Chapter 7 got my hopes up a little that, even though it was super late in the story, I might finally see the character have something at stake, but then the book continued in its usual narrative, goals unsurmised. It read more like a slice of life than an exciting Thoroughbred story. I learned a lot about the Southern Hemisphere breeding practices, insides and outs, and it made me wonder how up to speed I was on what was practiced in North America.
Being that the book took place in Australia, some of the common terminology I'm used to was funny, just because of minute language differences. I understood the whole alarm on the head collar thing to alert a foal watch staff member that a mare was ready to drop, but I couldn't help giggling every time I read that the mare was alarmed.
Other than that, the writing was clean, and I did enjoy the book. Hoping for a little "more" in the sequel, No Hoof No Horse.
I thought Savannah was cute but also felt that she was missing something when reading her. While I definitely connected with her, I felt that something was missing. She almost felt a little flat to me. There were no real emotions that came from her. Everything was on an even keel. I mean, even when the mare was having a difficult labor and she, with the help of the new farrier, helped the mare deliver the foal, I didn’t get a real sense of joy from her. Like I said, flat. I couldn’t even get a good reading if she was interested in Craig, other than her stomach flip-flopping back and forth when she saw him
I also liked that while this is a Christian romance, religion wasn’t pushed down your throat. It was mentioned and just left at that, a mention. The only time that it even came up was when the new foal that Savannah delivered needed to be named and Craig suggested Twenty Three. For the Twenty-Third Psalm.
I do have a couple of questions that will probably be answered in the next books. Like, who was Jackson? I know he was a farrier but what on earth did he do to Savannah. Where was Savannah from? I get the feeling since Creole was mentioned, that she is from the States but it really wasn’t gotten into.
Other than my minor complaints, I did enjoy reading the book. The end of the book was not a cliffhanger but it did leave room for book 2.
