Deadly Target is book two in the Rocky Mountain Courage series, yet it can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel if you have not read book one in the series.
This story had some great twists and turns in it, some that I didn’t see coming but yet made sense when I stepped back and looked at the overall events. There were fast moving sections but also a lot of puzzling out of the clues which required digging into events of the past while missing some key information.
I liked the two main characters and felt especially bad for Nathan, who had dealt with such heartbreak when Erin broke off their relationship years earlier. The tension between these two characters as they worked together seemed just right. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Criminal psychologist Erin Larson’s dreams of a successful career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her own life in a boating accident on Puget Sound and then learns that her mother tried to commit suicide. She leaves her job as a criminal psychologist to care for her mother in Montana. At least she is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on solving missing persons cold cases.
Nathan Campbell’s father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin’s help to solve the case. She’s good at what she does. The only problem? She’s his ex.
As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted–and that the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.
The race is on for the truth in this gripping and complex tale of suspense, intrigue, and murder from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard.
