Book Description:

She never misses a target. But unless she can solve this murder, she’ll become one…

Chicago World’s Fair, 1893. “Little Sure Shot” Annie Oakley is exhausted from her work with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. But when a fellow performer scuffles with a man who threatens her harm, she has to keep her eyes peeled. And when the heckler is found dead under the Ferris Wheel, Annie won’t rest until she proves her defender is innocent.

Before she can rustle up any clues, an old friend asks Annie to protect her young daughter. And as more bodies turn up around the grounds, she’s going to need all her sharpshooting skills just to stay alive.

Can Annie live up to her reputation and put a bullseye on the killer?

Folly at the Fair is the third book in the Annie Oakley mystery series. If you like strong heroines, Wild West adventures, and suspenseful twists and turns, then you’ll love Kari Bovée’s fast-paced whodunit.

Autor Kari Bovee

Meet the Author:

When she’s not on a horse, or walking along the beautiful cottonwood-laden acequias of Corrales, New Mexico; or basking on white sand beaches under the Big Island Hawaiian sun, Kari Bovee is escaping into the past—scheming murder and mayhem for her characters both real and imagined, and helping them to find order in the chaos of her action-packed novels. Bovee writes the award-winning Annie Oakley Mystery Series and the Grace Michelle Mystery Series, and has more ideas than time for many, many more.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

This book is set in one of my favorite places to read about, Chicago during the 1893 World’s Fair. Annie Oakley is well known for her name, but she is also known as “Little Sure Shot” by the fans at the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show.

I enjoyed this fun story. It was intriguing to watch Annie and her friend Emma chasing clues about this new case they have. I always enjoy trying to solve the cases as I read books, and I thought sure I knew the right guy to blame,  but I was wrong. There are twists and turns here that will throw you off, so its hard to guess whodunit. 

This was not a boring book, that is for sure. It will keep you quite entertained. And in the end, author Kari Bovee weaves together all of the loose ends for an enjoyable and entertaining read. If you are a history buff, this is one you will enjoy!

One more thing, I was able to listen to the audiobook of FOLLY AT THE FAIR.  The narration was by Susanna Burney and she does a brilliant job as she reads the book. Her voice is pleasant to listen to and I love how she changes her voice for each person as well as the expressions in each person’s voice. This is not only a great book to read it is a great audiobook to listen to. I highly recommend this book, and I am happy to give this one Five Stars.

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
