Book Review: Scent of Rain and Lightning

Title The Scent of Rain and Lightning: A Novel
Author Nancy Pickard
Rating ****
Tags mystery, stand alone, cowboys, ranches 

Nancy Pickard is an author I've always liked. In this book, Jody Linder is a young women with a tragic past. Twenty-five years ago, when she was three, her father was shot and killed and her mother disappeared. Jody was raised by her grandparents with help from her uncles. Now the man who was convicted of her father's murder is being released from jail, and Jody doesn't know how to handle it, especially when there is another death.

The book is another winner for Pickard, with good plotting and characters. Well worth reading, though I'm still a little disgruntled that she abandoned her excellent Jenny Cain series.
