The third book in the Saddle Island series. From the author of the widely successful Mustang Mountain series comes a third adventure in the new and exciting Saddle Island series. Set on the wild and windswept landscape of Nova Scotia`s eastern shore, Race to the Rescue finds heroine Kelsie MacKay receiving an urgent phone call. She is asked to rescue a racehorse named Gem, a beautiful three-year-old filly. Kelsie and her brother Andy have started school in Dark Cove, and -- if they can get their dad to like the place or can find him a job -- it looks like they might actually get to live in Nova Scotia permanently. Meanwhile, there`s a stranger lurking on Saddle Island, someone who visits the horses when nobody else is around. He seems to take a special interest in Gem. And there are weird lights out at sea on a dark night. What`s going on? Kelsie and Andy find out -- and solve the mystery.
