    Thumbs up HUGE thumbs-up for new Rita Mae Brown and Tami Hoag books

    RMB's is Animal Magnetism, My Life with Creatures Great and Small. Really great; the review copy passed on to me says it was out mid-October. Love it, super horse and hound stuff. The new Tami Hoag, Deeper Than Dead, is out in January. Has but a single sentence referral to our fine equine pals, but since she's a DQ it does keep this HR. Love both!

    Thanks for the review. I'd love to read it - I think I've read everything RMB's ever published (except The Hand That Cradles the Rock - can't find that one).

    If Santa doesn't bring Animal Magnetism, I'll be shopping the after-Xmas sales at Books A Million.

    My mom and I both love Rita Mae Brown- we only read the foxhunting ones (not the Sneaky Pie Brown or whatever it is) but we love them!

    Has she only written one Wellington/horse book?

    I read Dark Horse, but I wasn't sure if that was the only horse related one.

    I think that there were 2 Wellington Tami Hoag books. I liked them both, but I liked the first one (Dark Horse, I believe) a little bit more. I also wish there would be more!

    If there's another Tami Hoag H/R book, I'd love the title!

    I'd also love Barbra Moss to write her second In&Out book, I thought they were to be a series.....and I LOVED the first one!

    thanks Lucassb - I've read the first three, and had no idea there were more.
    I've read the Tami Hoag Dark Horse, and wish she would write some more 'horsey' ones too.

    Another one I really like is Jenny Pitman - she was a top steeplechase rider in the UK (won the Grand National!!) so she knows her stuff.

    I just finished The Help, and now I need a light horsey type mystery.

    But only if she has someone proofread the damn thing first this time. Never in my life have I seen more typos in a book. There was another horsey author who self-published a book that was full of typos, which I mentioned in an Amazon review. Got a hysterical response about how I obviously knew nothing (of course not, 25+ years in publishing obviously makes me a novice) and then she had it pulled.

    I love the Sister Jane foxhunting series, but I was really disappointed with the most recent Hounded to Death
    Too much "talking" and not enough action. Sister Jane opined more than she rode! An interesting 'bad guy' - Moe - killed off way too early in the book.
    RMB, please bring Crawford back as he is way more interesting than Tootie, Val, and Felicity. The girls were charming at first, but ...

    Just my humble opinion. I'm sure others will disagree.

    Just want to point out that there's foxhunting happening in the sneaky pie mysteries, as well.

    There's another by RMB called "Riding Shotgun"--a fantasy type thing where a
    modern day horseman is transported back in time to colonial times. It is a hoot!
