POV: Third-person single perspective from heroine
Abby Knight’s promising start as a family physician is cut short by an abusive relationship. She leaves a painful past behind and trades the hustle and bustle of city living for the more sedate pace of country life.
She’s excited to join her Uncle’s family practice in Peace, and looks forward to many years working by his side.
As for relationships? Abby’s not interested. The only thing she cares about is establishing her medical practice and maybe finding a little bit of peace along the way.
However, a freak blizzard in May, quirky llamas, and a determined rancher have other plans in mind.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Abby and Drake…….
Finding Peace was a short story of new beginnings for Abby Knight. Abby had been through tough times in recent years; her situation was not getting better so she finally made the decision to start over in a new town. Leaving an abusive relationship, Abby finds herself on her way to Peace, Montana to work with her Uncle. Abby is a doctor and will eventually take over her uncle’s practice one day. But when she arrives, things with her uncle are not as she expected.
On her way to Peace during a snow storm, Abby finds herself stranded on the side of the road. This is where Abby’s adventure begins. Abby was lucky enough to be rescued from by a rugged, straight-forward, sexy rancher. At least I think he was a rancher. One of my disappointments was the extreme lack of information regarding Drake. Yes he was the hero but very little is known about him. I wished we had his POV. There were so many questions I had regarding Drake and not having answers was disappointing for me. This book is written in only Abby’s perspective and due to that, when the book was finished I felt that a lot of things went unanswered. I don’t want to say specifics because it might spoil things for you.
Although this novella is a standalone, I believe there is potential to continue this story. Maybe the author does have that in mind. If that is the case, I would definitely like to read more. That said, the writing was very good. The story flowed with good tension and there was no lack of interesting secondary characters that added wit and humor.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
