White Picket Fences is the third book in the Shelter Valley Stories series by American author, Tara Taylor Quinn. When Will Parsons volunteers his sister Randi to supervise college student pet therapy visits to Aged Care Facilities, she isn’t happy. Firstly, she really doesn’t like dogs; secondly, she doesn’t believe the therapy does anything worthwhile; and thirdly, the veterinarian she has to work with, Zack Foster is just too sexy. But her strategy to get out of this chore backfires, so she has to endure the regular visits.  Zack is still smarting from losing his wife to another woman, so even if he is attracted to Randi Parsons, he has no plans to act on it. But the best laid plans, as they say, occasionally fail. This is an enjoyable romance that expands on characters introduced in earlier books of the series as well as hinting at the fourth book. It is not essential to have read earlier books, but it does help with character backstories. This installment is a little slow, but has a sweet ending.

In Shelter Valley, Arizona, Randi Parsons lives a seemingly perfect life as the women¿s athletic director at the local university. She is popular in her neighborhood and at the school. Her loving family including four brothers and a new nephew live nearby and would do anything for her. So why during the winter break does she find herself so bored? Randi lacks a soul mate, but demons from her past make it unlikely for anyone to appeal to her. After his marriage ended in shambles, veterinarian Dr. Zack Foster moved to Shelter Valley to start life anew. He spent New Year¿s Eve with his borders, a sort of pet therapy. Zack likes the company of human females, but has no plans for any commitment after his last so-called permanent relationship ended when his wife blithely announced she was a lesbian. Randi and Zack meet and are instantly attracted to one another. As their relationship blossoms into love, both realizes that a permanent relationship requires compromise and consensus for the better good. However, neither one wants to change their lifestyle nor venture with the demon of love even if Nirvana is within their grasp.

WHITE PICKET FENCES, the latest Shelter Valley story, is a warm tale centering on the risk of entering a loving relationship. The story works because the lead charcaters and the secondary cast (including some old friends) feel genuine. Tara Taylor Quinn provides a wonderful tale that enhances a strong series in which love can be found and treasured. Fans will look forward to the next Shelter valley novel, SHELTERED IN HIS ARMS.
