Blizzard Makes it Hard on Rescue Horses

Blizzard Makes it Hard on Rescue Horses

Although horses get along better in cold than in high temps, this weekend's New England storm brought up to 2 feet of snow and frozen water to hundreds of horses without competent care givers. Does anyone have questions about about the rescue process?

Editorial Reviews & Book Description for Fame & Deceit A Tangle of Sex, Murder and Blue-blooded Horses

Editorial Reviews
Product Description for Fame & Deceit

It's all about the power of a dream. Driven by his Olympian goal of achieving world class recognition, Ike Cherny blocks out the world. Except for an occasional pretty woman or two, he tries to turn a blind eye to the evil swirling around him. Ike is a full-fledged horse-profiler whose innate talent to "read a horse" has never been proven. In spite of the lack of a track record, in spite of the absence of a mentor to turn to for advice, Ike believes in his ability to pluck a wild filly from the back woods of Maine and bring Aristooke Annie along so she has the polish to become the next World Champion. Someone is secretly dumping toxic waste. Has Ike's boss, Agosto Benalli cooked up a scheme to profit by burying toxic waste at Crowne Stable with Ike's girl friend, Eugenia Jordan, (CT's Commissioner of the Dept. of Environmental Protection) as Benalli's cohort? Someone is secretly killing Connecticut clergymen. Who is terrorizing Connecticut's clergymen? Is Eugenia is carrying out a sick vendetta because she believes her sister was raped and murdered at the hands of their minister? Or what about Harriet Stilton with an embedded hatred of clergymen for what one did to her son? Ike's Stable of Conniving Women Ike moves from the arms of cuddly Lisa Danzig after she is caught poisoning Ike's horses, to sexually abused Eugenia Jordan, but backs away from the relationship when she confesses to bribery. Ike discovers Eugenia's body, two month's pregnant floating in the river. Did Ike's boss order her death because of the hazardous waste scheme? Or was Eugenia overly distraught because he dumped her and decided to take her own life? Ike's attraction to Veronica Rouseau ends when he discovers she brokered the sale of Aristooke Annie. Set in New England's horse world, Fame & Deceit is is a tangle of sex, murder and blue blooded horses.

Especially for Equestrians "Amazon Customer Review"

"As a protagonist, Ike Cherney is not easy to understand at first. He's the type of man mothers warn their daughters about. Good looking, arrogant and as much a stud as the stallions he profiles. While testosterone flows freely in this fast paced novel, our hero seems to care more for the horses in his charge than any of his numerous female admirers.

But as he strives to turn the blue blooded horses on his employer's stud farm into world class show horses and his stable of two-legged fillies keep on handing him problems, we begin to identify with him. First, Lisa, the one woman he may have truly loved, departs leaving only a note; then, Billie, his assistant trainer with a temper to match her red hair, starts coming on a little too strong; and finally the body of his newest conquest, is found floating in a nearby river. An autopsy reveals that she was two months pregnant and Ike wonders if the child could have been his. At this point we begin to comprehend this complicated man.

It's not only the women in Ike's life that give him trouble. He has reason to wonder if the owner of the stable is involved in something highly illegal and, as well, clergymen in the area are being murdered and the finger points to one of his women. "Fame and Deceit" is a well-written and exciting look into the fascinating world of breeding stables and world class horsemanship--a world with which both the author and her husband are totally familiar. With her inimitable writing style, it's not only lovers of fine horseflesh who will enjoy this book.

This is a very enjoyable book for light summer reading."

Like a Lifetime Movie, Amazon Customer Review

"Not being from the horse world, it was fun to be taken into the world of horse trainer, Ike Cherney, the main character and the cast of characters that affect his life. Each chapter gets better and better, making the book hard to put down. I had a party to go to, and all I could think about was getting back home to read more. By the end, you are rooting for Ike and his horse at the World Championships while feeling all the emotions of the competitions. At the same time, the scenes are switching back and forth with deaths, relationships and murder investigations at the ranch. I could easily see this story being a Lifetime Movie. Very enjoyable read."

By Joan M. Roberts (Atlanta, GA. USA)

Thank You Joan, someday Lifetime or Oprah will read my book....
