The intensity and rocking pace of Promise of Hunters Ridge which is the third and last in the Hunters Ridge trilogy had me holding my breath while I sped through the terror and courage of this novel What an amazing ride Romantic suspense heavy on the suspense just the way I love it Highly recommendedWith thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my Shadow of the Templar digital copy to read and review Rather enjoyable read from a good Australian author It finished off the series well Promise of Hunters Ridge closes this suspense series and probablyoesn t function too well as a standalone Unforgiven (Warriors for the Light despite the bite sized recounts of the sinister forces at work in Hunters Ridge But itoes however finally give a resolution between the always bickering Mia Morgan and Ben Bowden the former of which typically allowing an almighty grudge to colour every frustrating interaction between them I picked up this book with a huge sense of anticipation and found that there were parts that I really like the suspense the action that really picked up after the first half and parts that I Buried Sins (The Three Sisters Inn, didn t The pacing is slow at firstetailing the separate aspects of Mia s and Ben s lives before Six Days in Leningrad drawing their paths together but the build up is rewarding especially when the actions scenes finally kicked in Even if I found it implausible that an entire force couldn t nab a wanted killer whose MO was too obvious Barrie writes a stunning mob like finish that somehow made me think ofemocracy rallies in classical France Having been kidnapped by a psychopath before Mia s obsession to train herself for this killer s return has shaped her to become a rather unpleasant untrusting person throw in the stalwart The Darkness detective who isetermined to solve this complicated case while keeping the people around him safe and the Flyboy difficult unyielding woman comes out full force She makeseals with unsavoury characters refuses to give into law enforcement because of her past and pretty much A Dark Sicilian Secret does the exact opposite of what she shouldn t whichoes paint her with a TSTL broad brush from the beginning and finds herself a coward when it comes to emotional issues But Sarah Barrie peppers these bits of Mia s character with instances of her Wolf Creek Homecoming (Wolf Creek determination and courage whichoes make Mia a multifaceted character than I expected And all this in contrast to Ben Bowden whom I loved for his utter Black Beech and Honeydew: An Autobiography dedication to justice and to her Despite his lack of sensitivity in several places there wasn t ever a time when I thought him any less capable ofoing whatever he needed to At the Italians Command doand only wished that Mia matched that same fervour he had for her It s a series that had gotten me nostalgic by the time I finished and while I thought AllyCam s book the best of the lot MiaBen s story might actually come a close second Promise of Hunters Ridge is the final book in the Hunters Ridge Series by Sarah Barrie Readers of Promise of Hunters Ridge will follow the investigation into finding Rob Littleton

This book continues the wow factor in the Hunters Ridge Series although I say that Shadows of Hunters Ridge number 2 still remains my favourite I was very excited when I realised that I wouldn t have too long to wait for the third book Promise of Hunters Ridge is Mia s story and at the end of the second book we knew that she would be the next target It s not long into the book that Mia receives a phone call from a woman who says Your running out of time This mysterious woman is killed soon after and a number 5 is etched into her back With what Mia thought was just a knife marking on her back when she was previously held captive it now becomes obvious this mark was a 0 and so the count The Maid of Lorne down beginsThere are twists and turns galore in this book Detective Ben Bowden is back and trying his hardest to protect a prickly Mia and a new understanding is reached between them This is where the book fell a little for me as I was totally frustrated with them both around the 80% mark But as true followers of the series are aware we all know where it s goingI thorough enjoyed this series and I really would love to see everyone again I think what I really missed in this book is not having much too with Lee and Ebony There were very few mentions of them both but they still had regular pizza nights so they were always there but notI believe this series is best read in order to get a good understanding of all the interactions between the characters and continuing story line I think it would lose some of it s impact if the ynamics are not understood but on t let that stop anyone from jumping in at number 2 or 3 I m sure it would still be a fantastic read if your looking for a good romantic suspense storyThank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for a copy to read and

and their careful and considerate writing has let me catch up on storylines without having read any previous titles Promise of Hunters Ridge is as much a standalone read as it is book 3 in a series Based on my enjoyment I have no hesitation in recommending the earlier books in the series The characters are fabulous and I am confident the stories will be eually as good as Promise of Hunters Ridge which hooked me from the beginning It had me awake and reading through the night Even though I was tired I had to get to the endSarah Barrie you have Command Performance done an excellent job and I love all the characters except of course the bad guy 1 Legacy of Hunters Ridge 2 Shadows of Hunters Ridge Promise of Hunters Ridge was a solid finale but it wasefinitely not the best book in the series let alone the best book by Barrie Ebony and Lee s story in Shadows of Hunters Ridge set the bar pretty high for Mia and Ben and unfortunately it was just not uite the fast paced emotional ending I was hoping for My biggest problem with this was that it felt like a romance than a romantic thriller I know the line between those two subgenres is fairly grey but Barrie has Loveknot (Welcome to Tyler, done a fantastic job at making her previous novels solidly thriller y Promise of Hunters Ridge has been the exception which for the novel meant to wrap up the Hunter Ridge mystery is fairlyisappointing The twists were predictable The ending was a little rushed It was a tad unsatisfying I The Perfect Blend did like that we got to see of the legalpolice procedural side of it from Ben s perspective rather than merely the victims and their LIs but itid not make enough of a ifference to completely istract me from the subpar thrills It also Wanted (Sealed with a Kiss did not help that I struggle to connect to Mia compared to Ally and Ebony Iid really love how she remained such an unflinchingly Rayuan Sang Bos [Seduced By the Boss] driven.
