review 1: I just have to say it. Tristi Pinkston has done it again. Ida Mae and the girls have stepped into another hilarious mystery, determined to lasso the culprit and save the world—all before church starts on Sunday. As has been the case with the first two books in this series, I had a fantastic time hanging out with the Secret Sisters and laughing at their antics as they solved the mystery behind the murders of Keith’s prized stud horses.The snappy dialogue and poignant emotion has made me a dedicated fan of Ida Mae, Tansy, and Arlette. Well, actually, that’s unfair of me to say, unless I also include George, Eden, and Kevin. And let’s not forget Ren, who is all too yummy to not be involved in this story (but I suspect he’ll make a reappearance as a return missionary... more before too long.)Just for a few hints of what you can expect, in this volume, Arlette and Tansy convince Ida Mae to purchase a pair of jeans. She also rides a horse for the first time, and once during the night, in her flannel pajamas. George charters a plane and brings Eden and Kevin to the dude ranch. Just to name a few.
review 2: Hang 'Em High by Tristi Pinkston is a cozy mystery. It is only recently that I even learned what a cozy mystery is.From cozy-mystery.comThe crime-solver in a cozy mystery is usually a woman who is an amateur sleuth.The cozy mystery usually takes place in a small town or village.In a series, it is important that the characters are likable, so that the reader will want to visit them again.Cozy mysteries are considered “gentle” books… no graphic violence, no profanity, and no explicit sex.Cozy mysteries tend to be fast-paced, with several twists and turns throughout each book.The cozy mystery puts an emphasis on plots and character development.Hang 'Em High is most definitely a cozy mystery. A really good one!Ida Mae is our amateur sleuth who with the help from her friends solves the crimes.Small town setting? Yep! Omni, Utah is the small town setting for the first books in the series, Hang 'Em High takes us to a dude ranch in Montana.The characters are likable, quirky and humorous which makes me want to visit them again, can't wait for the next book in the series.Totally "gentle" - no swearing, sex or graphic violence.A very fast-paced, quick read with enough twists and turns to keep me guessing until the end.The Secret Sisters Series is character driven - it's the likable characters that bring me back to the series.Hang 'Em High has been my favorite of the series. It's a quick, easy read that made me smile. 4.5 Stars - Highly recommendContent: Clean less

Not my favorite book. Kind of knew the culprit from the beginning.
Fun, light, clean.
