    Who cares about a dead horse Well, I didn t think I would at first Then Carole Beers pulled me into a world of horse shows with her vivid characters Pepper and Tulip, I continually wait for the next shoe to fall and when it did, I was relieved Strangely enough, one of the best mysteries I ve read where no humans got killed Carole Beers breathes life in the way of horses that is truly fascinating I wouldn t normally read a story like this but I m sure glad I didn t miss it.
