Title: Redemption at Hawk's Landing (Badge of Justice #1)
Author: Rita Herron
Stars: 3 1/2 stars
The story is what you expect from Harlequin. Conflicted love interest, female lead find love in the unexpected place, everyone is shocked, Sheriff comes to her rescue they fall in love and the story ends. Nothing really stood out in the story and everything happened readers would expect.
I guess I was hoping for more but instead found cliches from the names to the different characters to the very last page of the book.
The author ability create a picture and paint it for readers is what set this book apart from other Harlequin fast books. Would I pick it up and read it again. No.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the advance copy
A missing sister, a murdered father and a dangerous reunion years in the making.
The last place Honey Granger wants to be is Tumbleweed, Texas—the judgmental town that made her childhood a living hell. But when Sheriff Harrison Hawk informs her that her alcoholic father has been murdered, she reluctantly joins his investigation. The sexy sheriff has long suspected Honey’s father in his sister’s disappearance and vows to solve both mysteries. But keeping his professional distance from the vulnerable blonde proves nearly impossible. He’ll guard her 24/7 until her life is out of danger. But how will she feel if Harrison proves her father was a murderer?

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Rita Herron fell in love with books at the ripe age of eight when she read her first Trixie Belden mystery. Although she wanted to be a writer then and actually scrawled her first novel at age twelve, she didn’t think real people grew up to be writers, so she became a kindergarten teacher instead. Ten years ago, she traded her classroom storytelling and puppets for a computer and now writes so she doesn’t have to get a real job.
Having sold over fifty books to date, she enjoys spinning spine-tingling romantic suspense tales filled with murder, mayhem, and spicy romance as well as sexy romantic comedies. Rita Herron currently writes romantic suspense for Harlequin Intrigue and she’s writing dark, gritty romantic suspense thrillers for Amazon Montlake.
