Goodreads asked Kate Kingsbury:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Kate Kingsbury Since it's a murder mystery, certain things are a given - a dead body, suspects, motives, clues, etc. The setting came from my love of the rodeo. I hadn't written about one in a long time, and when I saw an ad for one in the paper I decided to set my mystery around one. The nice thing about writing a series is that a lot of things are already in place - the major characters, the background, and the history.
