Skeet Bannion is head of campus police. She is also a single mom. Her ex-husband is still wanting her back, her father is making nice with a former caregiver who happens to be about 30 years younger than he. Then there's her grandmother who has moved in to help Skeet take care of her teenaged foster son. Throw in a sheriff's detective and the tall, dark and handsome man of dubious intent and she most certainly does not need any more drama in her life.

In comes Ash Mowbray, a man now, but a bad, b
Linda Rodriguez' Skeet Bannion mysteries have become "must-reads". The Kansas City cop turned head of campus police is a fascinating character, somewhat troubled, trying to put her life back together after a divorce and a rocky relationship with her father. The addition of a teen boy to her household brings love as well as tumultuous teen emotions. Then, in Every Hidden Fear, the entire town of Brewster, Missouri seems to fall apart. But, Skeet has unexpected help in coping this time. She has he ...more
This mystery, which inhabits the borderland between a cozy and a police procedural, has a university security chief whose mother's family is Cherokee. Skeet's grandmother, quite probably my favorite character in the book, is wise and loving without being a stereotype, and Linda Rodriguez clearly brings a unique flavor to the tropes of the mystery genre without losing what makes it a great comfort read. I liked visiting the fictional town of Brewster, with all its infighting and hidden conflict.

Following Every Last Secret and Every Broken Trust Chief of Campus Police Skeet Bannion is back in Every Hidden Fear. Secrets have a way of coming back home to roost and that certainly is the case with the return of Ash Mowbray.

Back in the day he had been what would now be termed “a troubled teen.” Unfortunately for many of the residents of Brewster, Missouri the return of Ash means huge problems. Secrets long thought buried in the best of families as well as the worst are now vulnerable to the

The third in a mystery trilogy with Skeet Bannion, a campus police detective, solving another murder mystery, this was another engaging read by Rodriguez.
Skeet Bannion is head of the campus cops at a university near Kansas City, though I haven't figured out why a small university needs its own cops, or how she gets to solve crimes that aren't university related. Nevertheless, a former bad boy comes back to town to start a new business development and is soon murdered. There are lots of suspects and the solution isn't obvious till near the end. Lots of loose ends in Skeet's personal life means another book should be coming soon; at least I hope so ...more

I love this series - this is the third book and maybe the best. Main character is a Cherokee woman who has been a cop and now is head of security at a college. She is very involved in the comings and goings of the townspeople and gets involved in trying to solve murders in the town. When she needs time to put together the facts in a case, she knits and lets her mind figure it out.
