Dead Blow: A Horseshoer Mystery by Lisa Preston

Rainy has a new client.  She's a widow whose husband died in a tractor accident.  But the more she learns about him, the more she wonders if it was an accident.  He had a lot of girlfriends.  Was his wife jealous?

Arcade Crimewise and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published November 5th.

While Rainy is is shoeing her horses, she learns of a mean bull in the near field is warned to be careful around him.  What adds to the mystery is when the farm dog drags a glove up around them and they discover there is a hand in it...

While the cops are happy to let the tractor accident stand, Rainy finds a bullet in the tractor tire that may be why he had the accident.  She also wonders why the dead woman they found was so far from where search and rescue was sent out.  She does her own checking, angering some people.  When she gets to close to the truth, she's in danger herself.

This is a mixed up mystery with lots of characters involved.  I had no idea who the killer was.  The final showdown is exciting and dangerous.  This was a good read.
