Here’s what readers are saying about Kicking On!

“I was so excited when some women at my barn told me that a sequel to Where the Bluegrass Grows had been released! I ordered Kicking On that night and couldn’t wait for it to come in the mail. This sequel did not disappoint!! Recommending this to the rest of my horse friends, and even the non-horsey ones as well!”

“This book is full of grace, wisdom, and good horsemanship. A must read!”

“In the past, I’ve bought books written by unfamiliar authors only to regret the money spent and time wasted. I bought this book when the forecast called for a winter storm, thus terminating all possibilities to spend time in the saddle. Let me assure you, I neither wasted money nor time!! Awesome book!! I can’t wait to read book #3. Please, please, please write quickly. An equine book written by someone who actually has working knowledge about equines, refreshing. A true pleasure to read!! Thank you!”


Where the Bluegrass Grows

Laurie’s first novel, Where the Bluegrass Grows, Molly’s story, was published in March of 2016 and is available on Amazon for $9.99 in paperback and $2.99 on Kindle.


“When fiction writer Molly Sorrenson realized her real life was starting to read like one of her novels, she knew it was time for a break.

Tired of her life in Maryland, Molly packs her bags and heads west to Lexington, Kentucky, where she’ll spend the summer with her best friend, Macy. Molly’s looking forward to riding horses, doing a little writing, and taking a break from her love life. But then she meets Beau Bridges, a handsome horse vet who steals her heart and turns her world upside down.

As the summer heats up, so does their romance. But when Beau’s past comes back to haunt him, Molly must decide if she should stay in Kentucky, or return home, alone.”

Here’s what readers are saying about Where the Bluegrass Grows!

“This was such a nice story! I really liked all the characters, they were very well-developed, and the locations that were featured (Maryland and Lexington, Kentucky). I am a horse person, but this novel would still be very enjoyable for non-horse people as well. It’s the perfect book to add to your summer reading list! I hope the author comes out with a sequel – can’t wait to see what Molly, Beau, and Macy will do next!”

“As a Virginia horsewoman, I loved the east coast/horse country setting of this novel and all the familiar references to hunt countries and Kentucky’s finest farms. It was a very quick read for me, and I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, and the characters were relatable. This book is a perfect feel-good summer romance for horsey and non-horsey readers. Can’t wait to see what the author does next!”

“I just finished reading this book last night, and I loved it! Nothing better than horses and romance!”
