Finding Her Voice

Finding Her Voice 
By Donna Gartshore 

Bridget Connelly has a dream of owning her own business - one that involves helping dogs and people. There is just one problem - she needs to come up with the money to make it a reality. And she needs to overcome the doubts her ex-boyfriend has planted in her mind. When her boss Dr. B as everyone refers to the local veterinarian, decides to put her business up for sale, Bridget can see her dream beginning to crumble before her very eyes. And when the auditor, Dr. Burgess hired, takes an interest in the same property, Bridget sees it slipping even farther away.

But Sawyer Blume has his own reasons for this trip away from his home. The sudden loss of his wife and his daughter's traumatic experience has left him seeking something new. Delilah isn't the young girl she was before her mother died, and Sawyer will do anything to bring back the rambunctious young girl she was - even if it means staying in Green Valley. Just leaving his former life behind isn't as easy as it sounds, especially as he works for his family's business. But the connection Delilah makes with Bridget's dog Sophie. Could Green Valley help him find what he's lost? Or is it merely a wishful dream?

When both Sawyer and Bridget's plans for the clinic are threatened, can they work together to come up with a plan to help them both? Or will Bridget's past keep her from accepting help from anyone?

Finding Her Voice is an appropriate title for this book as it has meaning for both Bridget and Sawyer's daughter Delilah. This is a contemporary romance that deals with the aftermath of abusive relationships, traumatic experiences, loss, and PTSD. Yes, there is a whole hodge-podge of issues dealt with in this book by various characters, but that isn't the focus of the story, so that it gets weighed down and depressed. No, it deals with these issues but in a way that provides hope of healing. 

This author is one that is new to me, so I went into the book with no expectations of any kind other than what the book description provided. Donna Gartshore's writing is well executed. She gives her characters depth and provides a detailed setting. The subject matter was well presented. This is a Love Inspired publication, so there isn't any detailing that should be triggering to readers. Overall a good story that I would recommend.

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that provide my honest opinion - all thoughts presented are my own.
