Guest Review from Donna
What I think you should know:
Death Valley Hideout, a Romantic Suspense by Dana Mentink is the fourth book in the Desert Justice series. This book does give updates and spoilers for the characters in the previous books, while it could be read as a standalone I would recommend reading the other books in the series first. This book features Willow Duke and her friend Tony.
What I think about this book:
Mentink always takes her readers on a fast paced adventure. It was interesting to get to know Willow and her nurturing heart. It was hard to read how she had lost trust in herself. Tony was a complex character, he was torn between his devotion for his family, wanting to be different from his past and his desire for a future of his choosing. I really enjoyed Carter and Bee, they were delightful and very well written! I loved this installment in the series and can’t wait to see what happens next in Death Valley!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Dana
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!
