    Sharyn Howard is the sheriff of Montgomery County and has a couple of problems She hasn t decided whether she s going to run for another term and pressing, her younger sister Kristie is opening a youth camp that s been closed for 25 years.Bell s Creek campground was shut down when a 12 year old girl was murdered, and the killer was never caught At the time, Sharyn s grandfather was sheriff, and not being able to find the killer haunted him so much that he didn t run again Even though Sharyn s not happy with the reopening, she can t stop it.When a reporter is injured shortly before the opening tripping over an item that turns out to be a suitcase long buried Sharyn opens it and discovers a bloody dress and other items Sending it to the coroner for examination, she finds that the blood doesn t match that of the dead girl, and now they have what is possibly two unsolved murders.When Sharyn and her crew begin investigating, they find that someone else was missing from the camp someone who was never reported And from all appearances, the killer is than likely the same one who killed the little girl and is still out there Will Sharyn be able to find a killer who s managed to stay hidden for a quarter of a century Or will she be the next victimI felt that this book was written very well, and I enjoyed it quite a bit This is the fifth book in the series, and I have not read any of the others While I wouldn t be opposed to reading , I will probably not seek them out Sharyn and her deputies have a strong relationship with each other, but as for her personal relationships with her mother, sister, and Nick, who wants to be than friends I didn t feel there was any connection or in Nick s case, any attraction to each other In fact, Sharyn seemed rather bloodless Her emotions are so under control even in a harrowing situation she feels no panic at all that it was difficult to get to know her, to understand what drove her to act the way she does Yes, we are given background on why she became sheriff but it doesn t seem enough to tell us why she stays The mystery was interesting, and I was surprised at the murderer and the reason for the killings I felt that it never really made any sense, but then again, a killer s mind doesn t have to Still, a very good mystery Recommended.

    Sharyn Howard, sheriff of Diamond Springs, North Carolina, is helping her sister and other volunteers renovate the old Bell Creek campground, closed these last twenty five years after her grandfather, then sheriff, was unable to solve a murder of one of the campers Days into the reopening, a suitcase is unearthed and after examination by Sharyn and the medical examiner Nick, they learn it may point to another murder victim from that time period Doing an investigation from twenty five years ago is difficult, but proves to be deadly when an attempt is made on Sharyn s life During all of this, Sharyn needs to decide whether she should run for another term as Sheriff Can she solve these murders Is this job really right for her This is the first book in the Sharyn Howard series that I have read, but I had no problem becoming involved in the various characters and their interactions The plot moved along at a satisfactory rate and contained enough mystery to keep the reader entranced through to the end I am looking forward to continuing this series Disclosure I received a copy of this book from the author.

    Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read , But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I d pick it up.4 stars I really enjoyed this book and will definitely be on the look out to pick up from the series author.5 stars I loved this book It had earned a permanent home in my collection and I ll be picking up the rest of the series and other books from the author ASAP.

    For the Last Time by Joyce and Jim Lavene A great book for all mystery lovers plus it has a hint of romance Sheriff Sharyn Howard is debating running for reelection when she stumbles upon evidence to a twenty five year old unsolved murder Bell s Creek Campground is known to the towns people Devil s campground, an evil place The campground was shut down then and is now set to reopen when evidence points to there having been two victims that fateful night Can the sheriff solve the murders when her grandfather could not as the sheriff to first investigate it Was this the work of the devil or human evil The authors Joyce and Jim Lavene will have you guessing who did it to the very end, with twist and turns around every corner I highly recommend this book.

    This is the 4th Sheriff Sharyn Howard book that I have read but it is the 5th in the series Unfortunately my library doesn t have very many of this series so I have to get them through interlibrary loan when not at the library These books are getting better all the time The previous three that I read I liked and gave a three star rating This one I felt was significantly better and I gave it a four star rating.The characters are getting better developed and at this point I am starting to care about certain ones and hoping that others get their dues.This series doesn t seem to be one of the best often read but if you are looking for a new to you author then I would recommend that you give the Lavene s a try.

    Decent mystery starring a small town s lady sheriff and her efforts to solve the 25 yr old murder s at a children s campground which is unadvisedly trying to open again It starts when she literally trips over an old suitcase while volunteering with the cleanup prior to the grand opening Inside there are clues to a murder, but not the one everyone knew about She, her friend Nick the ME, and her stalwart deputies seek the identity of this newly discovered victim and the who and how of the events that still overshadow the place 25 yrs later.

    quick, easy read 3 1 2 stars Just enough mystery and drama for me, without the overkill Thief books are good quick mysteries.
