Heartbreak Cove by Lily Everett (Sanctuary Island #3)

Sheriff Andie Shepard may be new to Sanctuary Island but, like everyone else who comes here, she’s already fallen under its healing spell. Andie is determined to leave her mistakes behind her and make this scenic haven her home. But she just might have to change her plans—as well as open her heart—when an unexpected visitor shows up on her doorstep…
Caitlin is the ten-year-old niece Andie never knew she had. Silent, wary, and shy as can be, Caitlin only responds to the horses that run wild across the island. Andie has no idea how to deal with Caitlin—until Sam Brennan enters the picture. A tall, handsome loner who rehabilitates abused horses, Sam is able to help Caitlin break out of her shell. But that’s not all: He finds a way to touch something deep in Andie’s soul, opening her up to the healing power of love. Together, these three lost souls must face the darkness in their past to build a brighter future. Because here, on Sanctuary Island, anything is possible…
My review: Heartbreak Cove by Lily Everett
This is third book in the series.  I have not read the first two but I thought it stood alone.  There are some good moral issues brought up in this book. Is a horse property? Should powerful people be able to get away with anything? Is stealing anything can it be right? It made me think what do I believe? 
I figured out where the book was headed on the issue.
I think it is wrong to steal a horse.  But it is wrong to poison a horse.  I think we need stronger laws to protect abused animals. When I used logic it is wrong to steal than I think about my animals and they are more than things. They have personalities, feelings and want love. 
Sheriff Andie Shepard is surprised with a ten year old niece Caitlin.  Her brother never knew he was a father.  He was on his way shipped out to serve in military. Andie takes in Caitlin till her brother gets back.  She is single and up for relection.
I really like how Andie keeps reassuring Caitlin and how she explains about laws and rules.
Caitlin's mother died.  She loves horses especially Queenie.  She is learning to ride.  She had a hard first ten years. I like her. 
Sam Brennan has come to Sanctuary with Queenie a horse that needs physical and emotional help.  He is staying with his cousin.  Sam has a lot of secrets he is keeping to himself.  He has a problem with authority. He is teaching Caitlin about horses. 
Sanctuary Island has  wild horses and they are protected.  Only certain people can have anything to do with them.  So they can survive on the island.
I enjoyed reading Heartbreak cove and would love to read the first two books in the series.  The book is romantic, caring characters, thoughtful and makes you want to cheer.
I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and St. Martin's Press.  In return I agreed to give Heartbreak Cove a honest review.
