About this ebook

From bestselling author Catelyn Meadows comes a new western romance series about a rugged cowboy, a wounded beneficiary, and the house that brings them together.


The last place she wants to be is the best place to heal her heart.


Belle Toby lost her fiancé in a tragic accident. She left Bridgewater as soon as she could and vowed never to return.


When she unexpectedly inherits Havenwood Farm—and her childhood home that she’d just as soon sell if it means ridding herself of the memories within those walls—Belle is forced to return to settle the property.


Unbeknownst to her, she also inherits the handsome cowboy who is currently the property’s resident farmhand. Selling the farm will mean Luke will have to pick up roots as well, and he isn’t going without a fight. He loves the property, and he attempts to remind Belle of what the farmhouse once meant to her too.


Will Belle’s broken heart find healing, or is she only risking another fracture?


With small-town charm, unexpected but heartfelt friendships, fulfilling romance, and a cozy farmhouse that beckons you home, get swept into the cadence of Luke and Belle’s story of hope, healing, and redemption.

Where to start?! Catelyn is so good at what she does! I love that I still get a familiarity of her writing style here and --- even with just the little I know about her personally --- can see probably where various biographical influences leaked into the crafting of this novel. Then, to elaborate with everything else: Belle's character and background are established right away, and I love all the themes on loss, trauma, mental health, family, home, self-worth, fate, facing one's fears, reconciliation, etc. The small town feel (and the flirtation interactions, by the way) are also very realistic --- Belle's grandparents' home reminds me of my own grandparents' in southern Utah. The characters are just overall great! I can't pinpoint it well enough here, so I'll leave it at that! There are lots of great details and metaphors, from the smallest thing like a mention of sunflowers to the analogies to a nude beach and to the Grand Canyon (they make a lot more sense with context, believe me, haha!) The language in this novel is varied and intelligent but comprehensible for a general audience. I love the humour that is occasionally included, such as Belle and Luke's original not-so-meet-cute and how a couch is considered good if it's qualified for kissing! And the little thoughts interspersed throughout the book on God. Really, overall, I only ever questioned a couple of things in it, like how I still wanted to know more about what went down with Luke and his family prior to the novel's happenings and how I am not sure I agree with Belle's grandpa that she always does as she's told (; I do agree that animals are the best therapists, though! Also, Uncle Thomas is icky. But yeah! -- the novel pretty much encapsulates Belle's journey to heal and grow and come back to herself, and I really enjoyed it. And: the side plot in this book with Bex totally sets you up --- and excites you for --- the next novel, too! So here are my favorite quotes: "You don't need to know my name. You just need to know you're my next bad idea." "Possibility had begun to blossom, timid and fragile as new buds in spring." "I was woven around his words as though I'd been a piece of twine around his fingers." "Sunlight...[is like] God smiling at me..." "...patched the dents embedded in my heart." "...Even the best things need a little looking after." And here is my personal theme song for the novel: "Look After You" by The Fray So yay for Catelyn!! (; Check this book out today! I highly recommend it (and her other books, too!)

Great second chance romance set in a quaint town. The characters are well written and the story is well done.
