This is another good inspirational romantic suspense from Mentink. Felicia is a good heroine. Caught off guard with a possible relationship heavy with responsibility, she steps up the the task. She is brave in the face of potential harm. And she is very resourceful when in danger.
But this is really the story of Jude, the last family member to be highlighted in this series. He is plagued with fears of becoming like his irresponsible father. That is an obstacle he will have to overcome for the possibility of romance. We wonder if Mr. Judy will be able to do so. (You have to read the book to find out how he acquires the name.)
While this book is the sixth in a series and closes out the family series, it reads quite well on its own. It is a good suspense novel for those who like an exploration of character thought along with a good faith message.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
I have reviewed all of the books in this series and you can read the reviews: Framed in Death Valley, Missing in the Desert, Death Valley Double Cross, Death Valley Hideout, and Christmas Crime Cover-Up.
About the Author
More from Dana
At last! We’ve arrived at the final book in the Desert Justice series! It seems like just yesterday I was finishing book one, about cousin Beckett Duke who was falsely imprisoned. Then we met cowboy Levi and his twin Willow, dog lover Austin, donkey rescuer Nora and FINALLY sheriff Jude Duke gets his story! I am a fan of a hero with some miles under his belt, aren’t you? Could it be because I’ve got more than a few under mine? Ending this series is bittersweet because I am thrilled that the Dukes all received their happy endings, but I’ll miss writing about their adventures in Death Valley. Hope you’ll come along on my next series. (Could be there are bloodhounds in our fictional future!)
