About the Book
Bridget Olasfson, a beautiful archivist hiding secrets, comes to Utah's brilliant red rock country to catalog the McCarran Collection. Though she's sworn off men in her life, she’s attracted to Ben, the bad-boy, off-road racing McCarran cousin. But it’s Lew McCarran, the tall, quiet cousin, she turns to when she finds herself caught up in a dangerous intrigue involving a lost boy, a drug cartel, and death. What will she do when the only way to save the boy is to give up the man she loves?
Part romance, part cozy mystery, part thriller, The McCarran Collection is, last of all, a novel about family ties.
About the Author
A late bloomer, Liz published her first mystery (The Lodger) just as AARP started sending invitations to join. After writing three in the Spider Latham series, Liz moved into romantic suspense with The Mist of Quarry Harbor.
Liz took a break from suspense to write Counting the Cost, a novel based on family history. The book won the 2009 Whitney Award and was a finalist for the Willa Award and Arizona Publisher Association's Glyph Award.
Liz returned to romantic suspense with Cold River and feels writing in that genre doing so is a service project. "I remember when I was a young mother with all those kids and a slender budget," she says. "I was so grateful for books that let me go places and meet people who carried on adult conversations That's what I want to write--cheap vacations."
Liz Adair has written a page turning western, contemporary, romance, suspense novel that will have readers on the edges of their seats. From page one, I could tell this story was going to be full of adventure and suspense. With surprising twists and turns, this novel will leave readers anticipating what will happen next. And of course there is a bit of western-romance involved too. This is an entertaining novel with great characters and a well-written somewhat fast paced suspense story. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy a mixture of these different genres.
