BAM! And the intensity got even more strained, the fifteen-year-old murder mystery haunting the law enforcement and the small town folks of the Callahan County. I am loving this binge-reading mini-series by Ms. Myers. I think the fact that the books are released so close together brings the energy even higher in the stories.
Zane North is a by the book law enforcement man. He gained his experience in the military, now running a tight team of the police force. He is dedicated, service minded, and smart. He is understanding, kindhearted, yet tough protector when needed.
Ashley has her reasons why she doesn't trust easily, and not at all when it comes to the police. Ashley and her brother Dylan had suffered more than enough after the murder fifteen years ago. This new hype about the case just brought bad and sad memories to her mind. But the Sheriff is investigating and so tempting to Ashley.
Ashley and Zane have obvious chemistry and connection. With the crazy, dangerous threating letters showing up all over the town they don't have many chances to act on the attraction, but there is no denying it, it is a palpable force in the air. The romance is clean and sweet in this tale, even though there is no doubt of the ardent emotions developing between Zane and Ashley.
The suspense is deadly dangerous, it is personal, and it seems to be connected to the old crimes. It has plot twists that shake the foundation of the characters lives, changing their future, their destinies forever.
I was glued to my kindle while reading this tale, founding it unputdownable, wanting to learn more as the story progress. It is a vigorous, potent, and compelling tale of crimes of the worst kind, and I am completely invested in finding out the solution to the cold case of the Carson Meadows Trail murder. While the books are definitely connected, they can still be read as stand-alone books if so desired.
