A Tulare County Supervisor, with both Native American and Mexican roots, dies under suspicious circumstances. Because of Deputy Tempe Crabtree’s own ties to the Bear Creek Indian Reservation, she’s asked to help with the investigation.
To complicate matters, besides the supervisor’s husband, several others had reason to want the woman dead.
Tempe has unsettling dreams, dreams that may predict the future and bring back memories of her grandmother’s stories about the legend of the Hairy Man. Once again, Tempe’s life is threatened and this time, she fears no one will come to her rescue in time.
I attempted to read this book a few times before actually sitting down and telling myself, “just do it.” The book did not immediately pull me in because I felt that the author gave too much of an introduction but once I started reading I forgot all about the intro. It wasn’t necessary to understand or enjoy the story. It was an enjoyable read but I did not feel compelled to read it all in once sitting, which is a sure sign for me that a book is more than just good. The author wrote a nice mystery and I enjoyed her characters but felt that the story fell a little flat and the final action scene left me unmoved. Overall the author is a good writer but the story felt undeveloped.
