Book Review: Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally
Savannah's life is horses. Her father has always been a horse trainer, and with the opportunity to train better horses (and make more money) he has moved Savannah and his pregnant girlfriend from West Virginia to Ceder Hill Farms in Franklin Tennessee. This is a great opportunity for her father, but for Savannah it means life away from her old job, and starting a new school two days before her senior year.
Complicating things more is Jack Goodwin. Gorgeous, confident and the owner's son, he's totally off limits, however there is a spark between the two of them making it hard for Savannah to stay away. He has a reputation as a player, and the stories that the maids tell make Savannah know she might just be another notch on his bedpost.
It's Jack who gives her a job on the ranch, and it's Jack who wants to train her as a jockey when his horse Star responds to Savannah, and not the other male jockeys. This is a great opportunity for Savannah, but can she take these risks without getting hurt? Her father hates that she is putting his livelihood on the line with her relationship with Jack, and with Cindy close to giving birth they can not afford to be out of a job.
Racing Savannah is one of those sweet romances with a bit of family drama that readers will quickly devour. If you've read other book is the Hundred Oaks series, you won't want to miss this one. Even if you haven't read the other books, there's nothing you'll need to know to understand Racing Savannah. Characters pop up, and there might be a few minor spoilers, but in the end you might just want to know how those two ended up at the alter!
I'll see you @ the library!
