Will Holly solve the case before her own time runs out?
A summer storm, a riderless horse, and a competition someone will do anything to win.

The cause of the gelding’s madness is shrouded in a mystery that Hayley must solve. If she doesn’t, Hadrian will never be ridden again.
With an important three day event competition on the horizon, Hayley starts to suspect that what happened that stormy night was no accident. Will she find out who is responsible for Hadrian’s downfall?
What do you do when the future isn’t a bed of roses?
Lydia has spent three years of her life working on what now seems to be a worthless degree. Every job she applies for needs years of work experience and she has precisely none. The only spark of hope comes when her boyfriend, Jake, manages to land her a role as a gardening volunteer at Heathley Park and Gardens, but when she meets the head gardener, Scott, her hopes are crushed.
It doesn’t help that someone has a vendetta against the Heathley gardeners. A vandal is running rampant through the park and gardens and unless they uncover the culprit, Heathley could be just one scuttled boat away from a lawsuit!
Lydia is about to discover that love, life, and landscape gardening, is far from being a bed of roses.
