An enriching story of family ties, broken hearts, and second chances from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

When Ethan Bishop returns to the Hudson Valley, his body and spirit are a little worse for wear. As a former Special Forces paratrooper, he saw his fair share of conflict, and he came home with wounds, inside and out. At his sisters’ B & B and farm, he can keep all his pain at a safe distance. But quiet time isn’t easy when a fiery woman explodes into his life

It’s businessnot pleasurethat brings Manhattan PR agent Mia Thrush reluctantly to the farm. Tightly wound and quick tempered, Mia clashes immediately with the brooding Ethan. Everything about him is irritatingfrom his lean muscles and piercing blue eyes to his scent of sweat and musk.

But as the summer unfolds and temperatures rise, Ethan and Mia discover how much they have in common: their guarded histories, an uncontrollable desire, and a passion for the future that could heal two broken hearts. But will their pasts threaten their fragile chance at a brand-new future?

Ethan just came back home to his family's Bed & Breakfast slash horse farm. He's been hurt on his last job in the military and he needs a bit time to heal - body and mind.
His sisters have been running the business perfectly. But now he's here and they immediately give him the task of becoming the mentor of 19 year old Chloe who was sent to the farm by a judge for doing stupid stuff at college.
Enter Mia. She's gonna be Chloe's 'guardian' for the summer. Mia works as Chloe's dad's PR person. Jonathan is running for Mayor of New York City and they need to keep whatever Chloe did upstate hidden from the press, that's why Mia is sent to keep her in line.
Mia HATES everything country. She's a city girl from head to toe. And her first meeting with Ethan is not really a good one. But they have to see each other all the time the whole summer long... And there are definitely some sparks flying around - even though both can't stand what the other stands for. Rich city girl vs. country horse man. Let the fun times begin! ☺



Awww that was adorable!
I just love those kinds of books.
So I'll keep this short ....

A beautiful, homey family-run B&B with cookies and iced tea on the porch for guests and a horse farm and a small town with great people. And all those different kinds of problems of the past that both Mia and Ethan and even Chloe and Ethan's sisters bring into the story.
It was the perfect romance!
Sweet, adorable, moving, sparky, sexy, exciting, country-ish. I just adored it all. Especially the animals!! Hei Hei is the best!!!!! ☺ LOL!

This was a really great romance! I can't wait to see what Ethan's sisters will have to tell us. We already know who Ophelia's guy will be!

THE START OF SOMETHING GOOD was a mega-adorable romance! I just adored everything about it!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Ethan - this one is mine!

ARC received for an honest review

Start of Something Good was all sorts of adorableness.  Right from the start I was hooked, and didn't want to put it down until I had finished.

Ethan and Mia's story was just what this girl wanted this past weekend. The country, sex-crazed grandmas that had me laughing out loud, cookies - oh, the cookies had my searching my cupboards for goodies to eat!

I adored the progression of  Ethan and Mia's relationship from hating each other to somewhat more.  And I also adore their relationships with Mia's charge for the summer, Chloe.

However the scene stealer in this story is definitely a little bit cocky.  No, what, he is a big cocky.  This rooster had me in stitches!

This made me want to hit the farm - though not near horses, those things are the beasts of Satan!  I live in the country and loved the vibe this story gives the reader.

I can't wait to see where this story goes, and can't wait for the sister's stories.
