Two Equine Shorts by Sasscer Hill

If you like equine mystery stories, then this author is a must read! Sasscer Hill wrote Venomous and Pretty Fraudulent and both short stories will have you craving for more, so check out her other books.

Both have a female protagonist who happens upon bad guys trying to do bad things in an equine setting. Since they are short, I won't give the tales away. The author not only gives a realistic horsey background, but also writes clearly with excellent descriptions, characters and dialog.

Enjoy the ride, however brief, and then read her novels!

I read the Kindle version of Yellow Flash by Peter Wilben during my lunch breaks - found myself looking forward to the time to catch up on the adventures of Joe Grace!

In this one he investigates the death of a famous racehorse for a friend. This exciting tale leads the reader into not only an insurance scam, but a conspiracy with roots back to the Nazi regime.

Wilben knows his horses, shares interesting history details and spins a yarn that will keep the reader guessing. Ride on Joe Grace!
