GiveAway & Review of Deborah Coates Book, Wide Open


This book seems to be qualified as a paranormal romance. I saw it more as a mystery with ghosts. A soldier serving in Afghanistan is called home due to the death of a sister. Said soldier needs to solve the mystery of the dead sister within the 10 day compassionate leave.
Ms. Coates developed a very particular, prickly and self reliant protagonist. Sgt. Michaels is frequently unlikeable and prone to being opinionated. Starting fights in bars and punching people seems to be her method of communication. I enjoy strong female protagonists and Ms. Coates delivers.
The description of prairie living and stoic personalities was detailed and rich. The cool chill on your neck could be from the prairie wind or the touch of a ghost. I would have liked a touch more back story on the villain.
This was well done and a very interesting read.
I highly recommend.
