March 2014 Book of the Month Award winning Lauren St John brings her The One Dollar Horse Trilogy to a brilliant conclusion with a gripping thriller capturing the excitement, courage, romance and danger that surround Casey Blue. Casey is now a champion rider with a wonderful horse and a fabulous boyfriend. But everything in Kyle’s life is turned upside down when Kyle, an equestrian coach, appears on the scene. Suddenly, Kyle’s life doesn’t seem so secure. She has some very tough choices to make and, when she does, everything in her life will be affected. Will Casey come through it all?

Fire Storm by Lauren St.John
Teenage eventing star Casey Blue has it all - fame, her champion horse Storm and a boyfriend who loves her. Then Kyle West walks into her life. The country's hottest equestrian coach is also drop dead gorgeous and Casey knows right away that she's in trouble. But who is Kyle and why are there so many unanswered questions about his past? And what is his connection to Anna Sparks, Casey's old rival? As the Burghley Horse Trials approaches, it becomes clear that what is at stake is not just the Grand Slam but Casey's life.
The One Dollar Horse is certain to be huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and K M Peyton.
There are many twists and turns but the plot is easy to follow and gripping, I would recommend this book for girls aged from twelve through to adult. The author has a flowing style and an art for bringing her characters to life. NEWBOOKSMAG
Lauren St John's The One Dollar Horse is rare among pony books in setting its dream-come-true story in inner-city London... Writerly, full of equestrian knowledge and rich in character - not least of the horse - this is also a tale of first love, and is a handsome package with deep pink-edged pages. -- Nicolette Jones THE SUNDAY TIMES
...one of the best characters in this thrilling rags-to-riches tale is Storm Warning. You can't help but identify with this courageous animal and St John makes you feel the thrill of what it must be like to jump over a fence on such a horse with such heart and soul. No nagging doubts, this book's a winner. -- Martin Chilton TELEGRAPH ONLINE
Certain to be a huge favourite with readers and will bear comparison with classic horse stories by authors such as Patricia Leitch and KM Peyton. BOOKS FOR KEEPS
