Hang ‘Em High is the third book in the Secret Sisters Mystery series and probably my favorite so far. This LDS cozy mystery was set in Montana, so put on your big girl boots and let’s get rollin’!
Ida Mae Babbitt is quite a character all on her own but when you put her with Arlette and Tansy, watch out friends, because here comes trouble! Who would guess that a “mature” bunch of women could wreak so much havoc? In the first two books, Ida Mae and crew end up solving a couple mysteries and so by this, the third book, the girls solidly believe they are detectives and solvers of all crimes. When Ida Mae’s son, Keith, finds not one, but two of his prized horses dead, the gals know that he needs their expert help.
Not only is this story a fun mystery, it is an emotional journey for both Ida Mae and Keith. It is the road to discovery and healing for them both because after years of separation and misunderstanding, they have the chance to make things right again.
There was so much to love in this book. It was easy reading that left me feeling good at the end. Tristi has a way of writing characters that you can relate to. I can picture them in my mind so easily. I love the rock solid friendship that has formed between Ida Mae, Tansy and Arlette through life’s experiences together. I love the reconciliation between a mother and her son. How sad for people to lose so much time because of misunderstanding and pride. I’ve seen it my life and it is so, so sad. I guess it sort of hit a chord with me.
Hang 'Em High is a fast, fun mystery with real emotion that will make you smile, frown, and then smile again. Mostly, there is just a lot of smiling. J I’m so glad to be a part of the blog tour for this book. My thanks to Tristi Pinkston for allowing me to read and review her book. Tristi is awesome!
