BOOK CLUB THURSDAY: REVIEW: Bluegrass State of Mind by Kathleen Brooks
I can't believe another week has gone by already- so welcome back. If it's your first visit, I'm happy you stopped by and hope you'll return. Either way, thanks for stopping by this week. Today we are having a review(listed below).
Normally I post upcoming Thursday info at the end of my blog but I'm just too excited about what's ahead. So be sure to check back in May - it will be a month a filled with things related to RT Con (huge book lover's convention). We will be discussing past RT Conventions, New Orleans themed books, and plenty of giveaways(hint - some signed books from this year's convention).
Now for the review:
In the first book of the Bluegrass Series, McKenna Mason, a New York City attorney with a love of all things Prada, is on the run from a group of powerful, dangerous men. McKenna turns to a teenage crush, Will Ashton, for help in starting a new life in beautiful horse country. She finds that Will is now a handsome, successful race horse farm owner. As the old flame is ignited, complications are aplenty in the form of a nasty ex-wife, an ex-boyfriend intent on killing her, and a feisty race horse who refuses to race without a kiss. Can Will and McKenna cross the finish line together, and more importantly, alive?
I liked the idea of this book very much and was excited to read it. Sadly, it just missed the mark for me.
I couldn't get over my annoyance concerning the REPETITION.
I didn't mind some of the stereotypical things. The fact the relationship seemed a bit forced was not that big a deal but maybe that was because I wasn't invested in either character much. I think there was too much "telling" in the writing which made it hard for me to have any connection to the book in general.
Would I try another book by Ms. Brooks? Perhaps, because I see something I like- even if it's small.
So what did my best friends and fellow bloggers have to say?
