Tommi, Zara, and Kate are all elite riders on the A Circuit. Tommi, the billionaire heiress, is training a young horse to prove she can make horses a real career. But when her new beau, Alex, convinces her to skip a horse show to party in the Hamptons, the results could be disastrous. Zara, the celebutante wild child, is finally taking her riding seriously. Until the new “nanny” her dad hires threatens to upstage Zara’s party girl status. Then there’s Kate. She doesn’t have money to burn like the others, but she does have Fitz, the barn’s resident hot guy. But when the pressure of being a working student builds, Kate’s perfectionist tendencies threaten to get in the way of her relationship and her riding.
I enjoyed the first book in this series, The A Circuit, but I wasn’t absolutely blown away by it. My Favorite Mistake by Georgina Bloomberg and Catherine Hapka was everything I had been hoping to find in book 1 and more. I instantly was caught up in the story, and was so bummed when it had ended.
I really just love the horse showing world in these books. In The A Circuit, I was a bit lost, not sure of some of terminology people used, but by the end, I had gotten it all down. This made getting into the story and completely understanding what was going on so much easier in My Favorite Mistake.
The plot was a lot of fun. I felt like the plot of My Favorite Mistake had a bigger focus around friendship, and that was really nice to see. There are some new relationships that I am curious to see how they will pan out in future books.
I really love the characters in this series. Kate and Tommi remain my two favorite characters of the books. They are both such goodhearted people and a ton of fun! It was nice to see more of some of the other characters, as well as a different side of some, like Zara. I wasn’t a fan of her in The A Circuit, but My Favorite Mistake really showcased another side of her.
I simply cannot wait for the next book in the series now. This installment was so much fun to read, and I loved hearing more from the wonderful characters.
I would really recommend My Favorite Mistake to anyone looking for a great story and a fast read. I am very excited to see more from this dynamic duo!
