I just love Deborah Coates's spare, Spartan writing style. It is so evocative of the place that I can feel the South Dakota wind as I read. I was a bit dissapointed in the showdown, which fizzled rather then banged, but everything else- top notch.

Two short stories by Deborah Coates, who is quickly moving up the line of my favorite authors. Though the second story feels more like the beginning of a longer novel then it does a complete short story.

Simple evocative language with just a hint of magic. This is Coates at her best. And this is a complete short story, not just an introduction to a longer novel. I would like to see more from these characters, but the story is complete.

Between 3.5 and 4. Slightly rough around the edges but first book in a series is usually rough. Enjoyed the premise and the contrast between the innocent appearing cop and the jaded Staff Sergeant along with the non-typical gender roles. Will read the next one.

3.5 starsI found Wide Open to be a suspenseful, tension filled Mystery with a hint of romance and ghosts!! I really enjoyed this one. I found it to be slow paced at times but this wasn't a bad thing, it helped set the mood and style of the book. It was so easy to slip into the setting, it is describ...

A really strong debut and a captivating read marred only by an ending I struggled to find credible. It's the method of the ending, not the action of it. It's not well enough set up for me to believe or understand why it happens, and, as a result, I found myself disappointed ultimately despite not be...
