It was a sheer joy to visit for a while on the Outer Banks of NC. Get ready for a tropical storm, murder, romance, the beautiful wild horses and the people who love and protect them. FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

The third mysteries in O'Sullivan's award-winning Outer Banks Series! And the best yet! Myrtle Crepe, mistress/master of disguise is back, this time in Elvis drag with a melting wax nose! I love, love, love this book so much I bought 5 of them as gifts!

Neighing with Fire by Kathryn O’Sullivan is the third book in the Colleen McCabe series. Colleen McCabe is the Fire Chief for Corolla Fire and Rescue. She is currently dating Bill Dorman who is the Currituck County Sheriff. They are both adjusting to going from colleagues to friends to dating (Colleen finds the term boyfriend and girlfriend juvenile and cannot think of another term). Tropical Storm Ana recently came through the Outer Banks village of Corolla. It disturbed the beaches and exposed a crime. Colleen is talking to Denny Custis, the construction mogul, trying to find out if his employees are bothering the horses (she is trying to be subtle). Myrtle Crepe put her up to it. Myrtle is the head of the Lighthouse Wild Horse Preservation Society. Denny is Antonio “Pinky” Salvatore’s rival (another construction mogul). Colleen hears screams nearby and rushes to the scene. A tourist couple found a body in the sand at their vacation rental. The storm had disturbed the sand and exposed the body. Sheriff Bill Dorman quickly arrives at the scene. Who killed this poor man and who is he? It is not anyone Colleen nor Bill know or have seen around the area. Michael Hector Fuentes is the man found buried in the sand. He was strangled and he worked for Denny Custis. Colleen is also busy with a string of arsons hitting the area. Someone is deliberately setting fire to abandoned homes. Special Agent Joe Moran is the lead investigator on the case and he is very quirky. The next day Colleen and the crew are called to a fire and they find a dead body in the house. Colleen wonders if it is the work of the arsonist. The body is identified as Denny Custis. Denny was not a pleasant man and was not well-liked. Is it the work of the arsonist or was the fire set to cover up the murder? Bill and Colleen set out to solve the crimes while they navigate their way through their new relationship. There is also a wedding taking place soon. Chip, a firefighter, is marrying Fawn (you can tell from the name that she is into crystals and auras). Fawn has asked Colleen to be in her wedding party (Colleen really tried to get out of it, but she ended up agreeing). Each guest is also asked to bring a love quote to read at the wedding. They are getting married at sunrise on the beach. Bobby Crepe, Myrtle’s son, is on an exercise regimen and people are no longer called him Big Bobby. He is turning out to be a very good firefighter. However, the guys love to tease Bobby about his overprotective mother. Myrtle is up to her usual shenanigans causing trouble for Colleen. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Neighing with Fire. I give Neighing with Fire 5 out of 5 stars. It has a good mystery (medium level mystery), romance, and humor. Neighing with Fire was a pleasure to read. I eagerly await the next book in the Colleen McCabe series. I received a complimentary copy of this novel from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in this series, and I enjoyed this one just as much. I was caught back up in the lives of the characters and the story line from the first pages. This one is another good mystery from Kathryn with lots of twists and turns that kept me reading and trying to figure out who the bad guy was until the final pages. I was given a copy of this book in return for an honest review, and this is another one from this author that I recommend to anyone who enjoys intriguing characters and a good mystery.
