More from Dana
Wooty woo! We’re back in Death Valley again! So excited about this fourth book in the series because Papa Bear and I have actually returned to this amazing place. (Our previous return trip was stalled for a while due to the virus that shall not be named!) People have asked me, “Why do you love Death Valley so much?” I can only respond that you just have to go there to understand. Is it the vastness of the place? The enormous topographical variety? Maybe it’s the profound quietness that permeates the national park and environs. Then again, it might be the panorama of nighttime stars. (Death Valley National Park is a certified International Dark Sky Park due to its limited light pollution.) Could it be the tenacity of people who live there and survive the one hundred twenty plus degree temperatures in the summer? And how about those animals? The Death Valley pupfish is a teeny little endangered fish that lives in precisely one spot on the globe (Death Valley) and only two places within that range, Salt Creek and Cottonball Marsh. Imagine that! So why set a six book series in Death Valley? Because there’s no more hostile and incredible place I can think of. I hope you will enjoy taking a fictional trip with me there too. Enjoy the adventure, reader friends!
Death Valley Hideout is part of the Desert Justice series that is written by Dana Mentink. This is book 4 in the series. I have been fortunate enough to read the whole series, but they can be read as stand alones. While previous characters will make appearances the author gives a quick recap when they enter the story. Willow Duke has befriended Tony Ortega and his two cute little kids. Only to find out that he is not who he says he is. The cute kids, Carter and Bee are actually his brother's children that he is keeping safe in the witness protection program. His brother, who is a mess, has made some people mad. He is trying to blackmail a dark web giant - and thinks that is better then testifying against the man. Now he has put everyone at risk. Willow and Tony are not sure who they can trust in the small town. The book starts off with action and does not let up for you to catch your breath. I am a huge fan of this author and she always writes such creative stories. Willow's brothers are great protectors and will do anything to help keep their sister safe. There are two more books in the series, and I cannot wait to read them. The characters are well developed, and the story line packed full of action. Thank you the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book, all thoughts are my own.
