Attention Tami Hoag fans: Colleen Thompson's SALT MAIDEN = plot-bombing hotness
Colleen Thompson's backlist novels are out of the vault and burning up the charts on Amazon. My favorite: The Salt Maiden is about a woman who braves the heat, snakes and scorpions in a particularly desolate stretch of Texas to find her wayward sister and stumbles into a local mystery - and a complicated relationship with a beautiful but damaged man. Well-drawn characters, dramatic atmosphere, simmering sexual tension and startling plot twists.
Shoutout to my fellow "Longmire" fans: You should read Thompson's Sheriff Justine Wofford books, Beneath Bone Lake and Touch of Evil.
