#BookReview :: Whiskey River Rescue (Whiskey River #7) by Justine Davis

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.

Kelsey finds out that her landlord has sold her property without ample notice. It is all done so suddenly and out of the blue, that she has no other option than to confront her landlord in order to save the rescue horse operation she runs. Her landlord and neighbor is Crazy Joe who keeps to himself and doesn’t take being intruded upon well. Yet this tumultuous beginning gives way to an unusual relationship between two people with completely different personalities.

Kelsey is a character that is really easy to fall in love with. She has a bright and sunny disposition to go along with her hardworking and self-respecting nature. Joe on the other hand is someone who takes time to grow on you. His reclusive nature and the barriers that he has up in place indicates a tortured past giving the readers time to get used to him. The relationship between these two is absolutely adorable. I liked the fact that they took time to really get to know each other first.

The plotline is pretty much predictable but the content keeps you engrossed. The lead characters are well developed to make the readers feel invested in their lives. The language and narrative of the author feels like a style that is developed over the years even though this is the first time that I am reading a book by this author. The book has a lot of drama and some romance making it an entertaining read. The only thing off putting was the way too clichéd moments in the book.
