Great Read

The Stranger at the Door (Billy Jo McCabe Mystery #6) was a great read by Lorhainne Eckhart. Mark Friessen is the newly appointed chief of police. He is settling into his new role when he uncovers the story of a woman forced to marry the man that killed her family. She knocks on Mark’s door looking for help. Mark and Billy Jo find themselves in a web of lies that test their complex relationship. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Policing and Corruption in a Small Town

I was intrigued by this story about a sheriff and a social worker in a small town.
When a young girl shows up on their doorstep with a tragic story one evening, the fallout turns everything topsy turvy.
It's hard to tell who are the villains and who are the heroes (beyond the obvious of the two main characters). Maybe that's because when it comes right down to it, there aren't any good guys in this one, and the surprises are kind of expected. None the less, the tale does take some interesting twists and turns and there are enough "hooray for the good guys" moments to make it worthwhile.
I liked it, and might even have a look at some more of the series.

Never answer the door to a stranger

Whoah. Never answer the door to a stranger. You just never know where it might lead. A thirteen-year-old bride. A sixteen-year-old who wants to leave her husband. Also that he killed her parents. What is the truth? A fixer. A possessive husband. Tales. A hole getting deeper. Great story.
