Sage is a compassionate nurse who cares about her dying patients and Cannon is a somewhat bitter young man having had to give up his life to return home and watch over his drunken father. Aspen Cove, Colorado is the place where they both end up. Katie is young and wants to get away from her domineering parents and she finds herself owning a bakery in Aspen Cove. Bea is the amazing woman (whom we never actually meet) that puts all the pieces in place. Bea spent her last days in a Denver hospital with Sage taking care of her as if she was her own grandmother. When she dies, Sage is surprised to learn that Bea has left her a B&B with instructions to make Aspen a better place. Katie is also given a special gift, though she has never met Bea, of the town bakery. Katie and Sage both arrive and are overwhelmed by the town and their new responsibilities. The first meeting between Sage and Cannon goes horribly wrong and both form an instant dislike towards each other. In a somewhat predictable way, they soon become friends and help each other to learn who they really are inside. Will love follow maybe?
I really enjoyed reading One Hundred Reasons: An Aspen Cove Romance by Kelly Collins. One Hundred Reasons is a feel-good, basically happy story. The sex is present but never smutty or terribly graphic. I found all the characters to be likable and the plot kept me entertained. One Hundred Reasons would make a perfect TV movie or perhaps a weekly show with stories of Aspen Cove highlighting different people each week. One Hundred Reasons is worth reading because it is definitely a hit!
