Meagan and her team discover that a previous medical injury that Kyra has would make it impossible for Kyra to be able to hang herself without help. Someone in the town knows the truth, and with more lives at risk, Megan is determined to find the killer.  Throughout the book, there becomes more than one suspect, and the reader is left mystified. Megan becomes the bait as she devises a plan to entrap the killer within the walls of Drury House.

My Thoughts

Torment in the Wind is the final installment in the Wind series. In this book, Megan shares with us her dreams for the future. We see the tough side of her but also the fragile side. Her courage in fighting crime has taken a toll on Megan’s mental health. Her dreams haunt her, and she worries that it may not be safe to have a baby with Jay. Many tragedies have happened to Megan in the other Wind series. Megan is resilient and determined to provide her town with the peace that it deserves. The police have relied continually throughout the book on her intuitive observations and keen detective skills to help solve many murders. Women particularly are drawn to this book, as Megan empowers women throughout her book series. She is financially independent, successful, intelligent, and intuitive. A great marketing strategy, this book mentions incidents that happened to Megan in other book series and associates them with current events. In the final series, all the loose ends are answered and explained. Meagan shares with us her secrets to what makes her a phenomenal lawyer. The secret is not in the pudding but with Edgar Allan Poe. The story itself is brilliant, with plenty of suspense, romance, and drama. This is an excellent book for horse lovers, lovers of mystery, suspense, and adventure books. Is there a movie in the works? There should be! You can learn more about Judy Bruce and her writing by going to her Website, Amazon and other retailers.
