Books to curl up with: a librarian's musings

Monday, June 05, 2006


As you know I am a big fan of the author Earlene Fowler and her ongoing mystery series, which features Benni Harper and her family and friends.

Fowler has left Benni behind in Saddlemaker's Wife. Ruby's husband dies in a car crash without skid marks. She is left bewildered by why her husband of six months would kill himself. It seems he had a number of secrets that burdened him. She also learns that his family wasn't deceased as he had said. Ruby travels north to put his ashes to rest and learn what could have driven her husband to his end.

I really enjoyed this new character and book. Somethings seemed to echo from the Benni Harper novels, but it stands well on its own and will bring Fowler new fans.
