Synopsis from Goodreads: After horse trainer and rancher Annie Carson visits a feedlot in eastern Washington, she is determined to save as many horses from slaughter as possible before hightailing it back home--until she discovers the sleazy owner seemingly trampled in his corral. With the fate of the feedlot herd in her hands, Annie must navigate unfamiliar territory while trying to track down a killer and solve an increasingly tangled mystery. But unfortunately for Annie, returning to the Olympic Peninsula alive will be trickier than she ever imagined.
My Review: Not only is this series set near where I live, it is also deeply rooted in the horse world, of which I am a part of. For those reasons this series is special to me. I love reading little bits about the area I live in and I enjoy all of the horses that are included in the story. That being said, this book was a little bit hard to read at parts. The story centers around two feedlot owners and an attempt to rescue horses from slaughter. I generally read cozy mysteries to escape reality and this was a little too real for me. That being said, it was still a really good book. The premise of the feed lot allowed for a new setting and new characters that fit into the series nicely. I enjoyed the plot and the new characters. The mystery was interesting though I didn’t really agree with some of the characters motivations. Overall I am looking forward to the next book in the series!
