The heroine is three dimensional, and the plot is good. The love story part felt sketchy and uninvolving. This was my first taste of the series, and I enjoyed it enough to make me interested in reading more.
this is the 6th book in the Joanna Brady Mystery series. very exciting!
Sheriff Joanna Brady deals with high-powered weapons as her "love life" with Butch heats up. I really enjoyed this book.
I enjoyed this mystery immensely. It is full of quick action, with many murder cases coming in on top of each other--all for Cochise County in Arizona in the hottest time of the summer. The County's Medical Examiner is away on his honeymoon, causing Sherriff Joanna Brady no option but to work with the M. E. from the next county over. They get along like oil and water, but since they must work together, they finally come to a workable truce. This is a case that has the Sheriff and all her Deputies, plus the M E running full out for the week trying to apprehend the killer before he does more damage than he already has. There are also personal matters pressing in on Joanna during the whole week that she has to deal with. All in all, this is an action filled fast read. I gave it a 5 star rating.
