More from Dana

Cold Case Connection was really fun to write because it’s Helen’s story. She’s an intelligent, sensitive woman who is the sister to the men living on the Roughwater Ranch. Liam is her biological brother, but she’s just as close to Chad and Mitch who might as well be blood relatives. In this novel, Helen has to relive the worst moment of her teenage life, the night when a mysterious murder occurred during a teen prank. Helen is going to have to face the past in order to preserve her future. Cowboys, a case gone cold, a coastal ranch and a whole lot of danger…I hope you will enjoy the ride!

My Thoughts:

I loved this book! Dana Mentink has earned a spot on my list of favorite romantic suspense authors, I love how she combines sigh-worthy romance with spine-tingling suspense, and she has a knack for writing in just the right amount of humor at just the right moment, all of this combined equals books that I love to read! 
I have been so enjoying the Roughwater Ranch Cowboys series, and Cold Case Connection is my favorite of the series so far! I tend to really enjoy stories that feature cold cases and this one was incredibly well done, I had no clue why the first person had been murdered or what exactly was the link between the two murders until it was revealed! There were several possibilities as to the villain's identity, and I kept changing my mind about who I thought it was and ultimately I was surprised by who the villain was, something that doesn't happen often because I read a lot of suspense books and love to play armchair detective, so bravo Dana Mentink! 
I really liked Helen in the first two books in the series so I was really excited to read her story, and I was not disappointed! Helen was a great heroine, I liked that she was strong and determined, but that at the same time she had a lot of common sense and wasn't so determined to be independent that she ended up doing reckless and downright stupid things, that is something that you sometimes see with suspense novel heroines and I was so glad it wasn't the case with her. And Sergio, oh my word, there's just something about a hero who is a devoted daddy to the children in his care that makes my heart go pitter-pat, Sergio was such a good dad to Lucy and Laurel that I totally melted right along with Helen! 
This book is so good, and I absolutely loved everything about it! I highly recommend Cold Case Connection, and can't wait for Chad's story!
(5 Stars!)
