Romance is not my cup of tea. Maybe it’s because I’m too busy to think of nice and strong arms to embrace me, or because I prefer to chase monsters down the streets. I’ve never been interested in horses, either. But at times, it’s nice to dip your toe into a new pool and see what happens! And sometimes, you have a good and uncomplicated time with a story you thought weren’t for you but turns out to be able to release the pressure in your body.

This book kept my interest from beginning to end. The characters were people that the reader could relate to with similar struggles, highs and lows. It had a very human aspect that made the storyline plausible. Looking forward to book 2 in the series
And, yet, I had some issues with the execution.
The genre is hard to pin down. It's all well and good to say, "just go with the story." That's not how brains work. It's normal, as one reads, to make rapid-fire comparisons to everything else we've ever read. Part of us is with the story, another part is using cues ...more
Emma Grayson has suffered far more than any woman should have to and I immediately liked and sympathized with the character. In actual fact, the author does such a good job of forging a connection with the character and the reader that I found myself in emotional turmoil at times. Emma is sweet woman, however due to her past, she is untrusting – and understandably so. Therefore, at times she comes across a bit short.
To get to the crux of it, Emma ta ...more
Emma Grayson finds a job advert mysteriously left in her letterbox, and after an interview is offered what seems to be the perfect job of looking after the stables of a manor house. However very soon the reader (and Emma) is wondering why the Estate Manager is so against her, and gradually begins to wonder if everything is quite as it appears.
The first page throws the reader straight into the intrigue, and the story builds up gently and steadily, until mid-way through the ...more
I was however intrigued from the start, Georgia has a wonderful way of slowly and gently pulling you into the story so that you have to keep reading, you have to know ‘what happens next’.
Georgia has filled the book full of detail, maybe overly concise in a few instances, but then that may just be my view as this is, as I have sa ...more
Everyone is very helpful and the job and the facilities are very generous, all except the Estate Manager Trent who is cold and domineering. Emma wasn't his first choice of person for the job and he makes her feel li ...more
Although book 1, this is a full length standalone novel with no cliffhanger. A real page turner. ...more
too detailed. too long winded. too slow. too sad. it reads too much like a journal-from someone rather boring. I like horses. I like romance. this, I think is more fiction/chick lit. I was halfway thru- but still no romance. just not for me, as I expected romance. sadly a pass.
This book started out with a shocker and continued with one after another! It was a wonderfully written read! I love all the people in this book, the author has put a lot of thought into them because I felt like I was there with them and know each one personally! So thank you for this amazing book! I'm on to the next book in the series, can't wait! ...more
