This would've been a great read if I found the main character likable at all. But I thought he was an uptight, fusty pain in the rear who had a tendency for being pompous. That alone made this a less than enjoyable read for me. Too bad as I loved the idea of a large-animal vet being the focus of a mystery series very much.

It was the first in the series. I have thesecond, but have not read it yet. It was interesting, but I like the hemlock falls series better. I think, if you really loved horses and horse shows, this would have more appeal.

On their farm in upstate Summersville, NY, veterinarian Austin McKenzie and his wife, Madeline, keep themselves busy looking after a variety of ailing farm animals and pets in poor health. But while they may be able to mend creatures great and small they have yet to find a cure for murder.
