Spotlight Read & Review - Good Together by CJ Carmichael

Some love stories have to begin with a falling-out-of-love story.
Mattie Carrigan's been helping her rodeo cowboy husband Wes Bishop run his family's Tennessee Walking Horse operation since they were married nineteen years ago. Blessed with twin daughters who've recently left for college, Mattie is looking forward to this new stage in her and Wes's life.
But when she finds a strange key in her husband's jacket, she's forced to admit that Wes has been quiet and distant lately. Turns out he has been keeping secrets. And he's not the only one. Even the rancher next door, Nat Diamond--a friend Mattie could always count on in the past--seems to be holding something back from her.
Good Together is for anyone who has ever pondered what it means to be married. Or had to reinvent her life when one breaks down. It's about having your heart broken but being strong enough to survive and love again.

I really enjoyed Maddie's story. On the heels of her twin daughters going off to college, her husband Wes tells her he wants out of the marriage. When her neighbor, Nathaniel, begins to help out they grow closer. Good Together is a story of loss, love and hope with a little something for everyone. It's definitely worth the read.

CJ has published over 35 novels and has twice been nominated for a RITA award. She likes to write stories about romance, family and intrigue, usually in small town or rural settings. When it’s time to take a break from the computer, she heads to the Rocky Mountains near her home in Calgary where she lives with her partner Michael and their cat, Penny.
