WithAVengeance-cover-FRONTParamedic Zoe Chambers and the rest of rural Monongahela County’s EMS and fire personnel are used to wading into the middle of trouble to rescue the sick and the injured. But when someone with an ax to grind seeks retribution by staging accident scenes and gunning down the first responders, Zoe finds herself forced to not only treat her own brethren on the front lines, but also, in her role as deputy coroner, seek out whoever is killing her friends.

At the same time, Vance Township Police Chief Pete Adams races to track down a gun, a mysterious all-terrain vehicle, and the sniper before Zoe goes back on duty, placing herself—and Pete—firmly in the gunman’s crosshairs.

It is the kind of book you don’t put down, not even for a second, because you really feel like it is happening before you eyes.

I couldn’t put it down.The characters are so well developed and with the strong story line this book brings you into the story and keeps you captive until the end.
~Shelley’s Book Case

Ms. Dashofy hid the killer’s motive well, making for a very suspenseful read.
~Back Porchervations

Small town, wonderful characters, and the main plot and the subplots woven together with an expert hand.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

This book is very well written with a dramatic plot with twists and turns that were unexpected. This was a truly engaging and delightful read.



My Review


Leo Review sm

This is the first of the Zoe Chambers books that I have read and it seems to be a fantastic series. Being a 4th volume to the series, one would expect the characters to be well developed and it is obvious that this core group of characters has been well explored over the course of the series.

The well woven mystery allowed one plot twist after another to open up the possibility of another suspect or motive. While I can honestly say I would never have guessed ‘Whodunit’, I can look back over the story I just read and say that I always felt something was just bit off about that particular character and that is a great way to end a mystery.

I love how small town gossip and drama played the perfect foil for this tale, leaving the solution up until the very end. I would like to read the previous books to see if there is some clue to the outcome in the backstories along the way through the series. I would certainly enjoy reading more about these characters.

  1. I have yet to read one of this series I am so hoping this will change that so I can read sooner rather than later. These posts have been so intriguing.
