    This was a nice, sweet story, with a little mystery and suspense thrown in I listened to the Audible version and it was a good choice The narration was alright and the story was straightforward enough that I could listen while doing other things and I didn t get lost.McKenna leaves her legal career in New York City, heading to a small town in Kentucky to hide out She s on the run after seeing a horrible crime being committed at the hands of her boyfriend, her firm s senior partners and several prominent, affluent community members What she saw has the power to ruin lives and careers These men have no intention of ever letting her come forward with what she s seen.Will returned to his hometown when his father s health began to decline Despite having a successful career as a professional football player, his return was a foregone conclusion Taking over his family s horse farm was his dream and while football was nice, he was glad to return to the comforts of his home in Kentucky Not knowing anyone else in town, McKenna reaches out to Will, her childhood crush He helps her meet the townsfolk and get settled in In no time, the two have rekindled their...

    This book went from promising to annoying so quickly, it still has my head spinning, days after having read this book The premise and the general plot is good But the execution is below par What this book sorely needs, is a good editor who isn t afraid to tell the author when her writing sucks, and it needs some serious and heavy handed editing It really does have good parts, and it starts off with a really great plot But somehow, for 80% of the book, that plot is ignored Instead the author focuses on everyone worshiping the heroine And I do mean everyone.What I don t find believable, at all, is that McKenna is a stranger in the town, yet somehow she is loved by all Everyone is rooting for her, helping her, and generally treating her like a prodigy Not one person in the whole town is skeptical to this strange woman who came out of nowhere And no, I m not buying the vague her grandma knew his grandma excuse either.Another issue this book had, were the huge info dumps in the form of monologues Even early on in the book I skimmed skipped these Too much blah blah and my mind wanders Also didn t care much for the lengthy, constant repeats of what had happened earlier in the book I unde...

    Reading books like this always makes me question how delusional writers are And I m not talking dragons here, no siree I m talking about those wonderful women who bless us with instalove Guess what, fuck you all Meet McKenna sorry, Kenna something, who s a lawyer on the run, because she stumbled upon some sex ring involving her ex boyfriend and other powerful people in New York Or something like that No, really, this sex ring scandal comes up about 80% in Till you reach that point in the book, you re treated to the sexcapades of Kenna and her instaboy Will, who literally fell in love with each other the day they met And I literally mean literally They had this one fun week in New York some seventeen years ago, and they remember every single detail of it, and realise that they re soul mates or whatever It s this kind of shit that makes me question my life choices They proclaim their love for each other about halfway through the book, and they ve known each other for a few days, or maybe weeks ...

    I was only mildly impressed by this piece There is some interesting material in the first installment of the Bluegrass series but I also feel there is significant room for improvement Be warned, the following commentary contains spoilers To my mind, this is what you would get after combining Sweet Home Alabama, Did You Hear About the Morgans , Legally Blonde and Secretariat That is a whole lot of plot So many storylines present a hodgepodge collection of clashing components, the end result being a half baked mess with a multitude of unanswered questions For instance, why has Will Ashton never pursued a restraining order against his ex wife Why does McKenna and the entire population of Keeneston, despite being well aware of Whitney s false claim on Will, take the engagement at face value without so much as a phone call to her devoted lover Why, when a license plate hit leads to a vehicle reported stolen from the D.C area, does no one connect the dots to Senator Bruce and his demented daughter Why is any of this relevant to McKenna s trouble in New York And what does Boots racing career offer besides the opportunity to describe Derby fashion Plot should be simple Anything requiring than one or two sentences at no than two dozen words is too complex for a single publication Subplots are well and good but they should never detract from or compete with the central storyline Next item on the chopping block characterization Our twenty nine year old heroine, Mc...

    After celebrating her 29th birthday with friends, McKenna returns to her New York law firm late one night to collect some papers What she discovers is some serious heavy hitters including partners, senators, judges and her boyfriend gang raping a woman These powerful men think nothing of killing to protect their reputation and McKenna needs to be silenced She withdraws all her money and takes flight, finally landing in a small town in Kentucky where she meets Will, a breeder of champion race horses They are attracted to each other but Chad the ex boyfriend is hunting her and Will s ex wife is causing some trouble for him On top of it all someone is sabotaging Will s ranch and the prime suspect is his neighbor, a sheik who wants his land OKit s not all that original but the basic premise if done well would get 4 Stars, so I ll start there and deduct stars for some of the problems I have with this book 4 Stars Too Much Information This book is saturated with details that don t help the story at all Pages are spent describ...

    This book is an example of why people shouldn t get impatient and rush to publish their own books The writer and the story have potential, butthe problems really were unfortunate and would have been dealt with by a professional editor or perhaps the author herself if she set it aside for an extended period The problems 1 Too many glaring grammar and spelling errors and 2 Contrived conflicts and resolutions that were too convenient Perhaps someone in a new relationship would be insecure enough to believe an ex wife s claim, but Kenna didn t even call Will to chew him out or ask what the hell was going on And no one who has known this man and his manipulative ex wife for years doubts her claims, or even suggests that Kenna should speak to Will Come on I wouldn t let my 5th grade students get away with that in their stories My suggestion to Kathleen Brooks is to keep writing, congratulations on completing entire books, but don t put something out there before it s reall...

    A storyline with potential BUT the robotic sentence structure throughout this book drove me over the wall I just could not get comfortable with the style or lack thereof It is going well I am sorry, I wish I could go with you right now I am glad I ran into you The characters were well crafted and I actually really liked them There are two crimes to solve and you re kept wondering if they are related There s an ex wife who br...

    5 Bluegrass State of Mind Stars I read this book back in 2014, and this town has stuck with me So I had to do a re read to see if I liked it as much as I remembered and I have to say I liked it even McKenna is so down to earth, and I love that she is soo a city girl but she adapts to country life without a hickup She had to leave the city and is on the run as is her best friend Danielle they have seen somethings that put them in danger.I loved the tension and the mystery of this book, keeps you hooked I am a Will fan who wouldn t be he is just lush The whole community take McKenna in, not with open arms she does have to prove herself But once she does the whole town becomes her friend I can t even tell you how great it is to read a book that is just a sweet all round romance I loved it and I can t wait to continue the series 3 I forgot how much I love Eric G Doves narration, he does voice so well, From men women to old ladies I can t t...

    Reviewed for herding cats burning soup posting 10 22 State of Mind was pretty darn good The Gist The law firm Kenna worked for was involved in some shady stuff and when she found out her life was in danger and she had to go on the run Landing in a small town and trying to figure things out.Kenna and Will are good people Interesting, hardworking, caring Funny and sweet They d knew each other as kids and all these years later there s still a connection It was so fun watching them get to know each other again and how the whole town basically played chaperone and constantly cockblocked him Gave me some good chuckles There s suspense but it s pretty easy to figure out but it was still fun watching them deal with random attacks on the farm and such I enjoyed getting to see the horse racing It was fun and a little different Seeing the makings of a champion race horse, seeing the Kentucky Derby behind the scenes and from both the eyes of those who go all the time and a newbie It was quite fun The issues Editing Brooks needs to find a new editor Both books had a good bit of struggle in that department And while I liked seeing Kenna on her job as a lawyer I was bothered by the fact that both times women were brought up with charges of domestic violence they were given a slap on the hand and the judge Kenna were like well he deserved it No I m sorry Yeah ...
