    Have you ever come across a book that you started reading and just couldn’t manage to put down? … Wanted to zip through the book like a speed-reader, but didn’t want the story to end? That’s exactly what happened for me with Cart Before the Horse by Bernadette Marie. I’ve definitely found a new (to me) author whose books will be on auto-buy status. Her writing style is beautiful; a true pleasure to read. Her characters are well-developed, very relatable, funny and compassionate. I could go on and on, but am more anxious for you to pick up this story and dive in like I did.

    Prodigal Holly is a no-nonsense, talented, professional woman working as a textile designer who ends up pregnant after a one night stand with Gabriel Maguire. Two months go by without seeing him until she seeks him out to plop this bit of news on his lap. Gabe’s character was oftentimes heart melting. His past trauma could cause him to react either way (accepting/denying) in response to Holly’s news of being pregnant. While his reaction may seem to good to be true, I was looking for a sweet romance and got exactly what I wanted out of this story. I enjoyed seeing them develop throughout the story, overcoming their individual fears and hang-ups.

    Bernadette Marie definitely accomplished writing a feel-good romance with an HEA, which I thoroughly enjoyed and hope you will too. I found her writing style to be very clear with an easy to follow rhythm and engaging dialogue.
