Rating: 5 out of 5 stars – outstanding read!
To be honest, it’s been a while since I read one of Margaret Coel’s Wind River Mysteries. Winter’s Child was like coming home after a long, boring business trip. Sometimes authors kind of lose their grip on their characters after a number of books in a series, but not Margaret Coel. Vicky and Father John were there waiting just as I remembered them.
This is really two stories, Vicky’s involving the murder/death of another attorney with whom she was going to co-counsel an adoption case involving a white baby and Indian parents and her search for a client who needs to turn himself in. At the same time Father John is entertaining his niece who is doing graduate work on the life of a white woman who was taken by the Indians over a century earlier. We know Vicky and the Father are going to collide, but figuring out when these stories will intertwine makes this a wonderful page turner.
5 out of 5 stars – it just doesn’t get any better than this!
Have a great read!
