Long and Short Reviews
This book. What can I say about this book because holy crap it was so good. Finley and CJ are two very complicated characters each with their own secrets that threaten to complicate their budding relationship. This slow burn romance is utterly mind blowing with a mixture of mystery and animals that will keep you in your seat and on the edge of it.
I read this book in one day because I literally could not put it down."

"Read it in one evening!
I’m generally a rabid reader of historical fiction, cerebral British mysteries/police procedurals, or weighty nonfiction, so this was a bit of an adventure into previously unexplored territory for me, but it was wonderfully enjoyable! Her writing style engages the reader from the first chapter and the multi-faceted characters were extremely well developed. This book felt like a good suspense novel with just the right amount of relationship building between strong main characters. The intelligent, accurate, well-written horse scenes did much to help create a vision of the world the characters inhabit, along with the detailed description of small southern town life. Great read!"
