Book Description

For a limited time fans of the Michaela Bancroft Mysteries can receive the first three books together for one great low price on your Kindle!

In SADDLED WITH TROUBLE Horse trainer Michaela Bancroft has worked hard to make it in the man's world of training and showing quarter horses. After her husband leaves her for a twenty-two-year-old rodeo queen, she's left with a broken heart and mounting debts. Then death strikes and Michaela is suddenly...Saddled With Trouble. Michaela is trying to rein in her life when she finds her Uncle Lou murdered in his prize stallion's stall. As she fends off debt collectors--and her ex-husband's renewed interest in her--Michaela begins to suspect that the killer may be someone close to her. When she's nearly run off the road the night after her uncle's funeral, Michaela is convinced she's on the fast track to becoming the next victim.

Michaela’s adventures continue in DEATH REINS IN as Michaela is headed out for a day at the Quarter Horse Races with her dear friend Audrey Pratt. However, a fun day under the Southern California blue skies turns dark and gloomy rather fast, when Audrey reveals that her brother (racetrack veterinarian) Bob Pratt has been missing for a few days. Michaela suspects that Bob may be out on a binder and hopes that isn't so, as Audrey has recently put her brother through rehab. But when Audrey winds up murdered at the races, out on the back forty lot next to the parked horse trailers, Michaela suspects that Bob's disappearance and Audrey's murder are related. She is determined to find out who did this horrible thing to her friend and locate Audrey's missing brother.

In the third segment in this mystery series TACKED TO DEATH A new tack shop and a gala polo match are reasons to celebrate for Michaela-until equestrian Sterling Tabor is found clubbed to death with a polo mallet. Worse yet, suspicion falls on Michaela... The weapon belongs to Michaela, her prints are all over it, and rumors of her alleged affair with the victim aren't helping. With her boyfriend Detective Jude Davis out of town, Michaela doesn't stand a chance of proving her innocence and clearing her name unless she delves into Tabor's mysterious life-and death-on her own. But in unearthing a real suspect and a motive, she discovers a deadly past. One that sends the killer after Michaela herself.

Praise for The Michaela Bancroft Series:

“Filled with good murder suspects along with enough twists and turns allowing the reader to guess and guess again throughout the novel.”

“So well written…There are so many wonderful red herrings that it will keep you guessing until the end. Terrific plot and characters really add to the reading experience. I highly recommend this book.”—The Best Reviews

“A pleasant and fast read. The characters are likeable and the setting is interesting. I’m looking forward to her next Michaela Bancroft mystery…recommended.”—Armchair Interviews

5.0 out of 5 stars Great series March 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great series. I hadn't heard of A.K. Alexander (aka Michelle Scott) until I got my Kindle a couple of weeks ago. Her books were some of the ones that Amazon recommended for me so I decided to try them. I got all three books in the series for $3.99 so I figured it couldn't really hurt if I didn't like them. I really enjoyed this series and look forward to the 4th book coming out. The main character, Michaela Bancroft, is very unlucky when it comes to finding dead bodies. It is very well written (except for a couple of typos and some extra words where they don't belong). I look forward to the 4th book coming out. I would most certainly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good who dunnit.

You don't often read a story about a horsewoman and a neat mystery all in a fun and mostly clean book. I really enjoyed all three of the stories and hope for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps You On Your Toes and Guessing Til The End April 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This really reminds me of the movie, "The Game" with Michael Douglas in it. WOW, it is a very good series about Ethan and Michaela. A perfect book for the horse lover. It is full of action, surprises, some shockers and Michaela always reaches the finish line and love always fixes things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable! July 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These 3 stories are very well written and enjoyable. I was so into the stories, I hated to put my kindle down. It was easy to put yourself into the story and feel like Michaela wasn't just a character in a story, but a friend. The stories are easy to follow and flow beautifully from 1 book into the next. Love it!!!

Easy read, entertaining, not riveting. Good summer read for teenagers. 3 books for the price of one, so not a bad deal.

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive text
Story line was "everyone is a suspect" to extreme! Not enough depth of character, no creative thinking, just lots of overstating why everyone was capable of murder.
