    Loved it!

    What a fantastic book to start what should be an absolutely amazing new series that I can't wait to read more of. This book has so many incredible characters and a story that has so many facets it's hard to boil it down to just a few lines without giving anything away. The author did a fantastic job of developing these characters and really giving us their backstories so we can understand the people they are today. She also painted a beautiful picture of the small Oregon town the story takes place in. Oh, and did I mention there's puppies. And a baby. And so much more!!! Anyone who enjoys a small town romance will fall in love with this one from the very first page. Put this on the must read list. I highly recommend it.

    Contemporary Romance

    Sunset Bay Sanctuary by Roxanne Snopek Sunset Bay #1 Great start to a new series set on the Oregon coast – I can’t wait to see who will have their story told yet – there were so many great characters waiting in the wings to step on stage! Haylee Hanson has not had an easy life but has found her way through dark times to co-own Sunset Bay Sanctuary with her aunt Oliva. This is a ranch setting near the beach where they take in guests, help wayward youth and where Haylee trains dogs that will help others. The dogs were charming, the people intriguing, the backstories and subplots like a web with intricate threads…this was a story I could not put down. Aiden McCall is working temporarily at the local emergency room. He has his own set of demons to deal with that include panic attacks, nightmares and other assorted issues that make work difficult and his life stressful in general. With the suggestion a dog might help he is off to see Haylee. Sage is another person of interest that shows up pregnant and in need. Her story is a whopper and impacts more than one person in the book. I don’t want to say much more but I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was well plotted and written and a delight to read. I am eager to read book two in the series as soon as it comes out. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books – Zebra Shout for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Amazing

    Amazing, one the best books that I have in awhile. The first book in a new series that takes place in a small coastal town of Oregon. Haylee, takes care of dogs and horses on her aunt's ranch. Dr Aiden is the new ER doctor. Both individuals have broken pasts that still haunt them but with each other they begin to heal. You will go on an emotional journey with Haylee and Aiden, but to see their growth together is heartwarming. Plus, with puppies and babies, how can you go wrong. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    A Healing Place

    WOW!!! Words cannot describe how much I loved and was moved by Sunset Bay Sanctuary by Roxanne Snopek, the first book in her Sunset Bay series. This is a story of two people who are struggling with soul-crushing pain, anxieties, and past decisions that have affected their lives. Haylee Hansen trains dog on her aunt’s ranch which is part halfway house and part work camp. It’s a place where troubled kids and adults receive the love they greatly need. Haylee understands, as she was once one of those teens, after losing the last of her family to 9-11. Only now, her troubled past ends up on her doorstep, turning her life upside down. Dr. Aidan McCall is a broken man when he arrived in Sunset Bay. He is controlled by the anger and anxiety from his past, affecting his life. He is fearful of this interfering with his new job at the Sunset Bay hospital, until someone suggests that he get a therapy dog. Haylee knows Aidan has baggage and is troubled but she wants to match him with the perfect dog to help him. As these two spend time together, Aidan helps Haylee see that no one has a perfect life and that opening yourself up to love is the only way you can heal your soul. I really loved reading this heart-warming book, it moved me, and brought tears to my eyes. Ms. Snopek, is a wonderful story teller drawing me into her book, making me forget the world around me and not letting me go until I turned the last page. I did not want to put this book down to stop reading. I highly recommend this book to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    There will be tears...

    Ms. Snopek makes it hard not to believe in happily ever after. The trials of being human are realistic and painful, but ever the optimist, Snopek finds a way to heal as she entertains. There will be tears, but there will also be moments of hope and that is something everyone needs. Sunset Bay Sanctuary opens the eyes to life's missed opportunities, but it also unlocks the heart to endless possibilities. Informative, innovative, overflowing with that trademark Snopek humor and wisdom, Haylee and Aiden will prove faith can move mountains, if you believe.
