Targeting the young adult reader, Trail of Secrets is like an equestrian Nancy Drew meets the Ghost Whisperer story. Full of mystery, secrets, daring-do and a great girl hero, the book offers plenty of twists and turns that will keep teen readers engaged.

Spending three weeks of her summer at the elite Foxwoode Riding Academy should have been one of the happiest times of sixteen year-old Brynlei’s life but from the moment she arrives at Foxwoode, Brynlei can’t shake the feeling that she’s being watched. Then she hears the story of a girl who vanished on a trail ride four years earlier, but while the other girls laugh over the story of the dead girl who supposedly 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 Brynlei’s search for answers and will go to any length to stop her. As she begins to unravel the facts surrounding the missing girl’s disappearance, Brynlei is faced with an impossible choice: will she protect a valuable secret or save a life?

About the author: Laura Wolfe lives in Michigan with her husband, son and daughter. She is an accomplished English rider and a lover of animals and nature. When she’s not writing, she can be found playing games with her highly-energetic kids, growing vegetables in her garden, or spoiling her rescue dog.

“In my previous life, I was an attorney, a legal editor, and a successful real estate broker. After having kids, I quickly decided that life was too short not to pursue my passions.”

Laura dreams of living in a log cabin on a large acreage that is ideally in a slightly warmer climate. She holds a BA in English from the University of Michigan and a JD from DePaul University. Her writing has been published in multiple magazines, including Practical Horseman.
