" Well, I think if I read the preface/acknowledgements correctly, this is J.R. Ward's first book (that has been re-released, I think). If so, that explains the weakness (if you can call it that) of the book. The promise of the brilliant writer that she is is most certainly there but the voice, that magical recipe that every writer craves, has not taken full form. Where her writing now is seamless and fluid, the writing in this book is not. Great story but less character development than we are used to. All in all, it's a nice first book with some great images of the horse show jumping crowd. You KNOW that story will have a happy ending because it does follow the formula. But, it was a 'good' happy ending. "
