This was a very enjoyable read. Heroine's father was a cutter and put horses first. Loved his daughter but left his wife and daughter for the circuit. Hero married his love who was a barrel racer. It killed her. He believes you only get one true love. She believes all cutters will abandon family for the horses. It is a disease they all seem to have.
The only reason that I dropped the rating from 4 to 3 is that this angst is carried on a bit too long in my opinion.
The character growth was however well planned out especially for the heroine. Echos of Sleepless in Seattle abound and in fact referred to in the story. Very touching scene at the conclusion.
