Dana Vanover has come to Devilís Claw,
Texas to look for her sister. Itís important to find her or
a little girl will lose her life. She does not only find her
sister, she finds a mystery surrounding the salt domes of
the region and the people of Devilís Claw. And now, it seems
someone wants her dead.
Sheriff Jay Eversole has come home to
Devilís Claw to hide, mostly from himself. He has come home
fighting demons that no one else can see or hear. His time
in Iraq was not kind to him. He knows that if his problems
get out, the fine people of his hometown wonít want him as
Then a body is found in the salt caves
and both their lives are cast into the spotlight. There is a
mystery surrounding the body and she is soon dubbed The Salt
Maiden. Why is she there and who killed her? Itís up to Jay
and Dana to find out. The hard part will be keeping their
hands off each other, while they follow the clues given to
them, in order to keep anyone else from being killed.
The Salt Maidenis set up
to keep you guessing. I love a puzzle paired with a hot
romance. Dana and Jay need each other, only they donít know
that. They both have emotional wounds that need healing.
Watching them come to terms with their ghosts and admit they
have fallen in love is all part of the intensity heaped into
Ms Thompsonís work. I really enjoyed the whole thing but the
ending was my favorite part. I loved it.
