Mother-daughter relationships can be complicated, particularly when the two have their sights on the same prize. Such is the case with the main characters in the book, The Horsewoman, by authors James Patterson and Mike Lupica. Becky McCabe and her mother Maggie Atwood are champion riders with a goal toward making Olympic history, but only one of the talented equestrians can make it to the games. Add political intrigue and two very sinister foes to the story of strong women in competition, and you have the ingredients for a compelling mystery.
Patterson is a seasoned thriller writer with many best-selling novels to his credit, Lupica, a renowned sportswriter, brings insight into the world of equestrian disciplines such as dressage and show jumping. The pair produced a novel that’s exciting and full of surprises.
