This is the first in Patricia Bradley’s “Natchez Trace Park Rangers” series and it is also the first book I’ve read by this author. This book was definitely heavier on the suspense than the romance to me. I thought that Patricia Bradley did a good job of developing her characters in this novel as well as making several people look like they could be the guilty party. Though some say that she made it obvious who the bad guy was from too early in the book, I felt like she did throw some things in that made it so you could have questioned it a little. Of course for me personally, I do not mind if a can easily figure out who did it early on in the book. It does not take the joy of reading the book away from me. So if you enjoy reading books that are suspenseful whether or not you can tell who the villain is early on, then I would say this book is for you. I will definitely be reading more books by Patricia Bradley.
