The key to a successful horse farm is the trainer. At Bridgeton Pass, J. P. Ryan is that key. William Becker is determined to protect his farm and keep Ryan on the job.
That goal is threatened by two things – a sinister act by another employee and the fact that his only daughter has fallen head-over-heels in love with J. P.
Becker can’t allow either of those things to threaten his legacy.
Audra grew up around the handsome trainer and fell in love with him at a distance, enchanted by his kindness and honesty. When they began stealing private but innocent moments, she found that she didn’t want to live without him. Audra is heartbroken when she has to choose between honoring her father and pursuing love.
J.P. wants Audra by his side, but he finds himself with a hard decision.
He is forced to choose between his career and the love of his life. Between the problem caused by the troublemaking barn hand and the frustration caused by his desire for Audra, J.P.’s job has become a ‘crewel’ work.
The story of the Becker family is woven as an intricate Tapestry. It is beautiful as a whole, but like any tapestry, you have to turn it over and look at the back side to see how the threads of love and family relationships are woven together into one intricate whole.
Welcome to the Tapestry series.
First, let me start off by saying that I really enjoy cowboy stories. There's just something about a man in a Stetson and up in the saddle...yep. The characters were pretty well defined, but the flow of the story sometimes felt a little jerky to me, causing situations to seem forced. This was true also with the dialogue. My opinion, of course!
But, while some of it DID feel forced and odd, the situations themselves were very real and easy to imagine. And, it's kinda hard to go wrong with hot cowboys *wink wink*! I'm not sure if it was due to tiredness, but it seemed the sex scenes had a lot more detail and dialogue than anywhere else in the book haha!
Overall, I liked this book, and plan to read the next one at some point in the not-so-distant future.
