Hell and High Water: A Maeve Malloy Mystery by Keenan Powell

(Thank you to the publisher and TLC Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book:

Alaskan attorney Maeve Malloy isn’t sure she’s cut out to be a lawyer. All she wants is to be treated like everyone else. Hiding her past, she takes a kitchen job at a remote lodge while she sorts out her life. The day after she lands at Fox Island, a tourist is killed and a rampaging bear has trapped her and the lodge’s guests inside.

The locals cops can’t get to the lodge because of a storm so they ask Maeve for help. Her cover is blown and she’s thrown back into investigating the who, why, and wherefore of the murder before a killer among them can strike again.

my thoughts:

Wow! What a story! I absolutely LOVED Hell and High Water: A Maeve Malloy Mystery by Keenan Powell. It was fantastic! Talk about a gripping, suspense-filled whodunit. 

Maeve is an attorney who was suspended by the bar.  She served her suspension and as a result is beginning to question whether or not law is the right field for her. So, she takes a job as a dishwasher at a remote lodge on Fox Island. She's barely started her job when a body is found. The cops can't get to the lodge, because a huge storm has hit. So, they ask Maeve to help out by investigating. Talk about being in the wrong place. Yep, Maeve is forced back into her role of attorney and must use her investigative skills to figure out who among the group is the killer. Yikes! What a situation to be in! Oh, and did I mention the bear. There is a bear hellbent on attacking the people inside the lodge. How crazy! A murderer and a rampaging bear - what's Maeve to do?!

Keenan Powell has written a terrific mystery that will have you guessing all the way through. There are twists and turns that will surprise you and shock you. There are so many suspicious guests that you won't be able to help but suspect them all. And there is a murderer on the loose who may just strike again. Talk about a fun and thrilling read! You will be swept away right from the start and keep on reading until late into the night. This is one book you won't want to put down for anything. Its sooo good!!!

I would happily recommend Hell and High Water for fans of Keenan Powell and anyone looking for their next great read - you will LOVE this book!! I know that I can't wait to read more of Powell's books. Definitely check this one out!
