Rhiann's Rescue by Gayle M. Irwin

Book 1 in the Pet Rescue Romance series

A story about family relationships, dreams for the future, rescue animals, and new romance …

Rhiann Kelly dreams of starting an animal rescue sanctuary, and her beloved grandmother desires to see her achieve that dream. However, they don't agree on when or where. Because of the older woman's health, Rhiann thinks it best they stay near large cities; Grams wants to return to Montana, where she was born and raised. During their annual winter trip to Arizona, the two women clash once again over relocating … as well as about Rhiann's lack of desire to date and potentially end up with another broken heart. However, when art gallery owner and nature photographer Elias Griffin steps into her life, Rhiann reconsiders. Can she maintain her decision to not become romantically involved with someone again and keep her eyes fixed on helping animals and caring for her grandmother, or will she decide Elias is worth the risk of possible heartbreak?

I absolutely loved this prequel! I loved Grams honestly and the way she has always been there for Rhiann.

This story answered SO many questions about Rhiann’s past and what life was like with Grams. Finishing Rhiann’s Rescue makes me want to re-read Rescue Road.. I fact, I’m going to do that now. – Casey Peeler, Amazon Reviewer
