Keeping his Colorado town safe is the lawman’s most heartfelt mission. But protecting the innocent Brenda from a deadly threat will test Dwight’s limits as a law officer and as a man.
Eagle Mountain Murder Mystery
From the very first words, a brilliant opening sentence, I was intrigued and enthralled by this story. These Eagle Mountain murder mysteries have proven to be entertaining, action and passion filled tales that with constant plot twists mesmerize the minds of the readers.
Deputy Dwight Prentice, the solid, hardworking, straight-talking, cowboy cop has been attracted to Brenda since their days in high school. Life happened and they never got the chance to see if there was something more into the attraction, until now that Brenda is a widower and her life seems to be in danger.
Brenda has faced more tragedy and trouble in her life than most people experience through their lifetime. Yet she is a strong, surviving woman. She has held herself together by the sheer will of her mind at times, understandably guarding her heart against more disappointments and sorrow. To let her guard down would take some time, to trust again even more effort. But deputy Dwight might be just the person to slip through her reservations, at least the temptation to let him into her heart and soul is strong.
The twist in the plot kept coming. The threats to the museum and to Brenda are constant, and the crimes, petty malice towards her are puzzling. Everything seems to be connected to the book on the auction at the museum, but is the book also connected to the missing developer Henry Hake and the land he owns at the edge of the town?
The suspense is alluring and hooked me into the investigation, there are still many curious questions left unanswered towards the development and Henry Hake, unsolved crimes, and I can't wait to read the next installment in the series.
Brenda and Dwight's tangible connection, the nearly visible zizzle of the attraction, was filled with passion and well balanced with the adorable sweetness of the fragile trust that is developing between them. The constant threats towards Brenda kept me on my toes while I was sighing and swooning over Dwight guarding the love of his life.
I love the world the author has created in the small town in Eagle Mountain. The charming characters are well thought out, the ardent romances developing swept me off my feet, while the gripping tension from the riveting suspense is edgy, dangerous, and deadly. A must-read series for sure!
