Ryan Devaney doesn't need anyone, or so he thought, until Maggie O'Brien bursts into his life. Like a breath of fresh air, Maggie sweeps the cobwebs from his heart, giving Ryan a taste of what he longs for—family and love. Can he relinquish his despair to meet her halfway? Sherryl Woods's RYAN'S PLACE (4.5) is like watching a black-and-white romance classic on late night television, replete with a dark and brooding hero, bright and breezy heroine, picturesque setting and even a loveable, matchmaking priest.
