    When I received this review request I first noticed Sarah Title is a debut author, which I am always eager to try and then the horses on the cover drew me in. Giddy up.This one very pleasantly surprised me. When it first starts we meet Luke, who is the hero’s brother. Luke left his family’s Kentucky horse farm to move to DC and explore other adventures. He met Mallory at a business function and they became fast friends. Luke is somewhat of a ...

    3 stars. Enjoyable story if you don’t mind some unfilled plot holes.I liked the plot - Mal was not able to stand up against her controlling and verbally abusive husband until recently. Luke is a friend. With his help she left her husband to stay with Luke’s family on a horse ranch for a while. Luke tells his family they are engaged. Then Luke leaves for a few weeks. While he is gone, Mal and Keith fall for each other.I enjoyed the story but ...

    Mallory Thompson appears to have it all -- a loving husband and a beautiful home . . . but appearances can be deceiving. Mallory has been on the receiving end of emotional, psychological and verbal abuse from her husband, Dr. Michael Thompson. He has told her what to wear, sabotaged any possibility of her having a job, and made her daily life a living hell. Even after their "separation" he continued to demean her by bringing women into their home...

    2.5 STARS (I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review). After years of abuse, Mallory Thompson turns to new friend and bartender, Lucas Carson. The one place Mallory's husband cannot find her and a place that may heal her heart and soul is Wild Rose Farm & Stable. Lucas himself has runaway from the sleepy town but his brother and sister, along with their father and longtime housekeeper/cook, have continued to make it their ...

    What a nice change, a romantic heroine who isn't a total biyatch.

    It is wonderful to have good friends to turn to when you need them, too bad they are sometimes a little unpredictable. Mallory Thompson is a good friend of Luke Carson and when she needs help, he was the one person she can turn to. She is married to Michael, a doctor who is not only controlling but also emotionally and recently physically abusive and she is ready to get out.Luke lives in DC and works as a bartender and although he is a good frien...

    I wanted to like Kentucky Home so much more than I actually did. I found it difficult to connect with Mallory, in fact, at the beginning of the story, I wasn't sure who she was or what part she was going to play in the story.I really thought Luke was going to be more of character here, since the prologue is told from his point of view, so when it changes to Mal's and Keith's, I have to say I was a little confused.The Carson family is really dysfu...

    Loved this book. The story of a woman, Mal, who is married to a doctor who belittles her and runs around on her is a classic. She turns to Luke Carson, a friend she has met while he bartends at most of the charitable functions. Luke takes her home to Hollow Bend, KY to stay with his family and tells everyone she is his fiancee. However, she falls in love with his older brother, Keith. The story of how they get together is fraught with conflict an...
  • Virginia Markhart
    It was fine. Nothing to write home about but a gentle book.Mallory left an abusive husband and went to Kentucky with Luke, her pre tent fiancé. Luke left Mallory in Kentucky with his family while he returned to New York. Malory falls for Luke's brother Keith who is recovering from the loss of his wife who died in a car accident.There are some funny parts of the book. It is slightly chopping, does not flow well. All in all, a comfortable book.
  • Claudia
    3.5 starsThis was a nice small town contemporary romance. It felt a bit chlichéd at times with the awesome cooking housekeeper who cared for everyone and the grumpy old dad. The hero's two siblings have their issues, too, and you can already see the sequels lining up but it was still an emotional read with an adorable hero. (A review copy was provided by the publisher through NetGalley.)
  • Kathy
    4.5 stars. An impressive debut novel by newcomer Sarah Title, Kentucky Home is an absolutely delightful romance that is full of charming characters. This well-written novel is a wonderful story about starting over and finding love when it is least expected. Please click HERE to read my review in its entirety.
  • Bette Hansen
    Really wonderful story about Mallory who was leaving an abusive marriage and Keith a young widower who hasn't been able to move on. These very different people both learn how to love again. Recommended.
  • L. Denise McGinley
    Very realReading this I could almost picture the place and the people. I wasn't happy that it just ended in the wedding so I hope there is a companion book to continue Mal and Keith's life.
  • Willadale Meeks-Smid
    This is the first book I have read by this author and while the story line was interesting, I found that the author put an excessive number of sex scenes in it. I will read the next book in this series, but if it continues in the same vein I will not read any more of her books.
  • Susannah Carleton
    Well drawn setting of a small town in Kentucky' bluegrass region and a small family-run horse farm outside the town. The main and secondary characters were all a little over-the-top in one respect (each in a different way) for my taste, but the story moved along and kept me reading until the end.
  • Donna
    Good book.
  • Susan
    The plot had a few holes in it and I couldn't like Luke. It was a light easy read that feels good.

    Fluff, but fun and set in ky
