Overview

1 broken down mare
2 baby lambs
3 lost teens
And a busted up bronc rider with more balls than brains. . .

They all add up to trouble in Casie Carmichael's book. She's come back to Hope Springs, South Dakota, with only one thing in mind—selling the family's tumble-down ranch and returning to Sioux Falls and her very practical fiancé. But leaving isn't as easy as she imagined, not when every bedraggled stray in the territory has a homing beam straight to her barn.

Suddenly, angry parents, hairless goats and a former flame's new heat aren't Casie's most pressing problems. Her own mixed-up heart is at the top of the list, and as she throws herself into making a safe haven for her motley crew, she realizes home is a lot closer than she thought.

In regards to "Loves to Read". You shouldn't rate the book poorly just because you don't know how to avoid the "glitch" in reading. When you get stuck in a loop turning the page, try changing the font size. I see this glitch all the time, and changing the font size usually allows you to get past the page turning loop.

I couldn’t put this book down. Casie Carmichael attends a ranch auction, intending to sell stable gear from her late father. Instead, she ends up saving a broken-down horse and reigniting sparks with an injured bronc rider from her past. The whirlwind of daily ranch life leads to more rescued horses and a mismatched trio of teens looking for shelter, compassion and belonging—each with a story overshadowed by secrets. While Casie’s cowboy stakes a claim on her heart, misgivings about her physician fiancé grow. Turns out the Lazy Windmill Ranch is a sanctuary for people as well as horses, and Finding Home is a keeper!

This book was 260 page book cost $1.99 plus tax. It was pretty good. Not quite what the over view stated, but close. I just do not like to be musinformed. This book was a rather slow read. It does not have a specific genre, unless it is just fiction. There is child abuse, animal abuse and some violence, no murders. About the time the pace picks up and becomes really interesting, the book is over. The ending was abrupt and unsatisfying. The editing was good. A 28 year woman takes in all kinds of needful animals and people. She is used by her fiance as a meal ticket and he is a hateful man. The sub plot with the realtor is unresolved as is the bronco buster. One day, she has had enough and loses her cool. Animals die in this book. This really bothers me. For ages 16 and up. AD

I enjoyed this book. It seemed a little childish to me but i would not recommend it for a child or teen. It is okay for a young adult but once again something seems off about i can never quite tell what it is. She seems to be quite affectionate to animals and she gets inadvertantly pushed around by a young girl. I find her behavior odd but slightly refreshing with a side freak me out. I was surprised and concerned by how long she kept around her fiance. She should have dumped him long ago. That sniveling manipulator.

Country girl caught up with college doctor fiance returned to home ranch with juvinile intrige and high school teaster that keeps you intrigued. A little challenging inthe first chapters with the over use of tjesaures words for comfortable ones. Still would appreciate less curssing.

Really nice tale of a woman who cannot escape her own sense of honor and responsibility. She finds who she is meant to be in the process. It gave me a glimpse of what it is like to manage a small ranch and the struggle of the small rancher to make ends meet. There are depths to the people in this book. They are more than simple characters and I found their stories compelling. Good read on a lot of levels
