Kate Foley was content.
She didn’t need anyone else in her life to complicate matters.
It was all she could do to hang on to High Meadows since her father
had died and left her and her mother in debt and with very little
life insurance. She had to keep the horse farm; it was her life.
When her sister Colleen was killed in an automobile accident, she
didn’t hesitate in adopting the infant son that her sister
left behind. Her world opened up just enough to include Ben in it.
She had no time or desire to let others in.
Then Daniel Montero
showed up at her front door claiming to be Ben’s father. Daniel
was a dark handsome man – and not just any handsome man either.
He was the starting pitcher for the Yankee’s baseball team
– and very famous, and very rich. Daniel was used to women
falling all over him. But Kate was different. Fame and fortune didn’t
impress Kate. She was concerned that he would not be a good father
figure to Ben – and Ben was the first and foremost concern
in her life, not some handsome stranger even if she did feel the
strange urges of desire that she had never before felt in all her
twenty-seven years of life.
Wolf takes us for quite a ride in High Meadows. She not
only gives us the blossoming romance story of Kate and Daniel, but
throws in a romance between Molly, Kate’s mother, and Alberto,
Daniels’s butler, as well. And just when you thought you had
it all figured out, Wolf gives us another twist to the plot. All
in all, High Meadows is an enjoyable read.
