I get really excited when I am reading a book and I realize it is part of a series. Especially if I like the book I’m reading. Typically, when I am reading, I get very invested in the characters. That’s why I like series books so much. The Desert Plains series by Victor Methos is no different. I read Crimson Lake Road in two days. If you are like me and like good character development, then you will want to read this book.

About Crimson Lake Road
From Amazon –
Retiring prosecutor Jessica Yardley can’t turn down one last investigation. This time, it’s a set of murders inspired by a series of grisly paintings called The Night Things. She’s the only one who can catch the killer, who’s left a trail of bodies in a rural community outside of Las Vegas.
But the more Jessica finds out, the less clear her case becomes. Out of options, she’s forced to consult her serial killer ex-husband—to gain additional insight into the crimes and the killer’s motivations.
By the time Jessica realizes that pursuing this case is a deadly mistake, it’s too late to turn back. Can she catch the killer, or will she be the final addition to a killer’s masterpiece?
When I initially read the first book in this series, A Killer’s Wife, I really liked the main character, Jessica Yardley. That didn’t change when I read Crimson Lake Road. In fact, I think I like the character even more. Good news, there is a third book in the series coming out August 17, 2021! I will definitely be adding that one to my Kindle Paperwhite!
If you are thinking about picking up a Kindle, the Paperwhite is one I absolutely love! I got my first one when it first came out about nine years ago, and my husband got me a new one a year or two ago. This is something I use every single day! For those of you with kids, it makes a great gift for kids too. Pair that with a Kindle Unlimited membership, and you have a great gift for them! My kids used to take their Kindle Paperwhites to school with them when they were required to have a chapter book to read every day in middle school. It was much lighter and easier to store in their binder!
