BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Short Investigations by Clair M. Poulson


In the sleepy town of Heber, a strange 911 call is made to report an unthinkable crime: someone has murdered a woman . . . and her body has been found in Rhett Ketchum's barn. Rhett, a well-known rodeo cowboy, is placed firmly at the top of the suspect list—the only problem is, he's innocent. As officers search tirelessly for the evidence needed to lock him up, Rhett takes matters into his own hands.
Max and Patches Fisher are the father-daughter duo behind the unconventional PI firm Short Investigations, and they agree to undertake the task of proving Rhett's innocence. Soon the list of suspects begins to grow, and Rhett feels a glimmer of hope—and an undeniable attraction to Patches. But when the officers on the case become targets themselves, it seems they may be the ones in need of protection. As events take a deadly turn, it's up to Max and Patches to uncover the truth before time runs out.


This is another suspense from Poulson who does such a nice job with his law enforcement stories.  This one revolves around a detective agency called Short Investigations because of the lack of height in the owner (less than 5-feet-tall).  Rhett Ketchum is called home from his rodeo tour when the dead body of a former girlfriend is found in his barn and he's reported as the murderer.  Taking the advice of his attorney, he hires Short Investigations to help prove his innocence.  With a rival working as a deputy determined to see him arrested for the crime, Rhett is understandably nervous.  What he doesn't expect is to be caught between his attraction to Patches Fisher, one of the 'short' investigators, and Detective Kori Davis.  But when attempts are made on their lives, it becomes clear that romance has to take a back seat until the the perpetrator is caught.  As always, Poulson's law enforcement details are spot on and interesting.  The twists and turns that the case takes makes for entertaining mystery.  The inclusion of an old cold case involving the investigators from Short Investigations makes for an interesting side story.
