Security Force of Two

by Tena Stetler

GENRE: Paranormal Romance/Mystery


Miacoh Zane, a Special Forces veteran, returns to Aspen Ridge, Colorado a small town nestled in the Rocky Mountains, to settle his beloved grandmother’s estate. But the town holds painful memories and family secrets he wants to leave behind for good.

Candle Bearclaw, a gifted computer analyst recruited out of college by the CIA, resigns her position after fifteen years. She returns to her sleepy hometown only to discover her childhood crush has also returned and a violent crime has been committed.

Due to their covert operations experience, Candle and Miacoh are thrown together to assist Homeland Security and her father, former chief of police, with a murder investigation. As they search for the perpetrators, the case takes an unusual twist that could blow the case wide open.

When she drove up the circle driveway, a chill shot up her spine, then a strange feeling came over her, almost like someone was watching. Reaching under the seat of her SUV, she pulled out her handgun, checked the weapon to make sure it was loaded, chambered a round, and tucked it in the back waistband of her jeans, covering it with her shirt and jacket. She backed out then drove the entire driveway more slowly, checking the perimeter. Nothing. The cell phone hadn't chirped to alert her of a breach, but she checked her outside surveillance cameras, then the ones inside her home anyway. Again nothing. She shrugged off the feeling and stepped out of her SUV. Gun drawn, she flicked off the safety and turned on the laser. It didn't hurt to be safe rather than sorry.

Peeking in the window, she saw the alarm keypad was still set and secure. Then she walked around the house, entered through the back door, closed and relocked it, deactivated the alarm. Nothing was out of place. Part of her wished she'd brought Terrabyte along. Though still young, the pups tracking ability was well-developed. Terra would know if someone were in or around the cabin since they left. Back to the wall, she moved carefully through each room, nothing. When she was sure the house was clear, she sat down at the computer, laying the gun next to it. Warning windows were popped up everywhere on the screen. Someone had tried to hack into her system but hadn't gotten very farHer throat went dry as she read the message. “Poking around where you don't belong is dangerous business. Carl's death was unfortunate but an accident. Leave it be or pay the consequences.”

Fingers posed over the keyboard. She started to X out of the message but stopped. If this was a disintegrating message, she would have no proof it ever existed. Taking out her cell phone, she took a picture of the screen. The handle on the front door jiggled. She grabbed her gun and jumped up, making her way to the front bay window.

My Review:

Candle Bearclaw after fifteen years with the CIA decides she has had enough. She resigns from her job, sells her home, buys a dog, packs up everything, and heads back to her hometown where her mom and dad still live.

Candle was looking forward to a quiet life in the small little town but alas that was not going to help as the kind of work she does follows her everywhere. Candle is called in to help Dad, Homeland Security, and the FBI on a murder case.

Candle discovers that her childhood sweetheart, Miacoh Zane has also returned home to settle his mother’s estate. Miacoh is a Special Forces veteran and is also recruited to help on the same case that Candle is working on.

Security Force of Two is packed full of mystery and suspense that will keep you glued to the pages as it slowly reveals all its mystery. It will have you racing to the end to see how it all turns out. The characters are very interesting and bring a lot to the story.

While Security Force of Two was a great read it was a little slow to start. It took a while before the crime is introduced into the picture as we got to know the characters and who they are first. But once the crime was introduced the story picked up from there and took off.

I would recommend Security Force of Two to all mystery fans! Grab your copy of Security Force of Two today!
