My review: Dang Near Dead by Nancy G. West
I liked this second book of Aggie Mundeen mystery. It is full of drama, humor and action. The suspense is pretty good. I had no idea who the guilty parties were or there motive. Lots of suspects. It is a clean read.
The three main characters do a lot together Aggie, Meredith and Sam. They decide to go to a dude ranch for a working vacation. No one else knows that Sam is a cop. Aggie starts getting to know the workers on the ranch and they talk to her.
Aggie starts noticing a lot of things around the ranch and eavesdrop a lot.
When a expert rider is thrown off her horse and things don't look right Sam decides to stay at the ranch and not let anyone know he is a detective. Aggie sneaks out after things quite to look over the ground and bags different things. Then two others show up to look around too.
I liked that Sam and Aggie worked together in this book after the first lectures. I hope that Aggie tells Sam what she is hiding from them. I am glad they are getting closer slowly. I want to see more of Aggie and Sam work together again.
The setting for this book is Texas hill country on a dude ranch.
I look forward to reading the next book in the Aggie Mundeen Mystery series.
I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Henery Press. I promised in return to give honest review o Dang Near Dead.
