Like the first book in the series, it was an easy read - if you can forgive all the editing errors.

€7,04 or $9,34 is just too much for a badly edited book.

Engaging characters make up for a conclusion that isn't quite as narratively satisfying as it could be, and the solid, enjoyable writing is marred by the need for a thorough proofread. (Haflinger, not Halflinger, dammit!) On the whole, though, definitely enjoyable and I'm certainly looking forward to the next one.

Also, I'd let Merry Abbott look after my hypothetical horses - one of the few literary horsepeople who passes that test!

I do not care what price is on a book, if an author wishes to be taken seriously she MUST learn how to spell.
Other than that, I enjoyed the storyline and characters. Look forward to more in this series. Just PLEASE proofread and correct spelling and grammar errors before printing.

Another entry in the Merry series. Nice touches with carriage driving. Everything that made the first book is still here. ENjoyable read.

OK mystery with a lot (probably too much) info on some horse racing sports. Unique but not something that captured my attention.
