For fans of cold cases, desert settings and cowboys
Missing in the Desert by Dana Mentick brings action-packed drama, suspense and danger to a desert setting. Mara Castillo and her brother are attacked when visiting the ranch Levi Duke bought. With Seth in the hospital, Mara decides to help Levi keep the ranch afloat. But someone doesn’t want her in town, and she starts to connect the attacks to her sister that went missing and was presumed dead.
Lots of action in this story made me a fan. I’ve never read anything by Dana Mentick, but I’m sure I’ll read more. From a fantastic setting to the mystery of Mara’s sister, the book kept me totally entertained from start to finish. I think this is probably one of the only cowboy books I’ve read, but I loved Levi Duke. His quiet yet steady mannerism was the perfect match for Dana’s feistiness. Great characters and an intriguing plot line made this an enjoyable story.
5 stars (I loved it, couldn’t put it down)
5 stars (Non-stop edge-of-your-seat suspense from start to finish)
