Hott Review of If Wishes Were Horses:

In If Wishes Were Horses Martha dreams of adventure but her life of servitude is a bit mundane until things he get a bit special.

I really loved the paranormal elements of If Wishes Were Horses. This was a fun and romantic novella to read. A great way to spend the afternoon!!

The only thing that was disappointing was that I thought this was supposed to be spooky or suspenseful, and it wasn’t at all. Plus, I couldn’t figure out which fairy tale this was retelling. Maybe I was just looking too hard. (I did look it up & it’s Goldilocks and the Three Bears.)

However, I’d absolutely read this again – it was a great story!

Author Bio:

Mary BlayneyI have been writing both contemporary and regency romances since 1986, though my writing began in earnest at age fourteen when I drafted a script for my favorite TV show. While my attempt never made it to the small screen, I eventually pursued writing as a career, first with contemporary romances for Silhouette and later with historicals set in the Regency period.
Raised on the East Coast, my life changed dramatically when I married Paul Blayney. Within six months we moved to a Coast Guard Base in Kodiak, Alaska. It was the first time I had ever been off the east coast. Over the years we lived all over the US including San Francisco; Muskegon, Michigan; San Juan, Puerto Rico and Seattle. Paul’s career gave me the opportunity to experience, in a personal way, the Coast Guard’s search and rescue mission where life and death are no more than a breath apart. These events shape my belief that life is best lived with joy, love and a generous heart. Those convictions are what I most want to share with my readers. Family will always play a strong part in my books since, for me, family relationships are as fundamental as the love between a man and a woman.

Always interested in books about relationships, I chose romance when I began writing because it was one of the few literary forms that welcomed a happy ending. Times have changed and many romance writers have moved on to other genres taking the happy ending with them. As for my plans, I still have dozens of stories to tell in the historical romance genre and anticipate writing Regency-set stories for years to come.
