About the book
Running from a murderer
with only the desert as refuge…
Placed in WITSEC while his brother testifies against a terrifying criminal, Tony Ortega must guard his young niece and nephew from the hit man hunting for them. Death Valley local Willow Duke’s hideout might just be the difference between the little family’s life or death. When bullets start flying, can they thwart a killer long enough to survive and become a family for real?
And I thought
I have wanted to start this series since Book 1 became available.
And now with book 4 I finally got the chance.
When I began the book I didn't realize the series was about the Duke family and each of their Love stories woven into a suspenseful read.
I just wanted to read the books because I love Romantic Suspense and I have wanted to read one by author Dana Mentink.
Even though I jumped in at book 4 it was super easy to get acquainted with the characters and the Duke clan.
Death Valley Hideout was a page turner from page one I was swept in.
And I then only a few pages later I was hooked when Tony flies his helicopter into a Death Valley Canyon and sets it down!
All because the bad was trying to kidnap his nephew.
Willow shows her bravery not in only by chasing the kidnapper and then crawls into the car to save the little boy as it teeters on the edge of a cliff.
And all this is only in the first few pages!
Tony and Willow end up on a wild ride as they play the Mouse in the bad guys Cat and Mouse game.
The bad guys don't give up! Seemingly pulling in help from law enforcement and bribing private citizens. And maybe even Tony's uncle a retired Police Officer.
There are times Tony and Willow aren't sure who they can trust.
Death Valley Hideout has to be my favorite Suspense read of the year.
Because as soon as I get the chance I will be reading the 3 previous books in the series!

Willow Duke felt a shiver of uncertainty at her own daring, but she pushed it away as she took the last turn.
