This is the first book in Kathleen Brooks' Bestselling Bluegrass Series.

She thought she would be safe far away in Kentucky…

McKenna Mason’s perfect life in New York City has just been destroyed. She is now a witness to a horrific crime involving some of America’s most influential men. She knows she must get away and can think of only one outsider that might help her—Will Ashton. The flame of their brief romance during their teenage years never completely died out, and now it is about to explode.

Trouble at every turn, a feisty horse that refuses to race without a good luck kiss, and three old ladies hell-bent on playing match-maker turn this newly rekindled romance into a wild race to the finish. Can Will and McKenna cross the finish line together, and more importantly, alive?

    Enjoyed this book very much. I love this author’s writing style and the fact that there isn’t any raunchy explicit sex in it. It’s a perfect reading without all that!

    I’ve read all of Kathleen Brooks Keeneston novels, starting with this one. When I first read it, it was so much work - the plot skipped all over the place, the narrator switched repeatedly from first to third person, and from one character to another with no warning. I wanted to keep going because I liked the story, but I nearly gave up because the writing itself was so convoluted. I’m glad I stuck it out, because the series gets better as it goes along. Now, a couple of years later, the book has been revised and edited so that it’s finally put together the way it should be. Kathleen Brooks is a great, if fanciful, storyteller, and this is where it all began.
  • Amazing read!

    I loved this book. Didn’t want to put it down. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
  • Plot equally as one dimensional as the characters.

    By HegEggLeg
    I started reading this because this was something I read a long time ago in the middle of my preteen years. I remembered my admiration for Kenna and my day dreams about meeting a man like Will and living on a ranch in a small town one day. Years later, however, I read this and see everything my prepubescent self didn’t see. I see Kenna, a perfect woman with perfect looks with a perfect personality and the love of everyone in town. I see an unrealistic venue in which a Saudi with no real personality for some reason chose to stay in a small town. Most importantly, I see unrealistic projections of romance and sentences as complex as Kenna’s one dimensional personality. In my opinion, this book was written with absolutely no attention to detail and completely insults the reader’s intelligence. How is it that after meeting a guy for the first time in 17 years, after almost being raped, having your life threatened by a man you loved, and knowing that you’re a witness to such a horrible crime, you suddenly fall in love after, what, one week? I love cliche romances. I’m a firm believer that cliches are cliches for a reason and that’s because they work. However, this book definitely needs improvement in the development of its characters, the realistic setting, the overall plot and the fact that any tension in the story relies on an unrealistically crazy and non-relatable villain, and finally, the overall pacing of the book itself. While I would spend an hour giving a step by step analysis on this entire book, unfortunately rating this book isn’t at the top of my priorities. I do, however, wish the author well and hope that she’s come a long way since this book. To sum up my feelings, this book was an eye sore and a completely disappointing read. Thank you.
