Sins of the Past Novella Collection

About the Book
In Dee Henderson's Missing a Wyoming sheriff is called to Chicago when his elderly mother goes missing. Paired with a savvy Chicago cop, the two realize her disappearance is no accident, and a race against the clock begins.

Dani Pettrey returns to Alaska with Shadowed introducing readers to the parents of her beloved McKenna clan. Adventure, romance, and danger collide when a young fisherman nets the body of an open-water swimming competitor who may actually be a possible Russian defector.

Lynette Eason's Blackout delivers the story of a woman once implicated in a robbery gone wrong. The loot has never been found--but her memory of that night has always been unreliable. Can she remember enough to find her way to safety when the true culprit comes after her?

My Thoughts
I absolutely love this author's early work but ever since she started writing again after her long hiatus I'm honestly not a fan. That being said I was a little wary of this novella, though that didn't stop me. It felt very much like an episode of a crime drama which was kinda fun and different. I would have enjoyed a bit more romance but at the same time I was glad that they didn't suddenly make it a big thing which would have just felt way too fake. Overall it wasn't a bad read but it definitely wasn't a favorite.

Honestly this story is the main reason I wanted to get my hands on this collection. I adore Dani's Alaskan Courage series and I was so excited to get the story of the McKenna's parents! Thankfully it was everything I was hoping for and more! From their amusing first meeting, to when they visited the site of the future McKenna home, to them discussing what they hoped their family would look like, was absolutely adorable and perfect! I loved how it was set during the Cold War since I don't think I've ever read a book set during that time. And the mystery kept me on my toes! It was definitely easy to see where their kids got their adventurous natures from!

This was an action-packed novella and was quite fun to read! I was totally drawn into figuring out the mystery of what had happened the night of the robbery years ago and who was involved. Chad and Macey were great characters and I liked them together. All in all it was a great short story!
