Only love can heal a broken heart…

After country music star Beth ‘Harmony’ Grey breaks down on-stage she literally crash lands in Alman. The tiny mountain town wasn’t where the grieving widow planned on staying, but she finds the anonymity of small-town life both calming and healing.

THE RV RANCH

by Tey Holden

Physically and emotionally hurt during her last tour in Afghanistan, Joelle (Jo) McCallister returned home. When neither her military accolades nor the exploits of her new Bohemian lifestyle fill the void in her life, she takes to the road in her RV in search of purpose and meaning to her life. An early blizzard leaves her stranded in the middle of Wyoming, where she meets Kate Nolan.

After her career dreams were crushed, Kate Nolan returned home to find her grandmother (Grams) ill, and her ranch falling apart. Her plans to rebuild go up in flames when a fire destroys the newly built cabins. Matters get worse when the bank manager shows up with default papers to repossess the property, and when bullets fly because outsiders with an interest in the ranch try to take it by force. When all seems lost, Jo asks Kate for the one thing that is most difficult for her to give, her trust. Jo calls her Army buddies to help solve the mysterious circumstances happening at the ranch.

Grams thinks Jo is the person who can restore Kate’s ability to trust again, and Kate the person who can heal Jo’s hurts and bring purpose to her life. Have the forces of nature conjured a plan to bring these women together to heal their wounds, save each other, and the ranch? Was Grams right about Kate and Jo? Or will the appearance of an ex-girlfriend and would be lovers ruin their chance for love?

But when they’re thrown grudgingly together for a group project in their first class, the heavens open up and the sparks begin to fly. There’s only one problem – Ruby’s still pining for her perfect ex-girlfriend.
