Welcome back to Heritage Cove, the little village by the sea brimming with character, community and friendship. The perfect place to fall in love…
Running Heritage View Stables is everything Hazel ever dreamed of. She loves working with the horses and managing the business with her brother. But after a terrible incident, she’s not sure whether she’ll ever be able to put things back the way they were.
Gus is ready to start over. He’s moved him and his ten-year-old daughter Abigail to Heritage Cove, where he’s opening his own vet practice. Everything is falling into place, especially as he watches Abigail start to come out of her shell for the first time since the accident.
Neither Hazel nor Gus is looking for love, but could they each be what the other needs? And is happiness even a possibility when their pasts won’t let them go?
Join new friends and old, as summer comes to Heritage Cove.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher.
Drawn to this book by its equestrian setting, this is my first visit to Heritage Cove, and I enjoyed it. Hazel and Arnold love running the family horse riding business, but Hazel cannot forget a past incident that has defined her future there. Gus is looking forward to running his veterinary practice, a new and courageous start for him and his daughter. Abi loves horses and soon bonds with Hazel, as does her father, but both have past issues that lead to misunderstandings that threaten their future happiness.
I love the equestrian detail in this story that makes it authentic and believable. The family dynamics are realistic, and there is an engaging balance of humour and poignancy. Unexpected drama, gentle romance, and a wonderful sense of community make this a delightful escapist read.
