Emilie Richards is great! Julia Warwick grew up in a world where Thoroughbreds and fox hunting are passions, not pastimes. The story if full of mystery, crime, unexpected pregnancy, unhappy marriage and finally the truth and happiness.

Although blindness darkens Julia's world, it opens her eyes to hidden truths, about her husband, her family, her friends, and the man she loved. As the story starts to emerge a forgotten memory begins to return, a mystery comes to light... and two lovers torn apart by forces they couldn't control face each other once and for all. Sweet romance mystery. Kept my interest all the way through.

Artist Julia Warwick falls from a horse, resulting in the loss of her eyesight. Doctors find nothing physically wrong with Julia. They conclude that she suffers from hysterical blindness though no one knows what psychologically caused this. Julia's mother brings her twenty-nine year old daughter home to Ridge's Race, Virginia to heal.

At about the same time, Julia's former lover, wrongly convicted Christian Carve, is released from prison. Reluctantly, he goes home where employment awaits him. Christian wonders who really killed Fidelity, the homicide he was incarcerated for, and why did Julia desert him. He soon wonders who sired her nine-year-old daughter. As Christian and Julia "see" each other for the first time since his trial, the sparks erupt, but too many crisis have befallen them for any hope of a future together.

After a fall from her horse, Julia Warwick is diagnosed with hysterical blindness. An embarrassment to her husband, he has her committed to an institution where he tells her she will get well. It only takes days for Julia to realize that the last thing that will happen in the clinic is her getting better. When her mother, Maisy, offers a home to her and her eight year old daughter, Julia accepts. Back at her childhood home, Julia tries to heal so she can hopefully get her sight back. When Christian Carver suddenly returns to her life she knows nothing will ever be the same. For he is the one man she loved with all her heart and the one man she let down.
Christian Carver spent nine years in prison for a murder he didn't commit. When he was released after someone else confessed to the crime, Christian thought he would be able to go on with his life. He didn't expect to feel doubt about the confession, but he knew that until he knew exactly who murdered Fidelity, he would not have closure in his life. Then there is Julia whom he has never forgotten and soon learns to forgive. He just doesn't know if they have a chance for a life together even though he wants nothing more than to be with her and Callie for the rest of their lives.

I am always hesitant to spend my money (or credits, in the case of PaperbackSwap) on authors I've never heard of, but I got this one from a friend and decided to give it a chance. I was pleasantly surprised, it was pretty good! There is romance, mystery and murder, as well as a second storyline in this book.

I found FOX RIVER very predictable and 80s-ish in the simplistic narrative style and the characterizations. I saw everything coming miles away and knew every beat the storyline would hit.

I'd recommend WHISKEY ISLAND by Emilie Richards way before this one.
