There’s an extreme heat wave at River’s Sigh B & B, but things have never been colder between Noelle Archer and her husband Cade.
Dragged there for a reunion with Cade’s screwed up family, Noelle is confused, resentful—and considering divorce.
Noelle never would’ve predicted she’d be trapped in a loveless marriage, but Cade’s more distant and aloof than ever, plus she’s sure he had an affair. What other choice does she have? Husbands who cheat don’t become faithful, and wives who put up with it become bitter and lonely. She won’t have that for herself, and she won’t model that for her children.
Cade has always clung tightly to Noelle, his beloved daughters, and their life together. He’s not good at expressing himself, but he’s been confident, even cocky, that if he’s strong enough, works hard enough, provides well enough, Noelle will know how he feels. But now one moment of stupidity that wasn’t what it appeared has wrecked everything. He wants her to believe in him the way his parents and brothers never have, with no explanations necessary—but maybe that’s unfair.
He’ll swallow his pride. He’ll find the words. He’ll do anything to fix their relationship. But what if it’s too late? Can shattered love ever be restored?
Spoons (River's Sigh B & B, #3)              Spoons by Ev Bishop

Isn’t it hard to stand by and watch a couple with several years of marriage under their belt slowly fall apart? Mistakes are made, miscommunication or lack of communication runs rampant until everyone has their walls built so high, nothing will break through. Ev Bishop’s Spoons is the story of Noelle and Cade, who are caught up in the self-protection mode of marital troubles.

With everyone so happy around them and their beautiful children to think about, each mentally becomes completely honest about their feelings, but fail to take a chance on exposing their raw emotions. Will the love that permeates the River’s Sigh B&B, and a deep-seated loyalty to each other expose their innermost hearts and souls and re-build the relationship they once knew or will it open their eyes to believing separating is the answer for true happiness? Someone must swallow their pride and someone must give them a reason to…

Ev Bishop’s Spoons is a gut wrenching tale of love, shattered and hearts broken while other relationships flourish. How debilitating for those who flounder, but the secrets and sins and confessions Noelle and Cade keep within are their real enemy. Two completely believable characters, flaws, insecurities and all make them riveting to watch. A sweet romantic tale that proves the journey to the end result, no matter what it is holds a lesson in its pages. Definitely Chick Lit, definitely quick and still, thoughtfully handled while still entertaining by the author, Ev Bishop!
