An Isolated Range

An Isolated Range is a tender, heart-wrenching story by Andrew Grey and part of the Range Series.  An Isolated Range is by far my favorite book of the series. Quinn, veterinary assistant to Wally Shumacher (Shared Range) meets college student Marty when Marty arrives at the ranch to work and rehabilitate. Marty suffered a stroke while playing college basketball and is introduced to Dakota Holden, friend to his current doctor.  Dakota offers Marty a job on the ranch he co-owns with Haven and thus allows the young man to work and find himself among the non-judgmental.   Quinn immediately is smitten with him, but Marty is leery of a relationship with the cowboy.  Marty is not only in the closet but is the son of a prominent senator.

Andrew Grey’s descriptive writing left me over-whelmed with emotion as both Quinn and Marty find their way through the murkiness of a new relationship. The angst radiated from the pages as each baby step taken broke down more barriers, both physically and emotionally.  As with all the books in this creatively wonderful series, Mr. Grey indulges the reader with appearances of many of the previous characters.  Lovers, Dakota and Wally are an integral part of the story as well as Wilson & Steve and Phillip & Haven.  Of course, the story would not be complete without the larger than life presence of Dakota’s loving and stoic father, Jefferson. Throughout the series Jefferson has added a calm serenity to the stories, which culminated in An Isolated Range.
I laughed and was moved to tears as I read An Isolated Range.
Andrew Grey not only adds spirit to his characters, but they become a part of the reader’s life. 
I look forward to reading many more books in this masterfully crafted series.
