    If you like Nora Roberts and Danielle Steele I believe you will really enjoy Hearth Stone. First of all, the cover of this book caught my eye. It is beautiful. I really enjoyed the story and alot of the "supporting cast". This is a story of rich girl get's cut off and moves to the hills to become independent. It just felt like it had all been done before. By the second chapter I knew what was going to happen. There are a few storyline surprises but really, it follows a very familiar format. Trut [...]

    Met the author at the local library. Loved the book-just makes me want to keep reading the series.Sydney escapes her domineering father and gets cut off from the family money. But she shows she has the tenacity to survive and thrive by following her dream. Quote: But there is only so long you can lean on your excuses before you must carry your own weight and learn to stand tall.

    Finished reading Hearth Stone by Lois Greiman.I found this book to be a quick, happy book to read. Lots of character development, and a nice ending.This book was a win from the First Reads Program.

    This has to be one of the worst books I’ve ever tried to read. Verbose doesn’t even begin to describe the writing style! The first few chapters introduce a cast of characters with no background information and no idea of how they fit into the story making for some confusing reading.As a rider and former horse owner, I love any story that features horses but when I read that Sydney jumped on her horse and cantered out of the barn, I just about lost it. What a stupid and dangerous move! I also [...]

    Some new characters and a new setting for the Lazy Windmill series. I enjoyed the spirit of finding oneself and discovering strength you didn't know you had that ran thru this book. The surprises were good too.

    Enjoyable read. I really liked how it ended but there were a few things that didn't quite make sense or needed a bit more work, hence the three stars.

    4.5 stars Wow, what a powerful story! I loved getting to imagine the beautiful countryside through Sydney's eyes. The scenery and cast of lovable characters immediately drew me in to this emotional and captivating story. But what really had me head over heels for this book was Sydney and Hunter's chemistry. Hunt as he's called by his friends is such a hoot! He had me giggling uncontrollably quite a few times throughout the book. He doesn't let Sydney get away with being snobby, distant, or cold [...]

    This was an endearing book to read. I have already read some of Lois' s books and liked them a lot. This was a bit different but it was still a good read. I wasn't sure where this would go when I started reading. Lois has introduced some powerful people into this story. Sydney finally used her backbone to refuse to marry her fiancee who she saw cheating on her. She goes to South Dakota to a resort to recover and decides to buy a ranch sight unseen. She is surprised when she has It and sees what [...]

    While life does not allow for rewinds, it does allow rebuilds, which is exactly Sydney’s goal in Hearth Stone, the first book in Lois Greiman's Home in the Hills series. Injury has caused the loss of one dream so instead of giving up; Sydney sets her sites on another. One set back after another she almost gives up until she finds a severely injured mustang. By saving him, she saves her herself. This is so true of life, in that our focus needs to be on something other than ourselves. Sydney may [...]

    I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This is the first in the new Home in the Hills series. Even though this is a spin-off of the Hope Springs series I don't think you need to read them to enjoy this. There was a lot of witty banter between the characters, and although Sydney was unintentionally offensive to Hunter, he took it in stride and found the humor in the situation. Despite their differences a romance bloomed between them. I definitely didn't love the snootin [...]

    I received this book through Giveaways. What follows is my honest review of this book.I love the cover art used on Hearth Stone. Gets you into the mood for this entertaining and enjoyable story of relationships and redemption. Ms. Greiman's writing is quite good. I thoroughly enjoyed the banter between Sydney and Hunt throughout the book. There was plenty of humor, a little drama, and a couple of good twists near the end. This is the first in a series, I believe, and I will definitely be on the [...]

    A corny Lifetime made for TV novel, but it spoke to me, nonethless. A woman runs away from her unfaithful fiancée and controlling father to South Dakota, with its red rock, plains, and rolling hills. She goes into a café, and meets ranchpeople, and decides to buy a ranch. She meets a local town person, who helps her rebuild her ranch. Of course she develops feelings for him. She encounters a wild Mustang who is injured, and decides to nurse it back to health. Clearly there is a healing/rebuild [...]

    I enjoyed this book, which I received through the Giveaway. Yes, it's a bit predictable, but the characters were interesting and there were a few plot twists that snuck up on me. Lois Greiman paints a beautiful picture of South Dakota. The main character, Sydney Wellesley, is difficult to get to know in the book, but it reflects what her character is like in her fictional world. If you're looking for a story that you can just sit back and enjoy then I would recommend Hearth Stone. Is it "great [...]

    Sydney refuses to go along with her father and fiance to merge the two wealthy families. Injured and disinherited she flees to Lazy Windmill ranch with hopes to open a riding school for Olympic hopefuls. She rescues a wild mustang and the two save each other. Her plans change but she finds that the small town folks have taken her under their wings and help her proceed with a new life. A wonderful story of life and family. First in a new series that I'm looking forward to reading.

    This is a book I can lend to my friend, my grandma. I love the books when they are ageless. Pick this one up for a summer read, the kids can interrupt you and you can come back to it. I am a lucky winner from .

    At first it was difficult to keep track of who was who for characters because so many were introduced in a short period of time but as the book went along, I enjoyed it more. Overall, it is a nice read!

    Way too many adjectives, and pretty routine plot, but that said, I enjoyed the read once I made peace with the devices. I've read and enjoyed other Greiman books, but don't recall them being quite so adjective heavy.

    A little sparing on initial character development for me, but a nice heart-warming story at its core. If you are looking for an enjoyable quick read, this book fits the bill.

    I loved this book. It was a great story and can not wait to read the next book.

    got better as you read on.

    Chris Conley
    What a great book this was. I cannot wait to go back to The Black Hills and find out what happens to the rest of Sydney's family and friends.

    Hearth Stone is the first book in the "Home in the Hills" series. I thought it was an enjoyable story, though somewhat predictable.

    Quick read. A horse romancerst in a series.

    short easy feel good beach read
