I enjoyed reading Ruff Cut A Riverview Mystery by Kasey Riley. It is well written, easy to read, and kept my attention.
I liked Sheriff Megan Hollaway and all the other folks in the town. It seems like the sort of place I would like to live. Sort of like where I do live in fact, except that there are more folks here, and not so many ranches.
Horse people are good people, as they proved by showing up to hunt for a missing kid.
I really liked that she was able to get the best of some really nasty crooks without a lot of shoot-em-up. She came up with a sneaky way to trick them. That was cool.
Good read. Especially for mystery lovers who are also animal lovers.
About the book:
Army veteran Sheriff Megan Holloway has a lot on her mind. A dog with a bellyful of smuggled diamonds, a terrified woman hiding at the Bailey’s Boarding House and a mafioso who is likely connected to both of them. What’s that city crook doing in her town, anyway?
Add to that, the man Megan’s been close to for the past year is flirting with another woman and, last night, she relived her personal nightmare of the war in Afghanistan, again…yeah, her life is just peachy. Her psychological trauma has kept her from committing to Aaron; maybe he’s given up waiting for her. Maybe he’s begun looking for a woman with less emotional baggage…
Forced to call in the proper government agencies, Megan fights to keep control of the investigation by hook or by crook. Protecting the citizens in her town is her first priority. Fortunately, she has an ace-in-the-hole the Feds don’t. The citizens of Riverview trust her and will help her any way she needs.
Formulating a plot to take down the crooks, Megan decides to play on their lack of knowledge about the denizens of the Colorado high desert, and she gives the villains just enough information. Will the trap be sprung and the leader caught? Possibly, if she can just keep the Feds from messing up her plan.
Riverview once again is the setting for this mystery. The small rural ranching town set in the high desert of Colorado where your neighbors are your friends and can be counted on to help when times get tough… or things get dangerous.
About the Author:
Kasey has been writing tales of Riverview and its inhabitants for the past four years. Each stand-alone mystery brings to life different people within the town, both good people and villains. This novel will bring the reader back to several favorite characters and introduce new—who might just be in the next Riverview story. The flavor of the book is contemporary ranch and rural town living where people depend on each other, work well together, and help as needed. The Colorado high desert and surrounding mountains provide the perfect backdrop for rugged living and independence.
I received a free book to review.
