Title: The Amish Cowboy’s Homecoming
Author: Ophelia London
Publisher: Entangled, Entangled: Amara
Pub Date 27 Apr 2021
These stories are like a breath of fresh air – heartwarming, gentle and moving. In this second in the series set in the Amish community of Honey Brook, Grace Zook is somewhat unusual as she much prefers being outside training horses rather than being involved in what are more traditionally accepted feminine roles within their community. She’s still single and is hoping to take over the family’s horse farm when her father retires as she has a real talent at training horses. She’s annoyed when she discovers that, instead of trusting her to do the job, her father has employed Isaac King to train the four year old gelding that is supposably unbreakable. Isaac is decidedly unwelcome as far as Grace is concerned. Can learn to work together to soothe the troubled horse and will they learn from each other in the process?
With plenty of family drama, lovely horses and a delightful child, this is a lovely read that I thoroughly enjoyed. The feeling of community and insights into their way of life are delightful. It was lovely to see how things are developing for Lucas and Esther Brenneman, the couple from the first book in this series, Never An Amish Bride, but you don’t need to have read that to enjoy this story. There are great characters, some mischief, strong beliefs and lots of love in this great story, which I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into and have no hesitation in highly recommending.
Thanks to Entangled and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
What happens when a traditional horse whisperer clashes with an unconventional trainer within the charming Amish community of Honey Brook?
Grace Zook has always held a talent with horses, ever since she was a child growing up in her quaint Amish village of Honey Brook. Now, as an adult, she’s become a master trainer—but still struggles to prove to her father that she is worthy of taking over the family’s horse farm. With a fiery new stallion coming soon, Grace knows this challenge is her chance to prove she can finally take the reins.
When widower and horse whisperer Isaac King is offered the lead training job on a new farm out of town, he’s thrilled to finally make a name for himself and provide some permanent roots for his young daughter. But not only is the stallion seemingly unbreakable, so, too, is the owner’s headstrong daughter Grace, who has drastically different ideas about how to handle the impossible horse. Yet somehow, he can’t seem to get the confident, beautiful woman out of his mind…even though as his boss’s daughter, she is completely off-limits.
There’s too much at stake for Isaac to gamble his future on Grace…even though suddenly, he can’t imagine one without her.
