(Preceded by "Horse in the Mirror" and "Horse in the Portrait")
Ellie and her horse Aslan have an unexpected stay at Garland House but this time, although the horses and riding are still great, things have changed. Jonah is elusive and cold, the former connection between him and Ellie has disappeared, and she feels confused and lonely. There’s another girl on the scene who’s taking all Jonah’s attention but when she leaves, the situation, instead of improving, gets far worse. Jonah seems like he has lost his mind. A crime has been committed but just who is the culprit? Everything points to Jonah, who clams up even more and refuses to defend himself. Even his brother Ricky thinks he’s guilty. Only Ellie believes in Jonah’s innocence and she and Aslan will risk everything to save him.
“Thrilling stories with plenty of horses plus a measure of mystery and suspense.”
