What a fabulous story this one is MS Nash is a new to me author but I will be looking for more of her stories. If you want a story that will take you to the beautiful high country of Victoria this is the book to pick up the scenery is wonderful and the story is moving and beautiful as two people are bought together by what I think is fate they are meant to be with each other, but this one shows the love that grows between a man and his horses and the strength that comes from that love.

Dr Peta Woodward is on a hike walking on her own she wants that peace and serenity to think and work out what needs to be done with her family horse stud in the Adelaide Hills after the death of her father, Peta has not been home for many years since losing her sister in a tragic accident she is a loner she woks hard and her walks are where she thinks but when she has an accident on the trail and rescued by Craig Munroe Peta has a lot more thinking to do this is a life changer for her in such a good way.

Craig Munroe is from the high country a true horseman he has such a way with them but his life didn't start out too good but when he came to the small town of Yarraman Falls at the age of 10 things improved and he is well regarded in this small community where everyone pitches in and helps and everyone knows everyone. Craig has worries that he keeps to himself he is caring and very close to his sister but when he rescues Peta she is very hard on him and he is not so sure about her but as they get to know each other that changes.

This is a story that has so much going on suspense and bad guy family problems and it shows the hardships of living on a farm and of course the horses they are such strong characters in the story and the up and down journey to a HEA between Peta and Craig. The characters come to life on the pages it is a story that you will want to sit down and read without any disturbances as you feel the emotions from everyone in the story it is beautifully written and I savoured every word I can't recommend this one enough. Do keep the tissues ready as there will be times that tears are shed and you will be smiling also I loved this one.

5/5 stars for a great story
