James Patterson and Mike Lupica (award winning sports writer) teamed up for the novel, The Horsewoman. I don’t know much about horses, but the characters in this book appealed to me and I thought it was a good story that didn’t require intense concentration like the complicated mysteries I’ve been reading.
Caroline, and Maggie Atwood and Becky McCabe (grandmother, mother and daughter) are owners of a horse farm in Florida. Maggie’s dream has always been to make it to the Olympics – and she finally has the horse to do it. Of course, there are many bumps along the way . . . The story of the various horse jumping competitions is fine, but I especially loved the relationships between the three women.
The Horsewoman was a nice story with a realistic competitive feel between Maggie and Becky. The two trainers are interesting characters also but the “bad guys” are kind of stereotyped. Even so, I really liked this book.
