Hi everyone, I am just reading "Kiss and Tell" by Fiona Walker and would really like some recommendations for other books set in the world of horseriding. I've read the usual Jilly Coopers and some of Fiona Walker's other books. Has anyone got any other good suggestions? Thank you!
If you enjoy both Jill Cooper (early stuff) and Fiona Walker try Christina Jones some of her books are based around the horse / stable line (Jumping to Conclusions, Stealing the Show, Running the Risk and Going the Distance) not sure what order the run but they are very good you could also try nothing to lose which is based around the dog racing theme this is the very first book of CJ's that I read and it had me hooked. Hope this helps
If you go to the website below, you will find the most extensive and complete information, not just about pony books for children but also about adult fiction in the world of horse riding. The creator of the site, Jane Badger originally started a small site for pony book lovers as an information sideline to her business as a seller of pony books, but over the last 4 years has worked ceaselessly and vastly expanded her site which now also includes a section of horse books for adults. It is definitely worth visiting to get the information you want.
Why, oh why, has Fiona Walker decided not to have her latest book published as a hardback. There are still many of us out there who don't want to buy a flimsy paperback and as a compulsive book reader and collector, I wouldn't dream of spending a penny on Amazon's Kindle or other computer books. What would I put in my book cases? I like her new book, I am an avid reader of adult horse books, but I simply won't be pressurised into buying non-hardbacks.
I couldn't help but reply to your post. I'm a racing romance author, who takes her inspiration from the likes of Jilly Cooper and Christina Jones. You could check out my two novels recently published. They are not part of a series but similar to the Rutshire Chronicles, characters reappear in other books so it'd be worth your while to start with At Long Odds before moving onto Keeping the Peace.
