My Thoughts:

I have read several of author Mentink’s books and some have had me laughing aloud, others have held me in suspense, but this one, Danger on the Ranch, was downright creepy. What would you do if your brother was a serial killer, escapes from prison, his ex-wife comes to you for help, and you both are being hunted by him? That is how this story starts off and it does not let up on the suspense or the action throughout.

There was one particular part where the bad brother is speaking to both of them and not only did the characters get chills, but I got chills as well. That is a talented author who can make me laugh out loud in one book and give me the creeps in another. This was probably one of the scariest Love Inspired Suspense books I have yet read, but it was a good one. I do recommend it – you just might not want to read it before bed or be prepared to sleep with the lights on.

I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

More from Dana

We’re kicking off a new cowboy series, but this one is going to take you for a wild ride! Set on a ranch that’s sandwiched between the sea and the hills required me to do some on site research of course! I spent quite a while in this gorgeous area of California, looking for cattle. (You can see the zany results in my video.) I found the cattle, and also the perfect setting for this first book. It’s a creepy one, I’ll warn you, as hero Mitch Whitehorse comes face to face with the serial killer brother he sent to prison….and his desperate ex sister in law. Saddle up and enjoy the story! God bless!
