#REVIEW: Riding For Redemption by Bonnie Paulson

Desperate to find her place in the world, Sara Beth dreams of applying for the Miss Wrangler Montana competition that tours with the rodeo circuit. 
Riding horses has become her anchor until a near fatal accident takes more from her than she’d ever willingly sacrifice. 
Determined to prove his business training, Johnny seeks out the Rourke family to call in an old favor. When he embroils himself in Sara Beth’s life, he has to prove they’re nothing more than friends. 
Seeking independence, both Sara Beth and Johnny lean on each other more and more, until love threatens their friendship. Will they seek out each other or be confused by their dreams?
Can either of them leave their past and embrace their future?

My Rating: 4 1/2 stars
My Review: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second book in a series, and it can almost be read as a stand-alone.  The first book, Romancing Redemption, did not impress me at all. I'm really glad that I chose to read this book despite misgivings I may have had. All of the issues that I had with the first book were resolved, although I still don't really like Sara Beth's sister. Rosie seems way too old fashioned for a modern day era. Sara Beth, on the other hand, is written as a modern day young woman who has a stubborn independent streak. Unfortunately, this gets her into a heap of trouble, and causes more trouble than perhaps it was worth. However, it is this storyline that will help move along the next book. 
We meet the third in the five sisters, and she's not exactly feeling the warm and fuzzies when she finds out she's sister to Sara Beth and her older sister, Rosie. Since the next book will most likely be about her, it should be interesting to see how this progresses. 
Overall, this was a great book that helped breathe life back into a series that I was leery of.
