They say you should never go back, but glamorous Ronnie Percy did just that, to the home she ran away from with her lover.
But not everyone is finding it easy to forgive and forget.
Daughter Pax, fighting for custody of her small son as her own marriage disintegrates, is furious to have to spend New Year’s Eve waiting for some stranger her mother has invited to help run the family stud farm.
Even more annoyed is the staunchly loyal stud head groom, Lester. Does Ronnie think he’s lost his touch with the horses? And anyway, who is this so-called Horsemaker, Luca O’Brien? Why does he seem to be running away from something? And what is the true story of his relationship with grey stallion Beck, once destined for the Olympics, now broken and unrideable, screaming his anger from the Compton Magna stables.
*Non Spoiler Review*
I may be one of the only reviewers who found this book too long. There were too many characters in this book that I found it hard to follow the story. I would have preferred to follow Pax, Luca’s and Ronnie’s story only. While the theme and storyline had substance, I felt that Walker spent most of the time building everyone’s storyline that the end of the book felt rushed.
Overall, if you love a strong character building story then this book could be for you.
