The Wedding Ranch by Nancy Naigle


 When Lorri Walker’s husband gifted her with a mastiff puppy on Valentine’s Day, she believed he was recommitting himself to their marriage after going astray. Six months later, he left both her and their dog for someone else. Since her recent move to Dalton Mill to unbraid herself from the past, Lorri’s graphic design business is now flourishing, her growing mastiff, Mister, has plenty of space to romp, and her ex in Raleigh can fade to a distant memory.

Ryder Bolt is haunted by the tragic loss of his wife and young son seven years ago. Thankfully, ranching keeps Ryder busy, and spending time with his niece and nephew―whose venue, The Wedding Ranch, has become a popular tourist destination―keeps him from getting lonely.

When Lorri and Ryder met, love was the last thing they were looking for. When they’re together, smiles come easier and burdens feel lighter, and both are embracing the possibility of something deeper.

But when a long-buried revelation surfaces, the fate that brought them together threatens to tear them apart.

My Review


 

What a great read, it will tear at your heartstrings!
Two hurting people, a very big dog, a small southern town, and throw in a bit of sweet romance.
There is a rebirth for Lorri, moving into her beautiful new home, with Mister, her mastiff, and you feel her coming back alive with her move.
Enter Ryder, a man who loves his family and his land, but has suffered a great loss.
The author did a wonderful job of bringing this story alive, and making me want to live in this awesome North Carolina town, where everyone knows everyone, and are there for all.
Devastating decisions made by others and how those choices hurt so many others!
A read you don't want to miss!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher St. Martin's Press, and was not required to give a positive review.
