This is am incredibly good story. Deputy Coroner Zoe Chambers is a stong, insightful character and I was pleasantly surprised with the story line. I am not familiar with this author so it's always fun to discover a new to me author. In this book Zoe discovers the body of the county commissioner when she discovers his horse has returned, riderless. This explodes into a game of cat and mouse which puts Zoe into some precarious situations. Also unfolding is the story with her best friend's son, who happens to be missing. Taking off to help her nerve wracked friend, Zoe finds herself in a battle with nefarious foes who would rather kill then face the consequences. This story tells a gripping story and I felt transported into the action. All cozy mystery biufs must put this on their to be read list. I voluntarily read an ARC of this boo provided by Henery Press and NetGalley.

Zoe Chambers is a Paramedic and Deputy Coroner in rural Pennsylvania. She also boards horsesand runs trail rides. When one of her boarders' horses returns riderless, Zoe sets out to find what she hopes is the injured man, Unfortunately, she finds County Commissioner Dale Springfield dead. She assumes that his horse spooked, dragged him before shaking him loose and heading home The autopsy shows different. It turns out that Dale is on the no side of the discussion of allowing a company to frac in their township. Could someone have killed him to prevent him from speaking out? Pete has his work cut out for him on this one to find out who has the most to gain from Dale's death. While he is investigation this, young people are overdosing on heroin and meth. Is there something mixed with the drugs? Who is bringing in these deadly drugs? Who is Wolfie, the possible dealer? Meanwhile Zoe has been asked to make a trip to New Mexico with her best friend Rose. It seems her son, Logan has disappeared and his girlfriend has been found dead. Is he the killer or is he in hiding from the killer? There is someone hunting Logan and that puts Zoe right in the path of the killer. Pete heads to New Mexico when Zoe stops answering her phone. Rose is frantic with worry and convinced that the boy she loves like a son is innocent, it's up to Zoe - with the help of Logan's sister Allison - to find out the truth of the matter. The author switches smoothly between storylines in both states without skipping a beat. You are at first in rural Pennsylvania, with its rolling hills, brisk snowy weather, and close-knit community, then quickly transported to New Mexico, with its jagged mountains, bright sunrises, and desert terrain with people as mysterious as the mountains themselves The Navajo friends that Logan and Alison made when they lived there, enter the story with assistance. When we reach the end of the story it comes together beautifully. The conclusion is believable and well-written. Once again, Zoe shows her smarts, her caring nature and the skills she has to assist in emergency situations. Once again, I think this is the best in the series so far. I highly recommend not just this book, but the whole series. This is more than just a cozy, it is a thriller/mystery with cozy characteristics.

There was never a lull or a place I felt like I could put it down and wait until tomorrow to finish.

Love this series to pieces

This is really well crafted. There are troubles in PA with a death (murder) and young people ODing on drugs. Then there is Zoe's friend's son who is in NM and isn't returning calls. Then his girl friend is found murdered. Each part is a richly detailed story with interesting and engaging characters. Then the connections begin to appear. A delightful, if rather harrowing tale. Now I want some Navajo fry bread!

FANTASTIC SUSPENSE! No Way Home will take you on a suspense filled ride from beginning to end! Dashofy's characters are believable, interesting, intense and make you want to be one of their friends. The plot is excellent and will keep you up all night because you have to read "just one more chapter." Dashofy is a new author to me and I found her descriptive writing made me feel like I was right in the middle of the action - seeing the beauty of the settings, feeling the intensity of the darkness, hearing/feeling their (my) heart beating wildly in their (my) chests and wondering about the safety of loved ones. What more could you ask for in a mystery? I received a complimentary copy from NetGalley and Henery Press but this opinion is strictly my own and without influence.

No Way Home is wonderful! I absolutely loved it. This fourth book in an awesome series brings great mystery, fantastic adventure, witty humor, and just a touch of sweet romance and real danger together into the perfect blend. No Way Home maintains the outstanding quality of writing and the heart touching characters of each of the earlier books. Fan of Annette Dashofy’s Zoe Chamber Mysteries you are anxiously awaiting No Way Home and you will be thrilled with the book. New readers are sure to love it almost as much as those of us already attached to the main characters. There are characters, bits of knowledge, and attitudes that carry over, but beyond those the only thing that does not come as a surprise is the outstanding quality of Ms. Dashofy’s writing. If you are new to the series, you will be able to track the story with no problem although previous books build a background of the characters that new fans will discover full blown in this one. Most of those details will not detract from your reading pleasure when you go back to catch up, as you are sure to do. Contemporary cozy mysteries or lighter mysteries like this one bring the reader the comforts of a cozy: strong characters to love, sweet romance, great relationships, and humor but to that is added a few twists. The depth of the relationships seem stronger, life is easy for the heroine, the readers emotions may be touched more deeply. Make no mistake, these stores are real mysteries and the characters have to be intelligent to survive the dangers. The plot is thoughfully laid out and the characters are draw with smooth details that are built into the story. Zoe finds the body of a friend that turns out to be murder, but there are questions about several facets of the death that don’t make sense even for a murder. She is excited to be able to us her position as deputy chief coroner to participate in the investigation. That excitement is soon quashed when the danger of someone close to her pulls her across the country and into a world that is alien and where she feels helpless. Not a feeling she is used to nor one that she likes. I am already looking forward the the next book in the Zoe Chambers Mysteries series! Oh what an adventure Zoe and her followers have in store for them. It is a great book with fast paced action and danger that almost too my breath away at time. I requested and received an advanced readers copy of this book via NetGalley. The review is completely voluntary. I always review books that I love and I absolutely loved No Way Home!

This is one of my favorite series by Henery Press. Zoe Chambers is an Emergency Medical Technician. She is also working to become a detective. She is also dating - maybe more - the police chief of Vance Township, Pete Adams. In this book, we find someone has shot the county commissioner and there's a girl who's died of an overdose all in the same day. There's not a lot of murders in this small township. So for there to be two in one day - okay something's going on. This leads both Pete and Zoe scrambling to figure it out. Pete because he's the chief and Zoe because the commissioner died while riding his horse which was boarded in her stable and on her trails. There's lots more bodies, intrigue, shootings, suspense, and mystery with a whole list of suspects in this unputdownable book. It may be a cozy mystery, but this one had my heart beat racing. Thanks to Henery Press for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.

No Way Home by Annette Dashofy What a great book! To echo Zoe — Wow! Double (triple) jeopardy, with so many suspects, so many crimes, and far too many miles between Zoe and Pete. Loyalties are strong, as Zoe helps Rose, Allison, and Sylvia hunt for Logan, missing in Aztec, New Mexico. Welcome help comes from Billy Yellowhorse, whom I want to see in future books if possible. Pete is working on a murder case and drug crimes in Monangahela County, Pennsylvania, unwillingly coordinating efforts with Wayne Baronick, who isn’t a bad guy really. Environmental issues connect with real world concerns and relevance. One might think all the subplots and twists would be hard to follow, but the storyline flowed clearly as the puzzles got more intricate. I didn’t want to stop reading, but my tired eyes rebelled, so I read to a relatively safe place and finished the amazing adventures in the morning. Definitely a “go away world” reading experience . . . Descriptions of New Mexico “she might as well have landed on the moon” were like a lovely virtual vacation, including perfectly capturing the generic motel room that could be anywhere. I remembered the stories of a teller from the Southwest who went to college in the East and felt uneasy there, too closed in and too green. Temperature and time zone changes add more variables to the scene (and echoed for me the unseasonable 70-degree February weather here as I was reading). Nicknames I love: Medicine Woman and Pony Boy New term learned: barn sour
