 My Thoughts:

I always enjoy an author Mentink book and this one was a little bit different. Yes, there was the usual suspense and the danger, but this one had a bit more of a mystery, with the who done it detective vibe running through it.

Sam is a widower not only raising his little boy alone after his late wife died of cancer, but also running their dream inn. But someone is scaring and putting his little boy, Oliver, in danger and he needs help to find out who.

Officer Daniella and her dog Zara are assigned to the case. This is not the case Daniella wants, she is posing as a nanny, and she doesn't really want a babysitting job. Due to her past, she believes she is not cut out to be with kids and she wonders if a lot of what is happening to Oliver is his imagination. However, Sam is scared for his son, and he needs for his business to pick up and he does not want his guests terrorized either.

And he has a wide range of guests, interesting ones, and anyone of them could be the culprit. Daniella is determined to get this case solved so she can move on, but when the attacks turn more dangerous, she understands there is something really sinister going on. I enjoyed this who done it suspense and growing love story between two people who were least expecting it. Especially considering they did not seem to get along too well at first.

I was provided 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

What a joy to participate in a series with seven other talented authors! A continuity series is a set of books, each written by a different author, and each with its own suspense plot along with an overarching series plot and characters. It’s a very complicated project to complete, but the fantastic part is chatting, collaborating, and sometimes commiserating with other writers. What a rare treat, since most of our work is done alone in dark rooms with computer screens and bottomless cups of coffee! This series was especially fun to write because of the whole wilderness lodge setting which is my favorite type of story. Picture it! Ancient cliff dwellings, a freak electrical storm, twenty-four hours with no power and a killer on the loose! That’s my kind of suspense novel. I hope you will enjoy this multi author series as much as we enjoyed creating it!
