Cheri Reviews Blades of Bluegrass by D. Jackson Leigh

Blades of Bluegrass by D. Jackson Leigh

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


It’s been many years since I read a book by D. Jackson Leigh. With all the awful news in the world right now – and my regular reading and watching very dark material – I needed an angsty romance novel to lift me up a bit. There are two things I love with my romance: believable angst and laugh out loud humor. Blades of Bluegrass wasn’t funny but the angst was about perfect for me.

Overall, I enjoyed being on the relationship journey with the characters but did wish there had been more depth with regard to their connection and learning about each other. I would have liked to see them interacting more deeply and honestly about Teddy’s dead wife and her grief. I think there could have been a better balance between the horse breeding/racing business, the military/congressional hearing arc, and the growing relationship between Britt and Teddy.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed all aspects but did want more of the romance/relationship building than there was.

I’ll certainly not wait so long before picking up another of the author’s works!

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the ARC.
