To Win Her Favor
(Zondervan, May 2015)
A gifted rider in a world where ladies never race, Maggie Linden is determined that her horse will become a champion. But the one man who could help her has vowed to stay away from thoroughbred racing forever.
An Irishman far from home, Cullen McGrath left a once prosperous life in England because of a horse racing scandal that nearly ruined him. He’s come to Nashville for a fresh start, hoping to buy land and begin farming, all while determined to stay as far away from thoroughbred racing as possible. But starting over proves harder than he’d wagered, especially when Maggie Linden’s father makes him an offer he shouldn’t accept yet cannot possibly refuse.
Maggie is certain that her mare, Bourbon Belle, can take the top purse in the inaugural Peyton Stakes, the richest race ever run in America. Maggie only needs the chance to prove it. To give her that chance—and to save Linden Downs from being sold to the highest bidder—Maggie’s father, aging, yet wily as ever, makes a barter. His agreement includes one tiny, troublesome detail—Maggie must marry a man she’s never met. A man she never would have chosen for herself.

I just finished reading "To Win Her Favor" and I really liked the storyline and also the characters. Maggie Linden is a gifted horseback rider and she wants to race even though women never do where she is. She will need help to win but the man who can help her has said he will not race anymore. Bourbon Belle's Maggie's horse, she believes, is going to win. She talks her father into an agreement, so that she can race. He has decided that she will marry who he wants her to even if it means he has never met her. This is a story of stubborn people who have to try to work out their differences. This is "A Belle Meade Plantation Novel" series. I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for the purpose of a review by Litfuse Publicity Group and all opinions are my own.
Sounds like a great book!ReplyDelete
