My Review

Need a quick suspense fix?  Cold Case Connection by Dana Mentink is just what you need!

Part of the Love Inspired Suspense Inspirational Romance line, this is a quick read, but contains a full story line with plenty of action.  This is the third of Mentink's Roughwater Ranch Cowboys series, but it stands alone well.

Although she is settled in her job, Helen Pike is still haunted by the murders of her friends, twelve years apart.  The brother of one of those friends, Sergio, now a private investigator, has shown up in town to investigate on his own.

Helen was quite likable.  She took her work seriously.  She was loyal to those who had adopted her as family, and was generous and kind.  Sergio was still adjusting to his new reality as a dad to his sister's twin girls.  He was devoted to those children, and kind, as well.

The plot moved at a quick pace as Helen and Sergio searched for clues in this closed case.  There were attacks against them as they came closer to the truth, which kept the book quite suspenseful.

Those who enjoy romantic suspense will certainly enjoy this book.

I received an ARC of this book from the author, through Celebrate Lit, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

More from Dana

Cold Case Connection was really fun to write because it’s Helen’s story. She’s an intelligent, sensitive woman who is the sister to the men living on the Roughwater Ranch. Liam is her biological brother, but she’s just as close to Chad and Mitch who might as well be blood relatives. In this novel, Helen has to relive the worst moment of her teenage life, the night when a mysterious murder occurred during a teen prank. Helen is going to have to face the past in order to preserve her future. Cowboys, a case gone cold, a coastal ranch and a whole lot of danger…I hope you will enjoy the ride!
