The Sheriff of Shelter Valley is the sixth book in the Shelter Valley Stories series by American author, Tara Taylor Quinn. Beth Allen and her son Ryan have been in Shelter Valley for six months. Beth has a cleaning business and tries to keep a low profile, but it isn’t easy with Sheriff Greg Richards taking a romantic interest in her. Greg is perplexed by her reticence, but what he doesn’t realise is that Beth doesn’t know the answers his questions about her past because she has no memory of it. All she knows is that she has to hide. Greg has some puzzles of his own to deal with: violent car-jackings that bear a strong resemblance to similar crimes ten years earlier, one of which disabled his father. In this romantic intrigue novel, Taylor Quinn touches on some thought-provoking topics: gang initiations, cult societies and brain-washing. Her characters are interesting, there is plenty of intrigue, and the original plot builds to a dramatic climax. Enjoyable.

Beth Allen wakes up with a little boy and no memory of her past. She reads an article about Shelter Valley Arizona and how it helped another woman cope with her past and decides that would be the best place to reside with her son while working on remembering. The Sheriff of Shelter Valley is interested in Beth Allen. This is scary for Beth since she doesn’t know her own history or that of the little boy she calls her son. Can she build a relationship for her and her son while coming to terms with a past that she doesn’t remember? The Sheriff of Shelter Valley was my very first Tara Taylor Quinn book. I enjoyed it so much that I went online and purchased every other one of the Shelter Valley Stories. I have been hooked on Tara Taylor Quinn books ever since. This book was provided free to me as an ebook.

The wail of an infant wakes up Beth Allen in a Snowflake, Arizona motel with bruises on her body especially her head and a loss of memory. Beth knows her name because that is the identity she registered with to obtain a room. She concludes based on where she is and the contusions that she is on the run, but has no idea from whom or where. When she reads an article in a magazine about a battered spouse welcomed to safety in nearby Shelter Valley, she decides to go there with the child she assumes is her son. Months later, Beth still suffers from amnesia and remains in hiding for fear that her unknown enemy will find her. Sheriff Greg Richards asks her out as he is attracted to her, but though she likes the lawman, she rejects him because she doesn¿t want him probing into her past even innocently on a date. As he works to stop deadly carjackings that is reminiscent of a cold case, her past is closing in on her and only Greg can keep her and her son safe. Fans of the series will delight in the latest entry as characters return from previous novels and Greg finds his true love. The story line uses a police procedural as a secondary subplot, but mostly focuses on Beth¿s dilemmas. Though amnesia is an overused gimmick, the audience will want Greg to stop whoever seeks to harm the heroine. Romantic suspense readers will enjoy this tale though the villain¿s reason for chasing Beth seems stretched, but then again perhaps cult insanity makes it reasonable. Harriet Klausner
