This was a really cute story. The characters were fun to read about, and I didn't see the end coming. There was friendship, humor, action, and a mystery to solve. A fun mystery story for young girls to read

Meet the Author

Claudia Cangilla McAdam, author of Riddle at the Rodeo, knew at age ten that she wanted to be a writer when she grew up. As a child, she would do her chores on Saturday mornings with a book in hand (usually a Nancy Drew mystery). It was easy to multi-task if she was running the vacuum cleaner; not so easy if she was ironing or mowing the lawn. Growing up in Colorado within earshot of her county's fairgrounds, Claudia could hear the rodeo announcers voice traveling through the thin atmosphere on summer nights. It was the start of her fascination with the sport. Today, Claudia is an award-winning children's author who still lives in Colorado, who still reads mysteries, and who still enjoys the rodeo. It seems only natural that she'd write a book combining those ingredients.
