Publisher's Summary

Under the bright arena lights of a rodeo show, young Avelina Belo falls for a handsome cowboy with a larger-than-life personality. After a whirlwind courtship, she happily moves away from her family in northern California and settles into married life with her cowboy on a seven-thousand-acre cattle ranch in Montana. One freak accident later, Avelina's hopes for the future come to an end.
Nate Myers graduated from UCLA medical school at the top of his class, ready to follow in the footsteps of his father, a superstar cardiothoracic surgeon. Six years later, Nate's career is being ruined by a malpractice suit. Questioning himself for the first time, he retreats to a Montana cattle ranch to visit his uncle and gain perspective. There he meets a beautiful young woman named Avelina who teaches him more than he ever knew about matters of the heart. Contains mature themes.

Well written and heart wrenching. Renee Carlino is one one my favorites. Her stories are thorough and real. Loved this hero and heroine.

Touching Tale of Self Discovery & Growth

Any additional comments?

After the Rain is a touching tale of self discovery and learning to move forward in the wake of heartache.

Avelina and Nate were mostly likeable and my heart hurt for all that each endured. I enjoyed their banter and they shared a palpable chemistry. The story had some lulls but my heart was invested in knowing the outcome. The dual POV provided a nice change when things seemed to drag a bit.

While I liked the story and the characters, the melancholy tone throughout the book dampened my overall enjoyment. I want to experience the emotions of the characters. I just need it to be a somewhat balanced experience of the emotional spectrum and this did not work for me personally. Though it's not my favorite from Renee, it does not change my immense adoration for this author and her work.

Overall Rating 3.5 Stars
