First reviews are always the most nerve-wracking. A bit like having a horse making its first start - it's been working well on the Gallops at home, but you don't know what you've got until you let loose on the racecourse.
Well, The Rubber Curry Comb put my fears to rest and Making the Running makes it a winning debut!

It's nearly here! The fourth Aspen Valley instalment is on its way and will be ready for download next month. To whet your appetite in the meantime, here is the cover and blurb.
For Kate Creswell, an Aspen Valley stable lass, life is looking rosy. She's landed herself a steady boyfriend in wealthy racing manager, Nicholas Borden, and her ambition to lead up a Cheltenham Festival contender looks set to be realised when grey prankster, d'Artagnan, is placed in her care.
But things are rarely what they appear on closer inspection. It's becoming increasingly difficult to keep her mother's alcoholism a secret from the well-to-do Borden family, and Nicholas mightn't be cheering on d'Artagnan for the same reasons as she - if at all. Meanwhile her erratic sister, Saskia, is intent on seducing their boss, something Kate is convinced will cost them both their jobs.
Amidst the chaos, Kate finds a friend in d'Artagnan's laidback jockey, Ben de Jager. He's uncomplicated and easy-going - a perfect match for Saskia, she naively thinks - but he's a very reluctant winner considering he's a past champion rider. So, maybe not so uncomplicated.
A lot of things can change between flag fall and finish line. Nothing is a certainty. Not in life, not in love, and not in racing.

If you haven't yet read Share and Share Alike, here's one more blogger, 2 Talk Horses, to convince you to pick it up in what she describes as a "can't put it down" novel.
Many thanks to Pat for her review and the interview which is soon to follow.

Thankfully there was no book-throwing, mudslinging or any other flinging from Books, Mud and Compost. And Horses. when its review of Share and Share Alike was revealed.
Instead, when phrases such as "rare breed", "lays the trail well" and "just right for curling up with" (the book that is, not me) are scattered around, I'm as happy as a pig in compost.
