Colorado's Redstone Ridge is a place of extraordinary beauty, but this rugged mountain wilderness harbors a horrifying secret. When a charred body is discovered in a shallow grave on the ridge, officer Mattie Cobb and her K-9 partner, Robo, are called in to spearhead the investigation. But this is no ordinary crime - and it soon becomes clear Mattie has a close personal connection to the dead man.

I love the Timber Creek K-9 series. I hope Margaret Mizushima keeps writing this awesome series forever. She does a great story without vulgar words or sex or over the top violence so if your like me and don’t like listening to soul harming content which a lot of writers seam to use now get this book and all the other Timber Creek K-9 books she has written.

Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down.

I could not even finish this book I tried 3 time but I just couldn’t. I didn’t like Jazz at all she sounds like a immature teenager who needs to grow up. She is supposed to be so smart but her actions were so stupid. There is nothing to like about her at all. Don’t waste your money.

Disappointed by this book. Plot was far fetched and boring. She kept bouncing around way too much. I’m not sure why all authors feel that they need to add the F word to every new book they write but beware there are a lot of them.

Homicide detective Frost Easton doesn't like coincidences. When a series of bizarre deaths rock San Francisco - as seemingly random women suffer violent psychotic breaks - Frost looks for a connection that leads him to psychiatrist Francesca Stein. Frankie's controversial therapy helps people erase their most terrifying memories...and all the victims were her patients.

This book was very interesting. I thought I had it figured out but was surprised how it went down. The best thing about this book was NO F bombs. I'm so sick of starting a good book only to find out that the language is so crude I really hate hearing the F word. It seam like every new book that comes out the author feels like they have to throw in some token F words to make it "gritty". Glad this one didn't.

Suddenly thrust into the role of primary caretaker for her family following the tragic death of her husband, Ellie Robbins is appointed to serve out his term as sheriff of their rural Tennessee mountain town. The year is 1936, and her role is largely symbolic except for the one task that only a sheriff can do: execute a convicted prisoner.

If you like a story with no mystery, uninteresting people and no reason to like or care about them then this book is for you. If not look elsewhere. Try one of Sharyn McCumbs other books they are very good just not this one.
