  Whether I was crying tears of joy or tears of sorrow, I was a mess and left gutted by this beautiful story.  Nate and Avelina are so complex with such different but equally tragic back stories.  And in true Renee Carlino fashion, her writing paints such a beautiful picture that leaps from the pages.  I swear she has a little magic in her writing style.  It is truly unique.
