Missing Assumed Dead

When Kameron McBride receives notice she’s the last living relative of a missing man she’s never even heard of the last thing she wants to do is head to some half baked Oregon town to settle his affairs But since she’s the only one available she grudgingly agreesEn route she runs afoul of a couple of hillbillies and their pickup in an accident that doesn’t seemaccidental Especially when th. Kameron McBride reluctantly heads out to a far flung part of Oregon to settle estate affairs for a distant relative She learns he has been missing for uite some time and is now assumed dead Hey that sounds like a great title doesn t itMissing Assumed Dead by Marva Dasef review by Eduardo SuasteguiWithout the benefit of a death certificate much less a body Kameron will soon suspect that her relative succumbed to foul play Of what sort and for what reason Well that s what the story is about Suffice it to say that people in high places have staged a small town cover up that Kameron will have to unravel The mystery elements in the story develop alongside a romance with Deputy Mitch Caldwell and an ongoing relationship with a deceased woman who keeps appearing at opportune times to render warning of impending events Holding mystery romance and the supernatural in balance is no small undertaking and the author must at a minimum receive commendation for telling a coherent story that carries that triadMarva Dasef keeps the pace peppy and moving Information gathering procedural style with conversations sometimes in the form of a couple of pages of flashback is rendered well and succinctly At times especially at the end I would have preferred a action based approach but it never bores and so I must set my preference asideJust as crucial Dasef s characterization feels solid Even minor characters come across as than veneer caricatures a flaw all too common in these types of stories They speak to us with realistic regional dialects that are never overwhelming and often charming Above all they behave in ways that also strike us as real and never shoe horned On that basis alone this story rises above averageDasef also incorporates a significant romance element Before I say I must first stipulate to being neither an expert nor a fan of that particular genre Having said that the romance felt rushed and at times abrupt At times I asked myself if such a uick connection between strangers especially in light of the danger and crisis around them would be realistic or if of a buildup would have yielded a satisfying relationship development On that front I must raise my hands and say well different people might behave differently and move on And so I didIn the end well the ending didn t satisfy this reader enough It struck me as too straightforward almost too convenient with little of the surprise twist element we ve come to expect in this genre Perhaps the case itself lacked sufficient complexity to bring about a satisfying conclusion If I had to put my finger on it I would indeed press it there Were it not for the above mentioned characterization this would have disappointed than it did Yet in the sum total of the story I didn t go away saying Wow but I did appreciate the skill with which the author kept me going where many others would have failed to manage the featOverall I recommend this as a worthy read No doubt those in tune with the crime romance genre will enjoy it even than I didRating 355 stars rounded up to 4 for those venues that don t allow decimals

    This novel is really an excellent galloping read You'll probably go right through it start to finish like I did The only issue I have with the story is the ugly fact that it's too true to life in my neck of the woods for comfort We have people like Marva's bad guys right here in North Idaho no thanks so if you live in a similar zone you mi
