Vacation with Aggie in this AWARD-WINNING SERIES

In Dang Near Dead, Aggie, Meredith and Detective Sam vacation at a Texas dude ranch. Aggie will tell her column readers how to stay young and fresh in summer. What could go wrong? Cowhands are hiding secrets, the ranch manager is jealous of her assistant, and the former ranch owners suspiciously died. When an expert rider is thrown from a horse and lies in a coma, Aggie is convinced somebody caused the fall. Despite Sam’s warnings, she probes deeper and concocts ingenious methods to expose the assailant. When she scatters a cabal of cowboys, more than one hombre in the bunch would like to bury her on the range.

A taste of outdoor Texas with cowboys, critters and humor!
