's review

it was amazing

I am a big fan of Penelope Janu’s stories and this one had me flying through it, I loved Finn and Jet, these two were meant to become a couple even if they had a few issues and the odd dispute along the way before they found that beautiful HEA. I think you should clear your calendar when you pick this one up because you won’t want to put it down.

Jemima Kincaid is a farrier, she is a quiet woman who works hard, loves her job and is loved by all in the small town of Horseshoe Hill, she is such a strong and beautiful person but oh so vulnerable, life has been pretty tough on Jet as she is known to all of her friends but she moves forward and is very independent, so when the handsome Finn Blackwood shows up to ask questions about something from her past Jet is very wary, and it shows.

Finn Blackwood is a geneticist and vet who specializes in wild animals and is working at the Dubbo Plains Zoo, he travels a lot with his job, but has been asked to investigate the death of some race horses and this means getting to know Jemima, and getting close to her is not easy even though he is drawn to her, but getting behind the wall that she has built around herself and getting her to open is going to be difficult.

This story has a lot to recommend about it, beautifully written, with characters who feel like family and friends, the emotions that flow through the words will pull you in, the love that grows between Finn and Jet is a slow burn, I felt for Jet so much and she so deserved to find love and happiness and Finn showed her that opening up and leaning on someone else would be OK, and Finn man what a hero a little alpha here and there but with a beautiful heart. There was danger and a mystery to uncover, then you have the setting the animals at the zoo all bring this story together fabulously, it really is compelling and a must read, I loved this one thank you MS Janu for another keeper, Jet and Finn will stay with me for a long time to come.
