He’s looking for roots. She won’t be tied down.
Army ranger Travis Hammond needs to heal physical and emotional wounds. A job in Covenant Falls checking out equine therapy programs for veterans is a start, but it’s only temporary. And he doesn’t need a partner, especially some reporter with the persistence of a terrier and irresistible green eyes. Like Travis, Jenny Talbot’s just passing through town. Unlike Travis, Jenny knows exactly where she’s going next—back to the Middle East, as soon as she recovers from her own war injury. But there’s a bend in the road for both of them.

4 1/2 STARS! An emotionally riveting read! Two lost souls find a friend to believe in as they each recover from their own traumas and find their way into each other's hearts. The story was very easy to get hooked into and the characters felt real. This town seems to have a healing power on veterans who return home from fighting for their country and then find themselves floundering to return to life and daily living. It's very humbling to see so many different sides of what they have gone through and continue to live through as they heal. Great series! Major Travis Hammond is trying to figure out which path to take in his life now that an injury has side-lined him. When a friend reaches out to him to be a consultant in setting up the equine therapy program in Covenant Falls, it seems like a great program to take his mind off of his troubles for the time he needs to make up his mind about his future. Reporter Jenny Talbot was wounded doing a story in the Middle East, and is now passing time while she heals and waits to go back. When she hears about this town that seems to call to veterans, she knows she just has to visit and do a story on them. When she gets there and meets Travis and feels the tension the town feels about spotlighting the people who want privacy most, she agrees to center on the program and not on the people. She knows this story is going to be powerful and she wants to get it just right.
This is a great story about how you can come home again. However home is where the heart is. Travis is healing and is willing to stay in one place. Jenny is not. Not even if she found everything that she was looking for. As Travis learns his new job, he also learns how to heal and how to fall in love. Will his love be enough to win Jenny? Where will they end up? This was a great read and I enjoyed finding out where these characters ended up. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy, all opinions are my own.
