Book Review: The Chase

By Sara Steven

When stable girl, Farah Ash, is sacked from her job, her only concern is the beloved horses she cares for. Farah suspects foul play and is determined to expose the secrets and lies she’s uncovered - no matter what.

Self-made millionaire, Isaac Fernandez witnesses Farah’s shocking dismissal and senses immediately that she has uncovered something dangerous – perhaps even deadly. And his fears are confirmed when Farah is almost killed.

And as more threats come Farah’s way, it’s clear someone is out to silence her for good. Unless Farah and Isaac can uncover the truth and put a stop to the deadly chase – before it’s too late. (Synopsis courtesy of Amazon.)

When I received my first e-reader, a Nook, from my husband, I’d noticed he’d put an Evie Hunter book on it for me. That was a few years ago, and it was my first foray into Hunter’s unique genre. I appreciate the intrigue and undertones of danger I’ve experienced in every Hunter book I’ve read so far, with The Chase being the latest and the greatest to date! 

The plot was really unique. I’m not familiar with the inner workings of the horse industry, so finding out that Farah might be privy to some underhanded schemes going on within a lifestyle she’s been part of for many years of her life–well, it kept me going. I wanted to see what would happen next, and who she could ultimately trust. Isaac might be that kind of person for her, but she feels betrayed by people she’s always relied on and depended on. If that can happen, what would make her think she can let her guard down with Isaac?

The threats Farah experienced kept raising the stakes. And the closer they get to the truth, the more invested Isaac becomes. Farah is unlike any woman he’s ever experienced, while Farah tries desperately to tamp down the attraction she feels towards a man who lives a lifestyle that is so beyond the world she lives in. There’s nothing better than an opposites attract situation. 

I appreciated the different points of view that we get to see from various characters. I felt it gave more depth and insight into what’s going on and more importantly, the why of the matter. And The Chase was told in customary Hunter fashion–with mystery and drama, and loaded with that special opposing romance that would keep any reader on the hook!
