More from Tanya

When my children were very young, my husband and I took a trip to Colorado for a family reunion. After the reunion we traveled through Colorado to see the sights. We stopped in Silverton and my sister and I took my young son and daughter down the narrow-gauge railroad to Durango. Riding the swaying train down slopes covered in pine trees with the rushing white water of the Animas River below, I knew I’d write about the area someday. Many years later my husband and I took our first “kid-less” vacation in our motorhome. We stayed in a campground on the Navajo Nation next to Canyon de Chelly. We had no running water or electricity and that night, a storm blew in from the west. We watched the sky change to hues of purple and pink and then sat mesmerized as lightning strikes crossed the magnificent valley. Once again, I planted the scenes in my mind, determined to write about them one day. Little did I know both vacations would combine into one story. I hope you find my memories of the Four Corners area as unforgettable as I did! Blessings!


This is a fast paced story that screams of intrigue. I first want to mention the breathtaking scenery the author describes when the action is taken into the mountains of Colorado. I could picture the beautiful sky and see the beauty that God had made. I would love to visit Canyon de Chelly. I loved how the author incorporates Navajo people. It was interesting to learn more  about them and explore the land where history took place. 

I liked Dulcie and her work as a domestic violence counselor. She takes her job serious and is determined to keep women safe. It was interesting to hear about her past and what she had to endure as a child. Her past has caused her not to trust and it has become more intense as the years go by. When she finds out about a human trafficking ring, she is determined to stop it.  

Austin is a good cop but he has days where he can’t forget about his loss. He blames himself and feels like God could have prevented it. When he and Dulcie  team up to catch the people involved in the trafficking ring, danger  finds  them. Dulcie has some evidence that could put people away for a long time. These people will do anything to stop her. There is plenty of danger as these two try to stay one step ahead of them. There is a good faith element in the storyline that talks about trusting God.  I liked how Austin and Dulcie share their past and start to let each other in. 

The story highlights the human trafficking and how rampant it is. I can’t imagine how someone could treat others like they are commodities to sell without any remorse. I appreciate the author using this subject in her story to remind us that evil is out there.  There was one person I was shocked at that was involved in the crime. There are some  close calls that had me on the edge of my seat. It is a great story filled with intrigue, danger, faith and learning how to trust again. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
