Once in awhile, I need to dive deep into a novel free from bloody criminal cases or real-life dramas. As drawn to horse stories as I am, a novel with both the word "horse" in the title AND an illustration of a horse on the cover, has to be good. I have been let down before but this didn't let me down. Although the plot and characters were just average developed, the book was worth my time reading. Moyes knows her horses.
