A Risk Worth Taking by Heather Hildenbrand
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
NOTE: I received a copy for review purposes.
This story of a girl damaged by the breakup of her family who meets a free spirit has a lot of the typical romance stories. Both are scared of commitment. There’s the typical obstacles and other elements you’d expect from a romance novel.
What makes each individual novel enjoyable is the way the author tells the story, and Hildenbrand has a fun, engaging style that drew me in right from the beginning. The setting was nice as well, as I haven’t seen too many books set on a farm during the growing and harvest seasons. I also liked Ford’s job on the farm–another unique element.
As for the characters, Summer struck me as overall realistic given the circumstances, and I liked the path her character ultimately took in the story, as well as Ford. The farm was populated with interesting and fun characters that felt like regular people, and I have heard enough about small town life from my husband to get a real kick out of some other characters outside the farm.
If you’re looking for a fast, fun, easy read, this is one to check out.
