Front row seats to murder. Thousands of eyewitnesses. Can our psychic sleuth trust her own eyes?

Mitzy Moon is loving life after the honeymoon. And as part of their agreement to try new things, she’s happily whooping it up at the local cowboy competition. But the newlyweds get roped into yet another investigation when their date night ends with a dead rodeo clown.

As her new husband’s history with the prime suspect’s wife tests all loyalties, Mitzy struggles to balance jealousy with keeping her man out of the hoosegow. And now she’ll need saddlebags of extra help from her mentor, Ghost-ma, and her entitled feline to unhorse the ruthless culprit.

Can Mitzy and Erick wrangle all the clues, or will spurious accusations bring a deadly showdown?

Rodeo Clowns and Shakedowns is the second book in the hilarious new paranormal cozy mystery series, Harper and Moon Investigations, a spinoff from the popular Mitzy Moon Mysteries. If you like snarky heroines, supernatural intrigue, and a dash of romance, then you’ll love Trixie Silvertale’s bucking brainteaser.

Read an Excerpt

A young boy, about seven or eight, breaks free from his mother’s grasp and runs into the street. It looks as though he’ll be trampled by the bull riders on their huge horses.

The no-nonsense group of men comes to a halt as one.

A strong, lithe man on a Palomino dismounts in a single smooth motion. As he lands on the ground, a puff of dust rises from his boots. He scoops up the boy, easily delivering him to his panicked mother.

“Thank you.” Her cheeks flush under the intense gaze of the bull rider, and she turns to her son. “Robbie, you can’t dash out into the street. This man could’ve run right over you with his horse.”

The man takes off his hat and gazes at the young boy. “You hopin’ to ride bulls one day, Robbie?”

The little boy bobs his head, his eyes full of admiration.

“Then you gotta do one thing for me. Can you do that?”

Robbie nods eagerly.

The cowboy tilts his head and gets real serious. “You gotta learn right from wrong, and then you gotta do right. And listen to your mama.” The wise cowboy brushes some dust off his hat and places that symbol of “integrity” on the young boy’s head. He turns back to his horse, mounts up, and the parade resumes.

I swipe a happy tear from the corner of my eye and squeeze my arm around Erick. “Yeah, we’re definitely going to the rodeo.”
