    I really enjoyed it!

    This is the second book in the series and I quite enjoyed it. I have not read the first one, and it may have been a bit helpful, but I was able to enjoy this book. (I will be reading the first one.) I found the characters entertaining and the book barn was an interesting idea. The whodunit was well written and I look forward to reading more in the series. I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    A Reference to Murder by Kym Roberts

    The second book in Kym Robert's Book Barn Mystery series, A REFERENCE TO MURDER, is about danger and intrigue in a quirky and delightful small town. The heroine, Charli Rae Warren... or Princess, as most of the town calls her no matter how many times she asks them not to, is back in town to run her family's business, The Book Barn Princess. Charli shares her nickname and her apartment above the shop with her father's very pampered pet armadillo. Charli's best friend is Scarlett, who owns the local hair salon which is conveniently right next door to the Book Barn. Scarlett has a thing for bull riders, specifically Dalton Hibbs. Dalton just happens to be the younger brother of Wyatt Hibbs, also a bull rider, but he's been missing for the past seven years. The town is also home to a retirement ranch of sorts for rodeo cowboys no longer able to ride the circuit, due to injury or age. The ranch hosts a large annual rodeo as a fundraiser for expenses and the whole town does their part. The Cowboys that will be competing are in town to prepare and to help with promotion for the event. When Dalton goes missing, just like his brother had, everyone is looking at Scarlett. Charli can't have that so rather than wait for the Sheriff to clear her friend's name she starts investigating on her own. A Reference to Murder is a well written mystery with plenty of danger and suspense as Charli and her friends get their selves into all kinds of trouble while trying to solve the crime. There's also plenty of humor, loveable characters, and a little romance. Charli's habit of finding (or causing) trouble wherever she goes has more than one man completely frustrated with how to handle her... but also more than one who'd be more than happy to give it a shot if only Charli would notice. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait for more Book Barn Princess mysteries. 4.5 stars ~Downloaded a copy from NetGalley. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

    Cowboy kerfuffles for Charli!

    Charli Rae is back! She has settled back into the nuttiness that is Hazel Rock. She is still wondering why she cares what Cade gets up to, when he has ignored her for months. Then there is Mateo, a man who makes a brown cop uniform look good! He seems to be interested in her but at the same time is keeping his distance. So at the moment the only man in her life is her dad. He helps around the store, helps with the craft classes and generally makes her life easier. The Cowboy Ranch Invitational is a big deal to the town and a much needed way to raise funds for a local charity. When Scarlett takes up with Dalton, one of the rising stars, she sets the town gossips jaws wagging. But not as much as they do when Dalton goes missing, just like his brother did after being seen with Scarlet several years before! Charli is quick to defend Scarlett and sets out to find Dalton and tear him a new one for what he has done to Scarlett. But has he really vanished? Is he hiding out? Is it a media stunt? As the story unfurls we learn that not every one is what they seem. Charli also seems to find herself with another potential beau to muddy the romantic pool further! I love this series so hard! Princess the armadillo is such a character herself! Eve's gate continues to weed out the bad eggs and Hazel Rock, population 2000 odd souls continues to rack up the dead bodies! Charli is in such a quandary over her love life, she just can't seem to decide what and who she wants. One of my favourite scenes is near the end of the book where 3 certain clowns entertain Charli and the masses. I just loved that even though they may have different opinions on what Charli means to them and how she fits in their lives, they are willing to work together to keep her happy, safe and cherished! I'm dreading the wait for book 3!!
