July Book Giveaway

Special for this month: Win an autographed copy!

Whirlwind by Alison Hart is an upper-MG horse mystery with a touch of romance. What more could a girl want? :) This signed copy (not an ARC) would make a fine gift for the horse-loving, mystery-loving, or book-loving tween in your life. Though a sequel to Hart's Shadow Horse, the book stands on its own. In the earlier book, thirteen-year-old Jas was devastated to find her beloved mare, Whirlwind, dead in her stall. But now she knows the dead horse wasn't Whirlwind. Her horse's death was faked -- by a wealthy breeder who collected both the insurance money on the "dead" horse and the fee for re-selling her to an unsuspecting buyer. He'll get away with his scheme unless Jas can find the horse, but he's threatened to ruin her life if she tries. How much should she risk to search for a horse that may be impossible to find?
