Within In My Life, the third book of the Hart's Ridge small-town mystery series, Deputy Taylor Gray investigates a triple murder alongside her unofficial partner, Detective Shane Weaver. While juggling her professional duties, Taylor also struggles to navigate personal decisions and determine what it will take to help bring balance to her life.

Meanwhile, Catherine, recently released from a 20-year prison sentence, attempts to reintegrate into society, but faces rejection from potential employers and distrust from her adult daughters. Will she be able to find the stability and peace that she longs for?

As readers delve deeper into the town's secrets, they will discover the darker side of Hart's Ridge, proving that even seemingly perfect places have hidden flaws. Bratt masterfully weaves a thrilling tale that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

In My Life is book three of the new Hart's Ridge small-town mystery series, written by Kay Bratt, million-copy best-selling author of Wish Me Home and True to Me.

My thoughts about In My Life ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First lines—"Second chances should be stronger than secrets, or at least that's what Taylor chose to believe and has spent the last six months practicing."

I didn't think this series could get any more stressful or intense. Boy, was I wrong. Kick it off with a triple murder and you've got some serious stuff going on—Taylor's life just got kicked into high gear! The whole community is on edge and will be until the killer or killers are apprehended. 

One of the things that I absolutely love about this series is not only the fact that there is a puzzling crime to solve, but there is also the personal side of Taylor and her totally dysfunctional family. I love getting to know all of them and every book gives me a deeper understanding of each person. The drama of the crimes and the drama of family. Gotta love it!

The Hart's Ridge series just keeps getting better and better and I'm so excited when the next installment is available. Book #4, Borrowed Time, is coming out April 11! This is series you don't want to miss. I highly recommend In My Life, as well as this whole series. I know you will be looking forward to more stories, just like I am. 

I received a copy of In My Life from the author and this is my honest opinion.
