In this unforgettable novel of love, hope and second chances, a grieving man’s personal plan for redemption is suddenly and unexpectedly turned upside down . . .
If Wishes Were Horses
Wyatt Blaine’s life has been touched by unbearable sorrow, and he realizes the only way out is to reach out. So he revives his late wife’s horse therapy program by opening the gates of the Blaine family ranch to troubled kids, never imagining he’d come face to face with the woman he irrationally blames for everything—Gabby Powers, widow of the man responsible for Wyatt’s pain. Still, when she tearfully asks him to help her troubled son, he surprises himself by saying yes.
He’s even more surprised by the attraction he feels for this determined, but gentle, woman. He tries to tell himself she’s part of a painful past he wants only to forget. But love has a way of making its own plans, and little by little, Wyatt allows himself to see what his heart already knows—that his greatest wish will be to spend the rest of his life with Gabby.

In this unforgettable novel of love, hope, and second chances, a grieving man's personal plan for redemption is suddenly and unexpectedly turned upside down . . .
Devastated by the senseless deaths of his wife and son at the hands of a drunk driver, Wyatt Blaine remains unable to forgive or to love again. Searching for a sense of peace, he decides to revive his late wife's equine therapy program for troubled teens at the Blaine family ranch.
But then Wyatt's pastor asks for the impossible—for Wyatt to meet with Gabby Powers, the widow of the man responsible for the accident, and accept her troubled son, Trevor, into the program. Wyatt reluctantly agrees.
To his great surprise, Wyatt finds himself drawn to Gabby. But to heal completely, Wyatt and Gabby must first overcome the common tragedy that separates them and learn the true nature of forgiveness. And only by conquering these seeming impossibilities might their hearts become free to love each other . . .
