What would you get if you introduced a professional rodeo girl from a Georgia hay farm to an upper-crust composer from Manhattan? Mischief, music, and fireworks! In Fields of Alicia, Madi Coverton, a young widowed mother and professional barrel racer, never expected to meet concert pianist Michael Curry during her summer off from the rodeo circuit. What starts off as mutual interest and intrigue soon turn into wild adventures, building into an undeniable love that stirs the broken heart of the young widow. Will Michael follow his heart and leave the memories of his ex-fiancée behind? Can Madi learn to love again?
I really liked the balance that was present between these two characters. I liked that we had a bit of a past and present story for each of them as well. Madi was a strong female lead with weak moments, if that makes sense.
Michael, wow, he is endeering and broken! That really came through the pages for me.
We are given a novel that does not unravel predictably and will keep the reader guessing and enjoying the ride the whole way through. The story itself was engaging and the romance added to that.
