What an AMAZING mystery!
Tangled with so many suspects you really don't know who did it until the very end where clues are dropped making you suspect, but not really knowing, until the masks are down and the killer is pointing a gun at the hero.
SO. SO. SO. GOOD!
I couldn't put it down!
Keene Tempest just wants to be a cop, but with his mother's passing he takes up the management of the family hotel.
When one of the local police officers stops to introduce herself, she tells Keene that his mother's death might not be as it seems.
Keene's police-trained mind goes into play and he starts asking the townsfolk questions.
After someone else is then murdered in the hotel, Keene sets out on a journey to find the killer.
But to do that he will also have to solve an old-case armed robbery, and discover the persons behind the multiple shootings that are now happening.
Along the way his family feuding will be mended and a relationship will start with the beautiful local officer named Chaille Donovan.
You will LOVE this story!
