Any book with cowboys in it catches my interest so of course I had to get my hands on "Wind River Rancher". Then I got to the part about a female soldier and fell for the book entirely. Shaylene has her issues just like anyone else and the main one is suffers from PTSD. She turns her ranch unto a home for other wounded and broken soldiers. I think it was just great that she opened her home like that. Me, I would have a problem with inviting people I don’t know to stay with me, even if they are soldiers. They have so many issues and you never know what’s going to happen. Shaylene taking the chance to possibly make them feel better was great.
Reese is a little iffy but he knows he needs help and I applaud him for taking that step. It’s not easy asking for support or letting someone know that you need help. I love the fact that they got closer as I continued to read and watching the relationship develop was great.
At the end of "Wind River Rancher" you will get a preview of the next novel in this series called "Wind River Cowboy"; comes out in April.
The new novel from the bestselling author of Wind River Wrangler
Something to hold on to . . .
Not so long ago, Reese Lockhart was commanding a company of Marines. Now his life is spiraling out of control. The Bar C ranch outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming may be his last chance to save himself . . .
Shaylene Crawford, an Afghanistan veteran herself, knows all too well the demons of PTSD—that’s why she’s determined to turn her family’s cattle ranch into a place where wounded warriors can work, find a home, and rebuild their souls. Her embittered father nearly drank and gambled the place away, but with help from a small crew of vets—including the newest arrival, the quietly compelling Reese Lockhart—she intends to hold on to her dream. And when someone tries to destroy that dream, Reese will do whatever it takes to defend her . . .
