    One thought on “Poaching Daisies: A Yellowstone Mystery”

    1. Sometimes, in the small town of Cooke, you have to wonder if there's room for all the different people who live there: hunters, rangers, environmentalists, and regulars. Then there are the tourists, who come in droves to explore Yellowstone National Park, bringing their own particular brand of baggage (physical and behavioral) with them. When a bear is killed and Ranger Penny Thornton is the first on the scene, gunshots chase her away, but when she returns to investigate, the evidence is gone. T [...]

    2. The author of this book is a dear friend and neighbor of mine. I loved it! A fun, clean read, that even your daughter will enjoy. The characters in the book are endearing, and remind me a little of the author herself. Bleeding heart, liberal Iris, and man's man Russ are fun to watch as their friendship develops throughout the book. This is a quick summer read that will make you smile and want to head to Yellowstone for a little road trip. The town of Cooke City is a great backdrop for the story. [...]

    3. This is one of those very fun mystery books where you like the character and think they are the good guyd then the author throws in a twist and now you dislike the character and think they are the bad guyd then the author throws in another twist and now you don't know if the character is good or bad you keep reading and more twists are givend by now you are so undecided that you just sit back enjoy the ride of the story to find out who is good and who is badSO GOOD!

    4. Penny Thorton is a brand new employee with the rangers of Yellowstone National Park. Having just flunked out of the police academy, she is hoping that this trial summer job will turn into something permanent. Almost from day one on the job, Penny stumbles into a slain black bear, obviously the victim of a poacher's trap. She takes pictures of the evidence, but before she can finish investigating, she is forced to flee the scene by an unseen shooter. She barely escapes with her life, and has lost [...]

    5. Finished!!! Read "Poaching Daisies by Carole Thayne Warburton ( a Utah author) in 3 days-4 sittings. Loved it!!! Carole did not waste anytime getting you involved in her suspenseful, intriguing, nature filled, and park ranger rookie story and making you anxious to know what, where and who did it! Yes, from the very beginning I was sitting on the edge of my chair wanting the answers to Penny Thorton's problem. If you love Yellowstone National Park, the outdoors, ethical treatment of bears, you wi [...]

    6. Fun, fun book. I needed a book to read on the airplane and this kept me engaged. It really was a fun mystery--by that I meant that it made me laugh out loud in parts and kept me on the edge of my seat in others. The characters were clever and felt so real to me. Loved the ideological battle between the two polar opposites--neither of whom ever seemed to be caricatures. Warburton wrote them in such a way that they had human dignity even though they were funny and each a bit excessive. She's quite [...]

    7. I liked this story, especially Aunt Iris and Russ. The mystery was well-told and unfolded at just the right pace. However, I didn't love the main character, Penny. She seemed such a panicky flake, that I was usually frustrated by her actions. The moments where she does show courage didn't seem very believable after all her fretting and fainting. This book would have been fairly perfect without her.

    8. I really enjoyed this book--engaging characters and the obvious knowledge of the Yellowstone area that the author has. The story kept me interested--it's light reading, you can get through it quickly. The only problem is that this essentially self-published book needs a really good editor. Lots of typos and a couple of continuity issues that should have been resolved. But still an enjoyable read.

    9. This book was so painful to get through. First of all, there so many typos in the book, it was if it wasn't even proofread. Then the writing style was so abrupt--not a lot of depth into the characters and situations. Lots of names were used without going into any detail. Thought a child had written the book. Sorry to the author. Won't be reading any more from this author.

    10. Oh my goodness! Who's the good guy and who's the bad? I really enjoyed environmentalist Aunt Iris' feisty entanglement with Russ Rupert. I worried for niece Penny and the attempts on her life. The suspense was thrilling and caught me completely by surprise.

    11. This is a good book. Bears are being killed in Yellowstone National Park. A female ranger stumbles over a dead bear while being shot at after she finds some bear lure. When the park rangers go to find the bear, there is no evidence of it. It is an interesting story. My daughter and I both liked it.

    12. I read this in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. When Penny, a park ranger at Yellowstone, stumbles onto the scene of a bear poaching and is shot at too things will never be the same. Who can she trust? A very fun read!

    13. Maybe I missed the mark on this one, but I just did not like it. I couldn't get behind the characters and couldn't get behind the crisis either. That said, the writing was pretty good and the story was very clean and well laid out. This one just wasn't for me.

    14. A very engaging and very clean story. I enjoyed it. This is an LDS author and there is no mention of any LDS religious references.

    15. The story rates five stars. It's fun and suspenseful. The copy editing could use some work. There are too many typos, grammar errors, etc.

    16. I love a book that has you guessing who the "good guys" and "bad guys" are. This one did not disappoint! It was a great readry hard to put down!

    17. I loved this book! When I finally sat down to read it I finished it very quickly! I highly recommend this!
