Sometimes people vanish for a reason…
Spending three weeks of her summer at the Foxwoode Riding Academy in northern Michigan should have been one of the happiest times of sixteen-year-old Brynlei’s life. But from the moment Brynlei arrives at Foxwoode, she can’t shake the feeling she’s being watched. Then she hears the story of a girl who vanished on a trail ride four years earlier. While the other girls laugh over the story of the dead girl who haunts Foxwoode, Brynlei senses that the girl–or her ghost–may be lurking in the shadows.
Brynlei’s quest to reveal the truth interferes with her plan to keep her head down and win Foxwoode’s coveted Top Rider Award. To make things worse, someone discovers her search for answers and will go to any length to stop her. As Brynlei begins to unravel the facts surrounding the missing girl’s disappearance, she is faced with an impossible choice. Will she protect a valuable secret? Or save a life?

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I always wanted to write a mystery that was set against the backdrop of a horseback riding academy/summer camp. I thought to myself, what if a girl went out on a trail ride and her horse came back without her? What if no one ever knew what really happened to her? I couldn't stop thinking about that scenario, so I knew I had to write a book about it!
