“Murder on the Horizon”: A classic cozy in a contemporary settingPosted: August 16, 2019 Filed under: Book Review, Books, Fiction, Mystery | Tags: Book Review, M.L. Rowland, Murder Mystery, Murder on the Horizon, Search and Rescue Mystery, Writing to be Read 2 Comments
Murder on the Horizon, by M.L. Rowland is a cleverly crafted murder mystery set in a rural resort town 100 miles east of L.A. For Grace Kinkaid, aiding in an evidence search out in the blazing desert sun is all in a day’s work. But when the Timber Creek Search and Rescue Team turns up a pair of severed hands, her view of her rural resort town and the surrounding area is about to change. Her curiosity and circumstance lead her toward the answers, and she won’t stop until she learns the truth, even when she herself becomes a target.
I truly enjoyed this story. Rowland made me feel as though I knew Gracie and her friends, and she drew me into the story, causing me to keep the pages turning. In addition to being a good mystery, it addresses social issues such as prejudice and bigotry which are so prominent in today’s world. I give Murder on the Horizon five quills.

It was a very enjoyable read, Robbie. You should give it a try if you get the chance. This author is from a small community near to me. A wonderful lady who writes from her own life experiences, and she’s had an interesting life.
