All bets are off in this heartfelt romance by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.
Happily single, Harper Bishop trusts in only one passion—her rescue farm and healing her thoroughbred, Phoenix. Her dream is to lead him to the Triple Crown. But how unreachable is it without experience or help? A handsome new guest at her family’s B&B has what it takes to make it come true. And with his irresistible brogue, warm smile, and soothing touch, he’s a major distraction.
After a bitter betrayal, horse trainer Aidan O’Connor has fled Ireland for a vacation in New York’s Hudson Valley. When he sees the horse with the fighting spirit, he’s inspired with a new goal: to train Phoenix to win. He’s also facing an unexpected new challenge: his feelings for Harper.
How can she dare to open her heart to a man who’ll be there only long enough to break it?
So Harper and Aidan agree: try to keep it professional, and focus only on Phoenix and the finish line. But along the way, they could also learn a few lessons in love, trust, and taking chances. And, as painful as it promises to be, saying goodbye.
I’ve really enjoyed the Stay series by Jennifer Probst and All Roads Lead to You just hit me in the feels for multiple reasons!
We’ve met Harper Bishop in the first book The Start of Something New and I’ve really been intrigued by her. She is the youngest sister in the Bishop family, and she is a veterinarian. And what I really love most about the Stay series are the animals! Hei Hei and Charlie are my faves, and of course, Captain Hoof! Probst does a good job integrating animals in her books! My other faves are Robert and Pinky in her Searching For series.
I’m also a sucker for a hero with an accent and Aidan has an Irish accent (I mean, I can just imagine his accent right now, which is why I am planning to listen to the audiobook version). Not only that, I am a fan of the broody ones!
The romantic between Aidan and Harper was a bit of a slow start and had the will they/won’t they thing going on. Of course, both of them only wanted to remain friends while they were working together. The sparks were flying between them, though and they couldn’t help it.
While there were emotional scenes in All Roads Lead to You, I also ended up giggling in certain scenes. Most often when the animals were present! Probst really knows how to add pet in books (YES, I said this again – see above).
I haven’t checked Probst’s website yet, but I am hoping that Chloe will get her HEA! I’m even okay that it will be a novella!
While I wanted to love this book as much as the other two books in the series, there was something missing that I can’t seem to put a finger on. I think the an audio “reread” is in order for this book because it’s a dual narration and I really need the accents to get me really into a story.
