Horse Dreams Series

I read these three books by Stephen Bly and really enjoyed them. Memories of a dirt road town is the first, followed by the Mustang Breaker and Wish I'd Known You Tears Ago. The story takes place primarily in Wyoming. A forty-something schoolteacher from Indiana, Develyn Worrell, decides to spend her summer in Wyoming to get a different perspective on life and relax. She had gone there as a child with her family and had great memories of the trip. So she drives halfway across the country looking for the small town that she had spent time in without even knowing what it is called or exactly how to get there. While in Wyoming, Develyn has quite a few adventures that surprise her and make her summer vacation rather interesting. She makes lots of friends and acquires a horse AND a donkey. The stories are a mix between adventure and romance and make living in a small town seem like a great place. All three books made me laugh. They also made me wish that my life was filled with a little more adventure.
