Where We Are by Annie McDonald

In this beautiful debut novel, Annie McDonald introduces Cassidy “Sid” Harris, a physically strong and intelligent art gallery curator who has been called home to her family’s ranch in Alberta Canada to help deal with cattle rustlers. She meets her new neighbor, Mia Jarvis, a dog trainer who is finding her way through intense grief. Mia’s best friend from childhood, Leah is there to offer her support as much as possible but is also battling an intense personal issue. Mia and Sid butt heads at times as Sid is a bit grumpy and cantankerous. The pair are drawn together after a severe bull attack almost kills one of them.

You would never know that this is a debut novel, McDonald writes creatively and reflectively and has created warm and believable characters. The dogs Flynn and Milo are scene stealers too.

Looking forward to her next novel! Thanks to NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
