Springtime at Hope Cottage by Annie Rains Book Review

The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date March 5, 2019

When opposites attract…

As an editor at a major New York City magazine, Josie Kellum is always on the go…until an injury sidelines her in the small town of Sweetwater Springs. Luckily, her new physical therapist is easy going and easy on the eyes. When their sessions start to heat up, in more ways than one, Josie is intrigued. But she has a city and career she loves waiting for her. So why does the thought of leaving him suddenly feel a lot like leaving home? 

Tucker Locklear is just starting to move on after his wife’s death. While he can’t deny his attraction to the gorgeous, vivacious Josie, he won’t risk the pain of losing someone again. The sooner he gets Josie back on her feet and back to her real life, the safer he’ll be. But in Sweetwater Springs, love has a way of mending even the most damaged heart.

Springtime at Hope Cottage by Annie Rains Book Review

A sweet second chance romance takes place in the charming town of Sweetwater Springs. Y’all, can I move here?

Let’s All Head to Sweetwater Springs

Full confession, I purchased Christmas on Mistletoe Lane by Annie Rains last holiday season. If you thought I could resist a Christmas cover with a blonde lab puppy, then YOU DON’T KNOW ME at all! I still haven’t read it because I had more books than time this holiday season. Christmas on Mistletoe Lane is the first in Annie’s Sweetwater Springs series. After loving Springtime at Hope Cottage so much, I’m thinking Christmas in July may make an appearance.

As a Physical Therapist (PT) I love the physical therapy aspect in this book.  Tucker treats his patients in the wild out & works his PT in as part of their activities of daily living (ADLs). This is so cool to me because I know Annie Rains is an Occupational Therapist (OT). While OTs concentrate a lot on ADLs, PTs focus on walking & mobility. Tucker embodies the best of both PT & OT.  You don’t get his approach in many places due to insurance constraints. His ability to treat patients in his own unique way makes like him even more.

Sweet, Tender & Hits Your Soul

This is a sweet romance. It’s not super steamy like my recent fave One & Only by Jenny Holiday but that is fine by me. I love every minute of this tender & charming story. While reading Springtime at Hope Cottage, I feel all snuggled up in this wonderful world. Everything will be okay, people get seconds chances, your neighbors support you & you may even get a free fudge sampler platter. Let me be clear, my friends, we all need that feeling in our life. Annie Rains delivers hope.


I am Really Into This book! I love the way Springtime at Hope Cottage makes me feel; joyful & fulfilled. May we all be so lucky to have our own Sweetwater Springs & get our own second chance.
