A small-town romance about letting go of the past and learning to live in the moment.
Blue Baldwin takes no horse crap from anybody. Well, actually, that’s not entirely true. She does take horse crap. Piles of it. The real kind that is––not the metaphorical one. It kind of goes with the job description when you run a large animal rescue. What she does not take, however, is crap from an entitled movie star who needs to reform his rotten image.
Unfortunately, the farm she manages is in trouble and if she doesn’t raise the cash to save it she’ll be homeless along with the precious animals who depend on her. So she’ll grin and bear the King of Hollywood Screw Ups, and the assistant, and the overprotective brother he brings along. I mean, she takes care of large animals for a living. Isn’t that basically the same thing?

Micky’s 3 star review
Animals were the stars
If you’re the kind of reader like me that is enchanted by animals in the background of a book, then Out of the Blue delivers with an endearing set of rescued animals. The main character, Blue is a bit of a rescue case herself but she’s dedicated her life to this sanctuary, off the beaten track. Side entrance, a community service Hollywood star and his entourage. Now this plot wasn’t as obvious as it seemed at first glance.
I really liked Blue but I feel like I didn’t really get to know her as well as I’d hoped. Shane and Blue were a good potential pairing but they didn’t connect outside of the chemistry for me; I wanted a bit more.
Out of the Blue was a perfectly pleasant read and a bit of escapism but it didn’t grip me or give me the feels. It’s a story that starts with some meat and depth to the story but I felt that the depth I saw initally, petered away. I knew these characters on the surface but I didn’t really know them, nor did I connect with them.
All this said, this is the kind of book that I crave for low concentration and it was easy to read and turn the pages.
Thank you to netgalley for the early review copy.
