    Mystery, Romance, set in Michigan

    I travel (fly) quiet frequently and books make it all manageable for me. I resist opening my laptop and working on the plane as much as possible. Unfortunately, it seems the only time I read is while flying or waiting in the airport as this is the only time I have to myself. Recently, I was flying from the USA to Saltillo, MX via Houston. Twenty minutes before I'm scheduled to leave I realize that I only have about 50 pages left in the book I was reading. Dash to B&N. I'm looking for an escape book as the last several I've read are too much business, too serious. There, on a table, just as you enter, is Karen Wilson's book 'Coyote Kill'. What the heck, never heard of the author but something drew me to it. So you can imagine my surprise when I open the book on the plane and realize it is by a MI author and set in MI ¿ my home state! I finished reading about an hour out of my return trip to the USA. Great book. A big thank-you to the author for making my travels bearable. Mystery, Romance, Horses set in real life Michigan settings you should read this book.

    A good mystery is the perfect way to pass a rainy afternoon and they do not come much better than Karen R. Wlson's 'Coyote Kill.' Showcasing Carol Ward, a rather involuntary amateur sleuth, this fast-paced and thrilling story will take you for a roller-coaster ride you won't forget quickly. Carol Ward happens upon a grave and the killer's calling card nearby--a tree decorated with the personal items stolen from the victim. After she starts to investigate the crime, she quickly realizes that the killer is watching her and definitely does not want her to discover his true identity. From a message written on her mirror to a boxed snake delivered to her, Carol is more and more aware that she's in danger. She does not have many clues to help her in her quest, but she believes that the killer is wearing a long, waxed Australian coat and she also suspects that the crimes are somehow linked to rain. The trouble is that at least five people in her community wear such coats, and the rain is not an uncommon occurrence either. When the weather forecast predicts rain again, Carol is alarmed about it, realizing that the killer is likely to strike again. And he does, this time much closer to Carol...Can she stop him on time or will she become his next victim? Tightly written, with complex and believable characters, 'Coyote Kill' is a riveting read. From the female bonding to the interesting and quite surprising profile of the killer, this book provides enough food for thought to make it interesting beyond the simple mystery level. There are touches of well-placed comic relief as well as some minor romance, which stays as an undercurrent throughout the story. I found the variety of very strong female characters particularly engaging. I would highly recommend this book to the mystery lovers of just about any age, particularly those who enjoy female sleuths and their adventures.
