A gifted trainer in a time women are not allowed to race, Nora Fenton prefers horses to men. They're easier to handle, they're more reliable, and they never tell her what to do. After her father's passing, Nora is determined to save her struggling horse farm, starting with entering her prize colt into the harness races at the 1905 Mississippi Fair. If she wins, she may have a chance at independence. But when a stranger arrives and starts asking disconcerting questions, she suspects he may have other motives than unseating her in the training job that is rightfully hers.

Silas Cavallero will do whatever it takes to solve the mystery of his father's death--even if it means training an unwieldy colt for Nora, who wants nothing more than to see him gone. But when mysterious accidents threaten their safety and circumstances shrouded in secrets begin unlocking clues to his past, Silas will have to decide if the truth is worth risking ruining everything for the feisty woman he's come to admire.

My Review:

Oh my goodness was this such a good read! Not that the author wasn’t already on my favorites list for her easily observed deep love for history in her writing, but the suspense in this one kept the pages essentially turning themselves until the very end! I simply HAD to have answers! The characters were so well developed, and I couldn’t help but be totally captivated by their story. The author did a masterful job of weaving doubts of suspicion over multiple characters throughout the novel, so you truly had no idea who you could trust and who was a sneaky snake. This constant suspicion is what kept my eyes glued to the pages and I quite literally couldn’t put this book down. I finished it in just two days! DEFINITELY one I’d highly recommend to my historical fiction friends!
