A summer at one of the poshest riding camps in the province. A hundred horses. Rolling hills ribboned with hacking trails and cross-country jumps.
It could be perfect. Unless you’re Lacey Strickland, and you’re leaving Salem, Meg, and Jared behind on the island.
The only thing that isn’t hard to leave is Lacey’s memory of her first kiss, delivered in a spring-scented hayfield, which sizzled, then fizzled into nothing at all.
The other thing making camp less-than-perfect for Lacey? She’s not a cosseted camper, but a staff member – teaching riding lessons from sun-up to sun-down.
In Meg’s first letter to Lacey, she writes: “I bet anything there’s at least one amazing horse waiting for you there. And maybe a new great – if not best – friend.”
Is Meg right? Could Lacey meet a horse she’ll love just as much as Salem? And are there new friends in her future? Maybe even somebody who could give her more than just one kiss in a hayfield?

An enjoyable entry in the Island series by Tudor Robins. This book makes a change and the lead character is Lacey, Jared's sister. She gets a job at a ritzy summer camp, helping the young girls. While I enjoyed the book, I think the whole “join up” thing has been done to death. Not every.single.horse.in.the.world needs to do join up. And of course in the book, join up solves every problem. But the horse stuff was great, as is generally the case with Tudor Robins' stories. And the story was good (although the characters didn't seem to have the depth that the characters in the first two books did). Still, I enjoyed it and will go on to order the last book in the series.
