"Silver Spurs" by Miralee Ferrell

About this book:

  “Kate’s dream of owning a horse has finally happened. But now her best friend Tori has no money to buy a horse. So Kate comes up with a plan—she’ll raise money by boarding horses and hosting a show in her family’s barn.
  It seems the perfect solution until Melissa, the girl who disses Kate and Tori at school, shows up to board her horse, determined to compete in their show and win the silver spurs. Will their plan be ruined—or does God have something better in store for them all?”

Series: Book #2 in the “Horses and Friends” series. (Review of Book #1 Here!)

Spiritual Content- Prayers; Talks about God; ‘H’s are capital when referring to God; Kate admits to not thinking that God is very practical (she later shakes herself out of that idea); Many mentions of prayers; Mentions of church; A couple mentions of miracles & godsends;

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: three ‘stupid’s and four forms of ‘dumb’; A bit of sarcasm; Kate gets a bit mouthy & angry (she tries to work on it); Jealousy & some judging; Mentions of mean & snotty girls; A girl is slapped; A couple mentions of eating chickens; A few mentions of drugging a horse.

Sexual Content- Melissa calls Colt Kate’s boyfriend (which he’s not); A couple mentions of crushing on someone & not wanting to be his girlfriend.

My personal Rating- 
While Kate’s attitude bothered me, I was really glad she was trying to work on herself. I loved Tori and hope to see more of her in the future books and it was nice to learn more about Melissa. A fun book with some good lessons. :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
