I got this book because it was about horses. I did not realize until I started to listen to the story it was written for young people or teens. I we..Show More »nt ahead listening as the plot was interesting. Who killed the vet? The story takes place in Fairmont Riding Academy, our hero Vivienne Taylor is a scholarship winner to the school, she is a junior in high school with hopes of going to the Olympics. She is the daughter of a horse vet (her mother) from a small Oregon town off to the southern California academy to compete with rich kids. She is provided a horse, Harmony, and Vivienne, a equine empath can not get a reading from the horse. She finds out the horse belonged to the dead vet and the horse was present when the vet died. Vivienne is sure the vet was murdered and set out to prove it. Over all the book was quite good, my only complaint was the continues remarks about boys. Do teenage girl really act like that? Lots of good information about horses, jumping, dressage, and cross country competition. This was my sport when I was young so I was most interested in how it was approached by Michele Scott. The narrator, Amy McFadden does a good job sounding like a teenage girl.
