This novel was so easy to read, with each chapter flowing seamlessly into the next. Unlike countless other ebooks around, my ocd-afflicted eye struggled to find grammatical or punctuation errors. I found the grand total of none! This alone meant a huge thumbs up for this book.
Female protagonist Emma Grayson embarks on a complete change of life as she takes a new job caring for the family horses, complete with accommodation on the sprawling country estate, of a wealthy couple. Emma is relishing the chance of some solitude with only her faithful dog Susie, and new equestrian charges, for company. The country setting is picturesque, the horses a joy to ride and care for and her cottage charming. Emma, however, is about to get a whole lot more company than she bargained for!
I found the characters likeable and well written, the story great to read and a few surprises along the way. I did find a few parts rather predictable, but this simply meant that I didn't have to think too much. A steady easy to read novel and a week thought out start to the Grayson trilogy. I'll be looking out for the second instalment. 4/5.
