Showdown by Tilly Bagshawe
Sometimes, in the summer, a girl just needs to read something trashy - and this fit the bill perfectly! (I mean, c'mon, look at the cover!)
This lengthly beach read chronicles love, lust, deception and more in the world of horse racing, traveling from Newmarket (in England) to ranches of California. The writing is sharp and at times baudy, and the characters deliciously flawed.
Though I think some of this novel could have been edited (at 450+ pages, it's hard to HOLD on the beach!), overall I thought it was a fun, escapist read!
