Next of Kin by Sharon Sala
This is the 1st of a the Rebel Ridge series by Sharon Sala.
Beth Venable has seen too much. Witness to a major mob hit, she’s placed in protective custody until the trial. But after her third safe house is riddled with bullets, she goes off-grid to save herself. What the FBI can’t do, her kinfolk will.The beautiful but forbidding Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky welcome Beth back, dirt roads and rustic shacks a world apart from L.A. But her homecoming—even her blissful reunion with strong, silent Ryal Walker—is made bittersweet by the fight she’s brought to the clan’s doorstep. Hidden in a remote cabin with the man she’s always wanted, Beth begins to dream of a new life: her old one. But after so long, with such dangers stalking her impossible.But love can distill life down to its essence: an elixir of pure hope, nerve—and the will to survive.
I like Sharon Sala’s books-this one included. I don’t know if I would categorize this one as a mystery. It’s really just an action with romance in it as well. (Which is always good in my opinion!)
I don’t like reading books about the Mob, but this one is an exception since it didn’t go into too many details about the Mob.
I really like Beth’s determination to survive, and of course I like the man she loves.
The only reason is took me a week to read this one is because of the craziness of the week. 🙂
