[Book Review] Racing Savannah by Miranda Kenneally

Racing SavannahRacing Savannah
Miranda Kenneally
They’re from two different worlds.

He lives in the estate house, and she spends most of her time in the stables helping her father train horses. In fact, Savannah has always been much more comfortable around horses than boys. Especially boys like Jack Goodwin—cocky, popular and completely out of her league. She knows the rules: no mixing between the staff and the Goodwin family. But Jack has no such boundaries.

With her dream of becoming a horse jockey, Savannah isn’t exactly one to follow the rules either. She’s not going to let someone tell her a girl isn’t tough enough to race. Sure, it’s dangerous. Then again, so is dating Jack…

Racing Savannah is a story about understanding that no matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, how much money you have – you have the right to go after whatever you want. You have the right to make your dreams come true…

Reading about Savannah and Jack and seeing how their friendship became something more was really entertaining. I don’t really like the thought of being country and have all that interest in horses but this really made me see the exciting world that lies beneath the races. Savannah is so sure about working full-time and making some money, she doesn’t know what to do when Jack tells her about college. And when opportunity of being a horse jockey comes along, she knows that her life would be changed forever. 
There were times when Savannah acted pretty immature but I loved her relationship with her dad and how comfortable she was with him. Seeing her be so strong without having her mother was eye opening and made me really like the character. 

If you are looking for fast paced and engaging story, Racing Savannah is definitely for you. Even though this is the fourth book in Hundred Oaks, it can be read as a stand alone and doesn’t have any cliffhangers. Kenneally’s writing style has definitely made me want to read more of her books.
