Reviews:

Love the characters in Riverbend and the author make them come alive. You feel like you know them and are routing for them throughout the entire book. Charlotte is a very strong, single minded woman whose only desire is to help women so they do not fall to the same fate as her sister. As the story unfolds, you learn more about her and her sister. Agent Brady Lasiter is someone who has no desire to fall for anyone, he just wants to do his job of protecting people and bringing the criminals to justice. They make for a very interesting combination that even though they want the same results cannot seem to work together. There are quite a few surprises that I never saw coming. I really enjoyed this next story of the folks in the town of Riverbend. I will not give you any spoilers, so you will have to read it for yourself.”~5 Stars Jan N.

“This story proves dreams do come true! Taking on the Cartel is dangerous and difficult but Charlotte proves it can be done, but it may cost her. A great series!”

“I like this series. It would have been nice to read the second one before the third but it was a story in and of itself that was easy enough to follow. Some of the supporting characters were developed in previous books, however. If you haven’t read those it leaves some gaps in the thought process.”~5 Stars Big Lake
