About the book:
She has everything her heart desires . . .
except the one thing money can't buy
A Love of Her Own is the eagerly awaited concluding book in Maggie Brendan’s Heart of the West series. Available in June 2010, it will take readers on an adventurous, spark-filled ride through love in turn-of-the-century Montana.
It’s here, in Lewiston, Montana, where April McBride travels to attend her brother’s wedding. Still cautious after a broken engagement, she fully intends to guard her heart. One look around the small mining town convinces April that doing so won't be difficult—just a bunch of dusty shops, bad service, and ill-bred cowboys. But a run-in with horse trainer Wes Owen opens up vast possibilities for frustration, embarrassment, friendship, and . . . love?
Can April and Wes see past their differences to envision a future together? Or are they destined to live the rest of their lives alone?
A Love of Her Own by Maggie Brendan,
Book 3 in the Heart of the West Series.

The Heart of the West series book three. I read book one and then this one. Maggie is an excellent author. This story “A Love Of Her Own” is a book full of love, forgiveness, accepting people for who they are and lots of fun and hardships.
This book is a light read , I especially like this kind after I’ve read a good murder mystery.
April McBride, is on a journey, not only in miles, but also in growing and learning to be a better person. April had a very snooty personality at the beginning and didn’t care about anyone else’s feelings or hardships some people have to go through. She was a very spoiled, rich girl, who got anything and everything she wanted. More than anything April loves horses and working out on the ranch. That’s her one redeeming quality at the beginning.
Then April came West to see her brother get married and had many adventures-both good and bad. Right at the wedding she meets Wes, who is another lover of horses, but doesn’t care about money or much else. When two stubborn people get together you know there will be bedlam. So enjoy this book and see if Wes and April can become more than friends. Come and meet all of the sweet, caring people of this quaint little town in Montana. I was quite taken with Miss Margaret and her sweet and precious love she gave to everyone. You will want to read this book if you love a good romance. Recommended to all.
