Lisa's dad is consumed by his own bitterness at having to sell Evergreen Manor and all the horses to a stranger. When he discovers that Lisa is visiting the new owner old Mr. Pickering, he completely loses it. He grabs her arm and yells at her. Lisa is scared. This is not the dad she used to know. But she is determined to go on visiting the old man and her beloved horse Jupiter. She sneaks out at night - not only to avoid her dad's anger but also to try and stay clear of Mr. Pickering's horrible nephew Jimmy. Jimmy has told her that his uncle doesn't want Lisa around the stables anymore, but Lisa does not believe him. When Jimmy starts to become increasingly threatening, Lisa doesn't know what to do.
Then - out of the blue - a mysterious girl with golden hair appears. She says her name is Angelica and offers to help Lisa. Lisa is grateful, but scared as well. There is something really weird about this unknown girl. Who is she? Where did she come from?
Here's an interesting mix of a murder mystery and the supernatural! The book is about a girl, her horse, and the supernatural being (an angel?) that protects horses and the people who love them. Although the series is called "Horse Angel" it wasn't religious and will be enjoyed by non-religious readers. The author did a great job of setting up suspense and characters. Only "4" on the scale because the characters could have been a little more developed but were still definitely worth reading. This book has the promise to create the base for a good series.
