Product Description

Product Description

All Alex wants for Christmas is a little peace and quiet. After all the drama of her summer in Saratoga, she's been taking it easy around the farm, enjoying the horses (and baiting Alexander). But a phone call from a local charity changes all that.

When Alex meets Wendy, a young girl with a tragic past, she finds herself going to surprising lengths to brighten Wendy's life – and visiting some surprising places. A filly named Christmas, a horse-crazy kid, and a trainer who never thought much about holidays or children – Claiming Christmas celebrates the bond between horse and human, and between a trainer and student.

*In keeping with its racetrack theme, this book contains strong language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 14 Jan 2014

If I could have given this book ten stars, I would have. Natalie's Alex and Alexander novels are among my favorites, and as far as I'm concerned, she can't write them fast enough for me. I can't wait for her follow-up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uplifting Christmas read, especially for horse lovers! 15 Dec 2013
By Linda Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Oh, what a wonderful Christmas read! Actually, a heart-warming read for any season. We do get to know hard-bitten horsewoman Alex a little better in this story. Not a particularly likeable gal, she is so devoted to her horses that she disregards holidays, and often the feelings of most people, too. She's impatient, hard to get along with, and swears like a sailor. Not a particularly good role model to be chosen for 11-year-old Wendy, who gets dumped on her right before Christmas. Alex must chaperone this kid around the race track and the horse farm, and boy howdy does she resent that.

But when Wendy has an instant connection to a racing filly with a name that appears to be kismet, Alex recognizes a kindred spirit. Doesn't Alex also fall hard for horses? And somehow, Wendy's desire and can-do attitude softens Alex's heart.

Although I thought I saw the ending coming (given the name of the book) there was a twist at the end that caused my heart to pulse in my throat. It's good writing for the soft-hearted among us. Even perhaps for those who, like Alex, appear to have a tough side that is hard to pierce. With lots of horseracing details, which Ms. Reinert's writing is known for, this one also contains a Christmas dose of miracles, or destiny, or whatever makes your heart melt. Really enjoyed this one!
