I enjoyed this most of the time The quickness of the romance between the two main characters didn t sit well with me Loved the author s knowledge of Oregon Never knew the state had a desert Lots of twists and suspense I would recommend this to readers of romance. This is a wonderful tale set right here in my home state of Oregon.Fictional with the flair and feeling of what the terrain and weather is like on our side of the Cascade Mountains adding in the mystery, flips and turns of a very good mystery thriller that only Marva Dasef in her descriptive and unique way can capture.I could not put this story down until the last word was read I give Missing, Assumed Dead thumbs up Intriguing story by an excellent writer I thoroughly enjoyed the reading and will be on the lookout for of her adult novels I m hoping for a sequel to this one, because I love the characters and story line. Goodthe woman who gets a letter from a court department in another state telling her about a relative that she didn t know she had. 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 quite some time and is now assumed dead Hey, that sounds like a great title, doesn t it Missing, 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 triad.Marva 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 aside.Just 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 average.Dasef 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 quick 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 did.In 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 feat.Overall, I recommend this as a worthy read No doubt those in tune with the crime romance genre will enjoy it even than I did Rating 3.5 5 stars, rounded up to 4 for those venues that don t allow decimals July 2011 Release from MuseItUp Publishing July You Gotta Read Covers FIRST PLACE
