Mysteries typically are not me normal read. This one was okay. I am tending to think I have an abnormal view on how adult relationships work, because a lot of the books I come across have this unrealistic ( in my opinion) way of how adults act around each other. Other than that, this was a good story. Narration was okay. Although this is book 4, I have not read any of the other books and had no problems jumping right into this book.
I really enjoyed reading the Murderous Secrets, a fast-paced and creative western mystery. Shandra has received messages from her Nez Perce grandmother in her dreams before, from the grave, and has helped Shandra solve murders. When the messages involve the seemingly accidently death of her native American father, she takes it seriously. Suddenly she is investigating a possible murder with the help of her boyfriend and detective Ryan. She goes back to the Colville Reservation to interview members of her father's family to find clues and it leads her down the dusty path of the rodeo circuit, sometimes too close to home. No spoilers here, but the mystery heats up as someone is obviously trying to keep them from solving the case. I loved the colorful characters like her assistant Lillian and the cat and dog at the ranch, in addition to the rodeo suspects. There is a nice budding relationship with Officer Ryan as well. The only thing that detracted a bit from the book was the narrator who overall was good but she talked very slowly and carefully sometimes, especially when she was speaking for the native characters and it made them seem slow.
