Publisher's Summary

Brynn honors her passion for horses by studying at the toughest veterinary program in the country. Months from graduating, tragedy strikes - tragedy for which she can't help but feel responsible. Brynn feels suffocated by the weight of her father's legacy and his dusty hopes for horse show jumping success. When Brynn's frenetic efforts to dig the family business out of debt fail, she's down to one desperate hope.

Enter Jason Lander, who understands what it's like to walk away from the ring. The onetime champion agrees to train Brynn, and her horse Jett, for an all-or-nothing run at the prestigious Million Dollar Gold Cup. But going all the way means doing it his way, which has Brynn questioning her decisions, her loyalties, and her growing feelings for Jason - complicating her relationship with her lover.

Set in Northern California against a stunning backdrop of coastal hills and valleys, Learning to Fall is about discovering how to let go - and how to hang on with your heart.

Loved it

I ride horses and thought most of this was pretty accurate! The character development was great and the the story was interesting. I hope the author writes more horse books! (So hard to find decent adult horse books!)

This author obviously loves horses! A great read.

I could smell and feel the horses! I loved the reference to Timbits! Once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. Loved it!

I'd give it 10 stars if I could!

The first few chapters were frustrating for me... Luke not wanting/supporting his daughter to finish vet school to instead train and ride jumpers seemed ridiculous to me and Brynn's apparent lack of horse sense and medical knowledge inspite of going into her last year of vet med irritated me (new author). But mostly my irritation stemmed from knowing Something was going to happen but having a long build up. After the story finally really started I was instantly sucked in! Many tears were shed and anguish felt but so worth the ride.
