Maggie Dane's Keeping Secrets is one of the best books I've read! The realistic setting and characters had me hooked from page one. I, too, rode my bike as a teen to find a stable that would give me a job!
When Kate McGregor lands the job to be a companion for a teen in a wheelchair, she is thrilled. She is less than thrilled to find out the girl, Holly, and her mother spend most of their time at the stable.
Due to a horse's death at her last barn, Kate had sworn off horses for good. She tries to keep her riding skills a secret until an emergency has her mount up. Another rider at the barn watches her jump the gate and tries to blackmail her.
The descriptive equine scenes, the well-rounded characters and the believable dialog kept this book a page-turner!
