You Can Lead A Horse To Murder by Tara Meyers: review and giveaway!

Ooh I haven’t read a murder mystery in ages! This is the first Tara Meyers book I have read so I was excited to try out a new author 🙂
The plot revolves around vet Ember Burns who returns to her hometown following the death of her mother. The previous vet retired after an unfortunate incident so she has her work cut out in regaining confidence in her profession as well as meeting new people and making friends.
Ember is asked to calm a frantic horse and discovers a body in the stable with him: Was the horse responsible? She thinks not but she is putting herself in danger by pursuing the matter…
I had no idea who the culprit was, I accused everyone! The book was easy to read, Ember was a great lead character and I think there is lots of potential to develop the characters if Tara chooses to write more (which I hope she does as I would love to read them!)
Overall score 4/5

There’s a killer in Sanctuary, and the prime suspect is a horse.

When spirited Ember Burns is led back home to open her own veterinary practice, her first client lands her in the middle of a mystery. It starts as a desire for Ember to clear her name, and turns into a personal entanglement in a rapidly unfolding story of lies and deceit.

The small mountain town of Sanctuary has always had its secrets. Who can be trusted? It’s been ten years since Ember lived there but roots run deep. Discerning friend from foe isn’t an easy task. Relying on her intelligence and instinct, Ember tries to piece the clues together as the town gears up for its centennial celebration.

From the quaint historic shops, to the rugged mountains surrounding them, Ember works to unveil the true culprit before time runs out.

About the author
At nineteen, I was recruited into a secret government program, where my memory was erased .. wait — that’s the outline for a potential book. Sorry, my real biography isn’t quite as interesting, but I’ll give it a shot! 

I live in the Pacific Northwest, and when I’m not writing, I’m out beach combing with my dogs for sea glass, or hiking in the rugged Cascade Mountains. It’s the perfect backdrop to fuel my creative genius. *rubs hands together evilly* 

You’ll find all my adult romantic suspense and cozy mysteries on Amazon under Meyers, and on my OTHER profile (secret identity ;)) Tara Ellis, I keep my middle grade and young adult books. Check them out, You might like those, too!

Mama Be Kind.

Wise words. Simple. True.
Mama Be Kind.
Be kind to others. Be kind to yourself.
A message that every mum should take to heart.

Because we are our own worst critics. We compare ourselves to others. Second guess our decisions. Doubt everything. Fear we are not good enough.
I want my children to be kind. I want them to have confidence and be proud of themselves.I want them to be happy. But I don’t often set a good example.

Back in September I met a lovely blogger at Blog On Xmas. Mummy Gummie is someone whose blog I’ve been following so I felt like I knew her quite well despite never actually meeting her in person before! I bravely went over and said ‘hi’…
Mummy Gummie decided to set up Mama Be Kind, a clothing brand with a difference: to inspire women to support each other and be kind to others and ourselves. Ten per cent of profits are donated to postnatal depression charities to promote positive mental health.

I bought two t shirts and will wear them with pride! Be kind. Full stop.
Mama Be Kind had KINDLY offered a prize of one white and pink t shirt to one lucky one of you!

Win a white and pink Mama Be Kind t shirt!

#Project365 week eleven

I’m still stuck in bed with vertigo so am restricted on the scope for taking pics! I have made it out of the house a couple of times for the children’s sake but it has really taken it out of me 🙁
Day 70: Mother’s Day was effectively cancelled but I pledged to take more pics of my mum so here she is having a cuddle with the kids

Day 71: not the best pic but I made it out of the house to go to Mother’s Day campfire cooking with Matthew and Beavers

Day 72: Anya loves dressing up especially in my clothes! Here she is in my swimsuit, gloves and bra. Oh and it was at 7am!

Day 73: Matthew had a glowing report from his teacher at parents’ evening. Zach idolises his big brother and copies him all the time

Day 74: the kids love the play tents but do have a tendency to get over excited!

Day 75: Anya wearing her own clothes but dressed for summer! She never seems to feel the cold while I am always in multiple layers!

Day 76: a touch of snow! Not a great deal this time round but enough to make me feel like summer is still a long way off..
