Talk To The Hoof

Kate Collins, Book #2

5 Stars


A missing woman, a dead body, and two horses with a chilling story…

Kallie Collins, veterinarian and animal communicator, hopes to enjoy a day of riding with friends until a bay mare shows her a vision of a terrified woman. A second horse adds his images of cloaked figures walking through shadow-filled passages.

The visions the two horses share lead to the discovery of a shallow grave near the stable, plunging Kallie into a deadly mystery.

With the suspects multiplying, can Kallie expose the killer before it’s too late and there’s another murder… maybe her own?   (Amazon)


The writing style flows smoothly and it defines the characters very clearly by their actions and words.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions brought the book to life in my mind’s eye.  I could picture the stables and horses as I was reading about them, which is great.  The mystery was well plotted  and kept me engaged throughout the entire book.  There were plenty of suspects to consider and clues to sift through.

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Kallie and her two friends, Sam and Gracie, are very close and they really care about each other.  When Kallie and Gracie go to check out Sam’s latest boyfriend at Shady Maple Stables, Kallie gets visions from one of the horses that are at the stable.  I forgot to mention that Kallie is a veterinarian that gets visions from animals.  The vision involves a missing woman and no one knows what happened to her, except maybe her horse.  With the help of Sam and Gracie, Kallie will try to solve the mystery of the missing woman and also a murder.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  And if you like a twist to that cozy, then this is a must read book.  I really like the premise of the book, a vet that gets visions from animals that she encounters.  I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
