"a lovely G-rated romance!"
Simone Littleton was considered mainly a quack by all the
trainers at the racetrack. Being an Equine Massage
Therapist, she used her skills along with a combination of
massage oils and herbs to calm down even the most stressed-
out horse. Her personal life was complicated and men
usually didn't like her kind of complicated. While she did
work for racer Trent Jones, everyone else laughed at her
Chet Wallace owned racehorses and was not looking for
anything but a winning horse. No time for anything else
but training and he is not about to put up with the "Crazy
Horse Lady" tending to his prized horses. His dog, Pollock,
has other ideas.
You see, Simone's little secret is that she can talk to
animals. It has made her the laughing-stock of the track
and has not been helpful in getting new clients. When Chet
yells at her in front of everyone for not telling him her
secret, it breaks her heart. The path to Simone's heart is
through her work with horses and the path to Chet's is the
same. Will they forgive and forget? You can never trust a
scheming Jack Russell Terrier.
This book is part 1 of a series titled Hoofbeats and
Heartstrings. Let's hope it is a long-lived series because
this book is G rated, and a lovely story!
