Where There's Smoke (Horse Country #3) (Paperback)
Welcome back to Paradise Ranch, where everyone can get a second chance, in this third installment of the Horse Country series by Pura Belpr Award-winning author Yamile Saied Mndez.
Carolina Aguasvivas knows just what to do with Paradise Ranch's new sponsored student, Rockwell Richards. He's clearly a perfect match for a gentle giant of a horse named Napoleon, as they both have mysterious pasts. Carolina can't wait to learn everything she can about the cute and thoughtful new boy...but Rockwell doesn't seem to appreciate her snooping -- or admiration.
When the barn is threatened by local wildfires, can he and Caro put everything aside and help keep the horses safe?
