Blog Tour: Stable Mates by Zara Stoneley


Scandalous Stable Mates by best-selling author Zara Stoneley is cantering its way through the bloggersphere. Get ready for lust, love and outrageous goings-on as we bring you romping reviews, exciting excerpts, galloping guest posts and a tip-top giveaway!


'Secrets and scandals, love and lust – when the ‘Cheshire Set’ are up against the ‘Footballer’s Wives’ the only common ground is carnal… Flirting and fun seem the perfect antidote for Lottie's battered heart, and where better to find them than back in tranquil Tippermere, home of sexy eventer Rory Steel, the smiling Irish eyes of hunky farrier Mick O'Neal, and mysterious newcomer, model Tom Strachan? But when landowner Marcus James drops dead unexpectedly, and the threat of his waggish wife Amanda selling the heart of the village out from under them looms large, things look like they're about to heat up in and out of the saddle. With tensions running high, and the champagne flowing as freely as the adrenalin, is it any wonder that love catches more than one of them unawares?'  

Shona's review 4 of 5 stars

This is my first Stoneley novel and I've heard nothing but great things about it, so when I was offered the chance to review it for the tour I jumped at the chance (despite my very busy reading schedule). I will be honest this was a bit of a slow burner for me, the first few chapters interested me, but they didn't have me itching to read more.... but by the time I'd hit chapter 4 I was chomping at the bit if I couldn't get some reading time in.

There is a bit of a family tree/character map with a brief bio at the beginning to introduce you to the cast list, and I did feel a little intimidated by the cast list and wondered if I would remember them all. I didn't need to be worried because every character, no matter how big or small their role in this book, is fully fleshed out and stands out in your mind.

This was a fun book to read, there was a touch of mystery... what is Elizabeth up to? Some sexual tension .. OMG where can I get my very own Mick? And so many funny bits I had my husband asking if I was reading a comedy. If this is the standard of writing I can expect from a Stoneley novel then count me a fan and point me in the right direction of the rest of her work.
