Black Earth

“One leg of Bronte’s jeans caught fire and she staggered, dropping her precious show saddle from her shoulder. A flame shot up her back. She screamed and fell.”

There’s tension at Eden Glassie these holidays: Tori is torn between spending time with his two cousins, Morgan on the new four-wheeler bike that Uncle Ian has bought for the vineyard, and Bronte, who wants to ride horses and hates the bike.

Meanwhile, a series of strange and unpredictable grassfires have been springing up around the property. Is someone trying to sabotage Eden Glassie? Then comes the biggest fire, and Tori is faced with the unthinkable.

Following Deep Water and Stone Circle, this is the third exciting mystery in the Eden-Glassie Quartet.
