Della is a great story-teller, and I certainly hope she will be writing more books in the future - luckily, we still have her short stories and serials to keep us going until then.
A great second novel - let's hope she'll be writing more soon.
I thought the plot was well crafted. Although the outcome is inevitable, there are developments that I was not expecting, and it makes a good light read. I found Vanessa quite believable, if naive at times. However I found it difficult to believe in her husband, who becomes increasingly more unpleasant through the book.
There's a 'hero', of course; his main passion is horses, and he’s quite rude at times. There are some likeable minor characters, too, who help to flesh out the novel.
On the less positive side, I felt at times as if I were being ‘educated’ too much about horses and show jumping, topics in which I have no interest whatsoever. The research was thorough and the writing realistic, but most of the information wasn’t relevant to the story. The other thing that bugged me was one detailed ‘intimate’ scene - something that happens in so many women’s fiction books these days, but which then makes them unsuitable to recommend to young teenage friends (and some of my adult friends) who might otherwise enjoy them.
Still, it’s a good story overall in the 'chicklit' style, and the ending was entirely satisfactory. Three and a half stars would be fairer.
It's well written, with a clever, hugely believable storyline and some realistic, well drawn characters. Garrin is especially fanciable! Hated her two-timing husband, Richard, though... but then, we aren't meant to like him!
That's all I'm telling you. No spoilers from me. Suffice to say, it's a gripping, yet quite light-hearted roller-coaster of events. However, there are a few shocks along the way. It will certainly keep your glued to your Kindle until the satisfying ending.
I look forward to reading more of your novels, Della.
