Pressestimmen

""The author's knack for weaving forbidden romance, breezy dialogue, and details of this lesser-known sports venue places it in the winner's circle for reluctant readers and chick-lit fans." " - Booklist

Kurzbeschreibung

They're from two different worlds.


He lives in the estate house, and she spends most of her time in the stables helping her father train horses. In fact, Savannah has always been much more comfortable around horses than boys. Especially boys like Jack Goodwin—cocky, popular and completely out of her league. She knows the rules: no mixing between the staff and the Goodwin family. But Jack has no such boundaries.


With her dream of becoming a jockey, Savannah isn't exactly one to follow the rules either. She's not going to let someone tell her a girl isn't tough enough to race. Sure, it's dangerous. Then again, so is dating Jack..


Praise for Miranda Kenneally:


"Kenneally's books have quickly become must-reads."—VOYA


"Fresh, fearless, and totally romantic."—Sarah Ockler, bestselling author of Twenty Boy Summer and Bittersweet on Stealing Parker

4.0 von 5 Sternen Miranda Kenneally hat es mal wieder geschafft. 22. Januar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Inhalt:
Savannahs großer Traum ist es, als Jockey an Pferderennen teilzunehmen. Doch als Tochter eines einfachen Stallarbeiters scheint dieser Traum weit entfernt. Auf der Farm der reichen Goodwins erhält Savannah zum ersten Mal die Chance sich zu beweisen. Einzige Bedingung: Sie muss sich von dem unverschämt charmanten Sohn des Hausherren Jack fernhalten.

Meine Meinung:
Miranda Kenneally hat es mal wieder geschafft. Sie erzählt eine neue Geschicht vor dem Hintergrund der Hundred Oaks High School mit ganz viel Teenagernöten und natürlich einer ordentlichen Portion Liebesdrama!
Dieses mal ist die Protagonistin die 17-jährige Savannah, ein armes Mädchen, das auf der Farm der reichen Goodwins mit ihrer Familie zu arbeiten beginnt. Sie ist eine unglaublich sympathische und starke weibliche Protagonistin. Ich hatte sie sofort in mein Herz geschlossen und habe es sehr genossen, das Geschehen aus ihrer Perspektive zu verfolgen. Mit ihr haben wir wieder einmal ein junges Mädchen, das versucht sich in einem von Männern dominierten Gebiet zu beweisen. Der Jockey-Sport. Und auch in diesem Teil der Hundred-Oaks-Reihe schafft es die Autorin wieder, mit ihren starken und unabhängigen Protagonistinnen zu begeistern!

Aber natürlich darf auch die obligatorische Liebesgeschichte nicht fehlen. Schon in den Vorgängern habe ich es genossen, dass Miranda Kenneally ihre Romanzen nicht nach dem typischen 0815-Schema gestaltet. Denn die Hauptfigur verliebt sich nicht immer gleich unsterblich in den richtigen und es ist nicht gleich alles Friede-Freude-Eierkuchen. Und auch dieses Mal fällt sie ein wenig aus dem Muster. Denn der Held in "Racing Savannah" ist kein Held.

4.0 von 5 Sternen nette Story 12. Januar 2014
Von oevcor
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Es ist eine nette Geschichte, leicht zu lesen. Einige Zeit ist seit der Handlung der ersten Bücher der Serie vergangen, schön, wenn die alten Personen kurz auftauchen. Hätte etwas mehr sein können.
Ein bisschen wie Aschenputtel, arm und reich treffen aufeinander. Aber es schadet ja nie, darüber nachzudenken, was wirklich einen Menschen ausmacht.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sweet and honest contemp story 4. Dezember 2013
Von Ashley @ Book Labyrinth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Miranda Kenneally’s books have a style to them, a particular quality that make them so inherently readable. I love her conversational style of writing -- it makes her books so easy to delve into, and so enjoyable to read. This, her fourth book, focuses on the world of horse racing, something I know absolutely nothing about. I was happy to find myself interested in the subject (you almost can’t help it, it being something Savannah is so passionate about), but not overwhelmed by details or facts.

Our main pair for this book is Savannah and Jack, who are involved in a bit of a forbidden romance, since Savannah is part of the staff at Jack’s family’s farm. There’s a huge class difference between them, and a question of appropriateness since their parents do not approve. That undercurrent about class/money was definitely well written. It showed how having money doesn't mean you have class, but that it also doesn't indicate that you're a snob or a jerk. There was the same message about having less money: that just because that’s the case, it doesn’t mean you’re worth any less. The relationship in Racing Savannah was less swoony (for me) than in past books, but I still really liked these two together. It took some definite growth on both Savannah and Jack’s parts, but I feel like they ended up in a good place.

I really love how Miranda Kenneally brings back characters from past books for more than just two second cameos. There are major characters in this book that are siblings of past main characters, and without getting too spoilery, we get a wedding (!) for a past couple and an engagement for another. I can always picture the couples together in the future, finding weddings and engagements plausible, because the characters (including the ones from this book) are always such great friends. There’s so much more to their relationships than sexual chemistry.

In that regard, I think that Miranda Kenneally’s books are always very honest about sex and the emotions involved in it. They’re realistic about sexual activity, but it’s not presented in a tawdry or cheap way. It talks about how things can be good, but that you can also feel regret if things happen without a commitment. The book basically tells the characters (and the reader by default) that they are worthy, and that they deserve whatever it is they want from a relationship.

I’m a huge fan of Miranda Kenneally’s books: she is an auto-buy author for me. I definitely recommend Racing Savannah to fans of YA contemporary romance, but also for fans of sports books, or fans of just about any type of book that features strong relationships and a good message, without it being preachy in any way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Racing Savannah 17. Januar 2014
Von Jennifer Rummel - YABookNerd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I love the Hundred Oaks books. They have so many layers to them. While romance is the forefront of this book, it delves deep into family issues, social classes, friendships, and new beginnings. I love the secondary characters of Vanessa and Rory and I hope we get to see them again some day. I love Kenneally weaves favorite old characters into the stories. It's great hearing a little tidbit about them. Most of the time, I loved Jack. He had a few moments where I wanted to smack him, but Savannah took care of that. I loved how she set him straight. I loved her strength, her determination, and how she tried to help out her family. A fantastically perfect read, making this one of my favorite contemporary series.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great YA Romance! 16. Januar 2014
Von Ellen @ The Canon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Originally posted on The Canon! [...]

I grew up with a horse in my backyard (we had lots of land, so it was more like we lived on the other side of his pasture). My mom says when I was little, I used to go sit in his barn and talk to him. I remember bits and pieces of this, but mostly I remember mucking out stalls and learning to ride. Horses are near and dear to me because they remind me of my home & of my mom, who is one of the biggest animal lovers I know. Racing Savannah, a romance taking place on a horse farm in Tennessee, was the perfect story for me.

THE CHARACTERS
Savannah is the element of this novel that really won me over. Her spitfire personality mixed with a generous, warm heart and a love for animals created one of the most complex characters I've read so far this year. The entire novel is told through her point of view, so I got to see her thoughts, reasoning and memories, which helped create this amazing character. Her determination to take care of her family and those she loved came before her pride, a quality that is hard to resist admiring.

Jack is presented as the typical rich playboy in the beginning of the novel. Although we never see from his perspective, Kenneally makes it easy to follow his train of thought and motivation. Jack has the power to at once push those boundaries that hold Savannah and her family and be tied up in them all at once. It was fascinating to watch his character struggle with what he wanted versus what he was expected to do. His character was an unexpected pleasure.

THE PLOT
I was really impressed by this plot. There were so many layers, subplots, and side story lines mixing together and by the end of the novel, they slid easily into one cohesive resolution. That's not to say there was too much going on, plot-wise - it felt exactly like sliding into their lives.

The romance really surprised me. I don't know quite what I was expecting, but the tension between Jack and Savannah kept me on my toes, especially after the halfway mark of the novel. I loved how there were so many different factors against them, forcing the plot to twist and turn. I'm trying to not give it away. It was fabulous.

THE WRITING
Kenneally's smooth, invisible writing carried me right off from my couch on the West coast to a horse farm in Tennessee, with the sights and sounds of horses. Truly, it was so easy to slip into this story because of her gorgeous writing.

There was a lot more humor than I expected. Savannah's personality gave a lot of room for little side remarks and, more than once, this novel made me laugh aloud.

FINAL THOUGHTS
I'm disappointed in myself that I haven't picked up one of Kenneally's books before, but I'm going to rectify that as soon as possible. I loved Savannah and Jack's story. My only wish is that there had been a little narration from his point of view, but it isn't a deal breaker. Savannah was such an entertaining character to have as a narrator throughout the story.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Blue Ribbon for Kenneally! 4. Dezember 2013
Von kindlemom1 (My Guilty Obsession) - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Miranda Kenneally has a knack for creating outstanding, down to earth characters that you instantly relate to and fall in love with. It just might be what I love most about her writing. That easy flow of dialog, the lovableness of the characters and the real life situations that are so easy to imagine and picture yourself in.

Once again she captures the essence of first love, what it means to be different, fighting for what you want and believe in and standing up for yourself perfectly in Racing Savannah.

Savannah is a strong heroine. She is a fighter. She fights for her family, for her friends, and for what she wants from life. She has to be one of the strongest, bravest heroines I have come across in a really long time and I absolutely adored her.

Just like Kenneally can write a strong heroine, she can also write a swoon worthy, equally as strong hero and that is exactly what she delivers in Jack's character.

Although they are two very different people in very different worlds, they are both trying to prove themselves and make something out of what they have.

I couldn't have created a better bunch of characters if I tried. Not only do we get a whole slew of new ones to fall in love with, but, we get sneak peaks at the old ones we have already fallen in love with from past books (Yay for Will, Parker, Sam, Jordan, and Kate). And come on, this book is about horses, hello, almost every single girl at one point or another in their lifetime dreamt about owning and riding horses. Great characters, crazy horses, a sweet sigh worthy romance and great life lessons, what more could a girl ask for?

Kenneally has was again proving to me why I not only love her writing but adore this series. This is one series, one author I will continue to have on my auto buy list.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Fast-Paced, Uplifting, and Tenderly Romantic Story! 3. Dezember 2013
Von Lindy@ A Bookish Escape - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
My Thoughts:

I am a huge fan of Miranda Kenneally's Hundred Oaks Series. The first book in the series, Catching Jordan was outstanding, and instantly hooked me! As I continued reading this series, I quickly realized that Ms. Kenneally is a very unique and talented author. Her stories always deal with real life issues, and leave me in a very contemplative mood. She tends to address social dynamics, norms, and stereotypes pertaining to gender roles, sexuality, religion, and socioeconomic class. Her stories not only highly entertain, and engage her audience, but they also make us think critically about our own beliefs, values, and ethics, as well as societal norms.

In Racing Savannah, Ms. Keneally tackles two such social dynamics. First off, Savannah is talented and passionate when it comes to working with horses. She wants to be a Horse Jockey, which is mostly a male filled role. Ms. Keneally shows us the prejudices in the horse racing world, as Savannah deals with disrespect from the male jockeys, as well having to prove herself fully capable, and fight for her position. Before reading this story, I was ignorant to the world of horse racing. Ms. Kenneally completely captured my interest and attention when it came to reading about this fascinating sport. Not only am I more knowledgable on the topic, but Ms. Kenneally, seamlessly incorporated the lifestyle and details of this profession into the story in a highly entertaining manner.

Another social dynamic that Ms. Keneally addresses is the lifestyles of the "Haves" and the "Have Nots." Jack Goodwin comes from a wealthy and well-respected family, and is training to one day take over his father's running of Cedar Hill Farms, which trains horses for the Kentucky Derby, and Breeders' Cup. Savannah Barrow comes from poverty. She grew up getting free lunch in school, going to the salvation army for all of her clothing, and with the expectation that she would never be able to afford a college education. Her father uproots her along with his pregnant girlfriend, Cindy, from West Virginia to Tennessee, after he gets a better paying job working as the head horse groomer at Cedar Hill Farms.

Jack and Savannah are attracted to one another, and have a lot in common. However, Jack is quickly warned against "dating" any of the servants, and Savannah's father tells her to stay away from Jack as well, for fear that he will lose his job if she upsets Mr. and Mrs. Goodwin. Savannah is expected to be satisfied with a high school education, because her father could never afford for her to attend college. On top of that, Savannah doesn't want her unborn half sibling to suffer financially like she did as a child. So she asks Mr. Goodwin to use her paychecks to supplement Cindy's income. Savannah was very responsible, hard working, spirited, passionate, and giving. I absolutely adored her character. She had so much spunk, and would not accept the status quo! I loved how independent, strong, and courageous she was. She went after what she wanted, and didn't let anything stand in her way. I loved watching her stand up for herself, and demand the respect that she deserved. On the other hand, Jack greatly frustrated me. He was so concerned with pleasing his father, that many times he seemed to be lacking a backbone. Jack let his father control his life, and I desperately wanted him to break away, and take back control. I'm happy to say that he went through a great amount of character growth in this story.

Racing Savannah was a great read! The main characters were fully developed, realistic, and relatable. The plot was fast-paced, intriguing, and thoroughly engaging. The setting was beautiful. I loved the depth of this story, and how the themes, and issues addressed evoked such strong and passionate emotions inside of me. I felt anger, frustration, anticipation, and excitement! I give Racing Savannah 4 Fast-Paced, Uplifting, Intense, and Tenderly Romantic Stars!

My Favorite Quotes:

"But you're kind of like a great book...you know, you pick up a book at the bookstore because is has a beautiful cover...but it's what's inside that pulls you in." (eARC, Loc. 762)

~Jack

"When I looked out Jack's large bay window, I could see a million stars. My window is so small, I can only see a handful. If I had been born to a richer family, I'd have so many more stars to wish upon." (eARC, Loc. 2050)

~Savannah

"It doesn't matter where you dance. It's only who you're with." (eARC, Loc. 2564)

~Jack
