Good Sunday morning, hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods!

This week’s read was Desert Heat, by J.A. Jance. This is the first book in the Joanna Brady series, and it’s not a new series, so I’ve got some catching up to do. Which is a good thing.

On the night of their tenth wedding anniversary, Joanna Brady finds herself worried about her husband, Andy, when he’s hours late for their planned celebratory dinner. (Bear in mind, this book was written in 1993. People didn’t just call each other on cell phones back in the “old days” like we do now). When she goes out to look for him, she finds him in a ditch, bleeding profusely from a gunshot wound. Andy is running for sheriff of Cochise County, and Joanna immediately becomes concerned that his opponents had something to do with the shooting. As Andy is fighting for his life in the hospital, Joanna is informed that it was a suicide attempt on his part. She knows that’s preposterous and fights to clear his name against some very dangerous people.

Desert Heat was a really fast read, which I love, and kept me guessing until the end. Love that, too. I’m looking forward to reading more of this series and will keep you posted. ‘Til next time, happy reading! 🙂
