Jump in the saddle for a fun but bumpy ride!
Few will hire competitive rider, Viola Parker, since the famous jumper, Wastrel, crashed to his death with her aboard. Not only that, her attitude just landed her out of work…again. She can barely afford her whipped-cream-in-a-can addiction.
Now, before she’s thirty, she must keep a job for one year and receive a glowing letter of recommendation to get a surprise trust fund set up by her absentee parents. A trust fund that could represent freedom and independence—or might be worth nothing.
Vi accepts a position and moves from Long Island to Missouri thinking that keeping her mouth shut and her head down for one year will be easy.
