Cause For Elimination by Marla A. White


Competition can be a killer…

 About the Book: Reclaiming her life after a devastating riding accident, equestrian Emily Conners' world shatters again when she discovers her friend and boss lying in a stall with a smashed skull. Now jobless, and with a handsome cop underfoot investigating the case, she's torn between wanting the killer found and keeping her own secrets safe.

Detective Justin Butler always gets his killer, but this victim has a stampede of enemies and few leads to go on. Stonewalled by the tight-knit equestrian world, he looks to Emily for help, but she's strangely reluctant. Is she hiding something, or is she afraid of their growing attraction?


Our Review: Cause For Elimination offers the reader an insider’s take on the seamier side of event competition. It becomes clear, almost from page one, that it is not all the breathtaking jumps and glamourous partying. Training an animal three times your weight and size is exhaustive, back breaking, and heart-breaking. Under it all is a relationship of mutual love and trust between animal and rider—and well worth the ride.


Based on a scale of 1-5, Cause For Elimination merits a 5.
