One Door Closes Tour Stop!

Years ago, Calvin Ware found a refuge in Neverwood, a home for wayward boys. Now, following the death of his foster mother Audrey, he’s returned to fulfill her request to restore the decrepit Victorian mansion to its former purpose.

Under the threat of repossession, Cal clashes with his foster brothers over restoration plans while fending off the unscrupulous developer who is breathing down his neck. Audrey’s well-meaning presence in his dreams does more harm than good as he struggles to cope with it all. What’s more, the contractor he hires to get the building up to code turns out to be Will Cabot, his high school flame.

As they begin working together, Cal finds he still has feelings for his first love. But his mistakes of years ago threaten their future, just as they ruined their past, and Cal knows he can’t withstand the heartbreak a second time.

Calvin Ware grew up as a foster child in the loving home of Audrey with his other two foster brothers Devon and Danny.  Once Calvin aged out of the system he left for a bigger city and gained an education and career but his life came to a stop when he received word that Audrey had died and she left the mansion to him and his brothers.  Never really getting to know them, they certainly aren’t welcoming him back with open arms this time.
Through a letter she wrote she asked him to trust himself enough to fix up the house and use it for the purpose she had intended, to help others.  That didn’t seem like it would be too difficult till he saw the condition of the house.  Calling in a contractor was going to be his only choice, but even that choice came with drama.  Opening the door to Will, the man he had a history with from school. 
Calvin is going to need to learn to deal with the stress this move is causing in a healthier way than he has in the past.  Knowing every penny he has is going to end up in this mansion, he is going to have to decide what he is going to do to handle his stress and other issues that he will be forced to admit. 
For Will and Calvin to ever put the past behind them and find a future they are going to have to come clean with their secrets.  The chemistry is there but is the love they think they feel enough to get them through the dark paths from the past.  As if that isn’t enough to deal with, Calvin’s foster brothers have a past of their own that will haunt everyone involved in getting Audrey’s last wish fulfilled.  When a local man is willing to use their mistakes against them to gain the mansion some serious questions are going to have to be answered.
I enjoyed this book, it was clear that Calvin was learning how to take the faith Audrey had in him and keep moving forward.  His truth regarding his past was heart breaking at times but I loved seeing Will accept him and support his dreams.  I look forward to the other books in the Neverwood series, the author did a great job at giving us enough information about Devon and Danny to want to know more.
