Overview

Equine insurance investigator Connie Holt has a string of good fortune at first. Friend and employer Cary McCutcheon has acquired a fabulous Thoroughbred, Darkling Lord, to run in the Virginia International Gold Cup steeplechase. Her friend, Arabian horse breeder Earlene Collins, finds what could be an original Henry Stull equine painting in the attic of her pre-Civil War home and assigns Connie the pleasant task of finding an art expert. And Connie reunites with a man never out of her mind. But she doesn't know that someone has hired three desperate people to drug Cary's horseā€”for reasons that go far beyond winning or losing a race. Thirteen days before the Gold Cup, Connie discovers the conspiracy. With almost no information to go on, she and Cary must start a relentless, time-starved investigation to learn the truth and save Darkling Lord.

    A Trip To Canterlot part 7

    Rarity heard the scampering of feet outside her door. She opened it, a gust of cold air blowing into her room." Hello?" She called. No answer. She decided it was just her imagination and clised the door. That night, Rarity couldnt seem to sleep. She had a nagging feeling of regret, like she should be sorry about something. She didnt know why, though. The next morning, Rarity decided to see how Spike was doing. After all, they only had 3 more days in Canterlot. She knocked on the door. Nopony answered. The cold wind blew around her, seeming to bite at her hooves. Rarity knew something was wrong. If anything, Spike was probably still sleeping at this time. She opened the door a crack." Hello? Anypony home?" She called. No reply. She stepped inside and closed the door behind her. Spikes stuff was still here. Where was he? Rarity walked quietly through the house. Slowly, she opened the bedroom door. Spike was curled up in his bed, asleep. But something was off. As she got closer, she realized that hot tears were streaming down his face. Rarity gasped and her own eyes filled with tears." What happened? H-he must've heard me! Oh no...." she stuttered." What have i done..."

    Racing Against Time

    Once again, insurance investigator Connie Holt proves her worth when Cary and Pam McCutcheon's best steeplechase horse, Darkling Lord, becomes the target of a terrible plot. With a line-up of colorful characters, author Marilyn Fisher delves into the world of steeplechase racing and the dark forces that drive men to commit despicable acts. Darkling Lord is the star character of this tale, a huge, high-strung horse who responds to only a few chosen handlers, and whose strength and speed promise a coveted win at the Gold Cup. A substitute secretary with ulterior motives, a down-on-his luck stableman with nothing much to lose but his integrity, a naive waitress/groom whose only desire is to find love, and a prominent art restoration expert make for interesting character contrasts throughout the story. So well-defined in the author's first novel, The Case of the Three Dead Horses, Connie Holt uses her skill and intuition to follow the clues and identify both the plot plans and the perpetrators. As the story unfolds, Connie also finds her way back to the man she loved, and recognizes his journey to forgiveness. The author includes a great deal of interesting information that rounds out the story, such as significant details of antique art restoration, history of a famous painter of equine art, and background on some well-known horses in history. Fisher's skill with words and pacing, and her knowledge of horses and the world they inhabit provide plenty of suspense and intrigue in He Trots the Air. The heart-pounding world of steeplechase and dastardly tricks in the horse community make He Trots the Air an irresistible read, as insurance investigator Connie Holt races against time and a roster of despicable characters to save a magnificent black colt from disaster. ~ Toni Leland, author of Rescue Me and Deadly Heritage
