This is a beautiful story. Some parts are scary with the boys missing in the wildernes, and other parts made me cry. This book is on my keeper shelf because it's full of all kinds of emotions and as the reader, I felt every one of them.

Lovely romance with all the right ingredients. Former couple reunited by their two lively and conniving children. Catherine Anderson writes very heart warming books. I usually cry during each of her books and look forward to reading everything she has written.

This story is near and dear to my heart because it seemed so real and heartfelt. I could feel the pain of the whole family, and it made me cry. Of course, I am a sucker for a happy ending, and this book doesn't disappoint.

I did like this book, but it took me forever to read. It was almost the end of the book before I got "hooked". The writing was good enough to keep me going, and the story itself was pretty good I just couldn't get into the groove with this one.

I can't even imagine being in Ellie's position. How she managed to keep going, given everything that she's been through was a feat in itself. Then to have to deal with her kid's hair brained plan... There would be two sorry kids if that was me. At the beginning of the book I was thinking, well they're just acting out, but by the end of the book all I could think was these kids need to be flogged!

But the love story between Ellie and Tucker was enough to keep me reading. There was one point when I was kind of scared for them. I wasn't really expecting there to be a sense of fear in the story. There were so many emotions worked into it. I think the mix of emotions was what really kept me reading.

It took me a while to get to read this book. It starts out with the couple divorced over the loss of a child. Not my favorite scenario. But, this is a beautiful story. There are many places to cry, and this is a very heart-felt read.

Another great Anderson romance - two kids decide their parents really should be together not divorced and how they manage to get them back together

This book isn't necessarily bad, I just couldn't get into it. It wasn't whatI expected. Very family oriented.

I ordered this book thinking that I hadn't read it and I normally love Catherine Anderson's books. Well, I had previously read it and even when I realized that.....I continued reading it! The characters in this book draw you in and make you feel their heartache and dispair. This book makes you feel the sadness of divorce, the loss of a child and the effect these events have on children. Great book.

Tucker and Ellie Grant were devastated when their oldest son was killed in an accident. Their grief eventually led to their divorce. Now three years later, Ellie has a new job and a new house, Tucker has a new girlfriend, and they are getting on with their lives. But the kids aren't buying it. Zach and Kody know that their parents still love each other, so they come up with a plan to get them back together. They'll run away into the Oregon Wilderness and stay there until their parents agree to get back together.

This was a great story. It kind of had a "Parent Trap" feel to it since both ex's bring their significant others with them to help search in the wilderness for the boys. This is an emotional story and also an adventure. I highly recommend this book. My rating: 5 Stars.
