Checking Out

Keene Tempest is finally living his ideal life. He's going to school to get his criminal justice degree and working part time for the LAPD, nothing could make him happier. But life is about to change drastically for Keene. His mother dies and all of his siblings insist that Keene come to the small Wyoming town where she lived and run the small hotel that she was running before her death. Keene really doesn't want to, but his siblings convince him that it was his mother's last wish, and who could refuse that, at least for a while. His first day he meets the lovely Officer Chaille Donovan and gets his first clue that his mother's death was anything but natural. This makes him curious, who would have wanted his sweet mother to be dead? Uncertain, he knows that he's going to have to start looking into some things, which works out really well when the police chief offers him a part time job. But when his brother, Sean, is murdered in the hotel, Keene knows somehow that someone out there is after his family and that someone will stop at nothing to see them all dead. Will he be able to protect his family, himself, and the lovely Chaille from harm?

I love Clair Poulson's books! He has such a way with writing mysteries that you never know just which direction the bad guy is going to come from next. This book was no different, and what added even more to the fun was that there were multiple bad guys and you never knew just which direction one was going to come from or even which of them it would be. That made it so that I was guessing as to who the killer was right up until the last page. I love the way this author is able to add just a hint of romance to the books, so that it's not all death, and suspense. I can't wait to read his next book, I hope that he keeps them coming!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
