Mystery Bones Near Caddo Lake Identified
Authorities Close To Arrest
Some might say the prodigal son has returned to Uncertain, Texas, but not the prodigal himself. Will McClain is nobody's son. As a kid he was on his own until the day Frannie Granger took him in. For a while he was part of a family. Then Frannie disappeared.
Nearly twenty years later, her remains are discovered by an archaeologist named Tessa Lang. And Will, now a Texas Ranger, makes a vow to find Frannie's killer. He's a man of his word, so nothing--not even losing the chance to start a new family with Tessa, or the fact that his foster brother Jed is the prime suspect--will stop him.
This is a book that is in a triolgy by 3 different authors. The other author's are: Roz Denny Fox and K.N. Casper if you would like to read about the other characters. You do not really need to read the others to enjoy this book.
This takes place in East Texas, which is very wooded, unlike most of Texas, so the setting is different.
A good summertime, light reading.
Texas Ranger Will McClain learns two months after the newspaper published the story that the bones of Frannie Granger were found near Uncertain, Texas. Unable to ignore what happened to his beloved foster mother, Will travels to Uncertain where he stops archeologist Tessa Lang, discoverer of the remains of Frannie,from continuing her dig.
The real shock to Will is to realize Sheriff Fielder believes his foster brother Jed Louis killed Frannie. Will refuses to believe that and plans to learn the truth about who killed Frannie. Still, Will admits all the evidence makes it seem as Jed is guilty, and though it alienates him from his foster sister Emma, he will do the job, even arresting his foster brother. However, to his and her amazement, Will and Tessa soon fall in love, but even that will not stop Will from his obsession to find out who killed Frannie.
The Third and final Tale in the "Return to East Texas" miniseries, A MAN OF HIS WORD, is a powerful climax to a strong romantic suspense mini-series. The story line combines a warm relationship drama with an engaging police procedural. Lead characters and other cast members return to round out a terrific book and trilogy.
