    "After I tell you how cute this book is and how it's a great summer beach/pool/lake read (it was!), I have to point out that this blurb just doesn't fit the book (of course, I did get the blurb off the back of an ARC but it's also like that on Amazon, so I'm not sure if they changed it for the printing or not). First off, while Laurel is one of the two main characters, she's not the one telling the story. That quote in italics up there? Is from Aspen, the main-main character and the one telling the story (in first person). Now, Laurel, she's the spark plug, the "naughty" (more adventurous and bored than anything) one who drags Aspen into all kinds of trouble over the summer but she's not actually doing any of the telling."

    ""Opal Dreaming" is as much about a young woman's love of horses as it is about romance, and for that reason it'll be very enjoyable for any young teenager. The potential romance with Luke will keep you guessing, all the while hoping her once-in-a-lifetime horse can come home. Great wrap-up for the series."

    "Racing Savannah was a book I read in literally two nights. I had never read a romance that takes place in a horse-racing backdrop, and I found myself enjoying learning the ins and outs of horse racing almost as much as I enjoyed seeing Savannah and Jack's relationship develop as the story progressed. One thing I love about this author is that she portrays people realistically. Most people in the story, just like most people in the real world, are a mixed bag - and yes, there are exceptions like the creepy son of one of the horse owners. Overall though, Racing Savannah succeeds not just with the main protagonists' relationship but also the side characters which Kenneally puts in to enrich the story."

    "Diamond Spirit is well-written, but it is not for me. I feel as though it's targeted at a very specific demographic, one that I do not fall under. It's hard to relate. The thing is, it could be relatable -- sub any beloved pet for the horse in this story -- but is instead pigeonholed toward a very specific subset."

    "I love reading anything by Tiffany King, and Wishing for Someday Soon was next on my list. This is the best I've read from her so far, and that's really saying something since she's one of my favorite authors! Katelyn goes through a lot but she's so strong and that's an inspiration to me. If you love YA romance, if a rural setting would just be icing on the cake, then check this one out. You won't regret it."

    "I read this book because my teenager picked it up and the cover was a little suggestive. It was a good story and I actually recommend it for teens and older folks like me. Good stories come in all sorts of books and when you find one, it doesn't matter who the audience is suppose to be. Looking forward to the next one in the series."
