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.

  • Great story line

    By 1Alannah
    What a heart warming and heart breaking love story. The childhood abuse of the main male character,Declan, scarred not only his body but his heart. Kelsey had no depth to her love both for her rescue horses and for Declan. This book leaves you with a good feeling and hope that abused children can someday be whole again.

  • Worth the Read

    I was heartbroken reading Whisky River Rescue written by Justine Davis. It is a heart wrenching story of healing from abuse and mistreatment; whether it’s the horses that Kelsey Blaine rescues or the childhood that Joe Kilcoyne escaped and survived. These two face life differently; with Kelsey feeling hopeful while Joe escapes reality, not allowing anyone to get under his skin. This story really resonated with me, exemplifying that hope and love does exist. I struggle, on a daily basis, to understand how someone could abuse, neglect, or mistreat another person or an animal. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
  • Emotional

    I really loved this story. It's full of emotion and the relationship that develops between Declan and Kelsey is beautiful. He's a reclusive writer who survived a horrific childhood and doesn't really know how to love or trust. She works as a horse rescuer. Her tenderness, kindness, brutal honesty, and persistence slowly tear down the walls Declan has built around himself. The story is very well done and I recommend this one to everyone.

    Kelsey, horse rescuer finds out the land she lives has been sold, to her neighbor Crazy Joe the recluse. No one has ever interacted with Joe until Kelsey, but that is the way he wants it. Kelsey soon gets to know Joe and all of the trauma that he has gone through in his life. Their friendship develops into so much more. Kelsey is a very strong willed person and will not back down. Joe has lived a horrific life and I loved how Kelsey helped him with is demons from the past. A great story that I read in one evening. I highly recommend.

    Tule can chalk up another good read. I really like to read their cowboy stories. I just hope I won't run out of tissues! Kelsey has her own equine rescue. She rented a barn and lived on the property of Jim, who is old and has sold the property. She panics and who wouldn't. She goes to the agent and runs back home, which is a run down shack. She finds a crew pushing her home over. Major Spoiler! She races to the owner and trespasses to go to yell at him. Major Spoiler! She goes back to the agent who is trying to calm her down. Major Spoiler! She finally finds what is going on and goes around with apologies. Declan, or Joe, won't come out. He had a horrid home life. His mother tortured him because he wasn't what she wanted. He ran away at 14 and found a friend to help him. Spoiler. Kelsey knows he can get over his fears. She finds out who he really is. Spoiler. He comes out when lightning causes a fire near the barn and horses. Major Spoiler! I like this story. There is a story line here and so keep the tissues close. This is a story for most people who like westerns. Don't let it get away! Enjoy reading this book! I volunteered to read and review this book.
