BlueBuckle is a work of comedic and romantic fiction penned by author Karin P. Schaefer. Written for more mature audiences due to the presence of some scenes of a sexual nature, this is a work of interpersonal drama set in and around the world of horses and their owners. Our protagonist is India, a young woman mourning the loss of her grandmother, who travels to New South Wales to settle her estate. Whilst there, an old enemy and her prized son emerge to make trouble, and India seeks comfort from her grandmother’s friends but also finds it in the company of BlueBuckle, a dying stallion calling out for help.
Fans of interweaving family saga and soap opera style narratives are sure to be immediately engulfed by the complexities and intricacies of the world which author Karin P. Schaefer has created. India is a superb heroine to sit at the center of events: a strong woman with her own opinions and plenty to say on matters of the heart and the family. As we root for her, so our hearts grow and we see her bond with human and animal characters alike. There’s a sweetness to the narrative which feels genuine and gives confidence to the story as a whole. Fans searching for the comfort and smile-inducing nature of romantic comedy will be in safe hands here and love every minute from cover to cover. Overall, I would highly recommend BlueBuckle for fans of horse-world fiction and interpersonal romantic dramas alike.
