Where Love Lives:The Inheritance (Wyoming Wildflowers, Book 6)
Six years ago, rodeo cowboy Matt Halderman looked at himself and didn’t like what he saw. Especially not after he ran out on that spunky, wide-eyed student he’d just met. He didn’t run far, falling into conversation with a stranger in the pre-dawn stillness of a Wyoming truck stop. That conversation – along with seed money that mysteriously arrived just when he needed it – turned the course of Matt’s life.
Now he’s received a letter announcing that the stranger he’d met in that diner had been billionaire Harold Hopewell. Hopewell had traveled the world, encountering people and letting their stories touch him. In death, he is giving back, leaving an unusual will filled with life-altering bequests to the people he met along the way.
It turns out the recently departed billionaire isn’t done changing Matt’s life. This time with an inheritance that will allow Matt to go home to do something he’s long dreamed of – caring for rodeo horses at the end of their lives.
Zoe Parisi hasn’t forgotten Matt Halderman or the night he walked out on her. Couldn’t even be called a one-night stand, since the man hadn’t stuck around for the whole night. She lost her head that night, but it’s been squarely back on her shoulders ever since. She’s a doctor now and is on track to take over an established practice in Knighton, Wyoming, the much-loved hometown of her grandparents.
She’d been sure when she decided to settle in Knighton that Matt would never return to the ranch where he grew up. But now, here he comes, waltzing back into town … looking just as good as ever and with a bunch of money.
Zoe wants nothing to do with Matt or his good looks … but his money’s a whole different matter. What does he need with this inheritance when he already has so much? She, on the other hand, knows exactly how to use those funds to make desperately needed improvements to medical care for all the people around Knighton.
Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged western beauty of Wyoming - and so do the women..

We're all products of our comparisons. What we think of ourselves, the way we feel and how we behave are affected by the comparisons we make. The comparison-generating properties of social media mean this is more relevant today than every before.
Our comparisons also influence the everyday decisions we reach, often to our disadvantage. From eating to investing, driving to buying and working to dating, we can use them far better than we do.
In the "Power of Comparison" you'll learn how to tackle the mental health problems comparisons can cause as well as ways to turn them to your psychological, physical and financial advantage. It's an essential manual for better living in this exciting, yet challenging, new era.
Personal account of work related experiences, with reflections on childhood, education, career, and wisdom over a lifetime. Noteworthy thoughts from a successful, energetic, active anesthesiologist. Disclaimer: This book is based on the writer’s interpretation of his life and his career in medicine. Many names, places, events, and dates have been changed. Everything is seen through the prism of the writer’s memory. Nothing can be assumed to have actually happening as described. Jonathan Kelley was born in Boston, and educated at Exeter and Princeton, then Harvard Medical School, after a year teaching English in Cali, Colombia. He was a Navy doctor during Viet Nam. He spent the middle decades of his life working in a community hospital in Northern California. An anesthesiologist by training in his conventional career, he is a chef, pianist, and actor in his artistic life. He performed thirteen seasons between 2005 and 2018 as Mr. Cormack, in Spanish and English in a Christmas play, "Too Many Tamales," produced by the Bilingual Foundation of the Arts in Los Angeles. He portrays a desert hippie commune leader "Gary" in the 2019 movie, "Amor en 266 Millas,” and mental patient "Stan" in the 2014 film "Beauty In The Broken." In addition to playing the occasional piano gig, he cooks with coconuts, creates hats, baskets, and placemats from coconut palm fronds, and makes bowls from coconut shells. He bakes pies, and croissants flavored with coconut milk. Jonathan is re-inventing himself as a neon artist, first with a neon coconut palm tree, then with "Newgrange Neon Spiral," patterned after a rock-carved spiral in front of a 5,000 year old megalithic tomb in Ireland. Jonathan's wife is the lovely Puerto Rican actress Gloria Laino. They share a life together as richly contrasting as the flavors of Puerto Rican arroz con gandules served next to New England style cranberry sauce, all seasoned by their border collie, Wonder.
