After an afternoon of mind-numbingly boring surveillance in the woods, Private Investigator Raven Cane goes for a twilight jog to clear her head, only to discover a gruesome murder in the town’s most notorious cave, Hatchet Hollow. Minutes later, the impossibly handsome Lieutenant Zander Stone arrives at the scene to take over, but Raven has a hard time letting the case go ...more

Raven Cane was a hoot! The opening scene of Hatchet Hollow had me cracking up! Raven had been with the Black Rose Investigations Company for about two years and she was finally having her chance at running her own investigation. Although it was not an exciting one, she was thrilled to have her chance to prove to the Knight sisters that she had what it took to be a lead investigator. So, she had spent her day tailing a suspect and sitting at a stakeout.

Despite her excitement, the day was coming t

Hatchet Hollow is a spectacular romantic suspense by Amanda McKinney. Ms. McKinney has provided readers with a well-written book. The characters are outstanding. Raven has risen to the rank of private investigator with Black Rose Investigations. Her first case has her on a stakeout in the woods that doesn't pan out so she decides on a run. She didn't expect to find a body. Zander is a lieutenant with the local police department and wants Raven to stay away from the case. Zander and Raven's story ...more

I was hoping this book would be about another one of the sisters who co-own the Black Rose PI agency, alas it wasn’t, rather this short little read focused on one of their employees – Raven Cane and police officer/lieutenant Zander Stone. I was a little bummed at the start of this, and didn’t find any worth in Raven’s peeping tom moment, and I did wish Raven had been less unsure of herself at the start, but I’m glad I continued on the book got better as I progressed through it. I really enjoyed ...more

This book is so good that it had me hooked right from the start. I was immediately drawn to the setting of a small town with both a police department and a private investigating firm of mostly women. Raven and Zander are characters that fascinated me from the very start. The sexual tension between them kept me glued to the pages. Of course, the rumor in the back of everyone's mind that an actual witch existed in the area keeps the suspense going and the reader on edge. Toss in a few murder inves ...more

Found a new series!

After reading the first book in this series, I picked up this one and was not disappointed! Each book features a different member of the kick-butt Black Rose Investigation team, along with a new murder to solve, and new, super sexy alpha male. This one is about Raven Cane and Lieutenant Zander Stone, and I loved reading their story! Hatchet Hollow is another page-turning book filled with action, danger, mystery and a little steamy romance to go along with that. Getting the nex

I want you as my own.

Assistant turned PI Raven, is on her first case when she stumbles onto a dead body. Enter Lieutenant Zander who catches the case. They both believe that the other couldn’t want them, too old or too young, but the chemistry is off the charts. If Zander and Raven can figure out the mystery, they may be able to figure out their future as well. Super read! Enjoy!!!

Another great book in this series!

Hatchet Hollow is another amazing book by Amanda McKinney. This follow up to Devil's Gold makes it hard for me to decide which one I love more. The character development in these books is so well done. With each book you learn more and more about the great cast of characters in Devil's Den. McKinney really knows how to mix a great mystery with some very steamy romance. I can't wait to read Tomb's Tale.

This book had me flipping pages faster than I could read them - and I read pretty fast :). I instantly connected with Raven Cane, her love for organization, and drive to get things accomplished. The chemistry between her and Zander Stone - Lieutenant at the local PD- was sizzling hot!
I am so excited to begin reading the 3rd book in the Black Rose Series!
