Another solid book from Sharon Sala. This is the third in a trilogy. Here is the sister's story. Her high school sweetheart who went to prison for killing his father comes home after 18 years to clear his name and find out who really did it. This one like the other two in the series is full of the goings on on Rebel Ridge. There is a lot of unemployment which gives the author plenty of scope for lazy and/or desperate people to get up to all kinds of mischief.

This book works well as a suspense story. We're along for the ride to find out who killed Lincoln's father. SS is particularly adept at making everyone well rounded. Some of the villains are very villainous, some are weak and fall into mischief, some show signs of redemption. A lot of the time in this series I really enjoyed the secondary characters who were teetering on the edge more than the upright and totally righteous hero. Another thing that SS does well is include people from previous books in a natural and effective way. These people are not shoe horned in, but rather are integral to the story.


What you won't get much of here is romance. They were childhood sweethearts who immediately fell back in love. No conflict there at all and in fact very little heat.

This story succeeds best as a illustration of how people in a isolated and insular society become all tangled up together. Add in great characterization and it is totally worth the read. Just don't read it for the romance. ( )

Lincoln Fox and Meg Walker were friends and lovers until he was falsely accused and convicted of killing his father. Lincoln did his time and then stayed away from his former hometown until an accident brings visions of his father telling him to return.

Meanwhile, Meg married another man then divorced him when he went to jail for murder. On his deathbed, he confesses to the brother of the man he killed that he buried money he took from his victim and that Meg can tell him where to find it. Rather than just ask Meg, the man stalks and terrorizes her.

The characters are well done. The Walker family is a close knit clan that can count on each other in times of trouble. Lincoln comes across as a man doing his best to "do unto others" and help them out, even if he is a bit too infallible to be realistic. The story follows Lincoln's efforts to prove himself innocent and find out who really did the deed as well as trying to find out who is stalking Meg. I normally do not like sex scenes and particularly not those outside of marriage, but there was only one in this book and considering that if Lincoln hadn't been framed, the two might have been married long ago . . . I didn't downgrade my rating for this book. ( )

An enjoyable romantic suspense with plenty of action that moved right along. It had a good plot and I liked the rebuilding of the relationship. Both the hero and heroine characters felt realistic. Convicted murderer Lincoln returns home after 18 years to clear his name and encounters childhood sweetheart Meg.

Meg Walker Lewis is a strong and independent woman. The love of her life was torn away from her at the age of seventeen when he was falsely accused, wrongfully convicted and sent away to prison. Later her husband was rightfully convicted of murder; she quickly divorced him. Meg has spent the better part of the past decade building a life. She lives on her family's farm with a few chickens and a milk cow and earns a living by quilting. All of Meg's family lives close by: brothers, sisters-in-law, mother, stepfather, and stepbrothers. Meg wishes for more from her life but is content with what she has for the moment. Things quickly change when she realizes someone has broken into her house while she was asleep! Things go downhill from there because her stalker isn't willing to leave her alone, even when his identity is revealed.

Lincoln Fox's life was turned upside down when he was a teenager. His father was beaten to death, the family house burned to the ground, and Lincoln was wrongfully convicted of the crime and served four years in prison. He thought he'd never return to Kentucky after he left and he's made a nice life as a contractor in Texas. After a work-related accident, Lincoln has a dream about his father and returns to Kentucky to clear his name. Upon his arrival in Kentucky, Lincoln quickly becomes involved in local happenings that involve his former love, Meg Walker Lewis. Lincoln is able to identify the stalker and then saves Meg after a car crash. The two quickly find that there's still a spark between them and decide to see where it takes them.

'Til Death is the third book in the Rebel Ridge series featuring the Walker family by Ms. Sala. Meg is an accomplished woman and although she feels her life is missing something (or someone), she's more than willing to maintain the status quo. Lincoln Fox is an accomplished man and only wants to clear his name and find his father's murderer. He doesn't even realize his life is missing something until it states him in the face. The romance between Meg and Lincoln seems to take up where it left off. Their lives quickly become intertwined as they search for new information to clear Lincoln's name and protect Meg from her stalker. I found 'Til Death to be a fast romantic mystery-suspense read that featured some twisted bad guys. I know when I start reading a book written by Ms. Sala that the bad guys will get their comeuppance and that good will prevail (a typical HEA [happy ever after]), but I never know how it will be achieved and the journey taken is never disappointing. For those of you that love romantic mystery-suspense and HEAs, you'll want to read 'Til Death. ( )

'Til Death (Rebel Ridge, #3)

I have had 'Til Death for awhile to read. If I had realized what series this was I would have read it awhole lot sooner. I like the Rebel Ridge series.
They have suspense, lots of action,some romance, lots of family that are close and supportive. It's a good series.

Someone is harassing Meg Walker. The first thing that happened she did not realize that someone had come and moved it. The night her cow got loose and the rope was cut. She saw footprints thought it was small man or teenager. Meg for the first time is living by herself and liking it. Now she hears a board squeak by the kitchen table and gets out of bed. She grabs her gun and chase the guy right out of the house and shoots him.

Meg all of a sudden realizes she is bleeding bad calls her brother and tells him to come and bring his gun. When her family gets their she tells them that someone was in the house and she chased him out and shot at him. She stepped on broken flower vase the stalker had brought. As one brother takes her to the Emergency room another tracks the guy up the mountain and looses the trail when he got on a dirt bike.

Meg's family put new locks on her door, motion lights up and gets her a dog. Both feet got stitches in them and Meg is told not to walk on them till stitches come out. Her mom and new husband move in till she can walk. They take care of her animals till she is healed.

Lincoln Fox has come home to find his father's killer. He was found guilty for it when he was a teen. Lincoln has not been home since then. He has his own construction company in Texas. He brought a travel trailer and figured when he saw that house was in ruin to fix up bomb shelter for the winter till he can rebuild in spring.

The first night he is their he hears gunshots, and see a guy run across his property and hop on dirt bike. Later when the Sheriff comes looking and finds Lincoln he knows he is not the stalker because he was a lot smaller than Lincoln 6'6". The Sheriff tells him his neighbor Mrs. Walker has a stalker.

Lincoln tells the sheriff what he saw and that he was back home to find out who killed his father.
When the stalker comes back using his property Lincoln stands in the shadow and yells at him. When he mentions if he is the stalker of Mrs. Walker he runs off but not before Lincoln recongizes him.

When Lincoln tells the sheriff he knows who the stalker is. The Sheriff will check into it,but doesn't trust him to tell the truth. Later Lincoln finds out that Mrs. Walker was actually his first love Meg.

You do realize who is after Meg but you don't know why till the end. Lincoln tries to figure out what happened 18 years earlier and who set him up and why.
Lots of colorful characters. Lot of them are back from the first two of the series. Their a couple of love scenes that I skipped over. I laughed a few times. Felt sorry for everything Meg goes through. Like how strong the women characters are. Yes Meg gets hurt but she also strikes back.
I hope their are more books in the Rebel ridge series.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when finshed by Netgalley.

"At all costs" is a commonly used phrase in our culture, but rarely do we consider that the true meaning often encompasses the worth of a human life.
It's what drives us to excel when by all accounts we should actually fail.
It's what pushes us beyond physical strength to a refusal to let go.
It's what makes one person a survivor and another a victim.
And it's inherent in the vow in a wedding ceremony that holds the most meaning. . .'til death do us part. And is often the first one broken.
I believe in a forever kind of love--the kind that still endures after death, the kind with a spirit so strong that it refuses to acknowledge separation and still finds a way to communicate.
I dedicate this book to forever loves and to the people who hold onto those dreams at all costs.
