The last thing she wants to worry about is the horse ranch her father owned. After a confrontation, Meg gives the manager six months to close the place down. Bo wants to dislike Meg for taking his future, but he can’t. Something about her makes him want to protect her. When some obstacles are tossed their way, Bo and Meg must take to heart their belief that God can see them though anything. (Bethany House, May, 384 pp., $13.99)
