An enriching story of family ties, broken hearts, and second chances from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.
When Ethan Bishop returns to the Hudson Valley, his body and spirit are a little worse for wear. As a former Special Forces paratrooper, he saw his fair share of conflict, and he came home with wounds, inside and out. At his sisters’ B & B and farm, he can keep all his pain at a safe distance. But quiet time isn’t easy when a fiery woman explodes into his life…
It’s business—not pleasure—that brings Manhattan PR agent Mia Thrush reluctantly to the farm. Tightly wound and quick tempered, Mia clashes immediately with the brooding Ethan. Everything about him is irritating—from his lean muscles and piercing blue eyes to his scent of sweat and musk.
But as the summer unfolds and temperatures rise, Ethan and Mia discover how much they have in common: their guarded histories, an uncontrollable desire, and a passion for the future that could heal two broken hearts. But will their pasts threaten their fragile chance at a brand-new future?
Yay! As a fan of Jennifer Probst, I was very excited to be granted an arc for a new series. The Start of Something Good is the first in a new series. And definitely not related to her Billionaire series or her Searching for series. It is a great read and the promise of yet another great series.
We meet Mia, a carreerfocused woman in the PR business of Manhattan, who reluctantly agrees to come to the Hudson Valley in the middle of nowhere, to keep an eye on Chloe, the daughter of her client. Jonathan Lake is running for mayor and Mia helps his PR. But now he has a serious problem, since his daughter has vandalized property at school and she doesn’t want to talk about the reasons why. Therefore she is sentenced to a summer of working on the range of the Bishop sisters.
Ethan has just returned home to the B&B horsefarm of his sisters, when he meets stuck up Mia. They clash immediately, but Chloe reminds him of himself. Therefore, Ethan takes Chloe under his wing, while annoying Mia further.
Mia is determined not to get aggravated by the handsome rugged cowboy. But somehow he gets under her skin. When Mia realizes they are more alike than she would have thought, the mutual attraction they feel grows into something more. Will these opposites attract or will they push each other away? Find out for yourself in this wonderful new read. Five out of five stars from me and a special thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
