Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Winter Hawk's Legend is very special to me. The book is all about strength in family, and more importantly, how a real family is defined. It's not always about blood, but it is about love...and a touch of magic.
Each book in the Copper Canyon series will feature one of six brothers. Termed incorrigible as boys, they became lost in the foster care system after their parents passed on. Hosteen (Mister) Silver brought them back to the Rez and raised them as his own, transforming their lives.
Now, men of honor, they stand ready to meet trouble head on. 
We begin this series with Daniel Hawk. The former bad boy, now a man, lives life by his own terms...until he meets Holly Gates, a strong woman who's suddenly become the target of an unseen fanatic.
Daniel's sworn to keep her safe, but Holly has a mind of her own. Protecting her means facing a danger he's never faced before - losing his heart to a woman who has also learned how to defy the odds.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Twentyish Holly Gates runs TechTalk, Inc. providing consulting and public relations services to her clients. He largest current customer is Navaho Nation. Ahead of schedule, she takes a time out to enjoy the Mew Mexico landscape. She notices a coyote and several humans before returning to her vehicle to complete her drive. Holly begins a talk to the Navaho on extraction of natural gas when activist Clyde Keeswood interrupts her talk and lifts a chair but Navaho security specialist Daniel Hawk intervenes.

They arrange to meet for dinner in Hartley to discuss security when someone grabs her and places a rope around her throat. Daniel intervenes again. Someone obviously wanted her dead as this was not a simple mugging. She has no idea why or whom. Her Navaho POC Martin Roanhorse assigns Daniel to keep her safe as he considers her work on their behalf important. As the assaults continue with increasing intensity; in order to keep her safe and buy time to learn what is going on, Daniel takes her to his remote New Mexico cabin. Meanwhile Daniel and Holly fall in love; but he prefers soaring free like an eagle while she needs roots.

Winter Hawk's Legend is a superb Native American mystery starring a woman in peril who she has no concept as to who wants her dead or her unknown adversary's motive. Thus readers have an innocent doing an innocent thing leading to her danger mindful of Alfred Hitchcock. Daniel is a terrific bodyguard who begins to learn to follow his heart if he is to soar like an eagle. Readers will relish team Thurlo's enchanting New Mexico thriller.

This is the first book in Aimee's Copper Canyon series and if the rest of the books in the series are as "intriguing" as this one she has an excellent series. I don't know how many books she has planned for each of the brothers. This is one of the books I label as "you can't put it down until you finish". And you never know what kind of trouble the hero and heroine are going to find themselves in next. If you like mystery and intrigue you'll enjoy this book.

Hosteen Silver had taken in six foster boys during his lifetime and Daniel Hawk was one of them. Now he is a private security guard and well liked by almost everyone. He also trains security guards but as the book begins he find himself protecting Holly Gates from whoever is trying to kill her and it turns out to be quite an adventure for both of them because whoever is responsible seems to know more than he should about Holly's and Daniel's movements.

Holly Gates owned TechTalk Incorporated that provided consulting and public relations for her clients. She is presently working with a company that was planning on recovering natural gas from tribal land. There was opposition to the company doing so because of incidents of recovery projects of this kind contaminating the water in other areas. Never before has she found herself in a situation where someone was trying to kill her and she had no idea of why anyone would now. But someone was and that person knew more about Holly's movements than he should.

Winter's Hawk is not a Tony Hillerman-type story at all. Other than the setting of the Four Corners, the author has little of the style of mystery and suspense that Hillerman uses. There are very few clues given for the reader to work with. The author spends much more time developing the sexual tension between the two main characters. Hillerman spent little time with romantic interest while incorporating the tribal customs of the American Indian nations into his mysteries. I was very disappointed by the advertisement on facebook saying this would appeal to Tony Hillerman fans. I should have known when I saw the name Harlequin.

I have all Aimee Thurlo's Copper Canyon series. I have enjoyed them so much, I have put several on my KF. The characters in Aimee's books are always so interesting; they are three-dimensional. I also enjoy the peeks into Navajo ways that she includes in each story. I have read many of her books, and I can't recall one that I disliked. She always gives an exciting page-turner that you can't put down, no matter how late it gets.

A good story that caught my attention from the very beginning. With Native American traditions in the male character which I love to read about and the women he eventualy falls in love with. This is the first book in the Copper Canyon series and I encourage you to read the next 2

I am so surprised there are so many other people who liked this book, because I thought it was really terrible. The dialogue was stilted and unengaging. I could tell right from the initial conversation between Daniel and his brother that the dialogue was going to be stiff and unrealistic, and that continued through the whole book. There was some interesting history about the Navajo people and traditions thrown in, but it didn't feel integral to the story. The relationship between the main characters couldn't have been more flat. Neither one has any depth--they just seemed like broadly drawn caricatures. The author doesn't let their personalities shine through in their actions and words--she just tells the reader what they're like, but then the portrait has no richness and it's hard to believe they were falling in love. There's no sizzle either. The one sexy scene just didn't exude any passion. Some suspension of disbelief is necessary in romance novels, but I actually found myself rolling my eyes at many points in this book because stuff would just happen out of the blue and would make no sense. Really the book felt like a long string of cliches mashed up together with some encyclopedia entries and a few nonsensical plot points. I rarely ever put books down (once I start I always finish), but I definitely would have put this down if I hadn't been somewhere where I had nothing else to do but read this book. Very disappointing.
