  • Totally Enthralling!

    Another fine mystery from an author who knows how to create a puzzle! Belinda Sandford’s heart soars as she is first past the post on Butterfly Charm at her first big race; happiness turns to horror as a Steward’s Enquiry rules against her and the win goes to Alex Deacon, a rival. She thinks things can’t get any worse, until Alex’s body is found and she is under suspicion. Belinda’s mother, Diane, asks former detective turned publican Adam Hennessy for help in clearing her daughter’s name. Adam, in turn, ropes in Imogen Bishop, local hotelier and together they learn more about the racing world than they ever thought possible. But can they clear Belinda? It didn’t take very long for me to dredge up memories of the first in this series and I knew I was in for a great read! I know practically nothing about the racing world; it’s a long time since I read any Dick Francis books, but knowledge isn’t required to enjoy this fabulous mystery. Nothing is obvious; there are plenty of suspects and no end of people who ‘could’ have been involved in Alex’s demise. With personal relationships intertwined with the investigation, this is a gripping read with lots going on. Did I work out who did what to whom? Not a chance! It came as a complete surprise. Totally enthralling and enjoyable, this is a must read to lovers of good mysteries and one I’m happy to give 4.5*.

  • Good whodunit

    horses, racing, murder, murder-investigation, law-enforcement, family, friendship, small-town, ex-cop, England, pets, hotelier, rivalry***** It's been exactly a year since I read A Village Murder (which I didn't realize was book 1 of series). Nevertheless, no problem with the background and ongoing characters' stories. The publisher's blurb does a good job, the characters are all very well done, the sleuthing is a co-operative effort and moves at a good pace, and there are some really sneaky plot twists and red herrings in this foray into the racing world of the west country. I requested and received a temporary digital ARC of this book from Boldwood Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

  • Great murder mystery

    It was a great book I enjoyed it. Its not a dick Francis comparative. Its a good mystery surround a murder that happens to a female jockey and the villages ex policeman and 3 others solve the mystery. It reads well with a slight love story going through.

  • Too many cooks.

    I found it hard to keep the characters straight because there is no leading protagonist.

  • A Racing Murder

    Good read. The characters seem to fit well together. I was surprised about the ending. Had no clue about the murderer.
