    Not Sure How to FeelMiles has flown to Vermont from her home in Montana to visit her girlfriend Jane Miles finds herself suspicious of Jane's friend Georgia who owns and runs a riding stable and trains riders Miles can see that Georgia has designs on Jane and there is something else not uite right with the woman Soon Miles and Jane find themselves caught up in a deadly pile of manure I wasn't too sure what to think about the book when shortly in when Jane's nude body is described “The dark hair at her crotch suggested a wild animal lived there” The description of her breasts isn't much better The writing did improve and I started to enjoy the story in spite of figuring out some of the puzzle early on However there were some twists I didn't see coming some good some awful I had become emotionally invested in these women only to have everything go really really wrong I felt shock anger shock and then disappointment betrayal and sadness I guess while it was a good story premise I would rather not have read the book That's just my opinion

    I love this bookMiles first name Becky but don't call her that or she won't answer is a rancher from southwest Montana who embarks on a two week trip she can barely afford to visit her friend and lover Jane in Vermont Her motive for the visit is partly pure loneliness and partly a nagging fear that she may be losing Jane who seems to have become inexplicably involved with someone named Georgia a closeted lesbian who owns and runs an upscale horse show barnA woman and a horse have recently died together in an apparent accident in one of the stalls at Georgia's stable Something about these deaths and the so far accepted explanation for them smells wrong to Miles So does something about Jane's loyalty to Georgia which doesn't seem warranted because Georgia is to put it as kindly as possible a thoroughly messed up human being – or to put it not so kindly a bitch in overdrive Miles's misgivings and her curiosity lead her to engage in a bit of amateur detective work which uickly pulls her and Jane into deep water where there's a dangerous undertowThe romance and the murder mystery inseparable from each other make for a story that's absolutely riveting McMahon manages to make this reader who's seldom been within a few yards of a horse not only wish I had experience with these beautiful creatures but also see and appreciate what's going on when her characters interact with them Her prose is sure skillful at times even lyrical and Miles's voice as first person narrator is engaging and often wryly funnyIf you've read this far you're a review reader so I'm going to say something no spoilers about the White Horse plot One of the book's great strengths is its plot arc how every incident builds naturally on the characters and their responses to what came before Yes some of the occurrences depend on coincidence but then doesn't everything in life depend on coincidence and how people respond to it? I've noticed that a few reviewers didn't like the way the story ends I myself certainly didn't see this turn coming but it felt absolutely right to me And what comes after the turn is one of the most moving and beautiful – and right – endings that I've ever readHighly recommended

    White Horse in Winter by Franci McMahon ticked all the right boxes for me regarding genre I love horse mysteries and have a thing for enjoying LGBTAn unusual mixture you might think Yet it works uite well The crime is murder of a horse and its owner No professional investigators here; just amatuer sleuthing at its bestTo begin with I found the relationship dynamics of the 3 main characters a bit confusing Long distance relationships homophobia and serious trust issues all take their place in Franci McMahon's novel In that respect it's very true of today It's shameful that there is homophobia still around for example White Horse In Winter is the second book in a series So I've come a little late to the party Would it have made it enjoyable? Perhaps and it would explain why I felt just a touch confused to begin withThe uestion is Does this book stand up okay on its own? I would say yes It doesn't take long to catch up with things at all Description in some areas could have been better but then our readers just may not see things the way we do Creatives are not called 'odd' for nothing Whilst homophobia is part of this novel I got a little annoyed with the characters mainly sticking to 'their own' That would give credence to the fact that maybe there is something to be ashamed of With regards to the murder motive is a strong factor here rather than a 'serial killer' type crime Discovering the reasons behind this crime turned out to be interesting than figuring out who the culprit was I enjoyed White Horse In Winter but I would have enjoyed it a lot if I'd read the one before Night Mare

    I was a bit disappointed with the reviews that this book engendered as I think it is worth a lot than the two stars that some of the other reviewers gave itTo fully appreciate this book you would have to read the first one Night Mare as this books ends where the second begins Without reading this you would have no understanding of Miles and Jane's relationship Both books are essentially who done its in the upper echelons of the horse world and Franci writes a suspenseful story Her prose is very descriptive and she has a wonderful turn of phrase The first book has Jane as the narrator and the second has Miles Both girls are very different and the author has given them uite distinctive voices which is no mean feat I think the stories are well constructed and there is humour tenderness violence as well as sadness throughout Love and friendship are well depicted and I cannot understand the comments one reviewer made about Miles That reviewer also thought the book was about horses in the snow Please have you never heard of analogies?I recommend both books as good reads and I hope we hear from Franci McMahon and Miles

    I too have to give this only two stars It was just okay Not horrible just okayI did not care for the voice of the story I guess I just couldn't get into to the story and sometimes I couldn't even figure out where the story was goingMiles the main character is really just unlikable But you kind of get used to her as the story goes along Then all of the sudden I found myself wondering does this person have no feelings whatsoever?Like I said it just wasn't for me At least I did finish it Always a plus when I don't walk away

    Love doesn't always end with rainbowsOk I finished this book a couple days ago and forgot to do the review When I was reading this one I kept thinking I missed something and I did the first book Night Mare But any ways I love the characters Miles jane and Vic The storyline has me so pulled in I kept trying trying to figure out what the heck You had me crying at the end And it was nice seeing that all love stories don't end with rainbows
