I'm currently reading The Saddlemaker's Wife by Earlene Fowler. This book is not a mystery, although it's author also pens the Benni Harper Mystery series. My great-aunt gave me this book. She told me she read it 7 times and loves it, she can't wait to discuss it with me. I am enjoying it. While not classified as a mystery, in a way it is one.
Ruby McGavin travels to the small town of Cardinal, California to meet her late husband's family, the family she was told didn't exist. Ruby, grief stricken after the sudden death of her husband of only 6 months, discovers she's inherited a portion of a cattle ranch, and discovers there was a lot her husband never told her about himself, as well as his family.
