Finding Justice by Kathi Daley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I enjoyed Kathi Daley’s Finding Justice. It is the first book in the Rescue Alaska Mystery series.
I live in Alaska and I thought the author did a good job depicting life here. I live in Southeast and Rescue is set farther north so a bit of a difference weather wise. The dangers of cold, snow and wildlife, though, are well known throughout the state. They are a part of everyday life no matter where you live. Pretty much, unless you live close to Anchorage or in Anchorage, your choices of entertainment, restaurants and shopping are limited. All of that was presented well. As was the opposite end. No matter how small the town, drugs can be located. Dogs, (as well as cats), aren’t always taken care of the way they should be. Matter of fact the local dog shelter might be housing any number of other household pets. I once came across ferrets..for weeks. And occasionally murder happens.
I love the way the author incorporates the paranormal into the story. It is, for me, believable. It isn’t all just put out either. It is unfolding. As Harmony learns more about her power so do we. I like that a lot. It gives us a chance to grow with Harmony. I absolutely loved the fact that an animal shelter is part of the series. Reading about its development is going to be wonderfully refreshing. The mystery was well done in my opinion. Their were suspects, investigations and surprises. There was even the possibility of romance..though exactly with whom may be as intriguing as the mysteries as this series develops.
I am looking forward to reading more of this series and more from this author. Kathi Daley has numerous books and several series going on. I found no objectionable language or sex scenes. The drug use, while accepted by the people, was not graphically or gloriously depicted. I personally would have no problem with an older teen reading it. This is, of course, my opinion.
