Dr. Rand Brookston desires nothing more than to serve the people of Timber Ridge, but lack of funds and modern equipment have stifled his abilities to properly treat the townspeople. When a much loved town merchant is diagnosed with heart failure, Rand knows that a risky surgery may help extend his life, but in order to perform the surgery he will need Rachel’s skills in the operating room. Overwhelmed by the day-to-day struggles of keeping her ranch operating, Rachel also struggles with guilt over her growing attraction for Rand, but reluctantly agrees to assist in the surgery. Over the course of time working together, Rand tries to gently coax Rachel’s heart into giving them a chance at love.
Beautiful love story of overcome the grief of a first love lost and the hope/fear of stepping out into something new. I especially enjoyed the secondary love story showcased between the ill townsperson and his wife (don’t want to spoil who that person is). A few other loose ends and reconciliations also occurred that started in previous books in this series. Great ending to an enjoyable series in Timber Ridge!
