|Judgement Call by JA Jance|
latest in the Joanna Brady series. Joanna Brady is a sheriff in Cochise County, Arizona (that includes Tombstone and Bisbee, if you remember Wyatt Earp being there in the 1880s). This is the 15th in the series and I loved it as I loved the others. Joanna's dad and late husband were sheriffs before she became one. Her second husband Butch is a lovable guy and mystery writer. There are a lot of great relationships in this book as with others in the series, and you need not read them in order (but with any series it helps as the characters develop and age).
This book focuses on a high school principal with a mysterious past who is murdered in the desert. Her identity is uncovered in this great mystery with colorful characters. When another murder occurs the pieces start coming together. There's also a resolution in Joanna's father's accidental death. I can't wait for the next book! - Rob
