Buried Truth by Dana Mentink

Just finished reading Buried Truth by Dana Mentink. Considering the fact I am a fan of historical romance this Love Inspired Suspense was a bit outside the box for me. I loved it. Dana Mentink is an incredible writer. From page one I was transported from my quite couch at home in the Ozarks to the hills of South Dakota. Her three dimensional characters were so real I was drawn to them from the start. The twist and turns of their journey were unpredictable (good, good thing when you’re talking fiction romance) leading them to save the day as well as learn to forgive and heal.

As a pre-published author I’m learning more and more about ‘rules’ and ‘how it’s done’. As a reader and a student of the art I knew right away I was reading the work of a professional. Buried Truth was the first book of Dana’s I’ve read but not the last. Readers are in good hands with this multi-published writer. The edge of your seat excitement came to a satisfactory conclusion that left me wishing there were more pages to turn.

From the back of the book:


A note, impaled by a knife on Bill Cloudman’s door, tells the former tribal agent a murderer has escaped. The vicious madman who murdered Bill’s partner – and cost Bill the community’s trust and his job – is on the loose in the South Dakota badlands again. Bill vows to put him behind bars once and for all. But when the woman he loved and lost returns to Eagle Rock reservation as a newspaper reporter determined to restore her own reputation with the story, Bill has to protect her…and his guarded heart.
