Even though this is not my genre, I was impressed by the plot development, and the strong lead character. The story stands alone as a well structured well paced adventure/mystery which definitely keeps you reading. Adding in the romance gives the story another dimension. Suzie’s use of language is polished and enhances the story well.. It is a good read and I even learnt a lot about horses! Will certainly read the next one.
I did enjoy the plot very much, however, the horse swapping was a bit far-fetched these days with the rigorous rules and identification processes, even moreso when one horse had a white star and the other was plain.
