Well, this was a cracking good yarn! Not the sort of book I’d usually choose at all, but I enjoyed it.
It’s set in hick town Lucky Shores in the Colorado Rockies, in winter. All I know of Colorado is Dynasty and South Park, and Lucky Shores is definitely more Skeeter’s Bar, South Park, than Krystle and Blake Carrington. The story starts when drifter musician Chet Walker (what a great name!) wanders into town, looking for a gig and a place to rest his head. Lost on a lonely road, though, he sees a motorist suffer a crash, and he runs to save his life – and so his trouble begins.
This is an adventure story, a crime mystery whodunnit thriller, with a nice little bit of romantic suspense to keep Chet from wandering back the way he came. The action picks up on a mountain hike when Chet and his female companion can’t work out who their enemies are…
Kerry Donovan has done ‘slightly scary American hick town’ very well indeed. The characterisation is extremely good, the plot totally works, and the dialogue rips along, tight and realistic, often sharp and funny, too. Oh, and as for Chet Walker – well, you know a character’s come to life on the pages when you start to fancy him, don’t you?
Well written, a proper page turner. Nice!

Thanks, Terry. It sounds like a fabulous read.
Yes, Kerry writes fun stories.
Sounds like a must-read! Excellent review, Terry.
Nice review, Terry….and congrats, Kerry! (See, I am a poet? Ha-ha!) Pinned & shared. 🙂
Thanks everyone. 🙂
Hmm. I’ve read a review where the story matches. I wonder if the cover has been changed. No matter if it has, but it gave me pause. Sounds a juicy read. 🙂
No way, LCTC,
This is the original, the one and only, On Lucky Shores. Published for the first time on 12th January 2016 and typed by my own fair hands. 🙂
I feel like I’ve heard of this character, Chet Walker, before. Not sure if it was another review for the same book or possibly a different one in the series. Great review! 🙂
