Hannah Hooton put a lot of research into horse racing in this story. Every detail about the racing world is carefully noted and used to create a realistic story. I have read multiple stories where the author writes about racing, but doesn't even have pure thoroughbred horses racing in thoroughbred only races!

Not only has she researched her story well, she has created an interesting plot with multiple twists that keeps a reader reading from beginning to end. This story is a romance that is not only about the romance, but also about the world around the romance, which is the racing world of England.

Unlike stories such as Walter Farley's Black Stallion series, you never know if the horse is going to win. Every race puts the reader on the edge of the seat waiting to see if the horse wins. That, combined with the after affects of the races on the lives of the people around creates a novel that twists and turns while keeping its major goal in mind.

I would highly recommend this story to fans of romance or horse stories for its well written romance set in the world of horse racing.

I found this book to be a very enjoyable read and I am looking forward to more Hannah Hooton books. I know absolutely nothing about horse racing and even though this is a fiction book, I felt I got a peak into the behind scenes workings of that sport.

This book seems to be written after much studying of the goings on behind the scenes of horse racing, which I enjoyed very much. However I gave it a rating of only 3 or maybe 3.5 because I felt the story had a very slow, long boring start. My love for horses, reading about horse racing and the affects it has on many peoples' lives pushed me to read on. About 1/3 the way through, the twists and turns began along with the romance bringing on a more enthusiatic story. I am glad to have completed the book as it did bring about many details that can and quite possibly do occur in some of the stables at times. It was a very well written story and I would recommend it to anyone who loves horses, but I will worn you, it may bring you to tears at times.

It was very refreshing to read At Long Odds - it's not often that I find an author who can write about racing without me wanting to pull my hair out!! But Ms Hooton gets it right and I also appriciated the humour found on several pages.

I will deffenitely be recommending this book to my friends and I'm very much looking forward to reading future books by Ms Hooton.

Loved it! Hannah Hooton brings her characters Ginny & Julian to life in this fabulous equine romance. Add a couple of dubious exes into the mix, a promising racehorse or three, a good swig of champers and you have all the ingredients for a perfect storm. With a feel good factor of 10/10, it's definitely worth the read 😊

Though I'm not so sure this is a realistic possibility of a small racing stable's success, it was an enjoyable read. The fact that the setting was in England and I have no background in thoroughbred racing may have helped me feel comfortable with the developing story. I enjoyed the support of family and stable hands, the less than confident but feisty Ginny fighting to help her family's business, and the characters' slowly evolving attitudes towards each other. The romance part was not too syrupy and fit the tenor of the rest of the story. I'd read more of this author.

A different kind a book for me, but a delightful story. Set in England, I could almost imagine the excitement and challenges of horse racing. The heroine is headstrong and somewhat stubborn. She comes home after her father becomes ill and takes over the management of his horse training business. A usually male dominated territory, it is a struggle for the heroine to gain the respect of her peers. She has a love and hate relationship with her rival and neighbor, but the mutual attraction in very evident. An enjoyable read.

This is a great book. Hannah Hooton is a great author. If your not from England, reading this story just sucks you right in and puts you right there in the middle of the action. Highly recommend this book.
