Home is where the healing is.
Summer Quinn has been away from the Moonglow Dude Ranch a long time. Now she’s coming home. But is she ready for what awaits her?
Summer’s been hurt, her confidence wounded, her trust destroyed, and she has sworn never to fall for a man again. Trouble is, she’s still in love with the one man she thought would never want her.
Barrett Thorne had to quit the rodeo circuit because of injury. One more fall could be fatal. He’s certain he’s no longer desirable, especially since his wife left him for another cowboy. All he wants is manual labor to wear him out and a place to lay his head.
But beneath the Pocono moon, can Summer begin to heal her cowboy?

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Summer returns home to Moon Glow ranch, after dumping her cheating boyfriend and quitting her job. She's not telling them everything though, not just yet. Barrett has been friends with Summer and her brothers forever. He has had to give up the rodeo, for fear one more fall will kill him. Summer wouldn't want him, if he can't want himself, could she? Nice easy read, nothing too complicated or difficult, not too sexy, but just enough for this short of 50 odd pages. Both Barrett and Summer get a say, and they have a lot to say in a short space of time. The whole story takes place over couple of days, bar the cute epilogue. You get enough of them both, to fill the blanks that aren't given directly. I'm giving it three stars, but that's a good three. Short easy reads rarely get more than that from me. A perfect holiday read, bath tub read, lunch break read, or one of those you need to clear the palatte after a heavier book, a hangover cure. 3 solid, good stars

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
Molly Ann Wishlade has always been an avid reader and writer of stories. Her lifetime of reading has taken her from the magical worlds of The Faraway Tree and The Borrowers, to the Greek myths and legends, to Sweet Valley High and Judy Blume’s Forever, to Asimov’s science fiction, Jane Eyre’s torment and Stephen King’s masterpieces.
More recently she has wandered through the vivid historicals of Philippa Gregory; the bubbly, gritty delights of Adele Parks and the fast paced thrillers of James Patterson. She loves getting lost in a novel and often regrets finishing one as the characters are usually missed like old friends. She regularly indulges her insatiable hunger for romance and passion in the delicious worlds created by romantic novelists and is working on several novels herself.
What precious spare time she has is spent with her family (one gorgeous husband and two bright and beautiful children), taking long walks around the beautiful Welsh countryside (although she’s still waiting for the rescue greyhound she wants to accompany her), cooking her own secret recipe curries, drinking Earl Grey (in copious amounts) and discovering delicious wines. Oh, and she also loves to ski. She wants to take readers on the rollercoaster that is life through the creation of her own characters, relationships and worlds. She appreciates feedback, recipes and wine recommendations.
