    Great read

    I thought this was a wonderful story that was very well done. It's another look at the struggles our vets deal with on a daily basis and how just a little kindness from all of us can help them get their lives together. In this story Reese Lockhart is most definitely down on his luck. Homeless, jobless, and hungry he staggers into the feed depot in a town just outside Jackson Hole looking for work. The kindness of the owner is astounding and before Reese knows it his life is turned around. He's working on the Bar C, a ranch owned by Shaylene Crawford who is also a vet. She along with the help of a small handful of vets are trying to turn the ranch into a place other vets can come to work and deal with their demons. Someone is trying to keep that from happening and Reese is determined to keep both the woman and the dream safe. An excellent read and I definitely recommend it.

    Contemporary Romance

    Big issues discussed with potential for much more to be said about them in the books that may follow. I felt the ending was a bit abrupt with issues like what happens with Shay’s father, low ranch income, potential of future foreclosure, and what the futures of the three other wranglers with PTSD on the Bar C Ranch might end up being. I also felt that Reese and Shay were left dangling even though they were engaged with a wedding date in sight. The story had a feel-good-do-good aspect along with a bit of with an entire small town community pulling together to help one another out and most willing to employ ex-military. The book was educational in discussing PTSD a bit. I came away feeling that the author believes, as do many, that military veterans are not given the support they need when discharged and that this one small community could be a prototype for others to emulate – although – that would probably require a fairy godmother to come in with big bucks or a very magic wand. Do I recommend this book? – Yes, if you like slower paced, small town stories with happy endings and don’t mind a bit of predictability in the plot. I believe that there will be at least three more books in the future to discuss Noah, Garrett and Harper – the other three men on the Bar C Ranch. I looked up book one in the series since I had not read it and though it is set in the same locale I found it did not pertain to Bar C and this group of characters. At least I don’t think it did. What would I like to see in future books of the series? More back story for the characters and what caused their PTSD – it was mentioned a bit but perhaps an educational or informational blurb with signs, symptoms, causes, treatment, etc at the back might be beneficial – especially to someone who is reading and has no clue what it is or might be married to someone that has it and has not been diagnosed. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this book. This is my honest review. 3 Stars

    Wind River Book 2

    Reece and Shaylene are trying to rebuild their lives from the stress and PTSD of being in the military on a healing Wyoming Ranch . So enjoy this author and settings with characters the reader can relate and invest in their stories. Looking forward to the next book. Ebook from netgalley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are entirely my own.

    A message of hope ...

    A message of hope delivered through the pages of a romantic suspense novel. Wind River Rancher not only entertains, it informs. Ms. McKenna sheds light on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the struggle it's victims experience on a daily basis. Reese is a man focused on moving forward, but the demons from his past keep trying to pull him back in. Shaylene, is an inspiring work of art. Guiding by her heart, yet trying to escape her past has led her on a path to help those that may not have been as lucky as herself. Through Shaylene and Reese, Wind River Rancher uplifts, delivers insight and engrosses.
