Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.
After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit, he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.
How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll be there only long enough to break it? So Harper and Aidan agree: try to keep it professional, and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way, they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And, as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.
Yessss, finally Harper’s story! After reading The Start of Something Good and A Brand New Ending, I was happy to see that Harper also got her happy ending. We also see Ethan and Mia, Ophelia and Kyle and of course also Chloe in this book! Yay, one happy reunion. Sigh.
And still, the stories of the Stay series about the Bishop siblings are all very different. That is probably why Jennifer Probst is one of my favorite authors! She keeps us on our toes, because we really want to see what is happening between Harper and Aiden. I was rooting for Aiden to win Harper over, but she wasn’t convinced easily. When you read about her past and her story, you can’t help but fall in love with them. So, of course, five out of five stars from me and a thank you to Netgalley for providing the arc.
