The Lawman Returns by Lynette Eason

A dangerous homecoming for a deputy in this classic page turner by bestselling author Lynette Eason

Deputy Clay Starke has come home to Wrangler’s Corner for one reason only: to solve his brother’s murder. Denied the official resources that will help him unravel the case, Clay is forced to rely on his wits—and on the help of beautiful social worker Sabrina Mayfield. But Sabrina’s willingness to assist him soon draws her into the troubles of Clay’s past. Now both Clay and Sabrina have targets on their backs, and Clay is at risk of losing not only his heart, but also his life. Will finding his brother’s killer cost him the woman he has come to love?

Wrangler’s Corner: Family comes first.

Book received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I enjoyed this book. I didn't think beyond the current plot (as to who might actually be running the show), but once a particular event had, it became pretty clear who the ultimate villain was. Thankfully, the villain got their just desserts. Now, onto the characters. Clay - pretty decent guy, even though he's carrying around some major guilt for not coming back to town sooner and blaming himself for his brother's death. He stretches the limits of what he can do (since he couldn't be on the case of his brother's murder for obvious reasons) in trying to figure out how/why he died. I enjoyed spending time with him. Sabrina - It takes guts to be a social worker even in a small town. To CONTINUE being devoted to one's job after people start shooting at one, makes it even more amazing that Sabrina didn't just run for the hills. No, she stayed on course and looking out for the kids she was supposed to protect. There were some great twists and turns. I found the book progressed nicely as it comes to flow - I definitely turned the pages faster and faster as I got closer to the end because I just HAD to know whodunit. I was a bit surprised actually on all fronts regarding the villains, so that always makes a nice surprise. The resolution was satisfactory and even though this was my first book by Ms. Eason, I'm pretty sure it won't be my last!

The Lawman Returns is action packed from the opening scene.  Sabrina is a social worker who is trying to help Jordan.  Jordan thinks he may know who killed Steven, her friend and local police officer.   Clay is one of Steven’s brothers and has moved back to try and solve the murder ‘unofficially’.  Clay and Sabrina are attracted to each other.  It is a slow sweet romance.   There is family drama for Clay to deal with that may run throughout the series.  His parent’s may lose their farm because of financial reasons.  Clays’ uncle is still bitter after several years that Sabrina’s mom left him at the altar.  Clay’s brother Seth has come home to heal from his physical ones and deal with his attraction to a woman. (wondering if this might be book 2?) In addition to the family issues Clay and Sabrina are dodging bullets, ending up in caves and trying to figure out who is Steven’s killer.   You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.

I had a hard time with this book. I liked it, but there seemed to be something missing. I've read all of the prior Eason books in this genre, and I can't think of one that gave me this feeling that something wasn't quite up to her usual standard. So, please forgive me if I'm vague regarding my reason for giving this a four instead of a five star review. That said, I liked the characters, the plot was well thought out, and I was unable to guess who the "boss" was until the author revealed that person.

This is my first read of Lynette Eason, and her new book “The Lawman Returns”, may not be her very best. I’ve gone through her books and she’s got books with reviews over a 1000 for some. So the jury is still out there, from my side. The Lawman Returns is set in Wrangler’s Corner, a small town in Tennessee. Clarke Starke returns to his hometown as a Deputy and is hell bent on getting to the bottom of mystery surrounding his brother’s death, who was a deputy. Sabrina Mayfield is a social worker, trying not to repeat the mistakes her mother made, and stick to her profession of helping children.  Circumstances and a killer on the loose bring Clarke and Sabrina together and eventually get under one roof, as they try to uncover the face behind the evil and the meth that seems to be making its presence strong. Loyalty and love are tested, as past pain and hurt bring some emotional outbursts and feelings into the open. It has a good story, but unfortunately it seems to be told in a very fast and confusing narration. The attraction between Clarke and Sabrina seems to be forced and too soon. Individually their characters are likeable, but the process of developing feelings for each other was not given enough justice. It is still a good book to read, it just fell below my expectations. Having said that, I just went and bought Lynette Eason’s “Too Close To Home” (Woman Of Justice Series #1).

The Lawman Returns by Lynette Eason (Wrangler's Corner) 4 stars The Lawman returns was a good suspense story. Though I had guessed early about who the boss was. The rest kept me guessing. I liked the characters. Lots of drama, action, and family. Clay Starke has come back to town after his brother Steven was murdered. He even took the job Steven had. No one new who had killed him. Clay comes from a big family. Sabrina Mayfield is a social worker who cares about the kids. Someone is trying to kill her. Steven was a good friend of hers. Clay and Sabrina are working together to find Jordan. A 17 year old kid who thinks he knows who killed Steven now is in danger too. Clay can't investigate on his brothers death. Their is a lot of drama going on with Clay's family besides his brothers death. His uncle Abe hates Sabrina because her mother left him at the alter before she was born. Tony and Maria are Jordan's little brother and sister. They followed Jordan. Jordan risks a lot by drawing attention so they can get away, They are cute kids. You just want to hug and feed them. I would read more of Wrangler's Corner to see what happens next. Can the ranch be saved? I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give honest review. Received the ebook from Net Galley and Harlequin.
