London waitress, Pippa Taylor has no interest in horses or country-living. But when she inherits Peace Offering, a hopeless racehorse, she embarks on a career change in order to see her late uncle’s wish to run him in the Grand National come true. But having talked her way into a job as racing secretary to champion National Hunt trainer, Jack Carmichael and moved to the West Country, Pippa finds herself faced with more daunting obstacles than even the Grand National can throw at her. Most take the form of Jack, her moody boss. Although easy on the eye, he's certainly not easy on the ear. And after a Christmas they would both rather forget, danger and deception threaten Pippa’s life in the country. As her time at Aspen Valley Racing Stables draws to its conclusion she discovers Peace Offering is not the only thing she must fight to keep.

Five Boundless Stars

I'll be honest, I'm not normally into sporting books like this, but I'm so glad I was able to read this one. It is wonderful beginning to a promising series. Pippa comes from London to Aspen Valley Stables, located in a small country town, after her uncle left her some racehorses and a little broke down cottage. She meets her beloved horses and while one is sold she falls in love with the other horse, Peace Offering. While clearing out her cottage she realizes her uncle had big dreams for Peace Offering. Who was she to dash those dreams? So she decides to move into the little cottage with sights to fix it up and begins working at Aspen Valley Stables. She wants Peace Offering to have his chance and to live up to her uncles dreams. Along the way her boss Jack opens up a whole new set of problems. Shes soon hopelessly in love, but this love isn't an easy one too have. I loved this book! The love, hope, and peace that Pippa feels for her horse is amazing and heart wrenching. It was hard not to fall in love with her as a character. Of course, the horses stole my heart as well. If you are an animal lover it will steal yours too. Keeping the Peace was full of love for animals, hard times, friends, romance, and love. It was a great beginning. I can't wait to read the other books in this series.
