    One thought on “Hornswoggled”

    1. I m not a cozy kind of guy, but I recently found Donis Casey s series featuring Alafair Tucker, farm wife, mother and amateur sleuth in early Twentieth Century Oklahoma,and I am experiencing the zeal of the new convert While I still prefer my crime fiction darker, I relish each visit to the Tucker farm.HORNSWOGGLED picks up the next year after the events of the previous book, and begins with the discovery of a body in the creek running through the Tucker property The victim, with a bone handled [...]

    2. HORNSWOGGLED by Donis Casey Mystery Fiction, cozy 2.5 star ratingI so enjoyed the first in this series, The Old Buzzard Had it Coming, when I read it in 2010 There was a clever mystery, and Alifair Tucker seemed a down to earth and intelligent protagonist.It s awful how long it takes me to get back to a series that I want to continue But in this case, I should have postponed it indefinitely The mystery wasn t at all fairly clued and the body was moved surreptitiously so many times by so many dif [...]

    3. This 2nd book in the series was even better than the 1st Almost 4 stars Unraveling the trail to this murder was quite a ride.

    4. The second book in a series is tough People who were enchanted with the first book are looking for even better But if you poured your heart and talents into the first book, it is hard to keep up the standard Nonetheless, I found this a worthwhile read If nothing else, this book gives a sense of how hard investigation was for law enforcement and amateur investigators when all you have to go on is the most basic physical evidence.Every parent has wrestled with the principal challenge faced by Alif [...]

    5. Imagine yourself the mother of a headstrong girl who knows what she wants and whom she wants to marry, letting nothing or no one get in her way Now imagine you believe that the man she has her eye on is possibly involved in the murder of his first wife What would you do If you were Alafair Tucker, you would set out to prove or disprove his guilt And even if it is proved that he is innocent of the crime, he is still considered to be a flirt and a cheat and a liar But Alafair s daughter is bound a [...]

    6. This is the second book in the Alafair Tucker series I absolutely love it It s set in Oklahoma and it s spring 1913 in Boynton, Oklahoma Love and murder are in the air, and unfortunately Alafair and her family are drawn into both One of Alafair s daughters seems to be in love with a man that Alafair cannot trust or like, but Alice is adamant that she must have this man, even though he may be implicated in his wife s recent death I love Alafair, and I love her down to earth outlook on life The gl [...]

    7. This is the second Alafair Tucker mystery, set in 1913, Oklahoma Though it sparkles in historical atmosphere, language, and family life, it doesn t quit live up to the first book in this series That said, I definitely enjoyed Alastair s detecting to protect her large family.Alice, one of Alastair and Seth Tucker s eldest daughters is bound and determined to marry the widowed barber, Walter Alafair is just as determined to protect her daughter from someone with a reputation for chasing women, eve [...]

    8. Donis Casey writes historical mysteries set in Oklahoma, this one set in 1913 Alafair is the mother of twelve, ten of whom are still living When one of her twins sets her cap for a recent widower Alafair is on the hunt to determine who killed the widower s wife, hoping to change her determined daughters mind.The mystery here was about as convoluted and confused as any I have ever read There were tons of clues and plenty of possible murderers so my mind jumped from one to another trying to track [...]

    9. I tried really hard to like this book, but there was way too much shucky durn for my taste I realize that the setting was early 1900 a when things were supposed to be much simpler The author had a difficult time staying in one POV, and I really don t see what daily chores or what was served for dinner was relevant to the story The murderer was named Ulises or Ulis depending on what page you were on At one point, both in one paragraph The final chapter was too much of a happily ever after for me. [...]

    10. Donis Casey does it again I almost didn t guess who done it until near the end I ll tell ya she s good mystery writer You re so caught up in the whole 1913 down home culture and meanwhile the currant of the story is taking place and you are follow every move that Alafair makes and how it all comes together in the end Even Alafair was surprised at the conclusion of this mystery.

    11. I love it when historical fiction really captures the time More than being well researched, this writing reflects the feel of its time period it s values, place, language, and daily life Bonus If you are an audiophile like me, this book has a quality narrator Now, to download the next in the series and get on with the fun.

    12. I loved this book it is one of those that you identify with almost every character You have a friend or a neighbor who is exactly like the characters that Donis Casey writes about

    13. These are just fun books I love how you don t know who done it till the end They keep you turning pages, which I love Can t wait to try

    14. Really good, but I think I liked her other ones better just because of how it turned out Still written well a page turner.

    15. 3.5 this is the second book in a light and entertaining series taking place in Oklahoma in the early 1900s.

    16. Donis Casey has a wonderful writing style and really brings her characters to life This second in the series was as enjoyable as the first.

    17. I loved the history in Hornswoggled The author describes the way of life and how households were run in Oklahoma in 1912 Very interesting story with an exciting mystery.

    18. Especially good for setting, details of life in small town Oklahoma in early 1 4 of 1900 s Detective is a housewife with 10 kids Hurrah for our side.Mystery is weak.

    19. Absolutely loved it Unusual sleuth with a unique point of view a mother of 10 in the early 1900 s you get a view of rural farm life along with an interesting, believable story line Great book.
