"Lois Greiman is a natural storyteller." –Victoria Alexander

Wild horses
Wild hearts
And a diapered lamb under the Christmas tree. . . 

Could life get any more hectic at the Lazy Windmill? With the holidays reminding Casie of every mistake she's ever made, and her assistant Emily struggling to be a single mom, it's anyone's guess what the New Year will bring. Then bad boy Colt Dickenson shows up with a ring. No one has ever gotten under her skin like he has, but Casie can't believe a rough stock cowboy will stick around for the long haul. 

But the heart wants what it wants;love is as stubborn as family, foals, and farm equipment. And sometimes you have to face your fears to find the happiness only coming home can bring.

    What a sweet, fun, charming read! The Lazy Windmill is the name

    What a sweet, fun, charming read! The Lazy Windmill is the name of the ranch in South Dakota where this book takes place, and it is anything but lazy. From beginning to end this book has something going on all the time.If you love stories about misfits then you will have no problem falling in love with every single character in this book.

    Casie and Colt have known each other since they were in school. They have shared a kiss, but now Colt is ready to share his life – all he has to do is convince Casie. However, as you will read, it proves way more difficult than it sounds. Casie and Colt serve as surrogate parents for their brood which consist of Emily, Sophia and Ty. All three are teenagers that need love, stability, safety, and most importantly someone who believes in them. All three are unique characters with their own stories to tell,and all three will have your heart tied in knots.

    There is A LOT going on in this book. You have the main story of Casie and Colt, but each secondary character, Emily, Sophia and Ty, along with the ranch’s guests all have equally interesting and appealing stories. They are all woven together beautifully and flow smoothly to give you a heart-warming read. Symbolism is strong throughout the book, but it just adds to the charm and warmth of the read. You will be left thinking yes there are still good people left in the world, and wishing there were a few more “Casie” and “Colts” out there – especially for young trouble teenagers.

    Finally Home by Lois Grieman
    Series continues with Casie still on the ranch where her father had left her everything when he died. Emily is there cooking and raising the goats along with Bliss her daughter.
    Sophie is there when her father has other things to do on the island with young woman. Ty is from a neighboring farm and helps them out daily. Colt is a bronc rider but likes to help them fix things around the ranch.
    Casie has taken in strays-not only people but animals so the ranch is fast growing. Emily also bakes for neighbors and makes a good profit. They take boarders in for a week that also helps pay for the ranch.
    Each of the guests and people who work at the ranch have their own problems and it's interesting to see how they want to help the others out, sometimes it's not the right choice but it's up to them to decide...
    I received this book from The Kennsington Books in exchange for my honest review

    Didn't want it to end!

    It’s almost Christmas, and life has reached a tenuous calm in Finally Home, the third book in Lois Greiman’s Hope Springs series. Three wayward teenagers have mostly settled in at the Lazy Windmill Ranch. Emily dotes on her newborn while running the kitchen, Sophie struggles for acceptance despite her uppity nature, and Ty grapples with his shaky self-worth as he tends his beloved horses. Even a newborn lamb has found a place in the household. As for the adults, Casie Carmichael continues to manage her ranch while fighting off longtime admirer Colt Dickenson, who won’t take no for an answer regarding marriage.

    Tranquility disappears with the paying guests and visitors: a city couple that has problems seeing beyond their own lifestyle, Sophie’s divorced and still squabbling parents, and a mysterious young man whose intentions are anything but clear. Through hidden fears and selfish motives, Greiman creates characters so real and charged you can hear their hearts beating.

    The result is a complex plot where misguided and dysfunctional adults act as catalysts for a younger generation fighting to find their way. Along with senseless behavior that upends everyone’s stability, there’s plenty of wise and loving humor. Life presents disagreements and issues that strike at the core of our being. But that doesn’t mean relationships aren’t possible or worth the effort, and the concept of family takes on broader meaning. This is a moving story of love and regret, compassion and hope, tension and tenderness.
