Cold Case Connection is another page-turner from Dana Mentink who in my opinion is an expert writer. I especially enjoy her suspense novels. Once again she has written a tale that held my attention to the very end and I was reluctant to put it down to attend to mundane things like housework.
The steady plot dropped plenty of hints in just the right places yet I didn’t manage to solve the mystery on my own until it was revealed within the story. Plenty of action and suspense kept those pages turning. I loved the sparks between Sergio and Helen despite the initial conflict and distrust. Both characters were well-rounded with unresolved guilt feelings that drove them to find the murderer of Sergio’s sister and the possible connection to a death in the past.
I thoroughly enjoyed this riveting suspense with a strong hint of romance. It was fun to touch base with characters from earlier books in the series. I look forward to future releases by this author.

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!
