Missing in the Desert

 


Five years ago, her sister disappeared…
Now someone is coming for her.

Who would believe that Mara Castillo’s sister—missing and presumed dead—suddenly sent a one-word text? Now Mara wants answers, even if it means stepping into a killer’s sights with her brother’s best friend, rancher Levi Duke, as her only protection. But with someone who has everything to lose after her, uncovering a long-buried secret could save her life…or claim it.

 My thoughts: I have enjoyed many of Dana Mentink's stories, since her characters are well written and I can anticipate a suspenseful read (I've only read her mysteries!;)). This book did not disappoint. I felt so bad for Mara, whose brother is in a coma and now she is receiving a text from her sister who has been missing for several years. On top of that, Mara is in danger and she has to race to unravel the mysteries around her.

This is an excellent, faith filled story that I enjoyed reading! I highly recommend picking up a copy of this story.

I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.

More from Dana

Hello, readers! Boy am I excited! Since the virus-that-not-shall-be-named is being brought under control, I am cautiously venturing out again and our first vacation spot will be a return to Death Valley. Papa Bear and I love the amazing diversity of Death Valley, from the salt flats, to the sand dunes, mountains, and everything in between. Writing this book allowed me to relive the incredible topography, as well as let my mind run loose imagining a cold case that warms up to fiery levels in this ferocious climate. Part of this story revolves around “Camp Town Days” which was inspired by the Encampment Days, an event held in November by a volunteer group called the Death Valley 49ers that aims to capture the pioneer spirit with their wagon rides, parade, poetry readings, a vendor show, and historical talks. I hope you can feel the desert wind in your face and hear the distant howl of the coyote as you dive into the second book in the Death Valley Justice series.
