This is such an amazing book! To quote Zoe, "Wow." There's so much going on, within the pages.
● Who killed the County Commissioner (and made it look like an accident)?
● Who's behind the increasing drug trade, now including meth, in Vance Township, PA? There's been an epidemic of OD deaths.
● What's happened to Logan (the son of Zoe's BFF Rose)? He's been living with his girlfriend and her parents in New Mexico, but she and Logan have disappeared.Zoe goes with her BFF Rose to New Mexico, to search for Logan, while Pete (Vance Township Police Chief, and BF) is kept busy at home, with the murders and drug investigations.

There are many plot twists along the way, before everything comes together in the end in a very exciting climax - twice!

As always with Author Annette Dashofy's books, I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!

Zoe Chambers is a Paramedic and Deputy Coroner in Vance Township, Pennsylvania; and she also runs a boarding stable. So when one of her boarders' horses returns riderless, Zoe sets out to find the man she hopes is merely injured. But instead she finds the body of County Commissioner Dale Springfield, and at first glance it appears his horse was spooked and he fell and hit his head. Yet when Zoe does a preliminary examination, she thinks the body is colder than it should be for a recent accident, and wonders about the time of death.

Yet Dale's death might not be an accident after all - the town is divided on a company that wants to do local fracking - and Dale was definitely on the 'no' side. So who will benefit the most if and when the deal goes through, and did anyone hate him enough to want him out of the way permanently? With a host of suspects but no solid clues, Pete has his work cut out for him on this one.

There is also another problem going on in their town - young people are overdosing on heroin and meth, but Sheriff Pete Adams isn't sure which one is the culprit, or where the teens are getting their drugs. Even with the help of Detective Wayne Baronick - a sometimes-thorn in Pete's side - every lead they have runs down to a dead end.

But even with these crimes going on, Zoe's put front and center in another investigation. It seems her best friend Rose's son Logan has disappeared out in New Mexico - right after his girlfriend's body was found in the desert; he's not answering his cell phone, and it turns out that law enforcement aren't the only ones looking for him. Roped into traveling to the Southwest with Rose's family to help search for Logan, Zoe, although thousands of miles away, might just find that distance doesn't keep danger from finding you...

No Way Home is the fifth book in the Zoe Chambers mystery and in my opinion, so far it's the best of the group (which is a pretty feat, considering the other four were quite good themselves). We start out with several deaths in Pennsylvania that may be linked somehow, and then follow Zoe in New Mexico on her quest not only to find Logan, but get answers as to who murdered his girlfriend. Rose is frantic with worry and convinced that the boy she loves like a son is innocent, it's up to Zoe - with the help of Logan's sister Allison - to find out the truth of the matter.

The author switches deftly from the scenarios going on in both states without skipping a beat. You are at first in rural Pennsylvania, with its rolling hills, brisk snowy weather, and close-knit community of people, then are transported seamlessly to New Mexico, with its jagged mountains, bright sunrises, and desert terrain; and people as mysterious as the mountains themselves - a new experience for Zoe.

Still, with each mystery going on separately yet at the same time, we are drawn deeply into the multifarious story line, anxiously awaiting the outcome of both. Without giving too much away, let it be known that while there are plenty of twists and turns along the way, Ms. Dashofy spins a tightly-knit tale that delights the mind with vivid descriptions of regions and people, bringing it to life.

When at last we reach the end of the story it comes together beautifully; and as we learn the truth it is altogether believable and well-composed; with a gamut of emotions that elicits the same from the readers of the story. Highly recommended and I look forward to the next in the series. ( )

This is one of my favorite series by Henery Press. Zoe Chambers is an Emergency Medical Technician. She is also working to become a detective. She is also dating - maybe more - the police chief of Vance Township, Pete Adams.

In this book, we find someone has shot the county commissioner and there's a girl who's died of an overdose all in the same day. There's not a lot of murders in this small township. So for there to be two in one day - okay something's going on.

This leads both Pete and Zoe scrambling to figure it out. Pete because he's the chief and Zoe because the commissioner died while riding his horse which was boarded in her stable and on her trails.

There's lots more bodies, intrigue, shootings, suspense, and mystery with a whole list of suspects in this unputdownable book. It may be a cozy mystery, but this one had my heart beat racing.

Thanks to Henery Press for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I am not sure what I expected when I got this book to read, but I can say it is going on my favorite books list. I loved everything about this book. The characters are phenomenal and the mystery is so intense I couldn't stop reading. If you have not read a book from this author you are missing out on a superb writing style. I was so engrossed in the story I could almost imagine it being a movie.

Zoe is a woman with many talents and has nerves of steel. She is able to keep calm in the most chaotic situations. As she gets ready to hit the trail at the boarding facility she runs, a lone horse shows up. Where is the rider? It seems odd to Zoe and she starts looking for the rider. What she discovers will set into motion a mystery that will span the countryside and into another state. There has been a lot of friction going on in town due to fracking . I found this very interesting and wanted to learn more. The author does a great job of explaining what it is. I also had some inside information from my husband who works in the oil and gas industry. Was someone out to stop any plans dealing with fracking in their town?

The people in town are shocked to learn who the person was that Zoe found. Let's just say the person was well known and had maybe upset a certain group in town. The brilliant writing takes us on a journey that also involves some mysterious deaths of young people. Someone very dear to Zoe turns up missing and she finds herself going to New Mexico to search for him. This is where I found myself on the edge of my seat. The action really takes off and Zoe is kept wondering who to trust .

There is one character that really stood out and I quickly found myself liking him. He is known as 'pony boy" or "Yellowhorse' as some call him. He was someone I would want to have on my side if I was in danger. He is very smart, knows the land well and will protect those with him at all costs. The story is riveting and I loved how the author ties it all together. This is one story that keeps you guessing with an ending you won't see coming.

I received a copy of this book from Great Escapes Book Tour. The review is my honest opinion. ( )

This was a great addition to a series that I have already grown to love. Zoe and Pete are back and this time are left trying to solve a couple murders. Zoe has to go to New Mexico when he friend Rose's son is a suspect in a murder and Pete is trying to figure out who killed county commissioner Dale Springfield. Pete also is left to deal with a sudden rise in overdoses.

I really enjoyed both Zoe and Pete's storylines in this book and how they eventually tied together. Zoe finds herself once again in danger (what else is new) but she receives help this time from a Navajo man who tries to stop a dangerous man from killing her.

I look forward to reading more about Zoe and Pete. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley. ( )
