The main characters in Book 1, Fool Me Once, and Book 2, A Bitter Wind Blows, are realtors at Horse Country Real Estate. They only list and sell horse properties to horse people so you can just imagine that horseshoe décor is popular in the cabins they show.
Big South Fork National Park, in rural middle Tennessee where the books are set, is rugged country and horses are generally shod every six weeks or so. Shoes can be “re-set” several times but eventually, they need to be replaced. What does one do with all those used horseshoes?
Not only are horseshoes turned into useful or decorative items, cabins generally sport equestrian-themed bedding, shower curtains and bath accessories, dishes, placemats, pillows, throw rugs, etc.
Horse lovers who love to read books about horses will know they’re in the heart of horse country here, drawn into the story and the setting.
Fool Me Once has had two rounds of edits and should have a release date in the not-too-distant future. A Bitter Wind Blows is at the publisher and Signs of Life was just completed so it’s in the hands of several “critical readers” who will help to identify typos, misspellings, spacing errors, and find glitches in the plot or the timeline before it’s submitted. The fourth book in the Riverwood series, Ride A Pale Horse, is the current work in progress.
