Book Review - Perfect Pair by Marilyn Conner Miles

Perfect Pair by Marilyn Conner Miles
Losing a job is tough, but losing a job and realizing you can’t afford your Seattle apartment anymore is a double whammy. When Amber discovers her parents can’t offer her more than a garage to store her furniture in, she realizes things are even worse than she thought. Her brother’s fiancĂ© tells her about a job pet- and house-sitting for a couple north of the city, and Amber feels like it’s her only option, even though she’s a city girl at heart.

The job turns out to be much more than she bargained for, but she discovers that life away from the city rush can be just as breath-taking. Especially when it comes to a certain farrier named Mick, who seems eager to tutor her in the care of horses, and maybe love, as well. Can Amber adjust to life at a slower pace, or will the lure of life in Seattle draw her back?

Amber isn’t one to take life’s obstacles sitting down, and I felt drawn to her character from the first page to the last. This sweet romance is a great reminder of how important it is to take on life’s challenges, even when they seem scary.

Book Review: The Spirit Path

The Spirit Path by Tammy Tate

Nicole is fresh out of a necessary break-up with her boyfriend, Eric. They had plenty of physical chemistry, but not much else. He loves the city life, wearing suits and living in a fancy apartment, while Nicole is a country girl. Her favorite pastime is riding her horse, Buck, across the wide open spaces of Texas.

One day, when Nicole and Buck head out on a ride, accompanied by her Rottweiler Harley, she finds herself tumbling with them into a startling adventure to the past. No romantic adventure would be complete without a man who has the physical chemistry and the sensitivity of her new protector, and Nicole finds herself hoping that this isn’t just a dream, even though this new (or old) reality seems impossible.

This romance is a quick read, and lovers of time travel, American history, horses, dogs, country music, and, of course, sensual pleasure will find themselves lingering over the rich details that Tammy Tate includes in this story. There’s plenty of steam and a bit of mystery in this tale, and at the end I found myself hoping that this is just the beginning.
