The Start of Something Good by Jennifer Probst
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
THE START OF SOMETHING GOOD was a pleasant read, not angsty and just a lovely undulating journey. This is a perfect summer, low-concentration read, one for the beach or vacation.
Mia is a rising PR agent, representing the to-be Mayor or NYC. She’s somewhat vain, obsessed with being rake-thin and has no work-life balance. The to-be Mayor sends her to a farm way out of state to keep an eye on his wayward daughter doing community service. Ethan is ex-military, a bit predictably psychologically and physically damaged, however, he cuts a desirable character. These two truly were opposites with a hate thing going on. The chemistry between these two was very well written.
With the setting being a farm, I have to say some of the highlights came from some animals, primarily Hei Hei, the chicken and Phoenix, the abused racehorse. Chloe, the Mayor’s daughter also made for a slowly growing warm fuzzy.
The story was essentially predictable but I didn’t mind from a book like this, a story that’s going where I think in general. It was a sweet, encapsulated read. The bonus is, you can see a good set up for the next couple.
I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.
