"Carly Kade has built a beautiful life at Green Briar in her In the Reins series with characters the horse world has come to love. The other day I was out with my horses, mucking and doing barn chores, and caught myself thinking about Green Briar and how I wished I lived there!" - Laurie Berglie, Author of Where the Bluegrass Grows and Kicking On

"The third installment in this series brings us a quieter, reflective look at the world of horsemanship through the eyes of our favorite characters, Devon and McKennon. The story paints a vivid and accurate portrayal of the responsibilities of caring for an injured horse, training a young horse from the ground up, and the challenges of preparing for competition. Through it all, we see Devon and McKennon grow even closer as a couple as they freely share their love for their horses -- and each other. A very satisfying addition to a lovely series." - Amy Elizabeth, Author of the Aspen Eyes Series

"It's so awesome to have such a good writer creating fresh and engaging stories revolving around horses. If you need some good summer reading and you love great fiction with horses, then get to reading! Even if you're not a horse person, you can still enjoy because the characters are really interesting. I highly recommend!" - Sarah Conrad, Equestrian Journalist, Lexington, KY
