Healing the Cowboy’s Heart (Shepherd’s Crossing #3) by Ruth Logan Herne
Published July 1st 2019 by Love Inspired
This is the third book in a trilogy, but the first one I read. Even though I know what will happen with the other two sisters, I will go back and read the first two to find out what happened in their lives and how they end up in Shepherd’s Crossing. This was such a sweet, romantic story. If you love animals, especially horses, you will love this story.
Charlotte Fitzgerald left everything behind except her veterinarian van and left New York to head to Shepherd’s Crossing to be with her sisters. She will inherit 1/3 of her uncle’s estate if she spends one year working in Shepherd’s Crossing. As the story progresses, the reader will find out about her past, and why she has run west. Shortly after arriving, she is called to a local equestrian school where a pack of abandoned and sick horses have wandered in. Determined to save as many as she can, she pits herself against the local, established vet. She also meets the local hottie, Isaiah Woods, a man raising not only horses, but his niece and nephew. Acceptance does not come easy for Charlotte, but she is determined to do what she believes is best for any animal patient she encounters. I loved her character. She has a past that has scarred her, but she is smart, strong, and willing to butt heads if it means saving an animal. Isaiah is also a wonderful character and the kids sucked me right in. I loved this relatively short story, despite the rather insta-love. A sweet, enjoyable story that I read in a day. I have loved every book I have read by Ruth Logan Herne and this one is no exception. The story of forgiveness and faith are in here, but not in a way that those who do not read a lot of Christian Fiction would not enjoy this story.
Synopsis: A perfect match…or sworn enemies?
Only time will tell at Shepherd’s Crossing.
Horse breeder Isaiah Woods can’t believe his only ally in helping a neglected mare is the descendant of his family’s bitter enemy—veterinarian Charlotte Fitzgerald. Despite the feud, Charlotte risks everything to save the horse. But as she falls for Isaiah—and the orphaned niece and nephew in his care—the mare isn’t the only one who needs saving.
