(45)If Wishes Were Horses by Robert Barclay

If Wishes Were Horses is a story about love, redemption, forgiveness, family, and peace.

It has been five years since Jason Powers drove drunk and forever changed the lives of two families. Not only did he kill himself, but he killed the wife and daughter of business man, Wyatt Blaine.

It has been five years and Wyatt is ready to re-open the equine therapy program for troubled teens that was his late wife's pride and joy. When his Minister asks him a favor, let the teen son of Jason Power's into the program, well it is a favor that is really hard for Wyatt to say yes to, but he does. Will letting Trevor Powers and his beautiful mom, Gabby, into his life be a huge mistake? Or will it save him from the grief that has been eating him alive for the last five years?

If Wishes Were Horses was a bit predictable, in the way that most Nicholas Sparks or Jodi Picoult novels are predictable. The writing was decent, but the predictability was just too much for me. That is just my opinion. I could be wrong.
