Publisher's Summary

Kelsey Byden grew up believing her mother had died when she was three. Now, at 26 and freshly divorced, she receives a letter from her mother explaining that she is alive and living on a Virginia horse farm. Deeply strung by lies told to protect her, Kelsey takes her anger out at her college professor father by going to visit her mother, who Kelsey learns spent over 10 years in prison for murder. But there are more secrets to be found out, and Kelsey decides to stay at her mother's splendid horse farm where she falls in love with horses and the man next door - handsome gambler Gabe Slater. When murdered men and injured horses turn up, Kelsey finds evil lurking where she least expects it, and risks all to restore her mother's honor.

Critic Reviews

"Roberts paints her story with a broad brush, but its colorful canvas, easily identifiable heroes and villains and swirling action add up to another winner for this popular author." ( Publishers Weekly)

A moderately good listen

Any additional comments?

Initially, I thought I'd chosen a dud. It took a little while to get into the story, but it did ultimately engage me and overall, I enjoyed it.

Eh

I generally love Nora Roberts' books, but I couldn't wait for this one to get over. I enjoyed learning about horse racing and their owners, but never really invested in the characters. The narrator used a high pitched 'girly' voice for the main character that was especially grating. I like Nora's strong women-- this one came off as stupid and weak in comparison.
