Murder She Rode
by Holly Menino
Tink Elledge is disappointed that she cannot ride her prized gray horse, Exit Laughing, in the Brandywine, a prestigious three-day equestrian event. She reluctantly turns the reins over to her protégé, Alejandra Delgado, and prepares to watch from the sidelines. A few days before the event a truck accident kills a respected horseman and a promising colt. The young woman riding in the trailer with the colt, Patty McLaren, escapes injury. A few days later Patty, who is Alejandra's roommate, disappears. Menino uses the backdrop of the Brandywine, where the horses go through dressage, cross-country racing and stadium jumping events, for Tink's investigation of Patty's disappearance. This is an excellent debut novel where Menino's love and knowledge of horses and equestrian events shine. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department
