This time round Maria returns to California, trusting her cop boyfriend will get her through immigration without problems, but she is arrested for the murder of her husband.
It is her business partner, Darya, who comes to Maria's aid by getting the right kind of people to take action.
There are several romantic story lines with some very sexy scenes and great chemistry between the partners, there is excellent and convincing court room drama, legal and illegal plotting and scheming and the return of characters from the first two books. The dialogue is cleverly interspersed with the characters' thoughts, lending more perspective and spice to the scenes.
Harman has made this installment a firework of action, romance and suspense. As with her previous books she understands to build her characters in a colouful and intriguing way, always poignant and witty. Well paced, written with excellent attention to detail and a talent for fleshing out the scenes with the right amount of detail this really hit all my buttons.
Highly recommended for fans of well written crime fiction.

This is my first exposure to mystery Author Dianne Harman and I would have to say that it was a pleasurable experience. "Cornered Coyote" is the third novel in this fictional series and even though I haven't read the first two, it is a stand-alone book as the reader is adeptly introduced to each character as they appear in the storyline.
Maria Brooks is one of the main characters who escapes to Provence, France to avoid prosecution for the murder of her husband Jeffrey. He is literally a "mad scientist" who develops a hormone to delay the aging process as well as Freedom, a feel-good drug or anti-depressant. Maria knows the secret formula and has promised to go into business with female tycoon, Darya Rahimi. However, while in France, Maria falls in love with a detective from the U.S. by the name of Jordan Kramer who specializes in art thief. He manages to persuade her to return home reassuring her that he's checked things out and she will not be arrested for murder. Wow...was he wrong.
In order to protect her interest in the secret formula, Darya has a vested interest in helping Maria avoid a jail sentence. She hires Slade Kelly, a PI, to help ensure that Maria gets the best lawyer in town and anything else it takes to keep her out of prison. This is when the fun really begins as Slade is a unique character with a very interesting background. He's got some pretty powerful connections. The chemistry between Darya and Slade heats up and there are more twists and turns in this novel than you can imagine. Once you get going, you won't want to miss a word of it! Mystery...suspense...romance...crime..."Cornered Coyote" pretty well has it all!

I'm Not Perfect and It's Okay
Cornered Coyote begins with the protagonist, Maria, being arrested for the murder of her husband, Jeffrey. Maria's friend, Darya, provides a large sum of money to protect Maria while she is in jail and hires a private detective to attempt to prove Maria acted in self-defense. But, as the book moves to trial, testimony points to very strong motives indicating Maria may be guilty.
I'd recommend reading all three books in the series, in consecutive order, to get the most enjoyment from the series.
I liked the pace of the book, and the characters and action.
This story includes murder, intrigue, romance, and well-written sex scenes (I might add).
The author is a master with dialogue. I don’t want to give away the story line. It is complex. There’s deception, love, mystery, even an art thief ~ everything necessary to make a great suspenseful romance novel.
The settings range widely from the U.S. to Europe. I liked the characters Darya, Maria, and the private investigator, Slade.
If you’re a crime fiction fan and like a little romance on the side, this novel will fit the bill. It’s a great read!
I would highly recommend Cornered Coyote to anyone who likes to read suspense, intrigue, and good, exciting drama. You won't be disappointed. Ms. Harman is one of the best Modern Authors of today.
A wonderful writing style, Dianne Harman kept me reading this book well into the night. I had no problem even though I started with book three.
I will be going back to read books one and two because I love these characters and Slade Kelly is now one of my favorite investigators!
If you love a good mystery with suspense, this author will not let you down!
Top international reviews
Dianne Harman manages to keep the tension going right up until the end - but with a winding ribbon of romance throughout the story, as in all of her books.
I've been waiting for this book since I read the first two in the series and it definitely didn't disappoint. Five well-earned stars.
