Aspen Crossroads

Title: Aspen Crossroads
Series: A Whisper Canyon Romance #1
Author: Janine Rosche
Publisher: Berkley Books
Release Date: August 24, 2021
Genre: Western Romance

To protect those most vulnerable, Haven Haviland must trust her heart–and her regrets–to a mysterious newcomer in this moving contemporary romance. 

Few in the community of Whisper Canyon have actually met Jace Daring, a handsome recluse who lives at Aspen Crossroads, the farm at the edge of town. But that doesn’t stop the rumors about the multiple women who live with him. He must protect the truth–that his farm-to-table restaurant will provide new livelihoods for women rescued from human trafficking–or he risks the safety and futures of those relying on him. But he can’t do it alone. 

Haven Haviland has always been everyone’s safe place to fall until one mistake closes her counseling practice and leaves her open to the town’s gossip. Trusting men has gotten her in trouble before. However, accepting Jace’s job offer to mentor the rescued women seems like the perfect way to right her wrongs. 

When the mayor’s campaign to clean up Whisper Canyon targets Aspen Crossroads, the restaurant comes under fire, dangers from the women’s pasts are awakened, and Haven’s sins are exposed for all to see. Jace would sacrifice himself to save Haven and the women under his care, but his efforts might not be enough. And in the end, it might not be the women most in need of saving after all.


Haven Haviland signs on at Aspen Crossroads, after a misstep has her closing her counseling practice. There she meets Jace, a man  shrouded in mystery and rumors. When the mayor of Whisper Canyon targets Aspen Crossroads in his goals to clean up the town, Jace and Haven must fight to save Aspen Crossroads. 

Twisted family histories come to the surface as Jace and Haven work to make a Aspen Crossroads a success. Jace can be reclusive, but he is kind, with a heart for his work and farming. I loved the chemistry between them when they first met. And I liked how they came to trust and depend on each other as Haven becomes more and more comfortable in her new job. There is a full cast of characters, in their small town, and at Aspen, and it was fun getting to know the ladies. 

There is definitely a lot going on with current concerns about the mayor trying to close the center and trying to get the restaurant going. A clean read with winsome characters, overcoming their pasts and standing up to injustice. A well written read!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
