We have excitement, a sub plot, lots of twists and turns and are able to catch up with favourite characters from the previous books. Whilst the book is suspenseful there is humour too with the underlying tension of old lovers reuniting.
Harper and Allie are both likeable characters with a previous history and as the blurb says he is town bad boy turned detective and she is the daughter of the town thief who left town years before when Harper dumped her.
On the night of her return a murder is committed and Allie finds herself arrested by Harper as the main suspect. I would not wish to say more in case I spoil the plot.
This is a great book and well worth the 5 stars. I hope we do not have to wait so long to visit Broslin Creek again.
(WARNING: Some spoilers ahead, but I won't reveal the ending.) Our heroine (Allie Bianchi) is a historical reenactor who returns to her hometown to impersonate Annie Oakley at an event put on by the Broslin Historical Society. When her car gets stuck in a snowbank on her way into town, she's picked up by our hero (Harper Finnegan), a handsome police detective and Allie's ex lover. He'd broken her heart ten years earlier, so he's the last person she wants to see. But she has no choice after he finds blood and bars of gold bullion in the trunk of her car, and the owner of those bars (Chuck Lamm) is found dead in his basement, shot in the face. Allie is the logical suspect, so--on the night of her arrival--Harper arrests her for murder.
It turns out that Lamm was a "prepper"--someone who prepares for a catastrophic disaster by stockpiling food, weapons, ammunition, gold bars and silver coins. Ten of Lamm's old buddies belonged to his prepper club and had access to his safe; several also had a contentious relationship with Lamm. When Allie is cleared of the murder charge, Harper focuses his investigation on the old men. The plot drags along as he interviews and clears these guys until finally, only one name remains on his list of suspects. He zeroes in on Dicky Poole--an old guy who preys on young girls--and closes his mind to other possibilities.
There's a bit of excitement when Allie is injured by a hit and run driver; she's also assaulted and almost kidnapped by her crazy ex boyfriend. Harper orders her to move into his place for her safety, but he's so focused on arresting Dicky Poole that he fails to protect her from the real killer. And that's where the real excitement begins--when the book is nearly over.
I have to admit, those final chapters are pretty darn suspenseful. Our plucky heroine is brave and resourceful--every bit as capable as Annie Oakley or Calamity Jane. I really liked Allie. Harper, on the other hand, comes across as overbearing and inflexible. I thought Allie deserved a better man, especially after that one tepid sex scene. If you're looking for even a hint of steam, you sure won't find it here!
This isn't a bad story, and I may decide to revisit the folks of Broslin in another book in this series. As usual, kudos for flawless proofreading and limited profanity. Three stars overall.
Oh boy, this latest visit to Broslin Creek starts off with raging storm and the “storm” just picks up from there! Detective Harper Finnegan appeared in the prior Broslin Creek books very much in the background. Well, he is front and center in this one, back on the police beat with a murder to solve, an ex-girlfriend to clear as a suspect and a close Irish family that is all up in his business. Finally getting Harper’s backstory was a fun gift for all Broslin Creek fans – not only was there the trademark smooth writing and perfect plotting of author Dana Marton, but she gave us one of the wittiest smart-a** heroines for the ages. Allie Bianchi, professional historical re-enactor, and Broslin Creek native, is not exactly greeted warmly by her hometown. The daughter of a con-artist and thief, the Finnegans blame her for leading their saintly Harper astray and nearly ruining his life. Everyone remembers her as the daughter of a criminal. But Allie holds her head up, wrapped her Grizzly coat around her and just let the bon mots fly! The only thing sharper that her mind is her tongue, and Harper certainly is not shielded from that:
Are you warm enough?” Harper turned the knob on the dashboard to crank of the heat.
“Like I’m sitting in hell with the devil.”
Oh yes, the Mistress of the Best Lines Marton (you must read the opening sentence of Flash Fire NOW!) is back with Allie as the perfect character to deliver. I cannot believe I am going to write this, but Deathmarch may now be my favorite book of the series! Action, adventure, a second-chance romance, a crime I could not solve, all perfectly flowing across the pages. I always know I will have an excellent read from Ms. Marton, and I am already awaiting her next book!
