PERIL BY PONYTAIL BOOK TOUR





Synopsis:

Marla and Dalton's honeymoon at an Arizona dude ranch veers from dangerous to downright deadly faster than a horse headed to the corral. With her husband's uncle--the resort's owner--on the suspect list for murder, Marla races to prove his innocence. She hopes her blind trust isn't misplaced, especially when she learns their relative has secrets he'd rather keep buried. As the bodies pile up, she digs deep to find the killer. With her new family in jeopardy, she'd better figure out who's adding to the spirits haunting a nearby ghost town before someone she loves is hurt. Saddle up for Marla's latest adventure in the Wild West where a Bad Hair Day is the least of her worries.
When Dalton Vail receives an invitation to spend two weeks on his cousin's dude ranch, he tells his wife it will be their honeymoon vacation.
Dalton's mother and her brother had a falling out at a young age, so Dalton does not know much about his uncle and that part of his family.
The facts that Dalton is known as a proficient detective and recent, damaging incidents have occurred on both the dude ranch and Uncle Ray's ghost town project, are not details he shades with his bride.
Until the dangerous events start affecting the couple personally.
Soon the "honeymoon" turns into a full blown investigation.

The danger escalates and even when you think all has been settled and solved, there are more secrets and danger to come. The title reference takes a while to be apparent. When you open the book and see the long list of characters referenced, don't be intimidated. You can follow along even though everyone seems to be involved in various ways.

I really enjoyed this mystery with all the extra information and history.
The relationship between the "honeymoon couple" was fun to watch. 
Who is the true master detective?
The danger escalates and even when you think all has been settled and solved, there are more secrets and danger to come. The title reference takes a while to be apparent.
I only wish the ghosts would have played a larger role or been more completely explained.
I did receive this book in exchange for an unbiased review.
Now I want to visit Arizona! I will find and read the previous books in this series.
