McIntire County Series, #1

Nic is just wow! PTSD is no joke and I felt for her as she went through it but she didn’t let it stop her. She did her job and regardless of the front she puts on she is human, does have feelings and can get hurt.

When the town goes against her, after she’s forced to kill the cousin of one of the people she works with, she starts to unravel and her PTSD kicks up in full force. Not only that but they have a lot of “suicides” in the area and Nic is going to figure out why, along with the unwanted help of her sister, and FBI agent and Con.

This was a great read and I was caught up in the ride. Nic’s dad is an asshole but they had a thing at the end that may fix it or might not. I really hope that there will be a second book. I would like to know Cass’s story and her situation with Mr. FBI man. The author did a really great job keeping the mystery of The Priest a secret until the end. There were plenty of twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat and I do recommend this.
