Stripped Bare: A Novel
Kate Fox is living her dreams in the Nebraska Sandhills. She lives on a cattle ranch with her sheriff husband, Ted, and her niece, Carly. One night she receives a call from Ted’s ex-girlfriend that Carly’s grandfather has been shot as well as her husband. Not long after, Carly goes missing. Kate is determined to get to the bottom of this case, and along the way she learns a lot of her dream life might have been a lie, which leaves her feeling Stripped Bare. As she gets closer to unraveling the truth, the more dangerous it becomes, but she is not going to stop until she gets some answers.
If you enjoy reading the Joanna Brady series by J.A. Jance, I think you will enjoy this book. Kate Fox and Joanna Brady are very similar in my mind, both are strong, tough women who are going to get to the bottom of the case no matter what. There are still plenty of differences, so it feels familiar without feeling like exactly the same story or person. I personally enjoyed that aspect. I liked Kate Fox from the beginning. She felt like someone you could easily relate to. The story-line is great and kept me up at night trying to guess who did it. I hope it’s a series because it is definitely left open enough for more books. I would also love to know what happens next in the life of Kate Fox.
