Publisher's Summary

Kelsey Byden grew up believing her mother had died when she was three. Now at 26 and freshly divorced, she receives a letter from her mother explaining that she is alive and living on a Virginia horse farm. Deeply stung by lies told to protect her, Kelsey takes her anger out at her college professor father by going to visit her mother, who Kelsey learns spent over 10 years in prison for murder.
But there are more secrets to be found out and Kelsey decides to stay at her mother's splendid horse farm where she falls in love with horses and the man next door, handsome gambler Gabe Slater. When murdered men and injured horses turn up, Kelsey finds evil lurking where she least expects it, and risks all to restore her mother's honor.

Needs a different narrator.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I think book would have been well served by having had a different narrator. I'm about an hour into the book, and even though I've read this story before (and enjoyed it), I'm having a hard time with the audio version. The narrator seems to have a very small range of character voices at her disposal, and that makes it hard to tell who is who. On top of that, there is very little inflection in the voices, so it's hard to tell if the character is feeling remorse, excitement, concern, interest, etc.

Would you be willing to try another book from Nora Roberts? Why or why not?

Sure - I read a lot of Nora Roberts books. I'd give another one a chance.
