The spectacular scenery and craggy beaches draw tourists to the small Oregon town of Sunset Bay. But Sanctuary Ranch offers a different kind of experience: a refuge for people—and animals—desperate for a new beginning . . .
Haylee Hansen has made a career out of caring for and training the dogs and horses on her aunt’s ranch. Part halfway house, part work camp, it also gives troubled kids and adults the tough love they so desperately need. Haylee should know. She was her aunt’s first success story. But now her turbulent past is about to show up on her doorstep . . .
After thirteen years running a level one emergency room in Portland, Dr. Aiden McCall arrives in Sunset Bay a broken man. Anger and anxiety have nearly taken over his life—and could sabotage his new job at the local hospital. Until someone proposes an unconventional solution: a therapy dog.
Haylee has seen her share of damaged people, but no one like Aiden. As she tries to match him with the perfect dog, he’ll help her to see that no one has a perfect life. And that opening yourself up to love is the only way to heal your soul . . .

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.
