Review: Whiskey River Rescue by Justine Davis

Whiskey River Rescue
Whiskey River #1

Tule Publishing

Still reeling from the unexpected sale of the land she and her horses live on, horse rescuer Kelsey Blaine is frantic when she comes home to find her possessions already boxed up and her house being bulldozed without any notice. Normally calm and kind, Kelsey becomes furious and impulsively cuts a privacy fence to confront the culprit—her mysterious neighbor, Joe.

Joe Kilcoyne is in a desperate place. He guards his secrets and hides from the world for a reason. He’s the hottest topic of speculation around Whiskey River, but no one has ever dared to get close to him. That is, until fiery Kelsey comes barging straight into his life.

The last thing Joe needs is for Kelsey to breach his defenses and make him confront his past. But when her sunny, open, and determined personality collide with a haunted man with no idea how to reconnect with the world, the sparks that ignite shock them both.

It's been a while since I've read anything by Justine Davis. She wrote one of my favorite books, Avenging Angel which was published in 12/2002. That was a very long time ago. And then she slowed down her writing for personal reasons and I kind of didn't keep up with her. 

I was so excited when I found this new story by her. I knew I had to read it. The story is a little less then 200 pages but I didn't feel like I was missing anything. I knew right away that I was going to like the story. Even if in the beginning I didn't know what I thought about Joe. 

He's not a easy hero to like. But as you read the story you'll understand why. As more and more layers of the story open up you find out what's gone on in his past. I spent a lot of this book either wanting to cry for him or yell at him. 

Fun, right? 

All I can tell you is that Whiskey River Rescue is well worth the read. You'll enjoy it and want more from this series. And if you get a chance look for and read Avenging Angel. It's so good! 

If you've read Whiskey River Rescue or anything else by Justine Davis I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
