A young woman searches for a killer to prove her and her best friend's innocence in the fascinating amateur sleuth mystery, Horses and Corpses (Cody Costin Cozy Mystery: Book 3) by Sharyn Bradford Lunn. After returning from a day of riding with her new BFF, Carla, Cody can't find Dan, the Hale Ranch's stable hand. While caring for the horses themselves, Cody and Carla are shocked to discover Dan's body in one of the horse's stalls, with a pitchfork protruding from his chest. When the detective assigned to the case starts questioning them, Cody and Carla realize they are suspects. Already nosy by nature, Cody isn't going to let the mystery behind Dan's death lie dormant. Despite her parents' and the detective's caution to leave the case alone, Cody starts investigating everyone who had contact with Dan. As Cody delves into the backgrounds of those relevant to Dan, she uncovers some shocking secrets. Can Cody relay them to the police before the killer stops her? Or is she already too late?
Horses and Corpses by Sharyn Bradford Lunn is a sensational murder mystery. Set against the mountains of Colorado, the charming and intimate backdrop is the ideal foil for a gruesome murder. Laced with intrigue, a little misdirection, and a hint of suspense, the story captures the reader's imagination. With her attitude, Cody's character is engaging and likable. I appreciated her concern for her friends, family members, and those in need. These aspects are commendable and only made me like her more. Although the third in the series, this book does very well as a standalone. Light and entertaining, this enchanting novel will charm and delight those who enjoy cozy mysteries.
