"Haven's Rock. The town may be new, but its roots go down into the permafrost. Even the name is significant. Rock for Rockton, the town where I went to work as a detective four years ago and met a hard-assed sheriff and fell in love--with him and the town and the Yukon itself. Rock for stability, too, a bedrock foundation, the thing we lacked in Rockton.
"And Haven? Well, that's the most important part. Haven's Rock is a sanctuary for those in need. It's a place to hide when the law isn't enough to protect you from persecution for your beliefs or lifestyle, or from a stalker or abusive partner. Rockton was supposed to be that, and it was for some, but for the owners, it was a purely financial investment. This will be different. This time, we're in charge."
This is the first book in a new series; it's also a continuation of Casey Butler's and Eric Dalton's story from Armstrong's Rockton series. And I was so happy and excited to read it because I love Casey and Eric! (Their Newfoundland dog, Storm, is pretty great, too.) They're setting up their new, very secret town, deep in the Yukon wilderness when they're called in to find two missing persons. Their search quickly turns into a murder investigation. And life at Haven's Rock starts to feel eerily similar to the one they left behind in Rockton.
Armstrong has written another engrossing and entertaining mystery. I loved every page of it. (That Yukon setting is a favorite, too.) Wherever Casey and Eric go, I'm happy to follow. This is a definite 5-star read! And I'm excited to find out what happens next in Haven's Rock. (So I hope Kelley Armstrong writes fast.)
