4 STARS I have liked all three books of the Shandra Higheagle Mystery series. It was pretty easy to guess who the murder was, but there were twists in the series that surprised me. I like the relationship between Shandra and Ryan. Shandra finds her third dead body. This one was on her land and was more gruesome. She called Detective Ryan Greer directly. Shandra Higheagle is a potter. She brought her land because it has the clay on her land for her to use. Shandra has had bad luck in romance department so she is taking her time slowly with Ryan. She has dreams and sees her grandma that has deceased and the dreams have clues for the mystery. Shandra is half Indian. Detective Ryan Greer is more serious about Shandra but he is willing to take it slowly. He does take Shandra to his brother's wedding to his old girl friend. No one really likes the dead guy. He has private hunts on his land that is not all legal, sleeps around and treats his wife badly. This is a fast read and enjoyable story. I will look for more Paty Jager books in the future.

Murder is the name of the game! How many bodies can Shandra Higheagle rack up on her property? If you had more than one body that you found while walking through your property, would that make you want to move? Would you be concerned? Threatened? Especially if the corpse didn’t appear to be over a week old? Jager has an exciting third installment of the Shandra Higheagle Mysteries that will leave readers guessing until the very end. Everyone has a reason to want the victim dead, but who really did it? Shandra is back on her mountain and again finding dead bodies. While riding, she stumbles across someone who has clearly been feeding the animals for a few days…and not in a good way! She immediately alerts her detective friend, Ryan to notify him of yet another mystery for them to unveil. Knowing that he can’t stop Shandra from helping this time around, Ryan actually looks forward to her insightful dreams and knowledge of the land to help him find the killer. He still wants to keep her safe, seeing that the man was killed with a shot to the heart, but it would be pointless to deny her as the days count down to his brother’s wedding. Shandra on his arm will be the talk of the family for weeks and he can’t seem to get enough time with her. When Shandra gets a little too close to finding out the truth about the killer, can Ryan save the only woman who has really ever made him stop in his tracks? Or, will it be the other way around? Jager has a beautifully written mystery that will leave readers eager to continue the series alongside the main character, Shandra Higheagle. The character development is fantastic and the pace is steady. Since this review is complimenting the audiobook, Thompson’s narration was a fairly accurate depiction of what I would expect from a radio or television broadcaster or maybe someone retelling a story in a different perspective; there seems to have been a slight lack of emotion and feeling to the story with this type of voice relay. The story was enjoyable nonetheless and easy to follow. If you are a reader of mysteries, you may want to pick up this story and give it a read. Since this is the third installment, readers are able to read this one as a standalone; however, it may be more enjoyable to start from the beginning of the series. An audiobook was provided to Turning Another Page by Audiobookworm Promotions and in no way affects the honesty of this review. We provide a four-star rating to Deadly Aim by Paty Jager.

Shandra Higheagle was enjoying a ride on her horse after being away from her beloved ranch for two weeks when she suddenly finds a body of a man that has been mauled by wildlife. She calls Detective Ryan Greer to report the dead body. Detective Greer and Shandra are becoming closer but taking their budding relationship slowly, they have become great friends and Shandra knows she can share her visions from her dead grandmother. These visions help Shandra and Detective Greer find out what really happened to the dead man. Was this an accident or murder? This book can be enjoyed as a stand-alone mystery but reading the previous books will give you a better understanding of Shandra and Detective Greer’s relationships and Shandra’s connection with her dead Native American Grandmother. This is a shorter book but still packed with suspense, strong characters, and a touch of romance. Shandra and Greer’s relationship plays an important part in the storyline as they become closer they trust one another more which allows them to work on solving the mystery. However, they have both been hurt before are very slowing allowing this relationship to turn romantic. Greer trusts Shandra’s visions at times more than Shandra does. I really enjoy that the characters aren’t rushing into a romantic relationship allowing them to get to know one another. I really enjoyed this mystery which included a few red-herrings to keep the suspense going until the end of the story. I thought I had the killer figured several times throughout the book only to change my mind as the story progressed. I would recommend this book to other mystery lovers. *I was given a copy of this book in hopes I would submit a review. All thoughts and opinions are that of my own and in no way influenced.
