    sonora is called to investigate after a young girl joelle and the horse she is riding go missing - but which was the target? together with her partner sam they unearth a crime within the horse industry that an undercover agent is trying to break plus joelle's mysterious familythen they discover a body ..... sonora is well depicted and her interaction with the other characters is excellent - truthful and funny. plus the troubles of being a hardworking single mother in truth i would give this 3.5 stars as there were too many loopholes - why assume the horse described as missing was that joelle was riding? nobody saw her plus the mare was heavily pregnant when truck found in barn no mention was made of damage from smashing fence before questioning occupants y no look further into dixon's past immediately after the event. he was a prime suspect. also check marriage and birth certificates after reading joelle's diaries no follow up with boyfriendpossibility of fingerprints on finger bandage buy a horse? come on - with all the relevant costs - stabling, food, insurance, vet etc. when she was struggling with money already. plus she could not ride bev

    This is the second mystery by Lynn Hightower I've read. It's been much too long between books. I'm so impressed with her story-telling. I liked the main characters very much; Detectives Sonora Blake and her partner, Sam. They have a great relationship, which seems very natural, the dialogue very smooth. Sonora is a single mother, also raising two teenage children. While they don't play a great part in the story, they do add to Sonora's character. The mystery is very interesting, one of the more different ones I've read. And the resolution is extremely well-plotted and most interesting to read. I like Hightowers writing style and enjoyed the story very much. I'll definitely be getting more of her stories. Highly recommended.

    PROTAGONIST: Sonora Blair, homicide detectiveSETTING: Cincinnati, OHSERIES: #3 of 4RATING: 3.25WHY: Fifteen-year-old Joelle Chauncey and the horse she was riding have disappeared. Cincinnati police detective Sonora Blair and her partner, Sam, begin to investigate and find a lot going on in the horse selling world that you'd rather not know about. I had mixed feelings about this book (and the series). On the one hand, the dialog is excellent and the plot engaging. But Blair is very hard on other people, and not very likeable. Her worst failing in my eyes is that she always makes her job her first priority, and she frequently neglects her 2 teenagers as a result.

    This was my first experience reading Hightower. I thought the plotline had an original feel to it in a location that isn't common. That was a big plus for me. That said, I had a hard time connecting with most of the main characters. Sonora Blair came off as so impulsive and lacking of self restraint, it just seems hard to see her cracking a crime.

    This book made me start looking for others by this author-- her books were hard to find, but great reads! I love her character of a single mom detective and how she manages (or not) her private life with her professional one. Even after all these years I believe her major characters name was Sonora or something like that and I wish she would write more using this detective!

    Really enjoyed this book - hard to put down. Policewoman Sonora who is a single mother but a policewoman first ends up solving a murder of a 15 year old girl. Book has twists and turns as you follow her investigation.

    When I was in high school in Lexington, one of my best friends was the author's daughter. My copy of this book bears the inscription, "to my adopted son, read with the lights out and the doors locked. -Lynn 1998"

    Apparently I liked this book so much I am currently reading it again! I wished this author hadn't stopped writing. I liked both of her series, this one with Sonora Blair and her other series with Lena Padgett.

    Sonora Blair is an interesting character. I could relate to all her issues as a working mom and I found that part to be interesting. I am not sure that her detecting was all that hot, but the story was good. I listened to Anna Fields read this and she is an excellent narrator.
