‘Christmas Crime Cover Up’ (Desert Justice, 5) by Dana Mentink

About The Book
From USA TODAY bestselling author Dana Mentink…

A violent attack

Isn’t the homecoming she expected.

When an ATV tries to run her down in Death Valley, animal rescuer Nora Duke knows it’s a sign she never should have returned. Now she’s stuck on Seth Castillo’s ranch until Christmas with a pregnant donkey—and a criminal desperate to silence her. Facing her past is as terrifying as uncovering a killer’s twisted plan. But can Seth convince her to stay…if they live through the holidays?

From Love Inspired Suspense: Courage. Danger. Faith.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘At this point, her mother would have dropped to her knees and prayed. No way would Nora waste time with that. Prayers were for people who needed saving. Nora intended to do the saving herself.’

Boy, this one ticks all the boxes for a suspense lover like myself. Mentink hits the ground running with an action-packed story and continues throughout the book. Her characters are well developed and the plot a good one. It was good to see friends from previous books in the series also. I read it in a day! Well done!

My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. The opinion in this review is entirely my own.
