Overview

Tommi, Kate, and Zara are well established in the world of elite horse showing. But being a pro in your sport doesnt mean youre a pro in your social life.


Tommi, the billionaire heiress, is training a young horse to prove to her father that she can make horses a real career. But when her new beau, Alex, convinces her to skip a horse show in order to party in the Hamptons, the results could be disastrous. Meanwhile, Zara, the celebutante wild child is finally taking her riding seriously. Until the new "nanny" her dad hires while hes touring in Europe threatens to upstage Zaras party girl status. And then theres Kate. She doesnt have money to burn like the other girls, but she does have Fitz, the barns resident hot guy. But Kates perfectionist tendencies threaten to get in the way of her relationship and her riding when her friends suspect she has an eating disorder.


The parties are hot, the riding is intensely competitive, and the social drama spills from the parties right into the show ring.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jill Walton
The good life on the horse circuit is not easy whether one lives in the "one per cent" strata like Tommi and Zara or "needs must make ends meet," like Kate. Parties, intrigue, accidents, horse shows, troubled parents, neglectful parents, these teenage girls have it all! Tommi has a new boyfriend, Alex, and she wants to spend more time with him and less time training horses. Tommi trains horses to be sold to the highest bidder, but sometimes the highest bidder is not the right choice for the horse. Alex does not recognize that Tommi needs to party less to fulfill her commitments. Zara is in constant party mode but suddenly she has been outdone. Zara is now approaching the day she will have to deal with one of her divorced absent parents, her actress mother is coming for a visit. Zara's famous father, off to Europe, left her in the care of a young relative who has trashed the place and skipped. Kate is dealing with her mother's OCD and developing a mental health issue of her own. Is her love interest, Fitz, good for her or another self-destructive force in her life? Tommi and Zara are worried about Kate and attempt an intervention. All girls, Tommi, Zara and Kate are committed to their stable, Pelham Lane. Most problems are not solved in this second of the "A Circuit Novel" series. Romance, wealth and girls who are the savviest about horses will appeal to young female readers of this series. It is a light read for entertainment.

Tommi,Zara, and Kate try to balance their love of horses, competitions, friends,boyfriends, family, work, and shopping. In this second book in the series, Tommi has a new boyfriend who doesn’t always help her make the best decisions; sometimes "catty" Zara deals with the annoyance of having a “babysitter” who turns out to be less responsible than she is; and, Kate learns that friends want to help her balance work and her health. The reader will love getting to know these dynamic and interesting characters. The author can really make the reader care what the characters do in the novel and how their decisions play out. Who doesn’t love horses? Although I know something about horses, showing, jumping, and stables, I learned something from the descriptions of riding and caring for horses in this book. I loved that Kate found a potential ride, one that might rival her wealthy friends’ mounts, in a small country stable. The descriptions of the horses and environment can really make the book come alive for the reader. I don’t usually watch the teen/young adult TV dramas, but My Favorite Mistake reminds me of series like “Gossip Girl” and “Pretty Little Liars”.
