A perfect mix of mystery, humour, horses and Tennessee charm makes for an enjoyable light read. I enjoyed curling up on the sofa in the company of Cat and her friends.

HASH(0x9a6293d8) out of 5 stars Mystery Suspense Horses and Hot Chocolate! 7 Sept. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just finished THE OPIUM EQUATION; A Cat Enright Mystery. This is a great read for those who love mysteries, horses, and unusual characters! Anyone who has spent time in a small town, Nashville, and/or the horse world knows they are likely to run into some interesting characters with interesting lives and, more importantly, colorful pasts.

Lisa Wysocky doesn't disappoint with this yarn of mystery and, ultimately, suspense. Even the horses have unusual personalities and anyone who knows horses, knows this to be true!

Wysocky tells the story in a manner that is much like a long letter filled with news and color, describing the events of her life. Written with a natural first person cadence and pace, you learn not only what the heroin does but what she is thinking and how she reflects on her actions. Are they deep, complicated, or highly intellectual thoughts? No! They are the sort of thoughts the reader could imagine having if placed in the same situation. That is what makes the story feel so genuine despite some of the strange events that occur.

Do we gain deep insights into all of the characters? No! We only learn about the ones who really matter to the story. The others are likely to take center stage in future Cat Enright Mysteries. We just get a taste of them now, knowing there is much more to learn just below the surface. I am anxious to see who we find in the middle of the next mess!

I read some of the other reviews posted here and a few were negative. No book is for everyone but if you are looking for a light and entertaining mystery that includes horses, unusual (yet believable) characters, and a heroine who is an authentic horsewomen with less than perfect characteristics (not some dolled up Hollywood version) then this is the book for you.
PS: If you like chocolate and good southern comfort food, prepare yourself for a hankering.
PPS: If you ever thought your pet was psychic, you might be right!

HASH(0x9a98cdc8) out of 5 stars No mistakes with the horses 11 Sept. 2012
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a lifetime horse person, any book with a plot framework set around horses and horse people has to be accurate or I will not continue, regardless of how good it is otherwise. This book makes no mistakes in the equine world, not even minor ones.

Overall, a very good first attempt at fiction/mystery and I think the series will get stronger. Having lived in KY for the last 12 years I am now much more familiar with the people and the region in which the book is set and find that much more interesting now than I would have as a MT native. A very good sense of the countryside and the people and attitudes. The plot revolves around actions within a family that go back to Civil War days and after living in this area, it is quite believable.

The characters were well developed, including the supporting cast and I particularly liked the young boy and the deputy. I did feel there were some inconsistencies with the main character. For a business woman, in the very tough business of professional training, she seemed more tentative than I would expect as well as being very impulsive. I also felt she was too easily pulled away from her duties and work at the barn. With several of the scenarios she was away from the barn, leaving horses in training unridden, which is not too likely too happen in a successful show barn. This was the only caveat I had with the equine involvement of the book and pretty minor.

The storyline moved well, held together and only required a couple of my dreaded "Bluebeard syndrome" moments, the 'don't open that door whatever you do' scenes. Overall, I'm looking forward to the next of the series.
HASH(0x9a98cccc) out of 5 stars A Fun Equine Mystery 2 Aug. 2013
By Valerie A. Ormond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Opium Equation reminded me of a Janet Evanovich novel, and as a huge Janet Evanovich fan, I loved this book. I liked the quirky characters, interesting plot, and humor all wrapped up in a good story. Lisa Wysocky interspersed serious situations with light moments, which made for an enjoyable read. I particularly liked her flawed characters and the voice of Cat Enright, from whose point of view the story is told.
The author included enough horse information to inform non-horse people without overwhelming them, and enough unique horse information to interest horse people as well.
I look forward to more books in the Cat Enright mystery series and hope to see many of the same characters again!

I was hooked from the first paragraph. The story was very well written, and the story line was captivating. I am looking forward to sharing in more of Cat's adventures. I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially for the horse enthusiast.

HASH(0x9ace987c) out of 5 stars Opium Equation - Great formula! 12 Sept. 2012
By MaryAnn Myers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am not a mystery reader, particularly hard-boiled murder mysteries with even a remote reference to violence and gore. Fortunately since I am a horse person and came across Opium Equation by the equestrian route, was assured it was mild mannered - I settled back and started reading. Lots of facts are thrown at you in this story by way of the not always so wise amateur 29 year-old heroine sleuth by the name of Cat. At the end of the story, there is a follow up update on the characters, and also questions what could and would spark discussion at a book group. One question asks, "If you met Cat in person, would she be someone you would like as a friend? If so, why?" Well, I think I would, but being the mother of a daughter in that general age range, I'd be worried from sunup to sundown what she was up to next. Her heart is in the right place, no doubt, but think think think, Cat...before you put your life in danger next time. Alas, but this is a murder mystery, and I have a feeling, since this is going to be a series, she wouldn't be listening to me at all. She'll be off putting her own life in danger again to solve the crime. If I were a missing person, would I want her out there trying to find me? You bet!!
