A fun mystery to read during the holidays, or anytime. A series of pranks at an Arizona resort lead to murder. Or are they unrleated events? My favorite prank was the numerous golf balls left on the golf green at the blind turn of the dog leg. Can you imagine, having a great shot, come around the corner and there are all those balls hiding your moment of glory. Those that like horses, will enjoy the horseback riding in this book.
