SETTLING AN OLD SCORE is the third book in the LONGVIEW RIDGE RANCH series. Although I haven’t read the first two books in the series, I was able to fill in some of the blanks quickly. It helped to have the listing of the cast of characters in the beginning of the book with some information on each of them.
This is a fast-paced read set in Texas with lots of suspense and intrigue along the way. Ashlyn and Eli have a past that they haven’t dealt with, but when she shows up at his house looking for blood along with her kidnapped baby, look out! There’s still an attraction they are both fighting. Ashlyn is a good mom, although she and her baby are in the thick of things too many times to count. There are a lot of police involved in solving the crime, including Eli, a Texas Ranger and his brothers, who are a sheriff and deputy.
The story does really well with the suspense and host of colorful suspects, and the villain surprised me. There was closure but enough loose ends to take us to the last book in the series, HIS BRAND OF JUSTICE, which I’m looking forward to reading. I also plan to read the two books I missed, SAFETY BREACH and A THREAT TO HIS FAMILY, to round out the picture and fill in all the blanks.
SETTLING AN OLD SCORE is a thrilling romantic suspense from the talented Delores Fossen.
