Editorial Reviews

Phillip Tomasso III
A prequel to the popular series featuring female Deputy Officer, Temp Crabtree, Deadly Trail proves to be a solid and clever, cozy-mystery. Marilyn Meredith style is poised and efficient, and her storytelling ability is comparable to anyone writing in the genre. Meredith has written a taut, compact mystery with three-dimensional characters. She knows how to draw her readers in with short chapters and tension-building scenes.
Molly Martin
Deadly Trail is filled with intrigue right from the outset as Nick explains each of the deadly cultivars growing along the Nature Trail. Tempe soon learns that one after another of the staff and owners of the Inn are involved in romantic entanglements. Jealousy, lies, deceit all are present. The reader is carried along on a wild ride of excitement until the killer is discovered.
Chanita Davis
This book is a murder mystery for the ages. It has so many colorful characters, and it makes it even more interesting when almost all of them have a motive. The detailed descriptions make for an easy read. This book has all of the makings of the perfect book, and it keeps you guessing all the way to the end. There's never been a mystery like this, and there's a good chance that there never will be again.

    Deputy Tempe Crabtree arrests Nick Two John for slashing the tires of a logging truck during a protest. On the way to the jail, he repeatedly begs for his freedom. He believes that with her Native American heritage, she should understand she should understand what the loggers represent and not arrest him. Then he offers to reveal a secret information if she¿ll release him. While she is curious to know the information, she does not give in. She begins to regret that decision when Andre Donato, owner of the Bear Creek Inn, collapses and dies in the kitchen when Tempe and her minister boyfriend Hutch are there eating dinner. It is ruled a heart attack until another worker collapses with similar symptoms. She is saved, but it becomes evident that both people were poisoned. The police center their investigation on Nick Two John. Deputy Crabtree is convinced he didn¿t do it, but she is soon pushed out of the investigation. She comes up with other suspects with good motives and begins to investigate on her own. When she becomes the target of the killer, she knows she¿s close, but can she discover the identity of the killer before the killer takes care of her? I highly recommend this book. It is the first I¿ve read in this series. It won¿t be the last. Deputy Crabtree is a very likeable character. Her son and fiancé really add to the story. The townspeople do too. I like the setting. It is a very fast and enjoyable cozy read.
