Overview

The second in Hannah Hooton's chain of racing romances, Keeping the Peace is the first of the Aspen Valley series.

 

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.

 

PRAISE FOR KEEPING THE PEACE

“The book is well paced and the kooky characters absolutely believable. I laughed a great deal.” The Romance Reviews

“Keeping the Peace has everything from a great storyline to some hot romance! The female Dick Francis.” The Filly Forum

“Evocative imagery and crisp writing sets this story apart from the competition.” Natalie Keller Reinert, best-selling author

Meet the Author

Hannah Hooton burst onto the contemporary romance scene with the release of her debut novel, At Long Odds, in January 2012. This was followed by the multi-award winning, bestselling Aspen Valley series, so far consisting of the first three instalments, Keeping the Peace, Giving Chase, and Share and Share Alike.

The inspiration for these novels came while combining her wanderlust with her love of horse racing when travelling around Australia working from one racing stable to the next as a strapper (not to be confused with stripper).
She has now settled in East Anglia, UK, having recently completed a BA Honours degree in Writing and Film Studies.

Hannah's passion and mild obsession with horses has forced her to plan her own life around the racing calendar. Her family are well aware not to expect an appearance from her at functions during the likes of Royal Ascot and Cheltenham Festival weeks. Writing racing romances allows her to further research her passion and she is privileged to have made some firm friends in so doing.

Hannah is currently working on her fifth novel and the fourth in the Aspen Valley series.

    Loved the British theme but slow story

    I really enjoyed learning about the British horse jumping but the story was slow. I did not get in to either main charactors. The end was a bit anti-climatic.
