A "Sweet" Equine Mystery
Un-Neigh-Borly Behavior by Cheryl Rhodes should come with a warning: Reader may crave chocolate when reading! The main character, DeeDee, seems to be obsessed with any desert and at a fundraiser, stocks up on homemade delights. Made my mouth water and think about baking some brownies!
DeeDee and her husband, Grant, run a growing Standardbred stable in an equine community. While he is pondering a downsize of their operation, she is drawn into the neighbors' happenings. Namely, the handsome new barn manager next door who ends up dead on a trail and DeeDee is a suspect.
Unlike the author's other two novels I've reviewed, this one is more mystery than romance - but a nice touch is the romantic scenes between DeeDee and Grant.
If you love to read equine novels, Cheryl Rhodes is one author you must have in your library!
