Synopsis from Goodreads:
A few hours away, Maddie and Melanie are working hard in their parent’s metropolitan riding school, teaching others about horse riding and care of the horse. From the nervous first time rider, to the child who wants to run fast and jump high, the young women shape lessons to suit the individual.
This novel is extremely well written and has a nice, natural flow to it that allows you to follow along, falling in love with the characters and their charges as you learn a little bit about horses in the mix. Meunier does make sure to fill in any relevant background information for those who aren’t versed in equine speak, but does so in a manner that will keep those in the know captivated as well.
The characters that Meunier develops are all extremely interesting individuals who suit their roles perfectly, even if they themselves are still trying to figure out what that is. Each is fully developed and portrayed in a slightly different manner than the next. This makes it very easy to differentiate between them when switching perspectives. Even the supporting cast is very well developed, rounding out each of the four stories that combine into one fantastic whole.
This novel really shows the way into the heart of a rather closed-door industry. Meunier takes the time to enlighten her readers as to the ins and outs of the job while keeping them entertained and captivated. She also shows all of us horse crazy ladies that a little bit of romance can always find its way into your life and he may even understand that your equine love will always come first! This is definitely a must read for all females in, who have considered, or who have ever thought about a horse.
