The Long Road to Loving Jackson is a novel in the women’s fiction, equine-related fiction, and interpersonal drama sub-genres, and was penned by author Alicia Hope. The novel forms the second book in The Long Road series. In this sweet and clean novel, we meet trick rider Abbey Miller who has recently had a spate of bad luck and been put out of action by injury and grief. As she tries to put her life back together, new challenges arrive to interrupt her peace, including a squatter who she just can’t seem to shake. What results is an emotive and enjoyable romantic adventure with plenty of horses and heart.
Author Alicia Hope has crafted a delightful and highly engrossing tale of inner strength and picking oneself back up after disaster hits. I really liked Alicia as a central character because she balances a lot of elements of a rebellious and strong woman doing it for herself with the still-present ties of family duty and the obligations that she feels to other people in her life. This realism gives us a close connection to the dramas she faces, and the author’s speech and thought presentation puts us right in there to emote along with her. The plot is filled with realistic twists and some really neat surprises that serve the wider story, and the atmosphere builds to one which is highly uplifting and fun. Overall, I would certainly recommend The Long Road to Loving Jackson for fans of accomplished women’s drama.
