Library Journal Review

Summoned to a California dude ranch to investigate the death of a prize horse, British expat and pet detective Delilah Doolittle (Delilah Doolittle and the Careless Coyote) steps into a hornet's nest of family feuds. Normally employed to locate missing pets, Delilah feels ill equipped to finger the poisoner of a million-dollar horse. But aristocratic ranch-owner Hilda, who criticizes her own son, dislikes her daughter's hired-hand boyfriend, and positively fumes about black-sheep brother-in-law Charles, wants something done. Unfortunately, bad feelings and rumors of embezzlement escalate to murder. Guiver's down-to-earth narrative, fetching characters, a host of doggies and cats, and those not-so-faint British touches (despite the setting) commend her latest series adventure to most mystery collections.
