Book Review-Trouble in Summer Valley #4-Susan Y Tanner

Thursday, May 24, 2018

I have read a book featuring Trouble before (see review here). The title: Familiar Trouble (Familiar Legacy Book 1)-Carolyn Haines. It seems that the Trouble mystery series is written by several different authors. And so far I have loved all that I have read.

Avery Wilson was recently divorced from her husband who had a tendency to gamble away all her hard earned money. Her step daughter stayed with her. They had built up the Summer Valley Ranch together--

Dirk Hanna appeared from the federal government to discover why payments were being taken from the ranch supposedly to help veterans rehabilitate with the use of horses. This was Avery's dream--to help ex servicemen. She didn't know that the ranch had already been approved!

Trouble--an extremely intelligent black cat owned by a friend of Avery showed up as Avery finally won in the divorce proceedings. He immediately had to protect Avery from her ex as any smart cat would do--then he followed her back to the ranch. You see Trouble was a cat who is very good at investigating--but even he had a bit of trouble with this one. So between being very careful near those large animals--being chased by colts across fields-Trouble has a running commentary in his mind.

The ending really threw me for a loop in this one. Talk about one big twist!! Thankfully Trouble was able to figure it out before it was too late (almost) and was able to grab Dirk's attention--after all--there is only so much a cat can do!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

DIVORCE, BETRAYAL, MURDER – Avery Wilson knew starting over would be hard, but she never expected to be in an all-out war with her ex. What was he planning next? Her goal of equine rehabilitation for wounded veterans on her Alabama horse ranch was slipping from her grasp, and her precious horses were in danger.

Dirks Hanna had what should have been a simple mission – evaluate Summer Valley Ranch for federal funding. But something deadly was happening in Summer Valley. The beautiful – and headstrong – equestrian was targeted for harm with danger in every direction. And, intertwined with that danger, was a multi-faceted black cat who somehow appeared at the scene of every disaster.

Trouble had arrived at the ranch anticipating bitter human emotions to run high, but the black cat finds his paws more than full with murder and two very stubborn humans who refuse to see they are meant for each other.
