Margaret Mizushima has done it again with her latest Timber Creek K-9 Mystery, BURNING RIDGE! I love reading this
series and the characters that bring it to life. The main character,
Mattie Cobb, shows strength and at times lets her guard down and
reveals the real pain she carries around. This is the side she tries to
hide away from those that really love and care about her. She shows
her nurturing side as well as her tough side throughout this storyline.
This makes her character believable and real to the reader. Another
reason why I love this series!
Mattie Cobb and her K-9, Robo, are targets of a ruthless individual who
wants answers that they think Mattie can answer. One man is already
found dead at Colorado's Redstone Ridge and Mattie is closer to the
dead man than she knows. More skeletons of three other victims are
found. Is there a connection? And how is Mattie tied to it all? Time is
running out for answers leaving Mattie's love interest, and local vet,
Cole Walker, working with the local authorities to find Mattie before it is
too late and to save Robo at the same time.
I love that in this book of the series you get more background of Mattie
that answers questions about her character in some of the past books.
Watching this story develop with such loving and caring characters
makes me more excited about what Mizushima has to come in the
future ones. BURNING RIDGE by
Margaret Mizushima is a must read from a great series. Even if you
have not read the ones before, you will enjoy this one to the end.
