When Benni Harper's friend passes away, he leaves his Broken DIS ranch to his daughter Shawna and her husband. Instead of raising cattle, the couple decides to turn it into a dude ranch. And while their intentions may be good, business is not. Leave it to Benni and her family to come to the rescue. Her plan? To tempt vacationers with a quilting and western extravaganza. It works. And soon, Benni and her family are cooking, quilting, and horseback riding with a whole slew of western tenderfoots.But the west gets a little too wild when one of the ranch dogs discovers a human bone on the property. It's enough to scare any reasonable guest away. To top it off, there's a rumor that one of the visitors is a nationally known travel writer, secretly working on a write-up. A bad review could easily kill business. Before long, Benni's old nemesis, Detective ford "hud" Hudson, is on board investigating. Together they uncover the remains of a murdered man buried in a shallow grave. Now, Benni must keep the guests safe and happy while unearthing the truth behind a terrible crime.

Another great Benni Harper mystery. I liked that the story took place away from town & that my favorite character was back-Detective Hudson! He and Benni are great together, much better than Gabe!!

As always, I love these books by Earlene Fowler featuring Benni Harper and her husband Gabe. A curator at an arts museum, Benni and gets into scrapes and solved mysteries--assisted by her police chief husband. This book involves some old bones found on the property of a dude ranch. An easy, enjoyable mystery series.
