Book Review | Vengeance in the Wind by Judy Bruce #mystery #suspense #bookreview

Title: Vengeance in the Wind

Author: Judy Bruce

Genre: Mystery, Suspense

Book Blurb:

Wind Series Book 6: Following a trip to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Megan Docket, a young attorney, helps her friends plan and execute a haunted house. When a murder occurs there, she must expose the killer to protect the people who are falsely accused by a zealous prosecutor. When her mother and her law firm staff are held hostage by the killers, she uses her wits and moxie to stage a rescue.

My Review:

Winds of vengeance shake Megan Docket to the core but like every other time, she’s unsure in what form it will take. Megan and her posse of family and friends are helping put together a haunted house. When a man is murdered in said haunted house, it’s up to Megan to unmask the killer. Things are never easy for Megan, especially when a slimy prosecutor threatens to take her down a few notches. With the help of all the people at the haunted house, Megan unravels who’s responsible and has to bring them down. Will she succeed or has she just put those she loves most in the crosshairs of an old enemy out for revenge?

Vengeance in the Wind takes Halloween and adds its own evil spin to this holiday. Like every story in the Wind series, Judy Bruce casts new light on social issues. In this installment, she returns to the drug trade and how it affects not only the user and dealer but the whole community. The daily lives of Megan’s tight-knit town tugs at the heartstrings. I feel like I’m part of Megan’s group, not an outsider. The mystery is multi-faceted with a full cast of suspects and witnesses. By the time I reached the end, I had to catch my breath. The ending was pure adrenaline.

If you’re a fan of small-town mysteries you can’t put down, pick up Vengeance in the Wind. Even though it is part of a series, it is a standalone. Judy Bruce fills in the gaps on previous events so you can follow the story. Highly recommend!
