About the Book
Book: Secrets Resurfaced
Author: Dana Mentink
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 2, 2020
When new evidence surfaces about a tragic boating accident that put her ex-boyfriend’s father in prison, private investigator Dory Winslow’s determined to look into it. But now someone’s dead set on silencing her. And working with Chad Jaggert—the father of her secret child—may be the only way to survive the treacherous truth about the tragedy that once tore them apart.Click here to get your copy!
As the fourth book in the Roughwater Ranch series, I’m thrilled with how each book developed the characters and offered a different view of the ranch. No two books resembled each other in any way, making the series fresh and enjoyable even as the characters ran for their lives.
Dory and Chad have some serious hurdles to overcome. A painful past that makes use of a secret baby trope is not easy to write well, but Dana Mentink pulled it off in a way that felt realistic and not merely vengeful. And, just saying, everyone should have dogs like Jingles and Meatball.
I love how the cast of characters revolves through the entire series with each couple taking a spotlight role but without leaving behind those we’ve grown to love. With each book, you’ll discover new people while still getting a glimpse into everyone’s lives as they continue moving forward.
Dana Mentink never fails to impress with her spiritual threads, and Secrets Resurfaced is no different. Subtle enough to be realistic but strong enough to hook you right in the heart, her ability to show a character through trials while bringing them closer to God is impressive.
As I’ve come to expect, the danger will leave you biting your nails and holding your breath while the hero and heroine’s slow return to love and trust give that much needed “awww” factor to break up the tension.
I requested a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Well, it’s been a wild ride through the Roughwater Cowboy series! Here we are at the end, with youngest brother Chad’s story. Fortunately, the rest of the clan (Mitch, Liam and Helen) are here to lend a hand when the man Chad’s father was jailed for killing comes back to life. Helping out also is Jingles the hapless dog, and a new member of the canine family, three legged Meatball. Throw in a killer on the loose and a secret child, and we’ll have a ‘hold onto your hat’ finish to this series. Thanks for coming along with me! God bless you!
