A spine-tingling adventure with as many twists and turns as a steeplechase course.
“The Jagged Circle is full of suspense and a perfect book for horse lovers.” — Amber Marshall, equestrian and star of CBC's Heartland
It’s spring break and Evangeline Gibb is bored, stuck at her Gran Mary’s farm mucking stalls while her friends are away on vacation. She decides to spend the time training her horse to ride cross-country. But everything changes when Evie takes Kazzam for a gallop through the woods and makes a grisly discovery.
In a hoof-pounding race against time, Evie and her heroic black horse team up to solve a mystery involving treachery, murder, and deception that involves her troubled stepsister, a circle of runaway teen girls, and long-hidden truths about her family.
An electrifying adventure with as many terrifying obstacles as the March Madness Steeplechase, The Jagged Circle explores the need for connection and the devastation that occurs when the family circle threatens to break.
Shelley Peterson is the bestselling author of several published novels for young readers, including Sundancer, Christmas at Saddle Creek, and Jockey Girl. She raises horses at Fox Ridge, her family’s stable in Caledon.
A propulsive plot that reads like the best Nancy Drew mystery, with a unique edge. Perfect for readers young and old!
This outing will thrill Peterson’s fans — she has many in Canada — and should win her some new ones.
Peterson tackles the tough societal issues of addiction, abuse, and homelessness with compassion and the understanding that people are not always who we want them to be.
Peterson’s depiction of the racing world is intriguing and comprehensive, and stories about girls and their horses will never go out of style.
Growing up, Shelley’s books were always my favourite. As a horse lover they transported me into a magical world and this latest addition does not disappoint. The Jagged Circle is full of suspense and a perfect book for horse lovers!
The Jagged Circle is a thrilling read and I really enjoyed it. The real places mixed with fiction make it extra exciting. I will definitely think of your book the next time I ride through those trails and woods!
