I have found Dana Mentink to be a multifaceted author. It is quite amazing to me how one woman can write such hilarious romances on one hand and turn around and pen absolutely riveting suspense on the other. In my opinion, Danger on the Ranch may be her most suspenseful novel yet.
Former US Marshal Mitch Whitehorse was responsible for putting his brother in prison but unfortunately that brother has managed to escape and is determined to extract his revenge on Mitch. Jane Reyes, Mitch’s brother’s ex-wife and the child she has kept a secret need protection from the brother who is a psychopathic serial killer. Mitch has always believed that Jane was involved in the murders but in order to protect his nephew, he must trust her.
Wow! Danger on the Ranch was so suspense filled that I could not put it down and read it pretty much in one sitting. Character development was excellent, especially Mitch who struggled with judging his brother’s ex-wife while battling guilt for not recognizing (or ignoring) how dangerous his brother was. The relationship between Mitch and Jane developed at a believable pace even for a short mass market length book.
I loved this book and recommend that this is a must read for those who love suspense. Pick up a copy while you can!

MORE FROM DANA:
We’re kicking off a new cowboy series, but this one is going to take you for a wild ride! Set on a ranch that’s sandwiched between the sea and the hills required me to do some on site research of course! I spent quite a while in this gorgeous area of California, looking for cattle. (You can see the zany results in my video.) I found the cattle, and also the perfect setting for this first book. It’s a creepy one, I’ll warn you, as hero Mitch Whitehorse comes face to face with the serial killer brother he sent to prison….and his desperate ex sister in law. Saddle up and enjoy the story! God bless!
