Overview

Small town seventeen-year-old Vivienne Taylor is a talented equestrian with Olympic dreams and a little something extra going on — she is also an “equine empath,” someone who has the ability to read horses’ minds and moods. When she receives a full scholarship to attend Fairmont Riding Academy, a prep school with a famous riding program, she struggles with homesickness, hazing by the school’s snooty drama queen, intense competition in the sport of three-day-eventing, and the not-altogether-unwelcome interest of a hot guy. On top of all of that the horse given to Vivienne via the scholarship is an animal that she cannot “read” or understand. When Vivienne learns that her new horse Harmony belonged to the school’s vet, who recently died in a freak accident, she senses that the horse’s aloof behavior may be the result of her witnessing this accident. But as a connection begins to unfold between Vivienne and Harmony, Vivienne begins to believe that the vet’s death was no accident at all — but rather murder — and she resolves, at considerable peril, to track down the killer.

Michele Scott lives in California with her family. With her days spent in the barn or at the keyboard, Ms. Scott has forged a flourishing career as mystery writer and is also deeply involved in the world of horses and equestrian riding.

Gr 7 Up—Vivienne Taylor, 17, is an expert horseback rider and has the uncanny ability to connect mentally with the animals and read what they are thinking and feeling. She dreams of going all the way to the Olympics, but realizes that it won't happen in her small town despite her intense training regime. Then she receives a full scholarship to the prestigious Fairmont Riding Academy, a prep school that has produced many Olympians, and she knows it is the ticket to her dreams. However, being the "scholarship" girl at a school of wealthy, beautiful, and talented students isn't easy, and Vivienne has her work cut out for her. Amy Mcfadden does a brilliant job capturing all of Vivienne's insecurities and vulnerabilities. Listeners can hear the strain and turmoil in her voice as she deals with a host of issues from normal teen angst to being thrown into a complicated murder cover-up on campus. McFadden's use of volume and pitch make her male voices realistic and distinct, and she easily keeps up with the fast-moving plot. Mystery fans, romantics, and horse lovers will enjoy Scott's first title (Skyscape, 2013) in a projected series and eagerly await the next adventure.—Shari Fesko, Southfield Public Library, MI
