HorseFever, Coming to Bookstore Near You!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of speaking with Lee Hope, the author of a soon-to-be-published novel, Horsefever.  Love the cover!

Books are not a routine topic here but I decided to give this one a go as I thought it might appeal to HCC readers.  The book takes place in the eventing world and Hope garnered the assistance of well-known eventer, Gretchen Butts, who was my neighbor when I lived in Maryland. Small world isn't it?  So the book will meet the technical requirements of a seasoned horse pro.  You can find the book here.

The author is also a former rider (dressage) so she knows horses.  Lee is a seasoned editor but this is her first novel and hopefully not her last.  She used some real life events to add background to her story which I found fascinating, a real murder case. In real life the people in the case were musicians but she changed them to horse people for the book.  There is a "class divide" also in the book (again from the murder case).  She read the trial transcripts and even attended a civil suit after the verdict. 

Hope has melded a perfect concoction in Horsefever - horses, a murder mystery, a little passion, some suspense, all wrapped around our four-legged friends.  Add this one to your 2016 reading list.

  1. An intriguing book! I took my time savoring the complicated relationships among the three key characters. Lee brings an intoxicating sensory-sensual connection to the essence of this sexy intrigue.
