Book Review: "Mystery Rider" by Miralee Ferrell

"Mystery Rider" by Miralee Ferrell is the third book in the Horse and Friends series and starts up immediately after where the second book, "Silver Spurs", ends. Kate Ferris still is a little leary of whether Melissa Tolbert is hanging out with them because she's bored, planning to play a trick on them, or if she's truly their friend now. On top of her concerns about Melissa, a mysterious rider on a black horse appears in front of their house. Can she and her friends solve the mystery?

Like the other two books in the series, "Mystery Rider" was a fun and enjoyable book to read. It is geared for kids about 8-12 years old, but adults would like it also. I like how Miralee works in life lessons through the things that Kate and her friends learn (not getting revenge, thinking of how another person would feel, etc.). The gospel message is also presented in the book in a smooth and seamless way. It would be best to read this book only after having first read the other two books. They flow from one book to the next and you would miss out on learning the characters' stories if you don't.
