5 Stars Out Of 5
August 4, 2010
I gave this book 5 stars for the interesting setting. I didn't know much about horses and Olympic riders, and these details made the book come alive. It's a sweet romance that most folks will enjoy. This is an author to watch.Cindy Thomson, author ofBrigid of Ireland: A Historical Novel
Set in Virginia against the backdrop of thoroughbreds and Olympic trainers, Wilkerson expertly draws her readers into the story, weaving a nice balance between the genteel world and suspense. And for one who doesn't read suspense, I thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced story. Novel Journey and I recommend it for a great summer read.
Sabotage centers around a topic I don't know very much about: Horses. But I really appreciate that the story is written with such depth that I learned about the topic without feeling like I was being taught. By the second half of the book, I felt like a horse expert. Emilie Gill struck me as a study in opposites. She was warm and cold; strong and weak; needy and independent...she felt like a combination of the me I show the world and the me I keep hidden--you too, I'd imagine.The love story was surprising. Usually, I expect the woman to be the spiritual one trying to win the man over to Christ. Not so in Emilie's case. She's the one who needs to find truth and Derrick, the handsome groom, is eager to lead her there. The suspense thread is scary and maddening. I can't stand not knowing things. LOL I really, really wanted to find out what happened--that's why I called it a page-turner and it also proves how invested I was in the characters.I highly recommend this book.
Just finished Sabotage. It was a fast paced, enjoyable story. I liked the christian theme throughout. Had suspicions of the villan before we actually discovered who it was, but didn't figure out why until the mystery was resolved. I look forward to reading Kit Wilkinson again.
