Overview


Single mom of three, Sierra Montgomery is desperate to find a new job to keep from having to move back home and be smothered to death by her mother's good intentions and overbearing love. So when Sierra inherits Chance, a quirky old gelding she doesn't have a clue what to do with, she thinks her best bet may be to sell the horse to cover another month's rent-a decision that devastates her children.

Enter Ross Morgan, a handsome landscaper who just happens to have an empty barn and fenced pasture, perfect for an old horse to live out his days as the pet of three wounded kids. Ross develops a soft spot for eldest child Braden and he just might have one for Braden's mother. But what he doesn't have is time for distractions-he's got a landscaping business to run and nursery plants to tend.

But Sierra has a secret. She's terrified of horses and—thanks to her past—wary of attractive men. Yet seeing the way her angry son idolizes Ross and adores that old horse forces Sierra to confront her fears. Will she remain distrustful and self-reliant, or will she seek help from God and those who love her?

    This is an engaging inspirational family drama

    Her mom calls Sierra Montgomery to tell her she just inherited an old horse from Miss Libby. Sierra explains to her mom that she is struggling to feed and shelter her three children so what is she going to do with a horse after losing her job and her ex philandering spouse¿s child support checks bounce higher than a basketball. She hides the fact that horses frighten her------------------- Although her kids want to take a Chance on the aptly named horse, Sierra decides she must sell the ancient steed. However, she fails to close the deal so her mom finds a place where Chance can stay and even buys his feed. The stable owner, landscaper Ross Morgan offers to buy Chance from Sierra, but something about the horse makes her hesitate especially since her oldest child raging Braden has found a friend in the horse and in Ross who becomes the father the lad desperately needs at this time. While Ross and Sierra are attracted to one another, both agree the kids come first, Chance second and then them.------------------- This is an engaging inspirational family drama in which a mother and her three kids feel abandoned by God and a rat of a husband-father until Chance and then Ross come into their lives. The key to this enjoyable tale is the ensemble cast is full blooded with issues and doubts that make them seem real (can¿t say human as Chance is quite a title character). Fans will appreciate Sherri Sand¿s fine tale of a horse leading people to each other and back to God, who has time for everyone.------------- Harriet Klausner

    Good fiction

    This is a good, easy read. As the parent of a 4-H'er in a horse club, I love how they bring 4-H into the story. I really like how realistic the characters are as well.

    Great read...

    Sierra Montgomery is the single mother of three. Life is a struggle, financially and emotionally. She has a strong support group in her friends and mom, who they live with. One of her major struggles is her belief yet doubt in God. She inherits of all things, a horse named Chance. Ross Morgan a landscaper lets Chance stay at his farm and helps Sierra¿s son Braden train the horse. Chance helps her to believe, love and cope with life. Leave It To Chance is a great Christian read. Sherri Sand cleverly mixes humor and a strong plot to entertain and uplift readers. I could not put this book down. Sand¿s style is easy to read, inspiring and very enjoyable.
