Summary : Book Three of the popular new series! Horse racing's dream team is back. With the Canadian Triple Crown on the line, the quirky little filly, Chique is back to her old tricks. A failed bid leaves her with a loss to avenge, and Nate talks Liv into the Woodbine Mile — a Breeders’ Cup “Win and You're In” race. Go big or go home, right? Except his big might backfire on him, when it earns him an invite to ride in California for the winter — but an injury derails any Breeders’ Cup California dreaming for Chique. Worse yet, he’s left feeling he has to prove his worth to Liv by going — then doesn’t exactly set the world on fire at Santa Anita. Liv knows horses, not people. She’s new to this whole relationship thing. Pushing Nate to go seemed like the right thing to do — even though she’s taking Chique to Florida to rest and recuperate. If she and Nate are meant to be, spending the winter with a continent between them shouldn’t be a problem, should it? Surviving the winter from hell is only the first hurdle their fledgling relationship has to endure. Their passion for the sport of kings and the love of the horses at its heart might end up being what drives them apart.

"Mixing together hope, heartbreak and romance, a dash of rivalry, and a great deal of excitement, Good Things Come delivers all the goods in terms of top-notch racing fiction. Set in the world of Canadian racing, the story is that of an intense young woman, a troubled young man, and the quirky but talented filly they both love. This is the first book written by an accomplished equine artist and former backside worker who knows her subject well and tells it with a master's hand." - Dr. Tony Ryan Book Award for excellence in Thoroughbred racing literature, finalist 2020.
