THE LAVENDER FIELD
by Jeanette Baker

Genre: Contemporary Romance, General Contemporary Romance

RT Rating

Horse breeder Gabriel Mendoza refuses to consider selling his prized Lipizzaners, until he meets attorney Whitney Benedict, the Austrian government's representative in the proposed transaction.

The rare white horses are his late father's legacy and, though the huge
sum they'll bring would improve the entire Mendoza family's quality of life --plus provide a much-needed infusion of cash into his business -- Gabe can't bring himself to do it without plenty of soul-searching. Any more than Whitney can pressure him to decide -- she comes from horse people and understands his reluctance. Her reticence
has nothing to do with her attraction
to Gabe and growing affection for his three children -- or so she tells herself!

Baker quite simply plunges the reader into the world of horse breeding and
the colorful lives of the Mendoza clan. Packed with vivid descriptions and characterizations, it's an intensely pleasurable read. (Jun., 384 pp., $6.99)
