    Josephine Stuart is a heroine that you’ll cheer for in this carefully crafted mystery She’s an artist and muralist who gets herself in a heap of trouble while on a job in a remote mountain community There are strange happenings with accidents fires and of course murder Secure the Ranch is a well written entertaining mystery with characters full of depth that builds from the first page and doesn’t stop until the very end You won’t see what’s in store for Josephine – I guarantee it I couldn’t put this book down I couldn’t believe that this is a debut novel for Oroz It drew me into the lives of the likeable and some not so likeable characters in the story I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves mystery and suspense stories I can’t wait for the next installment to see what’s in store for Josephine

    Fans of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plumb novels will love this book Oroz's main character Josephine Stuart is an every day Jo ha ha who gets into pickle after pickle in the scenic Santa Cruz mountains Jo and her trusty side kick Solo is a woman you'll want to spend time with after the book is over Oroz has created a funny at times laugh out loud adventure that had me staying up late turning pages

    Interesting story A little slow and too descriptive Great storyline and characters though it seems to be geared for young readers

    Disclaimer If you read the review and feel there is a spoiler in it please let me know and I will remove that section Also if you have any uestions don't hesitate to ask Thank youSecure the Ranch is the first book by debut author Joyce OrozSecure the Ranch follows a mystery surrounding Josephine Stuart an artist who is hired to paint some murals for a wealthy client high in the mountains of California After strange accidents occurrences and the death of a wildlife ranger Josephine finds she is unable to set aside her curiosity and delves deep into a mystery best left alone Some subplots involve her friendship with one of her neighbors visits with her mom and dad and others that would lead to spoilersI will have to admit that the writing in this book is well done Even though I may have found myself hesitant at times to pick the book back up from other things I was doing once I did I was engrossed and read chapter after chapter The characters were also better than I imagined they would be at the beginning I had a vision of the wealthy clients to be the snobbish type and they turned out to be much better than that and I was thankful There was some nice depth to the characters and they were easy to connect withSome criticisms1 The dialogue though done well enough throughout the majority of the book had some abrupt endings to it It just felt like there was to be said but the next thing I know the story moves on to something else Mostly this happens while Josephine is searching for answers of what is going on2 There were a couple of inconsistencies in this book The main one is at the beginning when Josephine is getting ready for bed; she sets the alarm for 730 In the next chapter she is woken to music coming from the clock radio at 7Some Positives1 I really did enjoy the characters in this novel Everyone had their own voice and was easy to distinguish from the other characters The reader can easily connect with the characters2 In just about every chapter something happens to keep the reader engaged in the story Ms Oroz really knows how to keep a mystery going and giving just enough tidbits for the reader to try to figure out what is going on and who is involved3 The imagery is nicely detailed without overbearing the reader with all the details It is a nice mix of giving the author's vision while at the same time leaving out enough so the reader can fill in the restThere are reviewers who compare this with Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series Aside from having a pet bill collectors calling constantly and an overactive sense of curiosity that is about where the comparison ends I will say I did enjoy this book and if there are to be books from this author I will definitely buy them I know most of Janet Evanovich's fans are getting tired of the stale trail the plum books have been following so I would recommend this one to them for a refreshing view away from the every dayHappy reading Dimndbangr

    Very entertaining female snoop with a lovable dog mystery I enjoyed it a lot as it takes place in the California Santa Cruz mountains in towns I'm familiar with The main character is smart funny and down to earth a nice person to spend a few hours with The dog is perfect of courseThe only negative about this book is the editing or the lack of it and it gets even worse toward the end Distracting at the beginning the freuent mispellings and left off letters are aggravating when you're about to find out whodunit
