SPOTLIGHT: Widow's Might by Sandra Brannan


Hello Therians!
 
It's time for another spotlight!!
Widow’s Might is the 3rd installment of the Liv Bergen Mystery Series by Sandra Brannan.


 
 
 
SYNOPSIS
 

With a mind for crime solving and headstrong about protecting her family – Liv Bergen finds herself trailing  a vengeful killer with a crooked sense of justice.

The third Liv Bergen mystery picks up right where the second one left off: the murder of Liv’s future sister-in-law has been solved, but an older rancher has been bludgeoned to death in a style eerily reminiscent of a long-inactive killer known only as the Crooked Man. FBI agent Streeter Pierce, still on assignment in Sturgis, South Dakota, must now turn his sights on tracking down the killer – his nemesis from ten years earlier. Pierce doesn’t complain, though, he’s falling in love with Liv and sets in motion an unconventional plan to recruit her for the FBI’s training camp in Quantico as they work the case together. But is Liv falling for the brilliant, exotic agent Jack Linwood instead?

Once again, Liv’s vast knowledge of the Black Hills of South Dakota – territory made famous by the gold rush that followed General George Custer’s expedition – and the novel folk who live there leads her to unearth critical clues about the Crooked Man. But are facts enough to safeguard Liv’s sister Elizabeth and her friend, an elderly woman battling cancer who was attacked just days after her husband was murdered? Will the frail yet feisty widow recover her strength in time to help Liv thwart the Crooked Man’s murderous plans and fatal blows?

 
 
 
Praise for Widow's Might
 
In “Widow’s Might,” Sandra Brannan does a wonderful job of weaving dramatic events from Custer’s Black Hills Expedition of 1874 into a thoroughly modern mystery involving environmentalists, serial murder and a surprising twist on an age-old motive.

-- Ernest Grafe and Paul Horsted, “Exploring with Custer”



“Good and Scary.”

-- Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal



“For hardcore crime-fiction fans.”

-- Shelley Mosely, Booklist

About the Author 
 


Sandra Brannan debuted as an author in 2010 with In the Belly of Jonah, the first installment of her acclaimed, Liv Bergen mystery series. The novel was chosen as an Indie Next List Notable by independent bookstores and librarians across the country and went into a second printing just one month after its release.

Sandra’s success in the literary world led to her being named one of the top 25 most fabulous women by Black Hills Magazine.

Much like her character Liv Bergen, Sandra has spent her career in the mining industry. Working her way up from day laborer in the company her grandfather founded to a top executive in the family business wasn’t easy, as Sandra often received threats from those opposed to mining. These life experiences gave her a first-person perspective into the high-stakes scenarios of which she writes.

Sandra was raised the seventh of nine children in loving home not far from Rapid City, South Dakota. After living in Colorado (the setting for In the Belly of Jonah), Wyoming, Washington D.C. and Washington state, Sandra returned to her hometown where she lives with her husband. Their budding family consists of four boys and three grandchildren.

The second book in her mystery-thriller series, Lot’s Return to Sodom, releases June 1 and revolves around the legendary Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota. Sandra’s forthcoming titles include Widow’s Might and Noah’s Rainy Day.
