About this Book:

After seeing Tessa Grant calm his storm-spooked horse, Ethan McClure is impressed. But does the new vet have what it takes to prove her mettle with Ethan’s local horse-rescue group? Ethan can’t deny her healing touch with animals…or her powerful effect on this rancher. But Tessa is busy trying to get her footing after leaving Kentucky to start over in this mountain town. When she learns a family secret that turns her world upside down, Tessa’s ready to push everyone away. Unless Ethan can help her embrace forgiveness—and forge a path to her heart along the way.

My Review

This is the third book featuring one of the McClure children and the author gives another wonderful, feel good story. Ethan McClure is a rugged cowboy with a damaged heart. When he encounters the new vet he’s does what so many people do, judge based on appearances. But he soon realizes that Tessa Grant is a force to be reckoned with.

The author did provide some surprises in this story that made it even more charming. I loved the interactions between Tessa and Doc, the senior veterinarian, who is set in his ways while Tessa wants to bring the practice into the 21st century.

There is also some drama in the story as Tessa, Ethan, and Mary deal with protecting seized horses from a local rancher who had neglected the animals.

The thing I like about this author is there is a solid spiritual aspect and it’s generally with more than one character. This story is no exception. More than one character faces his or her past and develops a deeper relationship with God.

The only complaint I have about this story is we don’t get to spend much time at the equine therapy ranch. But it’s still an enjoyable read.

Although this story has characters from the other two books it stands on it’s own.


I’d recommend this for anyone looking for a light, charming love story with some interesting twist. You will find that as well as a glimpse into the human heart and God’s grace in action.


I did receive this book from the author, but was under no obligation other than to give my honest opinion.
