THE SHERIFF OF SAGE BEND
When Miranda Ward's sister Shannon disappears right before she's scheduled to testify against a suspected murderer, Miranda is sure something bad has happened. She turns to ex-fiance and sheriff Lucas Blaylock to help her find Shannon, even though he left her standing at the altar seven years earlier. In The Sheriff of Sage Bend (3), Brenda Mott maintains the suspense and keeps the plot moving. But while the tension between Lucas and Miranda seems real, it's resolved a little too quickly.
