Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 219 - Though Hell Should Bar the Way by David Drake, Always a Lawman by Delores Fossen

Though Hell Should Bar the Way (Lt. Leary, #12)Though Hell Should Bar the Way by David Drake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This may be Lt. Leary # 12 but it is really about Roy Olfetrie. Roy wanted to be in the RNC but his father's action changed his life and not in a good way. Knowing Daniel Leary's wife gets him an offer to go with Daniel and crew on a civilian mission. Of course there is more to the mission than meets the eye and Roy gets caught in the middle of it all. There is a saying out of the frying pan and into the fire and Roy's life is just like the saying. Captured and waking up on a tramp freighter, sold as a slave, making a daring escape, rescuing a lovely lady, and then fighting to save a planet keep our hero very busy. Watching Roy's interaction with Mundy and her shadow adds another dimension to those two characters. Another fun book in the series. I hated to get to the end as I was invested in the characters and wanted more of their stories.

Always a Lawman (Blue River Ranch)Always a Lawman by Delores Fossen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Always a Lawman starts with what seems to be one crime but at the end finds that there were two separate crimes done by two different people. One is solved and one is left hanging. As always Fossen built two very interesting and strong main characters. Jodi Canton and Gabriel Beckett have a history even though they have not seen each other in 10 years. Jodi was the victim in one of the crimes and now it seems that the real killer has returned to finish the job. Gabriel's job is to protect her whether she wants him to or not. A nice blend of romance and danger. First book in this series and I look forward to the next one in the series.
