It's engaging and funny
This is not the first book that I had read from the author Ms. Karen Bovee.   As usual, I enjoyed reading her books. This book is engaging and funny.
I laugh out loud so many times which is my favorite from reading this cozy mystery book. I can relate to some of the characters, especially Maggie. I am not a maid but some of her work in the hotel is mostly what I do at work. This girl is an asset to the hotel and I am glad that Mrs. Pryce takes good care of this employee. 
Mothers will always strive for their kids particularly a daughter in this story to have the best in life. It is unfortunate that sometimes mothers will not let their daughters decide what is best for them. Mrs. Pryce indeed plays a big role not only in owning the hotel but in the end being welcome to the community. Money is money but above all your reputation is most important than any amount of money.

I rated this book 5 *****'s 

Loved listening to the old tales 

When my Dad was still alive, I remember him gathering his grandkids and telling them a story. I loved to listen to his stories especially when his grandkids surrounded him with so much love and pure joy. 

Reading this book is kinda like that but this is more magical in so many ways. There are times that I have goosebumps while reading this beautiful story. I loved the power of forgiveness and only then the body can set free.  

There is only one place where we call home and for these siblings Lee and Lyla, Canada it is. I can imagine the beautiful settings, weather, and the old town and places. Nothing beats these old but happy memories that they reminisce.

It's a beautiful magical story for a horse lover
My husband used to own a horse when I first arrived here in America. He owned a Quarter horse. Scud is one beautiful horse. I know that when I get the chance to review this book, I will enjoy reading this book.
It's a beautiful magical story for a horse lover. The character's names are so unique especially Naya. This girl is not your ordinary gifted girl who not only loves her family, and her tribe but is willing to sacrifice her life to save the horses. 
I loved the settings of this beautiful story. The Power of Forgiveness and young love is fun to read. The second chance of love is so awesome too. This book is like watching the survivor tv show. You learned so much about how to survive in the wilderness. It makes you appreciate your life the most compared to the characters of this story.

An interesting read about love and cultures
This is my very first time reading the author's writing. The book cover is beyond gorgeous indeed. A very interesting read about love and cultures.
Being a Mom of two kids, I hope that when they settle down in the near future, I wish that their future mother-in-law will treat them like their own kids with love, respect, and freedom.
This book is a wide opener, especially for moms with different cultures. You learned how other cultures in every way. In this book sometimes I want to smack the main character Rose. She is funny but sometimes too sweet and nice and too forgiving and blind to what is in front of her. I am sure every relationship is different and Rose is such in a dilemma. She did find her help. It's a tragic loss but everyone is forgiven and move on. 
What a perfect book to read and unwind on Mother's Day.
