Take Me Home

When Claire Parker left Sanctuary, West Virginia, she thought it was for good. She never dreamed she would return and be sharing her problems with a “whisper horse”. She has been through an ugly divorce and now is taking care of her ailing sister who is facing some trials of her own. An abused Thoroughbred mare has come to her rescue and they have formed a special bond. She also got to meet the handsome vet who is treating the horse’s wounds.

Dr. Tim Arbuckle, was devastated by his wife’s death and is having a hard time opening his heart again. Claire has stirred emotions he thought were deeply buried and the bond gets stronger when her whisper horse falls gravely ill.

Dollycas’s Thoughts
What a wonderful story. I needed to read a romance I could loose myself in and this one was excellent. Set in the majestic mountains of West Virginia with believable characters in real situations, I truly loved this story.

There is a lot happening in this story and I was surprised how quickly I reached the end. It is so well written and perfectly paced. I enjoyed Claire and Tim’s story and I am hoping Holly’s story continues as this is supposed to be a series. The supporting characters are rich and I definitely what more.

This book had me wishing for my own whisper horse. What a fantastic idea! I wonder if Willow has friends in the pastures of Wisconsin.

This may have been my first experience with this author but it definitely won’t be my last.
