Eagle Mountain Murder Mystery
A touching, invigorating, and in the rugged, romantic suspense kind of way a beautiful story of new beginnings, forgiveness, small town living, and daring to open your heart and take that leap into love, while being targeted by a murderer, and the person of your affections put you in a prison for three years for something you didn't do. Twisted? You betcha!
The charming world that the author creates with the vivid images and intriguing, charismatic small-town characters is alluring, a place where you would want to spend your time in until you realize that there's most likely a killer living amongst you. This new series has a tangled yet thrilling start, and I am delightfully fascinated about what's to come.
Sheriff Travis Walker made one big mistake at the beginning of his career that ended up Lacy Milligan being imprisoned for a murder she didn't commit. Travis has moved the heaven and earth to fix his mistakes, yet forgiveness is something he doesn't expect or ask for.
Lacy is a survivor, a strong, amazing woman who has the capacity to start anew, forget, and forgive, for her own sake as much as Travis'.
The threats and attacks towards Lacy start as soon as she comes back home, proving that someone in the small town has something to hide, and their ultimate goal is to stop the investigation to the real murderer and eliminate Lacy in the process if necessary. To survive, Lacy is going to need Travis' help and protection, no matter how resentful or how attracted she suddenly feels towards the handsome sheriff.
The tender and delicate relationship that develops between Travis and Lacy is as sweet as it is ardent. The attraction is palpable, and connection true and believable. There are issues between them, that they need to work on, and they have those difficult conversations between the intense aggression and assaults towards Lacy and the investigation. I loved the subtle, a bit sarcastic humor that is embedded into the tale, with laugh out loud oneliners when you least expect it to lighten up the gloomy, danger-filled atmosphere.
A dreamily luscious, yet gently touching, adorable, and inspiring love story in a midst of fatal, perilous action and suspense. A story that had me both sighing, smiling, and biting my nails, on the edge of my seat in dread and trepidation. I have a feeling this series is going to be a fan-favorite all the way!
