Rocky Mountain Angel - Vivian Arend I have wanted to read this ever since Vivian Arend posted a snippet at her blog, so when she offered ARCs, I requested one. And I am glad I did.This was a touching and heart warming story. I liked how Allison and Gabe let things take time, and didn't rush anything. But while they took their time, they were always there for each other when they had had a rough day. And there was plenty of those.But most of all, I loved how their relationship with their families were depicted. Both the good and bad sides. And it was touching to follow Allison's struggle with her mother's decline. Yet, the love she felt for her mother shone through.Like all Vivian Arend's books the setting play a big role. In this case it was evident the characters love for the outdoors are evident. But I also liked that it was that farming is hard, and that it often is a struggle to make ends meet. While I liked this book a lot, it had some issues that keeps me from give it an A. The biggest issue for me was that the spark between Allison and Gabe kept flickering. Sometimes I felt it, sometimes I didn't. I also wished that some of Gabe's decisions and struggles had been shown more clearly, instead of being mentioned off hand.
