SYNOPSIS: (From Goodreads)
An independent blonde seeking a fresh start.
Orphaned and unhappy, Ally Hunter makes a life-changing decision to move across the country to a small town that once felt like home. As she reinvents herself, she realizes there’s one part of the equation missing—love. However, a tragedy from the past makes her hesitate when it comes to giving up her heart.
A betrayed man looking for a sense of pride.
Abandoned by his first love and family, Ronan has one friend he can truly count on—his two-hundred-pound mastiff, Henry. When he returns home from service in the National Guard, though, he finds his entire life catapulted in a different direction with the disappearance of his beloved dog.
A loyal four-legged friend who will unexpectedly bring them together.
When Henry, Ronan’s brindle mastiff, finds himself far from home, Ronan sets out on a journey to bring him back. However, as the trail to Henry leads Ronan to Ridgewood, Virginia, and an interior designer with a big heart, he’ll realize some hardships lead to beautiful discoveries.
The Trail to You is a sweet stand-alone romantic novel.

I was so excited when I got an email from the author asking me if I would read her newest book. I have been waiting patiently for her next book to come out and I couldn’t wait to get started.
Ally has just recently moved to a new town in Virginia. She is looking for a fresh start after the traumatic death of her parents a little over a year ago. Ronan has to go away on deployment with the National Guard in Pennsylvania. He leaves his dog, Henry, with Monica. He returns from deployment to find his house empty and Henry is nowhere to be found. Ronan looks everywhere for his dog eventually finding the rescue where Henry was dropped off. The people at the rescue can’t tell him who actually adopted Henry. Ronan eventually tracks him to the town that Ally lives in. Little does Ally know that he is searching for the dog that she just begrudgingly adopted. Ronan finally tracks Ally and his missing dog. Sparks fly between them. He wants his dog back and Ally is not prepared to give him up. Ronan stays in town for a bit and asks Ally if she can watch Henry while he went back up to Pennsylvania for National Guard drills. When he returns, he tells her that he is moving to the town permanently and asking if she wants to have joint ownership of Henry. Ally is over the moon and agrees. Will Henry throw two lost souls with walls around their heart together? Will they realize they are soulmates before it’s too late?
This book was fantastic. I started to read it about 3 months ago but stopped because I had another book due that I had to read. Once I came back to it I finished it in about 1.5 days. It was so good. The characters are well rounded and have believable issues. Once again, the romance is good and clean. It’s a book that I wouldn’t mind if my mom or kids read when they got older. Let’s be honest if this author wrote absolute drivel and I would still read it. I love her writing style that much. I will be waiting patiently for the next book with bated breath.
