Book Description

26 Sep 2013 The One Dollar Horse

When Casey Blue's victory at the Badminton Horse Trials earns her and Storm an invitation to the prestigious Kentucky Three Day Event, it is a dream come true. But that dream is about to turn into a nightmare.

After her father is arrested for a crime Casey is convinced he didn't commit, she finds herself the victim of a vicious blackmailer. To make matters worse, Storm is behaving like the wild horse he once was. Faced with losing everything she loves, she needs the help of her farrier boyfriend, Peter, to win in Kentucky, one of the most challenging riding competitions there is. But is he for her or against her?

Product Description

Review

The One Dollar Horse is certain to be huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and K M Peyton. (BOOKS FOR KEEPS)

There are many twists and turns but the plot is easy to follow and gripping, I would recommend this book for girls aged from twelve through to adult. The author has a flowing style and an art for bringing her characters to life. (NEWBOOKSMAG)

Lauren St John's The One Dollar Horse is rare among pony books in setting its dream-come-true story in inner-city London... Writerly, full of equestrian knowledge and rich in character - not least of the horse - this is also a tale of first love, and is a handsome package with deep pink-edged pages. (Nicolette Jones THE SUNDAY TIMES)

...one of the best characters in this thrilling rags-to-riches tale is Storm Warning. You can't help but identify with this courageous animal and St John makes you feel the thrill of what it must be like to jump over a fence on such a horse with such heart and soul. No nagging doubts, this book's a winner. (Martin Chilton TELEGRAPH ONLINE)

Certain to be a huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and KM Peyton. (BOOKS FOR KEEPS)

By JOJO12
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought the first book- the one dollar horse- with my Christmas book token and loved it. I got this one on kindle for a lot less and love it even more! This book is exhilarating. It captures all of the parts of real eventing in its blue tipped pages. I loved reading this and can't wait to read the 3rd and final book in the series( Fire storm).
