Wild Horses, Amy Pendino

What strings are attached to “easy money”?

Dani Holden has lived in small-town Crestview, Iowa, for almost two years, but she won’t be able to stay without a new source of income, especially now that she’s adopted an old racehorse.

Her good friend Donna introduces Dani to Jim, a trucker who’s become a regular at Susie’s Café, the town’s local meeting spot. He’s got an opportunity for Dani, a way for her to earn some “easy money.”

As she wrestles with the trucker’s offer, Dani learns some exciting news—former resident Lilly, now 80 years old and in poor health, thinks she’s located the child she gave up years ago. But time is running out: she may not make it through her diagnosis in time to meet him.

The shocking secrets Dani unearths around town and across the highways cause residents to second-guess the place and people they thought they knew. Vivid depictions of friendship, small-town customs, and rural scenery are a stark contrast to suspicious drug activity in the Crestview area and the treatment of food stock animals on the dusty roads that transect it.
