Finishing the Sisters of Holmes County series, the third and final book concentrates on the third and final sister of the Hostettler family, Martha. After years trying to start up her own dog breeding business, Martha has found that goal to be very difficult especially after the attacks on her families begin targeting her dogs.
Her father’s prime suspect is his former employee, Luke Friesen, but Luke also happens to be the man Martha is in love with. Desperate to clear Luke’s name, Martha decides to become a detective and clear Luke of any wrongdoing.
I was not expecting the vandal to be the vandal. At first the person behind it felt like they came out of left-field, and even thinking back through the whole series I still feel like the person behind it still does not make complete sense. It didn’t really fit into the clues given in the past two books.
Martha becoming a detective wasn’t my favorite thing about her character, but her love of dogs really shone through. I wish I could have gotten to know Luke a little better, especially considering he plays such a big role in the past two books and a large role in Martha’s life.
