    Giving up- boring & has racist under tones

    Im almost 200 pages in and still havent gotten a feel for any of the characters. This book is slooooow moving and only the second Ive ever put down begore finishing. The most prevalent theme in this book is the constant negative attitude toward Mexicans. Found the constant racist commentary VERY off-putting and frustrating. Writing that illegal immegrants are the cause for increased drug usuage is ignorant & paints a false picture. Increased drug prescence is the result of cartels & drug mules. Immigrants are often average, sober people looking to escape the danger in MX for a better life. Not saying illegal immegration is ok, but they arent responsible for the cartels! Its also stated in the book that when Mexican characters in the book look away from the main character, he assumes them to be illegals.

    I dont feel this author is simply trying to paint a picture of modern day Texas. Instead I felt this was the authors personal opinion & prejudice coloring the book.

    Will NOT be finishing this boring, poorly written book!

    An exciting second chance at love police procedural

    When Rusty Joplin and Elena Ryder were teens in SALVATION, TEXAS, they fell in love, but her wealthy influential family ended their relationship. Shortly afterward Rusty left town. Three years ago after time in the military, he came home to become a deputy sheriff now he is the Sanderson County sheriff having won the election.---------------- When Elena¿s sister Carla Ryder is found dead, her husband Gary calls the hospital not 911 or law enforcement. If deputy sheriff Cheryl Hopkins had not intercepted the call, a potential crime might have been erased as it is the murder location has been devastated by a horde off visitors by the time Rusty arrives. Rusty cannot accept that an experienced horsewoman like Carla would make a rookie¿s mistake and get tangled with a rope around her neck even if Gary insists the horse is dangerous in daylight Rusty sees a very calm tame steed. As he investigates a possible murder with Gary as the prime suspect, he gets no cooperation from the family except for Lena, who he still loves.--------------- SALVATION, TEXAS is an exciting second chance at love police procedural in which her family objects to their relationship and to his investigation. The story line is fast-paced as Lena helps Rusty with the case by opening doors for him that would have remained shut tight, as one revelation after another occurs. Readers will enjoy Anna Jeffrey¿s fine thriller in which homicide serves as a matchmaker.-------------- Harriet Klausner
