Jemma Chase, a trail guide at her parents' guest ranch, finds herself at the center of mysterious goings-on, beginning with some poisoned dogs. And when a body is discovered on the trail one day, Jemma is also front and center in this mystery, and snaps photos of the crime scene. The detective who first showed up to question her about the dog poisoning is not too keen on her interests, however, and, in many ways, seems antagonistic.
Jemma is an intriguing character with a number of unconventional talents, like carpentry, photography, and now a thirst for Crime Scene Investigating. But will her eagerness to help solve the crimes in the area put her at risk?
Will the conflicts between Detective Tucker and Jemma lead to trouble? What will turn things around for Jemma in her quest for answers? And, amongst all the possible suspects, who will turn out to be the perpetrator?
From the beginning I enjoyed the characters, the settings, as well as the red herrings that kept me from fully guessing the perpetrator. I liked the homey Southern dialogue that made me feel as if I were a guest at the ranch. I'm eager to read more about these characters. Five stars.
Jemma Chase returned home to escape from the backlash of guilt-by-association. She does carpentry and helps her parents with Blue Falls Ranch. The hills and craigs of Appalachia are the perfect setting for a trail-riding adventure, though the current guests didn't expect murder as their vacation experience.
Detective Tucker gets under Gemma's skin when he hauls her in for questions about local dogs being poisoned while the ones at BFR are left unharmed. She sets out to discover who killed the man Brandy (her mare) found off the trail. Someone does not want Jenna poking around in affairs that do not concern her and she makes an easy mark with her patterned behavior.
Sparks fly between Jenna and Tucker to see who is be best man/woman detective. I know a librarian who loves trail riding and mysteries that I'll allert to a fun read.
The more I read, however, the more I enjoyed the book. Jemma, the central character is strong and capable, but vulnerable too. I liked the relationship between Jemma and Tucker, the detective. It was a little predictable, but I still found myself rooting for them to get together.
The various sub-plots (dog poisonings, mail theft, petty theft, day-to-day ranch activities) held my interest and kept me guessing until the end. I wasn't aware this was a series until I went looking, but I'm heartened to see there are at least a few more to go. This is not a series I'd re-read (my personal standard), but it's thoroughly enjoyable and worth reading once.
My Kindle books are my 'money in the bank' saved for this winter's weather and the possibility of being snowed in for weeks at a time. Ditto for the rainy, stuck indoors weather the rest of the year.
However, I will send a review as soon as I read the book. And I also want to say bless you Amazon for the Kindle in all its forms.
Keep an eye out for the soon to be read and critiqued "Murder at Blue Falls" Stay tuned for more info from my much love mountain.
A murder, Romance, Mystery and Love Story all packed into one great book!Jemma comes home and becomes a wonderful guide, craftsman and turns photographer after finding a body and hooks up with a Detective and finds love! A must read for everyone and I'm looking for follow up books to read relating to these people in this story. There are others and I've found some of them. I can't wait to read more! Thank You Maggie Bishop.
