The Witness Wore Blood Bay

I'm doing two Indie Books Reading Challenges for 2011 - the ABC Indie Fiction Challenge and the I Heart Indie Books Reading Challenge (more details below). In helping to spread the word about the wonderful selection of Indie books out there, I'm going to be blogging about my progress and reviews. 

My First review for the fun, cozy mystery, The Witness Wore Blood Bay by LC Evans...


I wasn't sure if I was going to like this because the main character, Leigh, is a horsewoman and I'm not that familiar with the horsey world. But you don't need to be a horse fan to appreciate this well written cozy mystery. LC Evans transports readers into the novel brilliantly with her vivid descriptions and great dialogue. I was hooked from the start. Here's just one snippet I loved..."He was short - shorter than my five feet nine - and bald and wore a scraggly mustache that looked like an underfed garden spider". 

It's fun, pacy, humorous, and a great little read. Fans of chicklit will really enjoy this.

This novel is available from:

Amazon US

Amazon UK 


The ABC Indie Fiction Challenge...

In order to join in, you must read 24 novels in 2011 by Indie authors. One of the key rules is that each story must be written by a different author, and the first letter of the authors' surnames must begin with a different letter.
