Cozy Mystery review of Runaway Murder (A Carson Stables Mystery #4) by Leigh Hearon

Title: Runaway Murder (A Carson Stables Mystery #4) 
Author: Leigh Hearon 
Source: NetGalley 
Genre: Cozy Mystery 
Length: Novel
Reviewed by Laurie 
Rating: 3

Breaking free from her mounting responsibilities on the Olympic Peninsula, Carson Stables owner Annie Carson reluctantly swaps muddy jeans for breaches to attend a dressage event in Southern California. But after settling into elegant digs at a historic mansion, she finds herself surrounded by palace intrigue, backbiting riders, and cold-blooded murder. As Annie makes heads or tails of clues scattered around the show ring, she must figure out which of her new acquaintances is a killer—before the crazed culprit takes the reins . . 

As much as I love the other books in A Carson Stable Mystery series this one fell short for me.

Leigh Hearon was very thorough with the terms and how a dressage event is handled, but between the dressage terms and numerous characters, I felt the mystery feel to the background, that along with Annie’s complicated relationship with Marcus. Annie is also different in this book,, she is not open minded nor does she seem as friendly as she did before. Needless to say, I just didn’t enjoy this one as much as the others.
