Stable Mates, Zara Stoneley Review from jeannie zelos book reviews OK – I admit was the equine accoutrements on the cover that had me hooked in to this book. It sounded like a Jilly Cooper type read, one of those witty and wry observations at life among the Equestrian types, the Monied classes, as opposed to the ones like me who eke out their horsey costs from a tiny’s fun to play “what if” and in the past to me JCs books have given me that, and escape from reality. Its a while since I touched that genre though and maybe I’ve just moved on, because although this was a fun read, made me smile a few times it wasn’t a Great one. I need to like my characters but to be honest apart from the ditzy, kind and loving Lottie no-one else really appealed. I wasn’t convinced Rory was serious about her, felt Pip was too cynical to like, Tom too Mr Grey Man...sort of fell into things by default rather than intention. Mick sounded promising but we didn’t see much of him in action, and Dom, Lottie’s uncle,  – too aloof, he was in background much of the while too. The characters seemed a bit too stereotyped for me, and I just didn’t feel I really knew or understood them, what drove them, what they really wanted. There were so many machinations, secrets and twists that I just got tired of them, they weren’t enough to really get me needing to know what was going to happen, desperate to find out what was going on. I love twists and turns usually, and parts that make me wonder where the story is going but somehow these didn’t really spark my curiosity, and if it hadn’t been a review book I’d probably have just given up on it. I’ve reached the point now where with books that just don’t gel with me by 30-40% I don’t continue unless they're review ones. There’s too many ones out there I will love just waiting to be read! Time is precious. Stars: Three, its a decent read just not a great one. ARC supplied via Netgalley
