I enjoyed this sequel to "Something Most Deadly". I really enjoy the characters that Ann has created -- from Madeline, her best friend; to the police Detective "Westy"; the butler, William; Sam, the barn manager; Reggie, who has been at Springhill forever; Dylan, head groom; and of course Brian Canaday and his daughter Olivia. I love the characters together and how they pull together to run the estate and keep Jane safe. It was an enjoyable read to continue learning more about all of them.
The one "con" I have, is that I find the author a bit "wordy" (in this book and also "Something Most Deadly"). I feel like the author took a writing class where they spent a lot of time describing things in minute detail. I would just skip over whole pages because I wanted the mystery to keep unfolding, and I didn't really care about all the details of someone's dress.
And being a dressage person, I would have loved to continue more of the horse details in the book. But the story is moving away from the stable.
It was a very good book, and I would recommend.
