Overview
Gail McCarthy has turned fifty, and is considering resuming her career as a horse veterinarian. Life interrupts her plans when she embarks on a solitary ride and finds a fellow equestrian shot dead. Gail's friend Detective Jeri Ward heads up the investigation, and Gail is drawn into the escalating chain of events when a second rider is murdered. She must make sense of this threat to her beloved hills and trails... or she may be the sniper's next victim. Crum's twelve-book series can be compared with Mary O'Hara's beloved My Friend Flicka books for the thoughtful tone, the beauty of her writing about nature and animals, and the philosophical considerations that spring from her stories. As bestselling author Laurie R. King wrote about an earlier Crum book: "Sometimes a mystery is more than simply Whodunit; in Moonblind, the Why of the act is equally compelling, and the story's Where becomes more of a character than merely its setting." Barnstorming is a fitting culmination to the series.

Crum gently winds down her Gail McCarthy horse mystery series with the 12th and final volume (after 2010’s Going, Gone). Single mother Gail, now 50, contemplates middle age and whether she wants to return to work as a vet or retire for real now that her son, Mac, is approaching his teens. When Gail gets involved in investigating the shooting death of a neighbor on a quiet horse trail near her Santa Cruz, Calif., home, the net effect is lazy Nancy Drew–style sleuthing and exploration rather than suspense or fear of being the next victim. The pleasures lie in the incidentals: the warmth between Gail and her son will make parents smile, series fans will be interested in Gail’s thoughts about her future, and anyone who enjoys horses or the great outdoors will appreciate her obvious love for everything equine and her attention to detail. (Apr.)
