Short Investigations by Clair M. Poulson


About:

In the sleepy town of Heber, a strange 911 call is made to report an unthinkable crime: someone has murdered a woman . . . and her body has been found in Rhett Ketchum’s barn. Rhett, a well-known rodeo cowboy, is placed firmly at the top of the suspect list—the only problem is, he’s innocent. As officers search tirelessly for the evidence needed to lock him up, Rhett takes matters into his own hands.

Max and Patches Fisher are the father-daughter duo behind the unconventional PI firm Short Investigations, and they agree to undertake the task of proving Rhett’s innocence. Soon the list of suspects begins to grow, and Rhett feels a glimmer of hope—and an undeniable attraction to Patches. But when the officers on the case become targets themselves, it seems they may be the ones in need of protection. As events take a deadly turn, it’s up to Max and Patches to uncover the truth before time runs out.

In Emilee’s opinion:

Short Investigations by Clair M. Poulson is another amazing murder mystery. I’ve read a few of Poulson’s books and I’ve enjoyed each one. I love the way he writes and each book is full of suspense. There were so many different mysteries going on that I was trying to figure it all out till the very end. Rhett who was the main character drew me in with his charm and kindness. I knew he wasn’t the killer and I’m pretty sure any reader would catch on to that as well. There were some other fun characters such as Patches who surprised me by her intelligence. Overall, it was a fun book to read. It caught my attention right away and it was very consistent. I definitely recommend it and any other book written by Poulson. Well done!
