The abrupt disappearance of the renters at the Sleuth Sisters' family farm presents Faye with the chance to do something she's always dreamed of: start a retirement home for draft horses. The circumstances surrounding the move are strange, though, and Faye, Barb, and Retta begin to suspect that at least some of the family members didn't leave voluntarily.
Balancing a menagerie of animals with tracking down clues as to where the man, woman, and three daughters might have gone, the sleuths uncover a series of surprises that lead to dangers they never anticipated. As those dangers grow, the sisters-and everyone around them-are plunged into deadly peril.

The Sleuth Sisters are back. YAY!! I love this series! The sisters have been renting out their parents home to a man who is rather strange. A single mom and her 3 daughters live with him. One day Retta receives a note saying they moved. Problem is, they left everything behind. Eventually, they discover the 3 girls living in a cabin on the property. As the story unfolds, the sisters deal with taking care of the girls, a church that is almost a cult, murder, home-grown terrorists, and the usual family dynamics of Barb, Faye, and Retta. Once again Maggie Pill has written a very entertaining cozy mystery. I loved the fact that Barb grew more tolerant as she grew to care deeply for the girls. It was so nice to see the girls were an integral part of the story-- actively involved instead of being mentioned when needed. I also love the way the relationships between Barb, Faye, and Retta have evolved through the 3 books. The sister dynamics are so real. I can't wait to read Book 4.
