LOVE Inspired books are really a favorite of mine. They are short books, but packed with great stories. Dana Mentink has become my favorite Author for the LOVE Inspired Suspense book. She is back with the 4th book in the Desert Justice series, Death Valley Hideout. I have read the first 3 books in this series and was excited for Book 4.

Tony Ortega has to keep his little niece and nephew safe as his brother testifies in a high profile case. Tony and his niece and nephew are part of the WITSEC during this time to help protect them from the hit man after them. He takes them to Willow's Hideout, a local in Death Valley to keep them safe. Willow is a good friend of Tony's and wants to do all she can to help. Will they all survive the time of being hidden? Will sparks fly between Tony and Willow? 

WOW, Dana Mentink has written another Suspensefilled book! The storyline captured me from the beginning and I finished the book within 4hrs. There twists and turns in the book really kept me glued to the storyline. I really LOVE how Tony is going to great lengths to keep his niece and nephew safe. Willow is such a wonderful girl who wants to help but also finds herself falling for Tony.  This book is one of Suspense, Romance, Faith and so much more. Although this book reads great as a Stand Alone book, I would recommend starting with Book 1 in the series! HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone who loves Suspense and Romance! AWESOME BOOK! 

Dana Mentink is a USA Today and Publisher’s Weekly bestselling author as well as a two-time American Christian Fiction Writers Carol Award winner, and the recipient of a Holt Medallion.

Wooty woo! We’re back in Death Valley again! So excited about this fourth book in the series because Papa Bear and I have actually returned to this amazing place. (Our previous return trip was stalled for a while due to the virus that shall not be named!) People have asked me, “Why do you love Death Valley so much?” I can only respond that you just have to go there to understand. Is it the vastness of the place? The enormous topographical variety? Maybe it’s the profound quietness that permeates the national park and environs. Then again, it might be the panorama of nighttime stars. (Death Valley National Park is a certified International Dark Sky Park due to its limited light pollution.) Could it be the tenacity of people who live there and survive the one hundred twenty plus degree temperatures in the summer? And how about those animals? The Death Valley pupfish is a teeny little endangered fish that lives in precisely one spot on the globe (Death Valley) and only two places within that range, Salt Creek and Cottonball Marsh. Imagine that! So why set a six book series in Death Valley? Because there’s no more hostile and incredible place I can think of. I hope you will enjoy taking a fictional trip with me there too. Enjoy the adventure, reader friends!
