This series is just plain fun to read.
And so we meet up with our favorite heroine Lalla Bains, tall, blond and beautiful ex-model turned crop-duster from Modesto, California all the way in Wishbone, Arizona: `I wasn't supposed to be in Wishbone, Arizona, fearfully scouring the desert for my missing father. I was supposed to be on my honeymoon, married at last to my sweetie, Sheriff Caleb Stone.' That is the manner in which Dahlke has mastered the mystery genre - twists and turns with a huge dollop of humor and fun despite the evil derring-do of her encountered characters. Lalla finds her father in a mine pit atop a corpse who happens to be the local police chief. And as always with Dahlke's stories other coincidental deaths occur - this time a young woman artist - and Lalla is convinced the two murders are connected. The altar deserting Caleb arrives (much to Lalla's consternation) and ends up assisting Lalla in the investigation of the two murders. This is enough of a synopsis to lead any reader (especially if already a RP Dahlke fan) to grab this speedy read and escape reality for Dahlke's far more preposterous and entertaining world.
Dahlke is a polished storyteller, having that innate sense of the need for humor inserted into her mysteries that helps not only propel them along, but also keeps our attention during the rest stops. And while producing suspense about a very complicated crime she lets her story breathe with relationships - family, friends, loves - that allows us to build faith in the somewhat quirky character of Lalla Bains, a trait that practically guarantees that readers will follow the other books in this Dead Red Mysteries series. This is a very strong, immensely satisfying, idiosyncratic and entertaining mystery novel. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, September 14
The long term patrons of Roxanne's Truck Café have had a couple of pools going on whether and when Lalla would wed her long term partner in crime Sheriff Caleb Stone, as she is wedlock shy, having tried it many times. Finally naming the day, when the prospective bridegroom is an hour and a half late, his bride has fled,.
Opting out of Modesto California as her Dad has sold the Aero-Ag business and intends raising milking goats, (and I can't say I blame her)our heroine lights out of Modesto California to a property in Arizona with an outside latrine and coyotes. A wedding present from Auntie Mae. You have to wonder whether she has Lalla's best interests at heart.
Dad falls down a mine shaft where he is keeping company with a corpse, who turns out to be the Sheriff of Wishbone, where they now reside. Suffice to say our gal has a talent for solving crimes. Nothing daunted, Caleb turns up and the hunt for a killer is on.
This is the beginning of the story, so you can see you're in for an Abu Dahbi Desert Challenge car rally read. And you get it as they uncover a drug trafficking ring.
I'm not one for spoiling a reader's enjoyment of a book by detailing the story. The author produces another cracking good yarn for her fans.
Buy a copy, hold on to your hats and thoroughly enjoy yourself.
