Overview

In Talented Horsewoman, the first book of the Leigh McRae horse mystery series, main character Leigh McRae discovers a body. She also ends up solving a murder. Along the way she helps her cousin Sammi, who is dating a burglar, and she manages to get out from under the control of her overbearing ex-husband.

Now Leigh's friend Candy, a fellow horsewoman, finds herself accused of murder. Who else would she turn to for help except Leigh? After all, everyone in small town Del Canto knows Leigh has body-discovering experience. Never mind that Leigh is busy finding out who's poisoning dogs in Sammi's neighborhood and she's trying to renovate her home without going broke. Or that her ex-husband Kenneth and former ranchhand Doug Reilly have become roommates in Leigh's guest house.

There's a murder to solve. And her friend won't take no for an answer.

Editorial Reviews

Consuelo Saah Baehr
I began reading The Witness Wore Blood Bay on a snowy afternoon. I didn't lift my head for the next two hours and then only to turn on the lights. Within a half dozen pages, this deft writer had created the best kind of small town ambiance in which to set her mystery. Yes, there is a crime at the center of the story and it has to be solved but how we get there is oh so enjoyable.
M. Baldwin
I would put LC Evans in the category of my other favorite mystery writers, Margaret Maron and Janet Evonovich. The Leigh McRae series are set in Florida and revolve around horses, something I know nothing about, but the reader doesn't need to be an equine enthusist to enjoy these books. Ms. Evan explains it all so it is an integral part of the setting, but not required to enjoy the mystery!
Sibel Hodge
I wasn't sure if I was going to like this because the main character, Leigh, is a horsewoman and I'm not that familiar with the horsey world. But you don't need to be a horse fan to appreciate this well written cozy mystery. LC Evans transports readers into the novel brilliantly with her vivid descriptions and great dialogue. I was hooked from the start. Fans of chick lit will enjoy this.

    Great book

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were engaging and the plot draws you in quickly. The writing style is very easy to read. This is a light, but well written, murder mystery. Details about horses and dogs add character to the story and make it intriguing. I would definitely recommend this book.

    My New Best Friend

    I found a new best friend this week. Leigh McRae ~ horsewoman and irresistible amateur sleuth. This is the second in the series and now I want to read the first book, A Talented Horse Woman. Lee and her cousin Sammi are a likeable set of snoops. I really thought I knew where the story was going and who the murderer was. Wrong. I love being wrong. Linda Evans puts her readers in the action and keeps them there. The Witness Wore Blood Bay is fun, cozy and enlightening. PS. Blood Bay is not a naval battlefield. It's the color of a horse. Highly Recommended.

    I'm glad it was only 99?

    I purchased this after noticing the horse on the cover and reading the teaser which promised a horsey murder mystery. I may never find out who did it, the dialogue and writing is clunky and dull. After thirty pages or so, I can't take any more.
