The Road to Eden’s Ridge – M.L. Rose

From the back cover –

Less than an hour before her wedding, Lindsey Briggs calls off the ceremony, leaving her family home in Maine to pursue her dream of being a singer-songwriter in Nashville.  There she meets country music legend Ben McBride.  Through that chance meeting, she discovers the depth of Ben’s relationship with her family as well as secrets from her past.  A remarkable family tale is revealed for Lindsey, who learns the importance of pursuing her heart and about the power and endurance of love.

I wasn’t sure what to think of this novel before I actually started reading it – I thought it sounded good, although not necessarily the type of book I would jump at the chance to read… but I decided to give it a try anyways.  I was very pleasantly surprised when I got sucked into Lindsey’s story immediately and ended up really enjoying the novel!  I feel like with books like this, it’s all too easy for the characters to be stereotypical and one-dimensional, but I did not at all find that to be the case in The Road to Eden’s Ridge.  The characters, especially Lindsey and Ben McBride, were interesting and very likable… I fell in love with this story because I really cared about what would happen to these characters from the beginning.  The story was also well-crafted and hooked me from the start – I was very intrigued by Lindsey’s “relationship” with Michael and couldn’t wait to find out what would happen with it, as well as the back story surrounding Ben McBride and his relationship to Lindsey’s family.  I can’t say that I was surprised by the “depth of Ben’s relationship with Lindsey’s family” – I saw this thing coming a mile away – but it was still fun to read Lindsey’s reaction to the whole situation.  And although parts of this book were very sad, overall it was a very comforting, sweet book with great characters that I really enjoyed.  I definitely would recommend it for a light read about families, relationships, and living your dreams.
