Deadly Choices is the third installment from the Rim Country Mysteries series. It is, also, my first intro to Karen Randau's writing. Even though it is part of a series, I did not feel lost or feel like I was missing anything. I still would like to go back and catch up on what had happened previously. This book is packed full of action, danger, adventure, mystery, and suspense. There were so many twists and turns, I felt like my head was spinning. I loved every single page and had to keep turning them to see what would happen next. Great read! 5 stars. I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
Dollycas’s Thoughts Karen Rabdau is a new author to me but with stories like this one we are going to become fast friends. I was skeptical about jumping into this series with book three but by the end of the first chapter I was totally tuned in and reading at a rapid pace. The mentions of things that happened in previous books only made me realize that I needed to add both books to my wish list right away. Deadly Choices starts out with Rita and Cliff camping with her mother, Willow, a woman Rita has not seen for 25 years, when they hear a shot and soon after a woman they had met earlier stumbles into their campsite with an arrow in her chest. She was teaching a student and he is missing. Had he been shot? Rita and her detective husband Cliff are quickly brought into the case. As more deaths occur, a man they have known for years becomes a prime suspect. As they investigate surprising things are uncovered tying back into the past. This story is a wild adventure for Cliff and Rita. There were so many edge of the seat moments I lost count. Explosions, kidnapping, and twists and turns galore. Ms. Randau is a wonderful storyteller. She packs as much punch into these pages as humanly possible and makes it impossible to put this book down. I love the way she describes a scene. I felt like I was right there whether it be a dangerous situation or if she was just describing the beauty of Rim County. The dialogue was on point and I was totally invested in these characters. The plot was complex and so well written. Drama, danger, mystery and suspense with well crafted characters, this story has them all. I am excited for the next adventure. The story deserves more than 5 stars! Paradise Rating.
