I know many of us appreciate a good mystery series and thought I would share one that I stumbled on - the Ben Reese series by Sally Wright. The protagonist is an archivist professor at a small private college in OH and a WWII veteran. The series is set in the 60s and all kinds of interesting murders drop in his lap, of course!
The HR part is that Prof. Reese has a rescue TB named Journey, and the author always weaves horses into each book in a small but meaningful and realistic way. Not a fake nicker or whinny to be found! The author herself has a horse and rides dressage.
And only 2.99 each at the kindle store! Enjoy! The first in the series is titled Publish and Perish. I'm almost through the series.
