Double Duplicity, A Shandra Higheagle Mystery

About the book

On the eve of the biggest art event at Huckleberry Mountain Resort, potter Shandra Higheagle finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. She’s ruled out as a suspect, but now it’s up to her to prove the friend she witnessed fleeing the scene was just as innocent.
With help from her recently deceased Nez Perce grandmother, Shandra becomes more confused than ever but just as determined to discover the truth.

Detective Ryan Greer prides himself on solving crimes and refuses to ignore a single clue, including Shandra Higheagle’s visions. While Shandra is hesitant to trust her dreams, Ryan believes in them and believes in her. 
Can the pair uncover enough clues for Ryan to make an arrest before one of them becomes the next victim?

This is going to be among my favorite series.
I wanted to read through in one sitting, but I also wanted to make it last and enjoy the experience. I loved so much about it - the Native American theme, references to shamanism and psychic dreaming.
I also loved that while the main characters had attraction, no one immediately fell into bed with anyone else. And YES - I love the dog! 
There was one character I disliked at first mention, which shows how powerful the author's writing is. There were times you could not tell the good guys from the bad guys, and that led to more suspects.
Normally I will tell you more about a books plot, but trust me that you will enjoy this and look forward to future books in the Shandra Higheagle series.
OK - here is the plot information you must know - Shandra is having trouble accepting her own talents.

I want to read more about the secondary characters as well. I just know there are more secrets in this community that will be revealed. A fantastic start to what I know will be a popular series.

Award-winning author Paty Jager and her husband raise alfalfa hay in rural eastern Oregon. On her road to publication she wrote freelance articles for two local newspapers and enjoyed her job with the County Extension service as a 4-H Program Assistant. Raising hay and cattle, riding horses, and battling rattlesnakes, she not only writes the western lifestyle, she lives it.

All her work has Western or Native American elements in them along with hints of humor and engaging characters. Her penchant for research takes her on side trips that eventually turn into yet another story.
