THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE SULLIVAN’S CROSSING SERIES
#1 New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Robyn Carr is back with ANY DAY NOW, the latest installment in her new, wildly popular Sullivan’s Crossing series. Return to the idyllic mountains and tranquil retreats of small-town Colorado, where Sierra Jones has just arrived off a bus from Iowa, for this story of self-discovery and second chances. After years of wandering, toxic relationships, and struggles with addiction, Sierra has decided to follow her brother, Cal, to Sullivan’s Crossing in search of a fresh start. While Cal is busy preparing for a baby with his new wife, Maggie, Sierra is ready to put down some roots of her own, which means finding steady work, focusing on her sobriety, and, most importantly, avoiding men and all the problems they cause. Sierra’s vow of chastity proves difficult to honor, however, when she meets Conrad Boyle, a local firefighter and kindred spirit who is recovering from heartbreak of his own. With his good heart, steady nature, and abs of steel, Connie will test Sierra’s resolve and force her to reconsider whether all men are worthless after all, and for the first time, she may have found someone she can finally trust and rely on. Above all, Connie seems more than ready to accept Sierra’s past and offer her a future full of the safety and stability that she’s always craved. But for Sierra, her troubled past is still too close for comfort. Because while she’s trying to resist Connie’s ever-enticing charms, Sierra is also on the run from a dangerous man who could threaten everything in her new life she’s trying to protect. As long as that man is still at large, turning over a new leaf may be harder than Sierra ever imagined.
