5-Star Review of "Blue Ribbon Trail Ride"

Review of Blue Ribbon Trail Ride

(Horses and Friends book #4)

by Miralee Ferrell


Thirteen-year old Kate and her friends came up with the perfect way to raise money for her autistic younger brother and others to attend summer camp—a horse scavenger hunt! As local businesses donate money and prizes, Kate keeps the entry fees in her mom’s antique jewelry box.

But when the box and the money disappear, Kate and her friends must unravel the clues, hold on to hope, and solve the mystery along the Blue Ribbon Trail Ride.

MY REVIEW:  What could be more fun than a scavenger hunt on horseback with amazing prizes?   Kate and her friends come up with the idea to raise money to send Kate's autistic brother and others to summer camp but things go awry when the antique box with all the entry fees is stolen.   Kate, Tori, Melissa, and Colt then become amateur detectives and set up a sting operation to catch the thief and get the box and money back.  
This series is just plain fun and engaging!   It is written for  young adults but I love the books and this one was true to form and just as wonderful as the others!  Kate and her family are incredible Christian witnesses to all those around them and use their faith to help others on a daily basis.    Horse lovers are certain to be thrilled with this book also but I am personally not a big "horse lover" and yet these books are favorites of mine.  
I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers, young and old!   
I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

About the Author:
 Miralee Ferrell

Miralee Ferrell and her husband, Allen, live on eleven acres in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in southern Washington State, where they love to garden, play with their dogs, take walks, and go sailing. She is also able to combine two other passions—horseback riding and spending time with her grown children—since her married daughter lives nearby, and they often ride together on the wooded trails near their home. 

Ironically, Miralee, now the author of eighteen books, with many more on the way, never had a burning desire to write—at least more than her own memoirs for her children. So she was shocked when God called her to start writing after she turned fifty. To Miralee, writing is a ministry that she hopes will impact hearts, and she anticipates how God will use each of her books to bless and change lives.
