BOOK REVIEW- Wind River Rancher (Wind River Series Book 2) by Lindsay McKenna *
Something to hold on to . . .
Not so long ago, Reese Lockhart was commanding a company of Marines. Now his life is spiraling out of control. The Bar C ranch outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming may be his last chance to save himself . . .
Shaylene Crawford, an Afghanistan veteran herself, knows all too well the demons of PTSD—that’s why she’s determined to turn her family’s cattle ranch into a place where wounded warriors can work, find a home, and rebuild their souls. Her embittered father nearly drank and gambled the place away, but with help from a small crew of vets—including the newest arrival, the quietly compelling Reese Lockhart—she intends to hold on to her dream. And when someone tries to destroy that dream, Reese will do whatever it takes to defend her . . .AMAZON LINK
This book had potential that felt like it only hit some of the marks.
I liked both Reese and Shay and felt like their emotions came through pretty well. I also liked the other wranglers in the story who came together as a team on the ranch. I also liked what Shay was doing on the ranch to help support fellow vets.
However. It also felt like a lot of repetition on several subjects. Especially the issue of P.T.S.D. It was important to the story but it was the same thing over and over and it dragged the story down. Don't get the wrong idea though. I do believe that we need to do more for our veterans.
We are also left hanging about Shay's nasty daddy. That really wasn't okay with me.
