My Review: Hard Ride to Dry Gulch by Joanna Wayne
Lots of drama, suspense. Faith is a strong female character. She will do anything to help find her son. Their is one love scene that I skipped over. Some violence.
Faith is a single mom. Her son went missing ten months ago. She knows he would not just run away like the police think he did.
She has gone into sleazy places dressed like a hooker to try and find information. She has a good friends, not much family support.
Travis Dalton is a cop. He met Faith when she looked like a hooker. Now she is bridesmaid in his brother's wedding. Travis is single. He has issues dealing with his father but is very close to his brother Leif. He checks out Faith and decides he will look into her missing son.
Cornell Ashburn is 18. Some say he was into drugs, was known days before he disappeared to be seen at a strip club. Had no reason to runaway from home.
Joni Dalton is Faith's good friend has been their for her since her son went missing. She is now married to Leif.
I feel like I have missed out on some from not reading earlier books in the series. Still a enjoyable story.
Their is lots of danger from powerful men in drug trade. No one will cross Georgio Trosclair he owns the Passion Pit strip club and a few other businesses. The cops have a hard time getting him up on charges because witnesses disappear.
I wish the book was longer and we got to know the characters better. I want to read the books in the series I missed and want to read the next and see how the future unfolds. I liked it.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
