Talk to the Hoof by Lisa Shay : A Book Review

#2 of the Kallie Collins Series

Rating: 2 out of 5.

Blurb: A missing woman, a dead body, and two horses with a chilling story. . .

Kallie Collins, veterinarian and animal communicator, hopes to enjoy a day of riding with friends until a bay mare shows her a vision of a terrified woman. A second horse adds his images of cloaked figures walking through shadow-filled passages.

The visions the two horses share lead to the discovery of a shallow grave near the stable, plunging Kallie into a deadly mystery.

With the suspects multiplying, can Kallie expose the killer before it’s too late and there’s another murder… maybe her own?

I received a free copy of this book through Voracious Readers Only in exchange for an honest review. I didn’t realise that this is actually the 2nd book in the Kallie Collins series but even though I had not read the 1st book I found that I could follow this story well.

What I liked about this book is that it is different – I can’t think of any other books that have an animal communicator as the main lead. Kallie was easy to like as were all of her friends though I feel that they lacked their own personality. The other characters in this book all had their own personality so all was not lost there. I did find it a talent that the author wrote Ariel (the dog), Ella (the cat), Ravi (a horse) and Smokey (a horse) in to the book so well that I couldn’t help but fall in love with them.

I hate to say it but I did struggle with this book because I really wanted to enjoy it. There seemed to be a lot of the same thing going on; Kallie going to work, coming home, having a shower, eating food and drinking Pepsi whilst having her friends around for a chat. The conversations were much the same too and I felt myself getting bored and really having to force myself to continue to read.

I think the book was missing that big ‘OH MY GOD’ moment that I feel mystery books need.
