“Happy Horsey Halloween”

Scary Season is upon us, and equestrian lifestyle blog The Barngoddess Chronicles is celebrating in style. Featured are the Ivy Snow Mystery Series penned by EQUUS award winning author, Janet Winters. The series, based on true stories, follow Ivy Snow, former US Olympic Team hopeful, as she navigates murder and mayhem without ever becoming unseated.

The debut novel, Murder At Morgan House sets the stage. After being stripped of her Olympic dreams by a near-fatal  accident, Ivy discovers that her criminal lawyer husband is leading a double life. She seeks refuge  in a small country town only to find herself in the throes of blackmail, arson and murder. From the riverbanks of Paris, to the cloistered environs of waspish American wealth, Ivy must unravel the mystery surrounding a steel tycoon’s death, while trying to protect her psychic teenage daughter, who knows too much for her own good.

In the sequel, Death At Heart’s Desire, the saga continues. Ivy Snow’s days are numbered…that is if ex-husband Bart Skeleton has his way. He’s been humiliated and incarcerated thanks to Ivy, and in Death at Heart’s Desire he seeks his ultimate revenge. After a daring prison escape that leaves a river of destruction in its wake, Skeleton hatches a diabolical plan to put his ex-wife in her rightful place…the graveyard. With the help of her psychic teenage daughter, Jaycee, and paramour, Detective John Garrett, Ivy desperately tries to untangle Bart’s evil web…before it’s too late.

With the series newest release, Peril In Paradise, dreams turn to nightmares in Florida’s elite equestrian world when Ivy’s daughter, Jaycee, makes her riding debut. In a world where wealth, power and social standing rule, murder is most unwelcome for humans and horses alike. But murder, mystery and mayhem is what’s served up to the polo and penthouse crowd, much to the horror of the horse world. Ivy’s deductive skills and Jaycee’s psychic powers are put to the test when summoned to unearth the evil that conjure up Peril In Paradise.

Also on The Barngoddess reading list is a new release from Bill O’Riley & Martin Dugard, Killing The Witches

Killing the Witches revisits one of the most frightening and inexplicable episodes in American history: the events of 1692 and 1693 in Salem Village, Massachusetts. What began as a mysterious affliction of two young girls who suffered violent fits and exhibited strange behavior soon spread to other young women. Rumors of demonic possession and witchcraft consumed Salem. Soon three women were arrested under suspicion of being witches—but as the hysteria spread, more than 200 people were accused. Thirty were found guilty, twenty were executed, and others died in jail or their lives were ruined.

Curl up with a good book and have a frighteningly fantastic Halloween!
