    HORNSWOGGLED by Donis Casey Mystery Fiction, cozy 2.5 star ratingI so enjoyed the first in this series, The Old Buzzard Had it Coming, when I read it in 2010 There was a clever mystery, and Alifair Tucker seemed a down to earth and intelligent protagonist.It s awful how long it takes me to get back to a series that I want to continue But in this case, I should have postponed it indefinitely The mystery wasn t at all fairly clued and the body was moved surreptitiously so many times by so many different people that the book reminded me of the period English farces I watched at the Shaw Festival decades ago Only the book wasn t funny.Points for the period setting 1912 Oklahoma and dealing with t...

    The second book in a series is tough People who were enchanted with the first book are looking for even better But if you poured your heart and talents into the first book, it is hard to keep up the standard Nonetheless, I found this a worthwhile read If nothing else, this book gives a sense of how hard investigation was for law enforcement and amateur investigators when all you have to go on is the most basic physical evidence.Every parent has wrestled with the principal challenge faced by Alifair Tucker how to stand by while your hard headed child is making what you believe is a major life mistake Alifair doesn t like the handsome, wealthy widower her daughter Alice has chosen as her fianc Then there is th...
