Crook's Hollow by Robert Parker

Someone is trying to kill Thor.  With pure luck he evades death by a piece of farm equipment.  It doesn't take him long to figure out why:  His land is worth money to a developer.  But who is trying to kill him.  Is it his family or his girlfriend's family?  

Black Rose Writing and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you). It has been published and you can buy a copy now.

Remember the tale of the Hatfields and McCoys?  This rivalry is even worse.  The two families in Crook's Hollow hate each other and always have.  That makes things difficult for Thor because his girlfriend is from the other family.  Neither side wants to see them together.  But he loves her and doesn't want to give her up.

This is very twisted tale with lots of people getting killed, all over greed.  Everything that Thor believed in was shattered.  He's always been independent and took care of himself but he's got a long road ahead of him as he recovers from the knowledge of who was trying to kill him and how he was betrayed.  This is truly a tale of horror and will stick with me for a while.
