Between The Pages - Jezebel's Wish

Jezebel’s Wish
By AJ Nuest 
Wild Rose Press
April 2011

Haunted by nightmares, tormented by guilt, Jezebel came to Redemption Ranch to escape the past-except now she's stuck in the middle of nowhere with no redemption in sight. When her mother pushes her into riding lessons with local veterinarian Matthias Saunders, Jezebel balks. Sure, the doctor is gorgeous, but he's completely obnoxious and knows how to push every one of her buttons. Only her deep connection with The Reverend, a gentle stallion who guards her darkest secrets, has her agreeing to spend any more time with Dr. Saunders. Caring for the stallion is the first bright spot in her life in months, and if being around the horse means she has to deal with Matthias Saunders, then so be it. Surely a city girl like her can handle one country vet-even one with disturbing blue eyes. Can't she?

Between The Pages of this story is a tender romance filled with heart-wrenching emotion and moving characters. The heroine, Jezzy, may seem strong-minded at first, but as you read through the story, you soon understand the reason behind Jezzy’s torment, and support her. The hero, Matty, is a true hero, always there for Jezzy. I was saddened by AJ’s choice over the final scene of the Reverend, but I also praise the her for pulling me into the story to show how emotionally invested I was in the storyline. The scenery was exquisitely shown and the details were well-done. Cozy up to Fall with Jezebel’s Wish, and be sure to have a tissue handy.

Review Rating: 5 Stars
