Redemption Ranch has fallen on hard times, the owner's husband absconded with all the money. Redemption Ranch offers a refuge for returning veterans and animals alike, and together the animals and the veterans find hope. Finn Gallagher is the head dog trainer, still blaming himself for the death of his estranged wife.
Kayla White and her son, Leo, are running from the past, and are ready to begin again. Finn reluctantly hires Kayla, she is happy to have found a place to rest, and Leo loves being around the dogs.
Can Kayla and Leo escape their past and find a new beginning?
Kayla and Leo bond with the dogs and the rough veterans at the ranch. Kayla is afraid to trust the veterans too much, because her husband was ex-military and military men tend to stick together. Finn is gruff at first, but he sees how she is a good mother to Leo, who is the same age as his son that died.
The old veterans are kindly, but can be gruff, they have a matchmaking twinkle in their eyes, so it was kinda funny to see them working to get Finn and Kayla together.
Kayla and Finn have good interaction, and come to see their partnership turn to friendship and then more. There was a lot of good interaction between the characters, as well as growth and a theme of not letting the past haunt the future. I loved how welcoming the town was to Kayla and Leo, as well as how everything came together in a dramatic ending. Great, enjoyable read!
