My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A Single Step is a romantic suspense and book 1 of The Grayson trilogy. Emma Grayson is getting her life slowly back together after the tragic death of her child. She applies for a new job as a stable manager at Melton Manor for Lord Cavendish in a positive move forward with her life.
Everyone is very helpful and the job and the facilities are very generous, all except the Estate Manager Trent who is cold and domineering. Emma wasn’t his first choice of person for the job and he makes her feel like an incapable female. His manor brings out the feisty side in Emma even more.
After a fall from a horse Emma is forced to accept help from Trent and when it’s time for him to leave she realises she doesn’t want him to go, is the brick wall around her heart coming down brick by brick? Then just when you think you know what’s going to happen, Wham! the story has a sinister turn.
I really wasn’t sure about this story, it has a very slow start and it took a long time for me to warm to the plot and the characters, but then suddenly the action began when Emma fell from her horse and the book got my attention to the very end. There’s no cliff hanger so I don’t know what to expect in the next book in the series, but I’m intrigued enough to add it to my TBR list.
