Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Former vet Gail McCarthy, now a stay-at-home wife and mom, encounters trouble while she and her husband and their six-year-old son are vacationing in California's Sierra Nevada foothills in Crum's less than suspenseful 11th equine puzzler (after 2008's Chasing Cans). Soon after Gail and her family arrive at their friend Lonny Peterson's ranch, Martindale County deputy sheriff Bret Boncantini, a childhood friend of Gail's, arrests their host for the shooting murders of Lonny's girlfriend, Lorene Richardson, and Lorene's brother, Cole, who together ran the local livestock auction. Though Lonny's fingerprints are all over the murder weapon, Gail's positive he's innocent and sets out to prove it. Crum's easygoing approach to crime solving sometimes defies believability, but her solid knowledge of horses and the ranching life will appeal to horse-loving mystery fans who aren't expecting a plot worthy of Dick Francis.

Review

"If you haven't discovered Laura Crum yet, please jump at any chance to catch up on the series. The Gail McCarthy books are among my very favorite contemporary mysteries and Crum is, for my money, the successor to mystery giant Dick Francis."-- Ron Miller, author of Mystery! A Celebration

I guess you could call me a die hard fan of the old Laura Crum. I kept buying her books even after she entered her 'baby' phase and her writing took a way wrong turn. Well, this is it, this is the last Laura Crum book I will buy or borrow.

Possible spoilers: I couldn't finish this book. I struggled to read along while Gail and her obedient little husband planned a trip to visit Gail's old lover. I kept reading through the boring road trip to the lover's farm. I was still reading when Lover gave Gail a present of a horse. Shortly after they dragged Lover off to jail for murder, I gave up. The only thing that would have improved this book is if the killer came back and murdered Gail's whole family. That's how desperate I was for something interesting to happen. And that's how much I cared about the characters.

If it is an interesting cozy you are looking for, don't even consider this one. Try one of Mary Saums Thistle and Twigg series. Funny, great characters and interesting themes. For more mystery and excitement try Beverly Connor's Dianne Fallon mysteries.

Started reading the Laura Crumm books when they first came out and they just keep getting better and better. Going Gone is one of my favorites thus far. Even non horsey readers will like these mystery stories. Gail McCarthy is a down to earth vet, with a family of animals, husband, and son, and as you read the books, gets to be a real interesting person to the reader and makes you want more. Hope she keeps writting about Gail and her adventures in our beautiful California.

I enjoyed Laura Crum's earlier novels when Gail McCarthy was a working veterinarian. There is no sense of urgency in this book. Much of the visual imagery is pleasing and Sunny the horse is a great character but Crum drops the ball with Gail's old friends Lonny Peterson and Bret Boncantini. Plus I wasn't in the mood for Gail's little soap-box treatment of home schooling. I'm a teacher, enough said. Gail's husband, Blue Winter, is so laid back he's pretty much a non-character. The plot is intersting but not at all exciting. Overall, I was disappointed with this novel. This review may not be helpful if you've never read Crum before, but to veteran Crum readers, I'm interested in what you think.

Laura Crum is an AMAZING author! An equal to Sue Grafton with the added benefit of horses in the story lines. So if you love horses and mysteries these books are for you. You will be submersed in the life of Gail McCarthy, with her love of horses, wild and domestic animals and the California Coast in all it's splendor. Even this last book in the series leaves you content, with the feeling that life is wonderful when you really look at everything around you!

Gail might not be a vet any more but she's still curious and interested in justice. Now that her son is older and doesn't need her so much, she can concentrate on other things. She said she was home schooling but there was no evidence of that in the book. I liked the descriptions of the Sierras as well as the continuing home stories in Monterey. Sorry this is the second to last book of the series. I've liked them all. Started with the first and read through each. Thanks Laura, I've enjoyed the ride.

I have enjoyed all the Gail McCarthy books. Reading this story, like the plot itself, is like taking a leisurely vacation. It's a laid back visit to California, and camping with horses. My favorite part of this story is the introduction of Sunny, Gail's new horse. Like a weekend getaway, this book is a brief, pleasant diversion.
