From the publisher of Murder in the Family
The past comes back seeking vengeance. To save her family and friends, Novice PI Eve Appel, pregnant with her second child, must outwit the bad guys in a final act of desperation, risking her life and that of the man she’s asked to help her, her mob boss friend, Nappi.
No neighs about it, for those who love reading equestrian-centric mysteries, Murder in the Family is a winner. There’s lots going on in the horse world and Eve is having to juggle those needs with those of finding her old mob boss friend. I found this to be an entertaining read overall. Unfortunately, I found the dialogue to get a bit repetitive and Eve to be a abrasive at times, but other than that the plotting was good, which kept the pace moving.
While this felt like less of a mystery and more of a soft thriller, it follows the cozy mystery conventions about language, sex, and violence. there are complications in Eve’s life that provide a secondary story in addition to the mystery itself. The story tension builds through to the end, and I wanted Eve to succeed in her personal life as well as in her PI business. I enjoyed the read and it kept me guessing throughout.
