Crewel Work (The Tapestry Series Book 1)

Crewel Work (The Tapestry Series Book 1) by Natalie Alder

The key to a successful horse farm is the trainer. At Bridgeton Pass, J. P. Ryan is that key. William Becker is determined to protect his farm and keep Ryan on the job. 
That goal is threatened by two things – a sinister act by another employee and the fact that his only daughter has fallen head-over-heels in love with J. P. 
Becker can’t allow either of those things to threaten his legacy. 
Audra grew up around the handsome trainer and fell in love with him at a distance, enchanted by his kindness and honesty. When they began stealing private but innocent moments, she found that she didn’t want to live without him. Audra is heartbroken when she has to choose between honoring her father and pursuing love. 
J.P. wants Audra by his side, but he finds himself with a hard decision. 
He is forced to choose between his career and the love of his life. Between the problem caused by the troublemaking barn hand and the frustration caused by his desire for Audra, J.P.’s job has become a ‘crewel’ work. 
The story of the Becker family is woven as an intricate Tapestry. It is beautiful as a whole, but like any tapestry, you have to turn it over and look at the back side to see how the threads of love and family relationships are woven together into one intricate whole. 
Welcome to the Tapestry series.

2.0 out of 5 stars couldn't enjoyJune 19, 2015
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
I could not get into this book. We have a teenager crushing on an older man. Someone who works for her family. Her father is over protective. How cliche. For a story, who's cover tries to be sexy, this was just juvenile. The conversations didn't feel natural, when there even was conversation. There seemed to be too much internal dialogue. Every thing that happened was drug out, slow moving and unrealistic. It felt forced and faked. There's a difference between a story that runs smoothly and feels right and one that is completely forced. I found the plot to be somewhat interesting, but the way it was laid out and written was not done well. I just couldn't enjoy this.
