After a cataclysmic tragedy leaves her alone in the world, Gabriela Kincaid climbs into her father’s ancient pickup and strikes off on her own, turning her back on everything she knows. No destination in mind, moving toward nothing but distance.
Fate chooses her destination, and she finds herself in Jasper Ridge, Idaho, a small town in the shadow of the Sawtooth Range. With nowhere else to get to, and no way to get anywhere else, she decides to make her home there.
Heath Cahill is fighting the demons of his own horrific past. A son of the most important rancher in Jasper Ridge, he’s tethered to the town, so he’s made his escape inward, turning his back on any new chances for a happy life.
But he sees something in the eyes of the young woman who walks into the town saloon: a guarded pain he recognizes as like his own. He tries to resist the pull he feels, but with a nudge from Fate, friends, and family, Heath opens his heart again.
Together, they find love and hope for happiness. First, though, they must face a past that neither has escaped.

4.5 great writing, good story stars
4.5 stars. I enjoyed this one. I have always been a fan of Susan Fanetti's writing, so when I heard that she had written a more contemporary romance story, well I was definitely in for reading it! It is a definite change from her previous books, but great writing as I expected. It had some of the things you expect from this author, which would be a unique setting/town, interesting characters, and a couple that you like together. And, though they don't live in a violent world, there are a few darker themes in this book. There is an age difference, with the h being younger, but honestly you wouldn't notice it if they didn't mention it themselves a couple of times.
It took me a little bit longer to really fall in love with the secondary characters jn this one, because the focus was on the main couple in the beginning, but by the end I was definitely hooked and can't wait for more of this series! Overall, it was a good story and I enjoyed it!!
Of Note- the authors note at the beginning states that she guarantees an iron clad HEA for all characters throughout for this series.
