Hart’s Ridge by Kay Bratt ~ 5⭐

Genre: Women’s Sleuths ~ Release Date: January 10, 2023

REVIEW: I’m so excited y’all! A new series is coming our way. First, I have to tell you this is the first full length novel I’ve read by Kay Bratt. I’ve really enjoyed the novellas I read of hers in the other series I’m reading by serveral authors and really wanted to try one of her own creations. This book was so good! 

I loved that Hart’s Ridge is a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. That in itself is a big pull for me. I love small towns and I have a special place in my heart for the Blue Ridge Mountains. I was very happy to spend some time there and get to know Taylor Gray who is a Sheriff’s Deputy in Hart’s Ridge. 

The book is about a 5 year old girl named Molly who wanders into a gas station on the edge of town. Molly is not speaking very much and Taylor desperately wants to reunite her with her mother. I got so involved with Taylor solving this case and don’t you know an old high school friend who is a detective is called to town to take over the case? There is so much going on and Taylor has a dog named Bernard. What more could you ask for?

I want to share all the details with you but, that would take away the fun of reading this book. I think Kay Bratt just wormed her way into my heart and onto my favorite author list. Mind you that list has grown quite long since I’ve started reviewing books. There are so many good authors out there that are not blockbuster best sellers. They are best sellers in their own way. Many self-publish and I challenge you to pick up some of these books and see if you don’t agree with me.

I highly recommend this book. You will love Taylor and you’ll dislike some of her co-workers. I think you will be as excited as I am that there are more cases to solve in Hart’s Ridge! I am so excited for the next book to come out. It is called Lucy in the Sky and is due out February 13th. You know what I will be doing for Valentine’s Day! Until next time…Happy Reading!

SYNOPSIS: If Robyn Carr and Melinda Leigh had a book-baby, Hart’s Ridge would be it. Join Kay Bratt in this small town mystery series with cases to solve, and a small-town deputy determined to do it.

When five-year-old Molly walks into a gas station on the outskirts of town, alone and barely speaking, one sheriff’s deputy is determined to reunite her with her missing mother.

Nestled gently in the Blue Ridge mountains, Hart’s Ridge is a small and yet undiscovered quaint town. That is until you dig a little deeper and learn that no matter how perfect things look, every town has its secrets. Taylor Gray has lived there since she was a kid and has clawed her way out of poverty, foster care, and then the police academy to reach her dream of being in law enforcement.

However, the townspeople aren’t the only ones that she is committed to serve and protect. She’s also the unofficial caretaker of her father and adult sisters, a family fractured by tragedy and barely keeping it together. Her role is heavy and rarely appreciated, but she’ll stop at nothing to try to piece them back together one day.

The mother of a young girl is missing. Time is of the essence and Taylor plunges into the investigation, determined to find her and reunite mother and child. When the sheriff brings a familiar face in to take charge, things begin to unravel at a pace hard to keep up with, and what they find is every law enforcement officer’s worst nightmare.

Hart’s Ridge is a standalone novel and book one of the new Hart’s Ridge mystery series, written by Kay Bratt, International Best-Selling Author of Wish Me Home and True To Me.
