This is a wonderfully warm, witty, cosy and gripping mystery. Three sisters fight for the survival of their equine farm. Just as the equine conference is about to start, which the sisters have high hopes for, an accident occurs that the ladies don’t think was just that, but murder.
The banter between the sisters, the fragile and strong sides to their characters makes the amateur sleuths lovable, relatable and very entertaining.
They encounter a lot of quirly characters at the equine symposium as you can imagine, making this an often hilarious and hugely entertaining read. There’s horses, secrets, romance, murder and weight loss devices. Fisher’s humour is brilliant and if you like a good laugh then this murder mystery is for you.
Abby, Dodie, and Clara Foster, three 60-something sisters, are astonished to learn they’ve inherited Grizzly Gulch, a dude ranch in the Alberta Foothills. Facing financial ruin, they host a week-long horse breeding symposium to attract more guests.
Hours into the symposium, a cowboy’s sudden death appears accidental. When the Mounties dismiss Abby’s notion of murder, she convinces Dodie and Zeke, their hot barn manager, to conduct a covert investigation without alerting their guests. Problem is, the quirky guests are their main suspects.
Chaos ensues when the senior sleuths tangle with one seriously amorous gelding (yes, it happens), a runaway stud, dwarf goats and their guard llama, a cranky stallion, drug abuse, deceit, and more danger. It doesn’t help that late-life romance ups the ante.
