She Can Tell

She Can, #2

“She Can Tell” by Melinda Leigh was a wonderful read. I was so enthralled with the story line that I read this book in two days. Rachel Parker returns to her home in Pennsylvania after a riding accident causes her to forego her career. She is a person who takes care of herself and those she loves with a passion, but doesn’t let anyone into her life. She has to turn for help after vandals wreak havoc with her horse stable business and also her person. Someone is after her. Is it her brother-in-law who abuses her sister, or the old friend from childhood, or someone involved in the new subdivision that is being built? Is she being targeted because the family farm has a history, or because she might find something left behind decades ago? After she saves her sister and children from an abusive husband, things start to escalate. The chief of police Mike O’Connell becomes involved in the situation and with her. He is an over-worked community servant who doesn’t have enough manpower to handle all the sinister happenings, but who takes the time to make sure that Rachel is safe. The story builds in intensity and brings these two people together in a way that Mike wants and Rachel fears. I was hooked on this book from the beginning. Ms. Leigh is a very gifted suspense writer and I will be looking for more of her books.
