Eighteen-year-old Tanzy Hightower knows horses, has grown up with them on Wildwood Farm. She also knows not to venture beyond the trees that line the pasture. Things happen out there that can’t be explained. Or undone. Worse, no one but she and the horses can see what lurks in the shadows of the woods.
When a moonlit ride turns into a terrifying chase, Tanzy is left to question everything, from the freak accident that killed her father to the very blood in her veins. Broken and confused, she turns to Lucas, a scarred, beautiful stranger, and to Vanessa, a charming new friend who has everything Tanzy doesn’t.
But why do they seem to know more about her than she knows herself?
Fabulous and FUN!!!! I must say as someone who absolutely LOVES Horses, I had an immediate love for Tanzy. Her love of horses matches my own. Tanzy has had it rough, her mother is drinking a LOT, her father passed away, but his body has never been found. And this is what we find out in the first chapter!
Now besides the beautiful and magnificent horses, gosh how I miss riding, we have the entire Paranormal aspect. And boy is this one stupendous adventure! I loved how the Author did the path that Tanzy has been a part of unknowingly of course. And talk about you will NEVER believe who the good guys and bad guys are!
For a first novel this not only is a wonderful piece of writing but is well developed, kept me flipping pages rapidly, and kept me up late, late, late into the night. You never know who to put your trust in, in this book! And that is one thing I loved about this book!
Character creation is fabulous, Tanzy is a strange mix but I fell in love with her. I kept bitching at Tanzy to stop being such a fool about certain things, I can't go into here, but suffice it to say she didn't listen. They never do *sigh*.
This book is a great story, an amazingly vivid writing style completes the fabulous plot. I truly cannot wait to read more from this very talented author! 5 stars is the best I can give so that is exactly what I give this tremendous book!
Now not being known for my patience I must say here that this book DOES leave you wanting... no, no YEARNING for more! So I must say that I truly hope that Jadie Jones gets book 2 into my greedy little hands ASAP!!!! *hint hint* Yes I am more than willing to read and review book 2!
Details/Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review. This free book held no determination on my final review.
“Tanzy! Phone for you,” Dana calls from down the barn aisle.
“Who is it?” I ask as I approach her.
She shrugs. “He didn’t say. Just that it was important.”
He? What he would be calling me? The last man that called for me was a police officer who’d found my mother babbling incoherently by a water fountain in town a few months back. I hope she didn’t try to drive somewhere again. I thought I hid her keys pretty well this time.
“You got a boyfriend you need to tell me about?” Dana teases before she hands me the phone.
“Right. When have I ever had time for one of those?”
She gives me a playful swat before moving back to the center of the riding ring.
“This is Tanzy,” I say into the receiver. No one answers, but I can tell that someone is still on the other end. “Hello?”
“Be careful today,” a man’s voice whispers. The gravelly sound makes my ears hot and stirs at something under my ribs.
“What’s that supposed to mean? Who is this?”
“Just please be careful. It’s an important day,” he repeats. His deep voice is thick with urgency. “I need you to be careful. I need you…”
“Who is this?” Is this some kind of joke? The restraint it takes to keep myself from yelling makes my words come out like a growl. Immediately, the line goes dead. I glare at the beeping receiver and then hang it up.
“Who was it, Tanzy?” Dana calls from the arena.
“Wrong number. Is Molly coming for her lesson?” I ask, changing the subject before she can tell that I’m lying.
