Reaching Rose by Vickie Carroll


Rose Caldwell’s dreams are all coming true. After leaving her editor’s job in San Francisco, she has a new home in Redwood Cove, a burgeoning writing career, and big hopes for the future. But it all comes crashing down when she’s seriously injured in a car accident. She wakes up in the hospital days later – in pain, confused, and nearly blind – and is devastated when the doctor says her vision might never improve.

Adam Whitener loves helping people and, as a rehabilitation specialist, he gets to do that every day. When he’s assigned to Rose by her insurance company, Adam’s determined to make sure she has everything she needs to live life to the fullest, and that includes a beautiful new assistance dog, Lily. What he doesn’t expect is the strong attraction he feels toward his newest client.

Rose definitely isn’t ready for romance, and Adam would never cross that line, but sometimes love grows in the most unlikely of circumstances. As these two work side by side, it grows harder to deny that they might just be perfect for each other.

In the end, could the healing power of love be what they both really need?
