My friend turned me onto Rita Mae Brown by giving me "Bingo" to read, and she's one of my favorite authors now. If you grew up reading the "Saddle Club" series you'll love Brown's hunt club mysteries - they're like the grown up version but just as fun.
A Master of a prestigious hunt club, Jane Arnold, known as Sister, is most revered citizen in the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountain town where a rigid code of social conduct and deep seated tradition carries more weight than money. Nearly seventy, Sister now must select a joint master to ensure the club's future. It is an honor of the highest order- and one that any serious social climber would covet like the Holy Grail.
Thoroughly enjoyed this story. I like getting the view point of the humans and animals. An interesting murder adventure in the midst of a foxhunt. I have yet to get a chance to try foxhunting, but would love to give it a go. I was pleased to learn some foxhunting history that is woven in the story. The well established characters will have me reading the next novel.
