Publisher's Summary

A mystery full of colorful characters (both two- and four-legged!), gorgeous country landscapes, timeless traditions, and the breathtaking thrill of the fox hunt, from New York Times best-selling author of Crazy Like a Fox

Amid the revelry of the Christmas hunt, mystery and intrigue abound.... 

When the fanfare is interrupted by the discovery of a body, "Sister" Jane Arnold and her company of loyal hounds find themselves faced with a pressing task - to uncover who has killed a beloved club faithful. It's no help that the meddling, loathsome Victor Harris lurks in the shadows, weaseling his way back into the life of his disinherited daughter.... 

As always, the gang must untangle the complex web of clues laid before them, and with Sister Jane at the helm, they will not rest until the truth is laid bare. 

Yet again, Rita Mae Brown shines, her signature flair sure to win over listeners old and new.

As an equestrian

Dear Ms. Brown
As an equestrian I really enjoy your books but PLEASE do not read them yourself. A professional reader adds so much more nuance and you can instantly tell the various characters apart. Your reading made everything run together in the same voice. Before I purchase another I will check to see if there is a profession narrator.

Narrator

I have always loved Rita Mae Brown's books. After hearing her narrate Homeward Hound, someone needs to inform her not to narrate her own books...let the professionals do it. She is terrible!!!

Horrible Listening, Decent Read

PLEASE spring for an equity actress to perform the reading. This is a nightmare to listen to though I enjoyed reading it as a kindle book.

Another triumph

Since discovering the amazing Rubyfruit Jungle. Rita Mae Brown has been my favorite author. I love her books, the Sneaky Pie series, the Sister Jane series and the Mags and Baxter novels.

As always, you don’t get just an enjoyable story, you get to live in “her” world while the action unfolds. I’m not sure if my brain works better listening to a book, but I was able to figure out who did it. It was also a treat hearing the author read her work.

Thank you for another wonderful read, looking forward to the next one!
