Saddled with Trouble by Michele Scott

Review by Dawn Dowdle

Michaela Bancroft is a horse trainer in California.  Her husband is divorcing her for a younger woman with whom he had an affair.  To top it all off, Michaela finds her Uncle Lou murdered when he didn't show up for their breakfast meeting.  Who could have done such a thing? 

Soon Michaela is embroiled in finding the killer.  Plus her aunt asks her to look into a problem with the artificial insemination program her uncle was running for horses.   

Michaela isn't sure who to trust any more.  The more she looks into things, the more she realizes who had possible motives. 

Her father has gotten himself into big trouble with gambling.  Michaela works to help him get out of trouble without losing the family ranch. 

Can she figure out who killed her uncle without putting herself in danger? 

I really enjoyed this book.  You don't have to be a horse lover to enjoy it.  It is so well written.  It is a great cozy and you'll find yourself picking it back up constantly to finish it. 

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.
