"You see, Patty thought she'd tie the story into the Arabian horse world." Facebook page

So, maybe in relation to horse racing?

Or raising...
We've had our toad for the 2020s, it's got to get better from here!

True. I wonder how Charles and Anna could get mixed up with trouble involving horses.

Over on the other side of the pond, Dick Francis wrote a lot of books like that. Skulduggery can abound.

Sure, but what would it have to do with Werewolves?

My first thought is that horses would be very nervous around werewolves. The horses at Peter's and Honey's place suggest that werewolves could work with horses. Dead heat and racing makes sense.

A werewolf with a gambling addiction involved in the horse racing industry?

Charles did say at one point that he preferred horses to car, so between the two it's seems likely that horses could at least get use to werewolves.

That seems like more of a problem for the local alpha to handle. (Unless it is the local alpha with the problem!)

We may remember that Charles is more comfortable horseback than in a car, and has one or two of his own...

I remembered about Charles preferring horseback to car, and that he recalled travelling cross-country with his grandfather and others by horse.  I didn't remember that he currently has horses.  Perhaps they go there to look at a horse for Anna, and while they are there... um... events unfold.  (OK, just revealed why I am much more of a reader than a writer!  LOL )

That would be possible, although as I doubt Anna has ridden, an Arab wouldn't be a good first horse for her.  This is per what Patty & Mike have said about temperment of the breed.

Of course, she may have read The Black Stallion as a child and have her heart set on and Arab. I know I sure did after reading that book!

That's possible.  Not that I necessarily see Charles giving in to her on that without some explanation of why it's not a good idea.

Charles probably has more experience with quarter horses or mustangs. He may not know that it's a bad idea.  :-whistle

This is true, and something I hadn't considered.  :)
