Lone Rider by Lindsay McKenna

Lone Rider by Lindsay McKennaCoolCoolHeartHeartThumbs up

Lone Rider is the newest in the Wind River Valley series by Lindsay McKenna.  We are back on the Bar C Ranch designed to help veterans who are struggling with PTSD.  Shay was glad to see her friend from high school and wanted Tara to join the ranch. Tara has left the Arms Services.  Her tours left her with nightmares, anxiety and constant hyperawareness. Working outdoors as a wrangler and extra hand would be a godsend.  

 

Harper is fighting PTSD as well.  For him finding the ranch and being able to work with the horses helps him get through each day.  His marriage disintegrated and his life fell apart until he found the Bar C. Now he is working toward a future.

 

Together Harper and Tara spark.  They are both so damaged and afraid, but they are feeling things they hoped for but never expected.  I enjoyed the couple, but found the book dragged in the middle. I felt that the characters continued to repeat themselves and spent too much time in their head rehashing what happened and is happening.  I think the book could have included all the relevant plot line with more streamlined middle. However, the wordiness did not take away from the quality of the story with the mystery and adventure of Harper and Tara.  

 

I am looking forward to the next book in series when it comes out in the fall.  Lone Rider by Lindsay McKenna is a good read.

At first I thought it said spa season. Either way it is a sign of rejuvenation! On a Kristin Hannah kick, loved Winter Garden. Happy reading!

Cities are fun but exhausting. Like you the quiet is needed.
