    This third Liv Bergan mystery starts up right where the second one ended.  Liv's knowledge of the history and geography of South Dakota is making her more and more valuable to the FBI team working there.  Now they've presented her with the man hunting bloodhound, Bullah, and have asked her to join the FBI as the dog's tracking handler.  Liv has really been enjoying the investigative parts, but the endangering and life threatening parts make her question if she'd rather continue working in her family's limestone quarry business that she has always enjoyed.  But  Streeter, the handsome FBI agent is a tempting bonus to consider too, 

    The FBI has been investigating the Crooked Man serial killer for over ten years now, but there's not been a great deal of progress until now, when connections to the Nature's Way Concervancy group, the history of Custer's last stand, and sick and old people being murdered begins to piece together possible motives.  When Helga, who is in her last days with a battle against cancer, is attacked in a hospice, Liv's sister agrees to take her from the hospice to die in her own home. A play on words with the Biblical widow's 'mite', and Helga's widow's 'might' plays a great part in this mystery.

    More so than the first two in this series, this is largely a police procedural with lots of interesting clues coming from Liv's knowledge of South Dakota history and her watchful and inquisitive mind.  This series just gets better and better.  Can't wait for the next installment coming this year which will relate to the Noah story in the Bible.  For those who enjoy using their knowledge of other subjects when they are reading a mystery, you'll find these Liv Bergan mysteries to be a great joy to read!!

    A dead rancher, a hospitalized patient and a widow battling cancer…who wants them dead? Believing this to be the work of a long ago killer, Streeter enlists Liv’s help in catching this killer who will stop at nothing to get his prey.

    This non-stop and action-filled drama kept me in suspense, as I could not put this book down. The mystery kept me riveted to the pages with the many twists and turns and clues pointing elsewhere that I didn’t see the identity of the killer until it was too late. The author’s approach in giving us the central character’s point of view moved the story at an exhilarating pace towards a “survival of the fittest” finale that had my heart pulsing as to how it was going to end. With a finely tuned narrative and a terrific cast including Liv, Streeter and introducing Elizabeth, this was the best book yet in this fabulously thrilling series.

    Widow’s Might is the third installment in the Liv Bergen

    Widow’s Might is the third installment in the Liv Bergen mysteries. I’ll disclose that I have not had the chance to read the previous books, though I am sure I would enjoy them. With that being said, I would like to let everyone know that I wouldn’t say its necessary, but always recommended for awesomely written stories.

    This suspense filled murder mystery begins in Liv’s home state where she has found herself thrown into a decade long investigation of the Crooked Man. Belluah, the prestige trailing hound, along with the FBI, she must help to piece together the motives, the cold trails, and protect one sweet, terminally ill, woman from the killer before he can strike her dead. Can Liv, the miner, step to the plate and take command of Belluah?

    This was an awesome adventure that keeps the reader on its toes. You are given clues as you read through the story along with rich history on Custards Expedition and Little Big Horn. Entwined into it all is the plot. Rich and thick with suspense as each report comes in, new discoveries are found, or Belluah and Liv are chasing down fresh scents on cold serial cases of a killer who has killed every year for the last 12 years.

    But there is more, much more to this tale than meets the eye. While the FBI has known that the murders are connected, there are some clues that only history can tell.

    My honest opinion is that anyone 18 or older, loves mysteries, enjoys history, and likes a story that will suck you in…well yeah this book is for you. By the time I was finished {2 days}, I found myself wanting to read more. I also found myself thinking that it would make a great television show. That alone is a rarity since I don’t watch television a whole lot.
