Ann Self fulfills the promise of SOMETHING MOST DEADLY with the sequel, SOMETHING VERY GHOSTLY. The story takes up right where the first one left off and the tension doesn't falter. Jane is haunted by the ghost of her former employer while trying to assume the stewardship of the horse farm and its additions.
She and Brian are working to find themselves in a new relationship that is based on love and trust while moving toward each other across all the lines of class and privilage.
Jane must also forge new working relationships with former buddies and comrades as she becomes 'the boss.' This work is never easy and becomes much more difficult as it becomes obvious someone is determined to kill her.
This one will keep the pages turning or you thumb popping to following the swift action.
Nash Black, author of SANDPRINTS OF DEATH.

I thought the book was a great mystery and will read more of this author. Sometimes, though, the problem with mysteries is that there is too much wordage used in order to make it long enough to sell. I would rather have it get to the point earlier without all the wordiness.

I really enjoyed this second book in the series. I like the characters, I think for the most part they are very solid. I would have liked to have seen more of the horse aspect, that part got a little lost, but perhaps this book is setting us for the third. I am anxiously awaiting it's release. I'd like to see also a little more depth into more of the characters...William, for instance, I'm sure has a wonderful tale to tell of his schooling to be a butler and perhaps other families he's worked for. Sam has the track to reflect on, and Reggie, there's a great person to discover. We know so little about him, or the wonderful horses he has cared for at Springhill. So, Ann Self, keep 'em coming. You're onto something here.

I enjoyed this sequel to "Something Most Deadly". I really enjoy the characters that Ann has created -- from Madeline, her best friend; to the police Detective "Westy"; the butler, William; Sam, the barn manager; Reggie, who has been at Springhill forever; Dylan, head groom; and of course Brian Canaday and his daughter Olivia. I love the characters together and how they pull together to run the estate and keep Jane safe. It was an enjoyable read to continue learning more about all of them.

The one "con" I have, is that I find the author a bit "wordy" (in this book and also "Something Most Deadly"). I feel like the author took a writing class where they spent a lot of time describing things in minute detail. I would just skip over whole pages because I wanted the mystery to keep unfolding, and I didn't really care about all the details of someone's dress.

And being a dressage person, I would have loved to continue more of the horse details in the book. But the story is moving away from the stable.

It was a very good book, and I would recommend.

As is sadly often the case, not as good as the first one. A whole lot of telling goin on, not a lot of showing--either action-wise or horses. I liked the added mystery of Julia and the history of the house. This time the bad guy was obvious, and due to the house, so was a lot of the method to the madness, so to speak. Still looking forward to the third in the series, though. I've grown quite fond of the characters.

On a side note, I read mostly on my Kindle now. The one thing I've noticed fairly consistently with most of the Kindle books is that they seem to have a lot of typos, missing or added words in a sentence, unclear scene changes, missing punctuation (especially in quotes) etc. In a lot of them (and especially this one) it felt like I was reading a rough draft, and I always felt they needed better editors. Found out why--there was an admonition from the author to her "readers" to not spill the beans on some of the plot points. It dawned on me she was talking about her pool of readers/editors before final publication, and/or advanced reader copies. SO, I was right. A rough draft. To the editors: I honestly hope this was an example of work before you got to it rather than after. to the author: If this is the work after it was edited and not before, you need better editors (like me).
