Hannah Hooton con Keeping the Peace (Aspen Valley Book 1) (English Edition)
Inheriting a racehorse destined to run in the Grand National is the kick up the butt Pippa Taylor needs to get her life out of a rut. But while she leaves the city behind for the countryside and takes a secretarial job for a fiery-tempered racing trainer, she doesn't foresee falling in love as a particular hazard of country-living. Oh, how wrong a girl can be...

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. And that’s before her tempestuous relationship with her new boss can be considered.
Moody, fiery-tempered and particularly easy on the eye, Jack’s moral code is threatened by Pippa’s arrival. After a Christmas they would both rather forget, danger and deception threaten Pippa’s life in the country and as her time at Aspen Valley Stables draws to its conclusion she discovers Peace Offering is not the only thing she must fight to keep.
