    I enjoy these books for light reading and appreciate that all the equine terminology is correctly used. My only complaint is the redundancies found in throughout the series- the main character solves the same crime over and over. The actual mystery part of the story is completely lacking, so if you’re looking for a good “whodunit” this is not the series for you. Rather it is a good way to pass time with scenic descriptions of fox hunting and life in rural central VA.

    First I have to admit to a Rita Mae Brown bias; I love her work. However, this is just not up to par. The story, not really a mystery, barely a novel, goes off on far too many side excursions with fox hunt stories, hunt clothes, brand names to buy, hoof care for horses, etc. etc. A real yawn if you aren't a "Master" of the hunt.As usual, Brown manages to work in a few things to annoy everyone (a fact that usually has me chuckling); i.e., animals are superior to people, biracial sexual encounters between senior citizens, her characters opinions on some people just being 'born bad'etc.)Her editor was asleep a the wheel this time. With about 100 less pages this could have been a good book, As is, Brown's fans will be disappointed. Best advice: If you (like me) MUST read anything she writes, borrow it - don't buy. Save your money for saddle soap.

    I am listening to the CD audio version of this book. I am very disappointed. The author is reading her book and she has made several mistakes, garbled words and begun over. I thought errors were edited out. I can hear the pages being turned as she reads and on occasion she seems to running out of breath. Didn't she take a break?, ever? I am on disc 7 and have heard more about foxes, hunting dogs and fox hunt detail than the average person would want to hear in their lifetime. This story needs more plot and less hunting detail.

    The mystery in this book could have been regulated to a chapter. It probably covered 20 pages in total. Neither the murderer nor the victims were the center of the book, both were handled very much as afterthoughts. The resolution came abruptly, in a few pages of rather ridiculous action, after hundreds of pages of the author's sermonizing. It was as if she realized she was getting to the end of the page count and she better take a breather from the lecturing and get that murderer caught fast.I like horses and dogs, and I can tolerate the anthropomorphised animals up to a point. I don't even mind if the mystery is skimped a bit in favor of the setting - cozy mysteries often do dwell more on characters and setting than mystery. But this was not even a cozy mystery, more of a treatise on Brown's thoughts on morals, drugs, literacy, sexual orientation, racial relations, adultery, etc, ad nauseum. A lot of it I found ignorant and naive. I get that perhaps Brown feels some guilt about her elite foxhunting setting, but the attempt to balance it by a lot of moral sermonizing was deadly in a fictional mystery. Foxhunting 35%, sermonizing 45%, mystery 20%.

    I'm gradually working my way through Brown's foxhunting series. This one is the 3rd in the series and has been my least favorite so far. The plot unfolded very slowing, and the ending was slightly confusing. That said, this is still a well-written book that kept my attention - it was just not as good as the first two. I will absolutely keep reading through - already have the 4th in hand and ready to go! As others mentioned as well, the synopsis on the book jacket is completely wrong, so don't go by it!!

    I am a fan of Rita Mae Brown, but I was very confused when I read the inside cover and then read the book! Who was in charge of writing the inside cover summary. They need to be reassigned, as they did not read the book well, or new glasses. NO joke, there was a LARGE disconnect between the two. The story was a bit heavy with foxhunting and clothing. Please give me a story next time.

    I enjoy reading Rita Mae Brown, but this one was a let down. Starting with the completely inaccurate description of the book (I'll say no more about the weak story) to the over emphasis on fox hunting, this book is just a thin story with alot of padding. Rita Mae, you really could do much better....

    Others have written this book is disappointing because the book description and inside flap blurb don't match the story. This is the least of the novel's problems! I have to preface my review by stating that I'm horse owner, all-around animal lover, and have read all of Rita Mae's work. I'm a big fan.In the case of this novel, I am baffled that her editor didn't ask her to go back to the drawing board, and I wondered if a crazed fan stole an early rough draft of the book from her desk drawer and somehow got it published on the sly. More bothersome than the fact that foxhunting triva seems to eclipse the mystery storyline is the tendency for Brown to use the novel as vehicle for two things: her opinions on human nature, and a "how-to" manual for rural life. It just got so tedious! Lists of brands her characters prefer, how to fix a hole if a dog digs under the fence, how the Ford F350 Dually handles for everyday driving (she writes about those friggin' trucks in every novel. Enough, please!), how to interpret a foxhound pedigree--geeeeez.The characters aren't interesting or fully developed, and this seems like unedited stream-of-consciousness rather than a well-crafted tale--which is what Brown usually produces. I'll continue to buy her work, and sure hope this one is the exception.
