Take a female veterinarian and a horse trainer and put them together with Arabian horse shows you have quite the troubled romance going on with this story. Throw in a mystery that is someone trying to keep one of them from going on to the Nationals and you have a great story! I've had the fortune to see the Arabian World's show here in Tulsa after they moved here and Toni Leland nails the story with her descriptions of an arabian horse show. Another great horse related story by Toni!

Considering everything in the equestrian world, I know the least about arabians, so I couldn't tell you how accurate that world is described. The book was okay. Just okay. In this romance, there is so much longing and yearning and descriptions of hearts lurching I found myself rolling my eyes at least once a chapter. I 'd love to read more from Leland. I don't have any interest in the world of breeding/showing arabs, that may be why it fell flat for me.

I needed a nice, light, easy read during the power outage. Combining periphetic romance with Arabian horses in California fit the bill very nicely. And it was a very welcome contrast to "Heart of Darkness" with which I am struggling (in college I gave up on it, resorting to Cliff's Notes). Now I want to finish "Zelda," and delve into some European History, my college major, when the EU was but an emerging concept.
