I like this book as well as the series. Brooke Lauren is the best author that writes about horses. She has another series that I know about that is called the Chestnut Hill Series. You should check it out! Once you start reading there is no turning back. Once you open it you must finish it and start the next book till the end of the series. I believe that all who read this series must read the following; -Chestnut Hill -Saddle Club -Phantom Stallion -Canterwood Crest -ect. These books are good at expressing feelings of horses and sometimes have good tips if you just define it better. I just wish it was in print still. Good luck and don't forget the other series! One leads to another.

This book is just too good for words. Amy is one of those characters that you can relate to. Being a horse lover myself, and a big reader, i reread this book all of these books, over and over again.

taking chances was so good.i liked it had a lot of ty and amy.i hated the way ty and amy fought a lot because she could talk to him about everything and the way the author dicribed it seamed to realy hert ty.the best part is the end when they get all the secrates out of the way when ty takes her hand and says my futer is here at heartland and with you.i think the perfict ending would be ty asking amy out

i loved this book!!! i got the first one when it come out and never really got into it. in fact, i never started it! then i picked the first book up on the 6th, wanting to read somthing different, and loved it! i then had to get the next 2 books right away! i read the first 3 books in 2 days total. i thought the first 3 books were great, but this one was better! i read this book in roughly 3 hours! it was that good! i love these books and recommend them to anyone! not just horse lovers!

Theese books are true from cover to cover! I had been born in California, and the first time I ever rode a horse was when I was 3 month old. Later on, I moved to Texas and started reading theese books. They inspired me to be a better person, to never give up and to stand up for myself. I can relate to her alot, being a pre-teen myself. I RECOMMEND THEESE BOOKS TO ALL AGES!

These books are really good. I don't own a horse, but my grandparents do, and after riding him, I try t-touch on him.

but then again heartland books are so far up from many other books lol :) this book was OK, but it didn't really draw me into the world as the others did. It was mostly misunderstandings and stuff. But it's definitely worth your time to read. I just felt it wasn't as deep as the other books. Keep up the great work though!

Taking Chances was a great book. I am so glad that Ty did not go to Green Briar. I would have been just like Amy and been really mad at him.

This book is the best so far, I am almost done with it. I can't wait to read the other books in the series, but this one is definetley the most emotional of the books in the series so far. I Love this book! Heartland RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
