Horsing Around with Murder by Maureen Fisher is Book 1 of the Senior Sleuth Mystery Series. Abby Foster and her two sisters inherited a dude ranch and now they are in financial trouble. Abby is scared of horses but hosting a horse-breeding symposium is their only chance of success; they didn’t expect a dead body to be part of the deal though. Was it an accident? The sisters don’t think so and, enlisting the help of Zeke, a cowboy from the ranch, they set off on an investigation. The biggest problem is that all their symposium guests are suspects. Absolute chaos is set to ensue when the golden girls run up against a gamut of horses, a spitting llama, and pygmy goats, not to mention a dark web of lies, deceit, and drugs, placing everyone in even more danger. Can the ladies solve the crime and will Abby learn to love horses?

Horsing Around with Murder: A Senior Sleuth Mystery Book 1 by Maureen Fisher is one of the funniest mystery stories I have read in a long time. With laugh-out-loud comedy, loads of hilarious action and some of the coolest characters ever written, this book really does have it all. The story grabbed me from the very first page and moved at a quick but steady pace all the way through. The characters are simply marvelous; very relatable, fun, quirky, and, more importantly, likable and real. With so many suspects, it was hard to figure out whodunnit and the story just keeps you guessing all the way through. A fabulous story, a fun adventure with a little bit of senior romance to sweeten the deal, and plenty of laughs along the way. Highly recommended read.
