Healing the Cowboy's Heart by Ruth Logan Herne ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Veterinarian Charlotte Fitzgerald is fresh out of school and is ready to move to Shepherd's Crossing to live on her uncle's ranch for a year in order to claim her inheritance. She dreams of being a large animal vet and has a mobile unit, the last thing wants to do is get on the wrong side of the old vet, but when a herd of neglected horses shows up she wants to fight for their wellbeing, throwing her head first into controversy.

Isaiah Wood is an Appaloosa horse breeder, he becomes Charlotte's unlikely ally when he recognizes a horse that he had raised and had thought was put down. He has a lot on his plate too, raising his niece and nephew.

Charlotte has a big heart for people and animals. She connects instantly with Isaiah's niece and nephew, helping them feel needed and valued in the wake of their tragedy. She is passionate about what she does, and works hard to care for the neglected horses. She is very clever and knows what she is doing.

Isaiah admires Charlotte's passion and devotion, as well as her care for his niece and nephew. He has big heart and believes in second chances, he has a strong faith that is a part of everything he does. He grows throughout the book bonding with the children and working alongside Charlotte.

It was fun to see multiple returning characters from previous books, I appreciated the complex storyline and relationships that were much more than I normally expect from these shorter length novels. Well developed characters, riveting plot, and a great sense of community and family despite the drama. A heartwarming read, with strong characters that you can cheer for the whole way through. A fantastic conclusion to the series, compelling and satisfying.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
