They’re from two different worlds.
He lives in the estate house, and she spends most of her time in the stables helping her father train horses. In fact, Savannah has always been much more comfortable around horses than boys. Especially boys like Jack Goodwin—cocky, popular and completely out of her league. She knows the rules: no mixing between the staff and the Goodwin family. But Jack has no such boundaries.
With her dream of becoming a horse jockey, Savannah isn’t exactly one to follow the rules either. She’s not going to let someone tell her a girl isn’t tough enough to race. Sure, it’s dangerous. Then again, so is dating Jack…
I can’t believe I waited so long to read Racing Savannah!
I really enjoyed Catching Jordan and though I had my issues with Stealing Parker (pervy teacher!), I still enjoyed it. I did pass over the third book in the Hundred Oaks series, but found that not reading Things I Can’t Forget didn’t impact my ability to read (and enjoy!) Racing Savannah. I think some very vague things were mentioned, but nothing that was a spoiler so if I want to go back and read the third book, I can! Warning though: there are definite spoilers for the first two books so just beware if you’re going to start the series here!
The thing that I really enjoy about this book series is how much I find that I can relate to the main characters! I know, right? Like, how could I possible relate to a female horse jockey?! But, I mean it in the, I relate to you as a person – I used to be a teenage girl myself!
Miranda Kenneally’s writing keeps me so engaged and connected as a reader. The Hundred Oaks books aren’t cookie cutter books with stereotype characters – they’re realistic fiction – nothing is a perfect happy ending.
I love love love this series and can’t wait for more! Breathe, Annie, Breathe (the 5th in this series!) is already out so I definitely plan to read it soon!
