Robbed of Soul by Lois D. Brown

★★★

  I enjoyed this book a lot. It opens with quite the bang, and keeps a nice steady pace from that moment forward. This novel is an easy read that will hold your interest until the very last page.
     The mystery in this book is very well written. You only know what Maria knows, and nothing more. All too often, I know exactly where a story is going, and more often than not, I figure the mystery out before it’s revealed in the novel. That is so not the case in this story. Well done.
     All the characters are very likable, and the ones you’re not supposed to like, you won’t. The hint of romance along the way is not overbearing, and the development of the relationship stays very true to the characters involved. Another well done.
     I have full intentions to follow this series to see where it goes.

Mystery, Romance
Rescued but psychologically damaged from a failed mission, ex-CIA officer Maria Branson takes the job of police chief in the quiet town of Kanab, Utah. Rest and relaxation are the doctor’s orders. She gets neither. Instead, a missing mayor, the spirit of a dead Aztec warrior, and the over-confident-yet-attractive head of Search and Rescue await her in a town whose past has almost as many secrets as her own. As Maria investigates a modern-day murder, she disturbs a world of ancient legends and deadly curses. Yet most lethal of all is Maria’s fear someone will discover just how empty her soul really is.
Whether you’re interested in the treasures of Montezuma, enjoy squeaky clean mysteries, or have a soft spot for light romance and suspense, Robbed of Soul fits the bill.
