It all started with the letter; one for each of his four daughters. As the first book in the Crescent Falls series, My Dearest Maggie lays the foundation for a moving story from author Tessa Gray about a family's struggle with Alzheimer's.

From start to finish this was a beautiful story full of realistic characters dealing with the challenge of the family illness. Set against the backdrop of a small town, there's a dose of nostalgia that comes with a grocery store that still makes home deliveries.

The story focuses on events three years after Maggie Hanlon's father was diagnosed. She is trying to adjust to the changes that have happened. When she encounters Gage Stewart as he's delivering groceries, both of them feel a spark.

What follows is a touching story about a young woman desperately seeking a diversion from dealing with her father's illness. However, she's not so sure that a commitment is in her future.

Although there's obviously romance taking place throughout the pages, there's a solid storyline. The romance simply adds a sweet touch.
