This is book 5 of the Desert Justice series, part of the Love Inspired Suspense Inspirational Romance. Nora shows up in Death Valley to save a pregnant donkey. She doesn't expect the adventure she is going to have. She is struck by an ATV and has to stay with Scott on the farm. Scott is out to keep her alive and find who was the one that ran her over. He is determined to do more than protect her, he wants her to stay and have a future together. Can he convince her? Will they be able to solve who hit her?
I would recommend this book to anyone that wants a page turner and a story of love, reconciliation, faith and family. I love all the books in the series. It is book 5, however, you can read as a stand alone. I love this author, every book she writes is a great read! I always look forward to reading Dana's books.

More from Dana
Well here we go! Book five in the Desert Justice series features Nora (Chief Jude’s estranged sister), a wild donkey who needs rescuing, and a crime from the past that intrudes into the present. Twisty, right? I was inspired to write this story after visiting Death Valley and learning about the feral donkeys which inhabit the region. They’re cute, visitors love them, but the burros can encounter health problems and cause environmental damage if they aren’t settled into a safe area. It’s amazing to me that wild donkeys are adept at detecting underground water sources. They dig “wells” which can benefit many thirsty animals. Fascinating, right? Hope you’ll enjoy meeting Bubbles the donkey and the helpful humans who rescue her in this novel. God bless and thanks for reading!
