Join author Sara Sue Hoklotubbe in a discussion of her most recent Sadie Walela mystery, Betrayal at the Buffalo Ranch. Margaret Coel, New York Times best selling author, describes the book as “a compelling, tautly written, and hard-to-put-down mystery. Betrayal at the Buffalo Ranch takes you takes you into the lives and cultures of modern-day Cherokees, all the while keeping you guessing and turning the pages until the very end.”

Join your friends and meet new ones in a Zoom book discussion group. Sara Sue will begin the discussion talking about her writing career and the Sadie Walela mystery series. Then the participants will join smaller groups for a more intimate conversation among themselves about the book. It will be a time to connect with new and old friends and learn more about contemporary Cherokee life and the land they live on.

“Hoklotubbe keeps getting better.”—Publishers Weekly

“Oklahoma native Hoklotubbe once again shows evildoing in the area of her childhood home.

A deep feeling for both the country and its inhabitants adds authenticity to her cunning tale.”—Kirkus

“When a fascinatingly disagreeable character is killed by rifle shot, the challenge for Lance and Sadie is sifting through the range of characters who had diverse and compelling reasons to want him dead. Betrayal at the Buffalo Ranch races to a climax like a stampeding herd and leaves the reader simultaneously satisfied and wanting the next Sadie Walela story. Sara Sue Hoklotubbe gets better with each book; Betrayal at the Buffalo Ranch is her best yet.” Anne Hillerman, author of the New York Times best selling Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito mysteries
